{Friday Finds} - a New Link-Up Party

Hello friends....

Happy Friday. How are you? I hope well.

I just got off a lovely facetime connect....  my third this week.... Wow, connection with people who 'get it'....totally awesome.

I wanted to pop in and tell you about a new link-up idea... hoping you might want to join in...... I'm calling it Friday Finds.... It officially begins Friday, but I did add a link-up below if you care to share this week. 

Here's how it will work.....

Every Friday I will share a recent 'find' photo or 2........

I don't think a week goes by that I don't find a treasure or two.... The finds can be bought or found..... from antiques, to pretty posies... heart shaped stones, maybe a rusted old tin, a beautiful new book ..... anything goes....So many possiblities... and no... you don't have to find it on Friday... 'smile'.

Let's celebrate our finds.

One of the best things about a new find. is often the story behind the discovery. Don't you think?

Anyhow, I would love to see your finds ... The link up will remain open all week, so feel free to link up throughout the week. To play along, simply post a Friday Find photo on your site, instagram or flickr then pop over here and link up.... (just like our TT link ups)..... No special processing or textures required... simply share a pretty photo of a fab find.....

I will have the official link up details and a Friday Find button ready for next week.... 

My Friday Finds

A bit about this weeks finds......

I gotta begin with this lovely pottery .... isn't it extraordinary?

I went to the Trestle Greenhouse to check out the bedding plants....and came home with this beautiful piece of art... The owner is an amazing potter..... this is her work. I had no idea Eleanor has been making such beauitful pottery. (I need to get out more).... This is just one of the many alternative fired pieces I fell in love with.

Oh my... I wish you all could hold it in your hands..... the depth, texture...shape.... beyond beautiful!

Before I hit the greenhouse, I popped by a local shop, Carol's Time Again Treasures.....a treasure lover's dream..... I was on the hunt for unique linens.... jackpot... the sweet doily in my photos was just one of several lovelies I found...  so pretty, don't you think?

Imagine the stories it could tell. 'smile'.

And so that's my Friday Finds.....Let's see yours.....


Before I go.... I haven't posted a lot about my upcoming course, Start to Finish... But, I can not wait to dive in..... It's going to be everything I love about my work....all wrapped into one class. 

I will walk you through my creative process .... from conception to completion....... with all the details in between... inspiration, styling, photos or video of the shoot space.... camera details, lighting, props and last by never least...the processing.... 

It's exactly what I dream of sharing in a LIVE class. Anyhow, there's still spots left if you are interested. You can find all the details HERE.

Also Round Trip (my Lightroom class) and Picture Pro-cess are open for Summer Sessions.... This means instant access to all the class content ..... Check out the details on my class page.

Finally, way back when... I talked about offering mentoring sessions.... I think the time is almost here. I will have more details soon.. but they will involve one hour 'connects' via facetime, skype or virtual conferencing.... I will be open to talk creativity, goals, website/blog ideas, one on one processing assistance etc.... More soon....

I better run... I'm off to town for groceries...and some shopping at Lady of the Lake.... It doesn't get much better than that....

Have a beautiful weekend my friends....

This sounds fun! But can we just shoot objects we already own? My condo is like a thrift shop and art and craft supply store all rolled into one :~) All I have to do is open a cupboard or a box and find something I'd forgotten about :~) I don't need, nor can I afford, to buy more "stuff" :~/

What a unique idea. Went to the antique shop called "The Barn" last weekend.. Guess I'll shoot what I found there!!! Even if it was a Saturday!!!

Such a great idea Kim. Mine is technically a beautiful fine but it was simple and there..found this weed growing on the path one afternoon last week on a school pickup trip.

Very fun, Kim! We are blessed with so many things each week, the challenge of this linky will be to decide which one to share!

Friday Finds will be fun! It reminds me of show-and-tell from school! We were always so excited to bring something in on show-and-tell day!
