it doesn't say apples

A little photographic tour of Melissaville.

I couldn't resist this little wooden box at a yard sale last year. Those aluminum (I think) horseshoes were from the same sale.

Love those vintage bingo cards and photo corners. I have such a hard time actually using them in anything!
I use pieces of cardboard as a surface to mix paints on. Sometimes the palettes themselves end up being beautiful:

And now my other workspace, my little computer desk:

That awesome lamp is one of a pair I scored at a yard sale for 30 bucks.  Some of my collection of thrifted religious statues. I couldn't resist pulling these off the windowsill and setting up a little photoshoot.

The camera I use is borrowed, so I don't know it very well. I am hoping to get a  new one soon - my very own camera to have and to hold and get to know. I am so glad that I started blogging. It has gotten me back into photography, which I have always really enjoyed and wanted to explore more.

I am so happy with how these came out. Warm and kind of moody. Haha, just like me!
