5 Random Friday Finds

Find No. 1


Glen wanted to go to the driving range on Friday afternoon. I do not golf, saves so much aggravation that way, but I do like to go along and watch. I set up my folding camp chair at a safe distance, pulled out my book and started to read. Then I noticed these lovely black bag holders and knew I had to get a photo with my phone. I love how this turned out processed with Distressed FX.

Find No. 2


I find it amazing it took us 11 years to figure out we could trade out the ugly "can" style lights on our track lighting in the kitchen and replace them with smaller, less noticeable ones that put out more light. Also replaced the single ugly "can" style one over the sink with this beautiful glass pendant.

Find No. 3


This door had not been painted in the 11 years we have lived here, until yesterday it was basic white. After painting it yesterday, I know that I don't like this color. Back to the paint chips. Do you like my furry new rug in front of the door?

Find No. 4


I find it interesting that I can sign up for oodles of photography classes without even a moments hesitation, but when it comes to a writing class, I have pondered this for a month now. Maybe it is because I don't have high expectations for my photography, but my writing is another story. I have very high expectations because it is my passion, and maybe I am afraid the teacher is going to discovery that I suck at writing. But I am determined to establish a daily writing routine and this class is going to help me get to that goal.

Find No. 5


I found a new app. for my iPhone that I have been having fun with this week, My Sketch. I love to take the tradition flower shot and do something different with it. I like what it did here. This is the original...

  1. I actually love the new aqua colour of your door - it's one of my favourite colours and it makes me dream! It looks good with the wooden mid-brown frame too! Have you considered living with it for a few weeks to see how you feel about it?! Yes, nice new furry rug that goes with the door frame!

  3. Love your furry rug. I've got a schnauzer-shaped one in black that I keep tripping over. Good luck with the writing course. I'm sure they'll be very supportive and you'll have a ball. All the best, Bonny

  4. Oh yes - love the furry rug! I like the color of your door, too - but I know what you're saying. I've done this so many times - I just can't tell from a paint chip - and I always have a very definite color in kind, and when it's not right, it's not right. I got a chuckle out of the golf thing - I think I would like golf, but it don't play, saying I have enough frustrations in my life right now. Best of luck with your writing class! I'm sure your instructor won't find that you're bad at it - rather, you'll take it to another level!

  7. OMGosh, someone who agrees on the canned light ugliness! My husband thinks they are the best and I don't like them at all. I do like the pendant you chose. I'll have to remember that. And, I, do LOVE the aqua door! I've had that app for quite a while...forgot about it. Thanks for the reminder! Great finds. Thanks.

  9. I'd suggest living with the paint color for a bit before trying another. It's a dramatic change from basic white, and sometimes it just takes a little while for your eye to get used to the "shock." I do think it's a pretty color, although only you know if it's the right one. (Have you ever considered painting the trim white?) I love your furry rug - it's a nice warm accent to the room. And your new glass pendant is very pretty, too.
    I have My Sketch on my iPad but I didn't know it could do THAT! I see some play in my future.... Good for you on taking the writing class. No way is anyone going to think that you "suck at writing"!!!

  17. Every time I have painted something blue I have immediatly realized that I hated it. You just know when you can be comfortable around a color and when you can't. Love your rug!

    did you decide to take the class? It looks good -- but my writing really does suck so I will stick with photography. ; )
