I spotted this a while back and just thought it was delightfully simple.
All that's needed is some frames, glass jars or vases, some plates, and some yummy chocolate anything. It's lovely as it is, but I imagine it could take on a whole new personality depending on the color frames, vases, plates, and food. And then what if each glass jar/vase had an old black and white photograph in it - or new black and white photography, any photograph. Or music pages, old letters, dollies, flowers, or pretty rocks or sticks, chocolate kisses. . . it's endless what you could do. Somebody, please, have a party and do this!
Poor Bub. The older boys are working again today with their dad and he's left here with three sisters because he's just not at the stage where he can really aid in the type of work they are doing.
He tried to be a good brother. I mean, he made tents in the living room with the girls - that is, until they decided to play dress up and turn the tents into a "ballerina party." He left and came back in Shelton's football pants and jersey and flag football flags hooked around his waist. Soon there were girly complaints that Bub had knocked down the "door" and was trying to dance too hard in the tent and so everything was falling down.
The girls have had dancing time, dress up time, playing house time, nap time, tea time, jumping on the bed time, dvd time, helping mom put away laundry time, trying on shoes time, pretending-all-sorts-of-stuff time. . . and none of this remotely appeals to Bub. Which really, I'm not complaining - kind of glad to know.
Here are the little girls playing on my bed just a little while ago. I'd just gotten around to taking off the winter comforter and replacing it with a light weight white one (we bought the first year we were married) and antique off-white quilt throw. I think the little girls thought with fresh new coverings, it needed to broken in for play. I agreed.
Lake likes to tilt her head in pictures, so Brighton did too :)
(I've been using my old, very temperamental 40D Canon these days as I save to replace my other camera that drowned in the creek. These particular shots I used my 50mm lens (my only lens that didn't die with the camera!), shot manual with aperture at f/2.5, ISO at about 1000-1600.
No flash of course with window shades open and back door open for light. I'm sure I could have put the ISO a little less, but was more interested in making sure their action was clear then whether or not there was grain in the picture. When capturing indoor action shots, play around until you find what works best in your setting - don't rely on automatic settings to cut it for you. No editing/photoshop necessary.)
