Texture Tuesday - Still eDition

This Weeks Theme - Still 

textured with last week's freebie simple at soft light - 75% opacity

Dear friends,

Welcome to another Texture Tuesday. Thanks for stopping by....and sharing your beautiful textured art!

This weeks theme - STILL

Next Tuesdays theme ....Tuesday, March 4th.

Free & Easy.... 


Hope this post finds you well.....

I've been desperate for a little solitude.... It fills me up.... feeds my soul.....

Life is different now..... seems I have very little quiet....... 

But this afternoon....I came back from my walk....and discovered..... absoute silence....true bliss.... 20 minutes.... then it was gone.


My 20 Minutes of Bliss

I've been craving chocolatey treats.....but I'm trying hard to eat only healthy things....Anyhow.... today.... I had a few Dare simple pleasure chocolate biscuits (low-cal....with very little nutritional value I'm sure.....but still..... quite nice) I sprinkled some sugar-free chocolate covered peanuts into the mix....... Enough to satisfy the craving.... 'smile'....

Some days you just NEED a treat.

I didn't drink the milk... but had to photograph my new milk bottle (from Michaels) along with one of my new and oh so sweet paper straws.... (a lovely gift from a friend...xo)

Confession....I had a diet coke with my snack....hanging head....  (that's a discussion for another day)....


My Super-Simple Still Image Recipe

All images processed in LR then into photoshop for a layer of last week's texture soft light.... and varying opacities (65-85%)....I absolutley love the papery touch it added to the photos.....

confession: after 2 months of good eating I had a coke yesterday. I told hubby last night and after he rolled his eyes I wondered if I should recall to him the beer he had on Friday night/ I held my tongue. I guess temptation is making the rounds! A touch of dark chocolate does a woman good however. Really love that last photo.

I love quiet, too, Kim. And don't get much of it with my "new" life. Something to be thankful for, for sure! Love the milk bottle! Not sure how you shot these, with your hands around a milk bottle - always the artist! Have a blessed week!

Simply swooning over these photos, and chocolate cookies! My daily "have to"... 2 pieces of dark chocolate every day - that equals 6 bites. Sigh. Wonderful theme this week… take it …slow and ….easy dear friend! xxoo

i think you deserve a treat!! I deserve one also! in fact we all do...let's all have treats

Kim, even before reading your thoughts, your work already inspired a sort of quiet peace and contemplation in me... I'm so thankful too for those (short) moments of total self-indulging quiet! You deserve those moments (as we all do, I'm sure!) and I'm very happy about the healthy and delicious looking photos you offer with your thoughts. I remember vividly the ice-cold 'school-milk' we got in winter months; it came in maybe 2dl glass bottles with a alu-foil on top.... mmmh!

You are inspiring me to think out of the box with my photography. I really want to try my hand more at some set-ups like you do. So fun. I love this set.

Kim, I just picked up some of those sweet milk bottles a couple weeks back while visiting The Paper Source. Now I wish I had been to Michaels, as I'm pretty sure they would be less expensive there. Ha ha... I have the same paper heart straws, too. :) I was going to use the shots for my Valentine's Day shot, but then thought I'd ahem... 'make' something instead. Oh! That was, well, interesting. I think I'll stick to milk bottle and straws next time... ;)

I love quiet. It is how I replenish and re-charge. Without it I am a total mess. I also have very little of it around here, but I so need it. So, I understand.

Happy you gave yourself the treats. :)

Love your shots this week.

Warm hug,
