It's Fun to Find Stuff

Kim Klassen has started a new link up called Friday Finds. This is what I found at my second favorite antique store in Colorado City, TX a couple weeks ago. I don't think the pitcher is all that old but the color was to die for. (It said FTD on the bottom.) There were 2 sizes of the cobalt blue bottle. I should have gotten them both. They just happened to go perfectly with the little bouquet I had just picked.

This was my before. What a difference! Good thing I shoot in raw. I believe I was attempting 'total' manual settings that day.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Love the colors and composition in the second to last one. All are beautiful. I agree you should have gotten both bottles. You can never have too many :)

  2. Gorgeous flowers and wonderful colour combinations - the vases were a great find!

  3. Marvelous color the jar and pitcher have and I love your playfulness arranging them so nicely.

  4. Oh love the last shot I am really getting into shots from above...

  5. I adore your composition and the way you've edited the photos - the can / pitcher is beautiful ... The form and the color, and the texture ~ such a lovely find!

  6. Such a lovely collection of images you've played with here as I really like the variety of things you have to play with. Those flowers are so cheery and give such a happy feel.

    Beautiful editing ... and I love the from above shot !
    Nice week,

  8. Faux rétro is so legit. That pink pitcher is beautiful! I love the entire collection of images, but especially the one where the pink blossoms are whispering in the 'ear' of the pitcher. Poetry.
