Studio Friday

This week's topic for Studio Friday (suggested by christine) is SPARKLE/SHINE or SHIMMER.

I enlisted my talented husband's photography skills to get this shot of one of the many sparkly/shiny/shimmery things in my studio. Then I sent him downtown to his studio (mine is in our house) to get a picture so he could join in the fun, too. Here's his entry.

Anyway, the pictures are of my jar of Twinkling H2Os. Love those things.

The unfortunate thing is that there's not great light in there, so clear photos without flash are tough. We live in house from the 1920s, with all the charms and hazards. That includes original light fixtures and original electrical wiring. When we moved (just 3 years ago), we actually had to have all the outlets switched from 2-prong to 3-prong. There were no 3-prong outlets in the whole house until we moved in. In this day and age, that's just crazy, I tell ya.
