I came in from walking the dogs and this was on the counter (I moved the spoon in the salt cellar slightly, but it was just sitting there like that). Worth a little side trip to play with all the shadows and light. The geranium broke the other day when I was watering and I didn’t think it would survive in water. The salt cellar was my present to myself when I moved into this house. Found it on West Colorado Avenue. The picture is one I found cheap, cheap, cheap somewhere when we redid our old kitchen. And the vase was a present from my friend Renate, of course. She brought it back from one of her trips home to Germany.
In other news: I have a cover for the Australian edition of The Lost Recipe for Happiness and will post as soon as I can figure out how to turn a pdf into a jpg.
What beautiful thing have you seen today?

I downloaded and used this before and it worked to convert a file.
I just love the new US cover, I hope ours is just as good!
The first thing that jumped out at me was that the illuminated middle is in the shape of a house!
Did you do that on purpose?
Love the vase.
Denise, it’s crazy, isn’t it? But no, the shadow was just there and I let it do its thing.
Life imitating art? Great shot, Barbara.
Some other gorgeous photo-ish bloggers I love, and I think you’d like, too.
When you post your photos, you remind me of them, and they remind me of you.
(and I’m browsing your archives because I swore it was you who posted about a contemporary romance author and said the book was wonderful and now I cannot find it…)
Ooooh, thanks for those links, Eva! I just had a nice ramble. If you like these, you should also check out http://www.pinchmysalt.com
Can your remember anything else about the author I posted about? Maybe I’ll remember.
What a wonderful blog she has! Some photographers have cameras for eyes and they make it look as simple as blinking.
I found the post-it was Christine Ridgeway’s and I ordered Do Not Disturb. Thank you, again!
