A weeks worth of Shadows...

Sunday, January 3, 2010











My Submissions: (1) Necklace by designer Lisa Leonard that I had the great luck of winning through our.city.lights in early November. One of my favorite accessories. Not sure if you can see it in the photo, but it's a heart with a smaller heart inside and inscribed with 'I hold your heart in mine'. Isn't that a lovely sentiment? (2) Taken beneath a small tree in my yard that was packed with birds seconds before I tried to sneak a photo. They all flew away before I could snap it... never make it as a paparazzi, but was still happy with the view. (3) A mixed media piece by Adeline of Lady Croissant. Part of an amazing little package that she sent me as a prize in mid-November. A mix of photographs, music and licorice (from Oslo... delicious!!). Might be thinking that's a lot of prizes? But I swear, I think it had to do with the month. It's my birthday month and the nicest things seem to happen to me in November. (4) Paper flowers, taken yesterday at La Placita Olvera. One of my most loved places in Los Angeles. If you've never been and are anywhere near you should stop by if only to try the food. Best Mexican food and an abundance of restaurants with various price ranges.

Thank you so much again to Diana and Adeline for the treasures! And to Tracey for her inspiring Shadow Gallery! Wishes for a great new week everyone. Be sure to tune in tomorrow for a big announcement... big!

How magical! And you must have the golden touch, winning so many giveaways! Congratulations!

Isn't it funny how animals are so camera-shy? The tree photo is my favorite, though. But now I'm wishing I had some Mexican food...

What can I say, Oscar Wilde is always a genius. Do you know his quote "I can resist everything but temptation"?

drollgirl said...

well look at your lovely shots! just gorgeous!

and i'd much rather be in the shadows than in the sunlight. hahaha. maybe i just worry about wrinkles. and the heat makes me want to die. lordy, i am dramatic like that. ahhahaha.

hope all is well! :)

Elizabeth Marie said...

Absolutely stunning!! The necklace is amazing.

Olvera is the best! One day, ONE DAY we will have lunch! :)

I'll email you-but-bumping into ex's is the worst. I really think they should be banished to an island or something. I know you would have been just fine though!!

Big news!! I'm excited!!
