Your Monday Photo Shoot: Patterns And Textures


"Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment."

-Claude Monet

Your Monday Photo Shoot: Find an interesting patter or texture somewhere in your home. Take a picture of it.

-John Scalzi (By The Way)

One day I was out window shopping, I was just wanting to be out in the sun, when I passed by the window of a small women's specialty store, and there in the window was a beautiful pink floral scarf. The pattern was so beautiful, just pink roses contrasted with a lovely shade of green for the stems and leaves of the roses. Being a girly-girl I couldn't pass it up. I rarely wear scarves, unless it is on a really cool night, and then it depends on the outfit I am wearing, so I use the scarf as throw for a small table I keep in my bedroom. On top of the scarf is a pretty art-deco vase, with a pink silk rose, and some rose scented potpourri in it. The day I bought the scarf, I couldn't take my eyes off it's pretty pattern, and even now, all these years later, it still makes me feel happy and calm just by looking at it. :)

Very pretty, and I love your description...those items that catch our eye and bring us back to certain memories or take us to certain places emotionally are treasures to hold on to.

very, very pretty!!! I would've bought it too. I like to use scarfs as table toppers. They make a beautiful addition. I did the assignment too. Check out my aol blog to see. :-))

Although I just posted my vegetable soup recipe on my blogger blog. The photo could easily work for the assignment as well, I think. :-))
