Impromptu Photo Shoot

I walked into my dining room this morning and the light was perfect for a little impromptu photo shoot on the buffet.  I grabbed some random objects that were on the buffet (at the moment the buffet is nothing more than a storage surface) and started shooting.
And just in case you were curious, this is how random the buffet looks at the moment.
I found the old wood piece at an antique store and paid $2.00 for it.  I'm pretty sure they thought I was crazy but I think it makes a perfect backdrop for photos.

Happy Leap Year Day!

  1. Funny - not the photos! The photos are awesome. Funny that I thought you had a r-e-a-l-l-y rustic buffet, until I saw the last shot! You have a way of making everything look great.

  10. You are so right Jane about the old wood!Love the potatoe mashers in the background,I remember seeing them in use as a child,either my late Mother or Grandmother must have used them,I think they would be a handy self defence implement now!

  12. Jane,
    I always second guess myself about those kind of things.
    In the long run, it's $2.00 well spent!! Great back drop
    for those pieces you have there :)

    Lovely photos!

  16. It may be random, Jane, but it works! I love all the elements you have here ~ fabric, wood, ceramic, natural elements in the acorns, glass; I think as different as they all seem they all work together beautifully. Great brown and white transferware. The brown and white is my favorite!

  19. Normally, I am not a fan of brown, BUT this is the second time today that I found brown very appealing to me. I'm traveling to Pittsburgh for work. I started feeling hungry and realized I was near the exit for Pittsburgh Mills, what a coincidence ;-) Anyway, wandering through Penney's in the purse section, I found a stunning chocolate brown purse with silver embellishments. Normally brown is accented with gold; I don't like gold so I rarely even consider a brown handbag. BUT, this shade of chocolate was just gorgeous with the silver and now, your brown & white transfer ware has me liking brown again...amazing. Thanks for sharing the great photos, Jane, you have a gift. OH, the purse was Liz Claiborne, $70.00, way out of my purse price range, darn it!

  24. Beautiful pictures, Jane. I'm absolutely loving your blog!!! I just about fell off my chair when I saw the first two pictures though. I own an antique store and had a customer come in just this morning looking for pieces with that exact pattern, in that colour. It's not a pattern that I see often - in fact I only recall ever seeing two pieces myself. What are the chances that you would post pictures of those pieces on the same day that I'm asked for them? Awesome. :-)

  25. The pictures look worthy for a magazine spread Jane. I love those treasured pieces.

  26. I passed up a brown transferware plate with a "cow scene" at a local shop last week. I think your post is telling me to go back and buy it.....if it's still there!! Beautiful photos.

    Have a happy day. Lisa

  33. I just spent two days reading ALL of your posts. I was so drawn to all of your projects that I had to see them all. Now I have to go through all of my garage sale boxes and rethink what I want to sell. :)

    Also, I have wanted to rent a booth for several years. It is way out of my comfort zone. Any advice? Wish I could go thrifiting with you. We would have a great time. Take care.
