An idea popped into my head just a few minutes ago and so I had to act on it ... of course I have nothing else to do ... Ha!
I grabbed my wide angle lens and set out for some photo fun.
I was out a few days ago shooting a model for an upcoming book, and I had her lay with her belly flat on the ground and I did the same, and then snapped away. I remember how nice and warm the grass felt and how connected I felt to the earth ... such a great thing to try.
Here I am flat on my stomach with my camera resting on the grass. This is the back of my house and to the right you can see my favorite tree ... Yummy bacon avocado!
Berklee loved the fact that I was right down on the ground at her eye level. She came and gave me lots of slurpy kisses.
Then I gradually turn in place and snapped photos along the way.
This is the very back of my yard ... and just yesterday, sitting on the back wall was a beautiful momma opossum and 3 babies ... here's the shot! The baby was yawning.
And this is the side yard and the "Man Cave" aka ... "My Studio" ... as soon as all the kids are off to college!
And that's it ... a full 360 degree view on my backyard!
I have never done a giveaway here on my blog, but thought that today ... the day that my book Stash Happy Applique (Lark Books) is officially out and about in the book stores, was the perfect day to start a giveaway! Right?
So here it is ... a copy of my book, and this adorable house pillow! So fun don't you think?
The book is packed with super cute applique items from wearable, home decor and gifty things as well.
Check out these happy woodsy Gnomes ... so cute don't you think?
Anyways ... here's what you need to do if you want to win that house pillow and a copy of my book. Starting right now ... Tuesday April 3rd, leave me a comment here on my blog, anything really ... I love funny animal stories, and then on Monday April 9th I'll pick the winners name randomly from a basket!
Good Luck ... Oh and if you'd like to purchase the book, you can find it here.
