It's Show and Tell Monday at Make Mine Pink. Well, my poor old sewing machine went sneakers up last week--it's currently at the spa getting rejuvenated. I think I should do the same for me!!
It was a very exciting week for me regardless! Joyce Lucas, owner of Make Mine Pink, posted last week that there was a request for Victorian parlor items to be featured in a magazine, Country Victorian. I was not going to participate because I felt I was too new at this. Then after a little thought, decided to take a chance and send in a picture of two.
Some of my pink sisters and Joyce (affectionately known as Mama Bear) offered encouragement and also reminded me that the worst that could happen was to get a no as an answer. So, off went the first picture. I have to tell you, it is pretty awful--photography is not a strong point over here! Unbelievably, I got a response that afternoon that the woman at the magazine was interested if I could get better photography. I have a friend that is a photographer, so I figured I would ask him---noooooooo, in the middle of a big job.
So, that left me to my own devices! More suggestions from my pink sisters and Mama Bear and I got together a few props and waited for the sun to move around the deck so the lighting would be good. My show and tell this week is the best photograph I have ever taken! I know I still have a long way to go, but it's my best and I am happy with it. Whether I get in the magazine or not, I have learned a whole lot from this experience. I'll be much more ready for the next opportunity!! Thank you for all your encouragement, Pinkies!
By the way, this is my Old Fashioned Rose Potpourri.
