Sally gave us the prompt of

Our half way point in the journey and
our prompt is ours to choose.

I didn't make last week's post due to surgery.
Plantar Faciitis
Not so bad.

I am focusing on being good, staying off of it,
icing and healing.

Please visit Sally's blog to see what everyone 
else is focusing on.
Should be good!

Lensbaby Project {June}

Summer in full bloom!

My hubby and I headed to our local gardens to scout
out spots for me to shoot in. It was so amazingly beautiful
and peaceful at 7:30 am! Loved every minute of it.

I love the coloring in these.

The gorgeous pink edge.

Pure green and lush.

For those fleet of foot! 
(love my son's new socks)

Next in our circle is

Please hop over and see what this month brought
for these wonderful photographers!

Whoa - check it out!

A post about beading!
Who would have known......

Znet shows sent me some of these wonderful glass
conch shell beads!

Seriously, love them.

Here is what I have created thus far
(I still have red and orange to play with)

Wine glass charm
Kinda bummed, the charm looks like it is moving.
But this is on MY glass and I love it.

Emerald is the Pantone color of the season,
so I am right in step!

This is my favorite one!
The blue shell in a MOP square
hung on blue leather.
So simple, so elegant. Goes with everything.

I can't wait to play with the red and orange,
just waiting for the bead muse to catch up, she has
been sleeping for a while now.

Focus on Life - Week 24 {Green}

GREEN!  The color of balance, learning, growth and harmony! GREEN evokes feelings of calm and symbolizes self-respect and well being.  What a great color to focus on!

I can do green!

I was out scoping places for shoots and came
across these adorable ones in a beautiful
green field. With all the water we have had
this year, things are so lush and full of life.

Hop on over to Sally's blog and see
what green everyone else found!

Focus on Life - Week 23 {Typography}

This week Sally is asking us to look at the written word, 
to look at fonts, are some more pleasing than others? 
Do some draw you in?

Small confession - I was at Barnes and Noble this weekend....

I immediately pulled out my iPhone and took a few
shots. I love all the different fonts - from 
children's books to magazines. 
The color, size, lines. 
All intriguing.

The shapes

The use of color in the font

Quite possibly my favorite!

The depth and feeling

I love the jagged lines in the title

The shots of food are simply stunning!!!
(Had to buy this one, great recipes)

Please visit Sally's blog to see what other
wonderful typography others found.

Focus on Life - Week 22 {Foodie}

I jumped at this prompt this week.
With the long weekend, and a party on
Memorial Day - I knew exactly what I was
going to photograph.
So divine!
Ice cream sandwiches stacked cross wise
covered in cool whip and drizzled
with chocolate and caramel magic shell.
The kids loved, loved this!
Please hop over to Sally's blog
to see what other wonderful foods were found.
