Photography Classes!

I'm still doing my photography classes and each week I need to take photos to edit so this week I took along these photos I had taken of a tablescape (no-one else had photos like this, I think they all thought I was mad!).

I seem to be leaning towards red lately - maybe beacause I'm decorating with red at my beach house but this week I bought this gorgeous bunch of red roses for $5.00 (late on a Saturday afternoon just before the shop closed) so that was the start of my table.

I love this gorgeous blue and white china (it's called Calico). I had been collecting it for a while when a lady who owns a local giftware shop was selling all her china at a reduced rate so I was able to buy heaps more - how lucky was that!

This is another of my cloths I use at the giftshop. As white china is so fashionable at the moment I need lovely cloths to build up the displays. 

I just love flowers in a teapot. I have a couple of old enamel ones which look great with daisies in them.

This gorgeous cheese dome was one of the pieces I bought for 50% off - what a bargain.

Mr FH and I had a quick trip to the city this week. We went to see Neil Diamond (yes, I know I'm showing my age!), got the car serviced, had a facial and a haircut and had luch with the kids all in 24 hours. How's that for a rushed trip!!

Have a lovely week!

That is so cute! I love the red stripes and the calico china. It's darling!

I had to laugh because it's true... tablescapers are the most misunderstood people on earth, LOL! They all think we're loopy, but hey, who cares! Your table is too cute to worry about it, and the excitement of setting a cute table is something those plebians will never understand. LOL!

Great job!

Very cute table. Your blue dishes are so pretty, and look great with the red. I especially loved the shots where they have that softened look to them. Very pretty!!
Blessings, nellie

That Calico china is so pretty! And you have some charming pieces along with the plates. Maybe you'll win your photography classmates over to tablescaping! Your photos look great!

Hi, Suzy! I am so glad to hear that you were able to find a lot of that fabulous calico china for a great price. It is so pretty and so can use it a million and one ways and make it look different every time! Really like the cheese dome. People don't use those much here anymore, but they should. They are so classy! Looks like your photography class is going well. Keep up the good work!
