"Like a dream" - that is the theme for this week's Texture Tuesday - or should I rather say "was", as I'm painfully aware of the fact that it's Wednesday already...?.

I didn't have the slightest idea, how difficult that would become with no sun and overall bad light to shoot in. I took several photos of flowers, tried my best in PSE... no, not dreamtlike... then the same routine with bowls...

Long story short - I ended up with this one:

I used Kim's textures "unexpected" (now, how apt is that...) and "Sybil" on the photo.

Actually, I'm not even sure if it meets the criteria for "dreamlike", but I'll link it up anyway. At least I tried, and isn't that what's most important?

Have a wonderful, dreamlike week everyone!

TV and Textures

I guess I'm the last person on earth who hasn't watched even one episode of Downton Abbey. Can you imagine...!

I've seen it mentioned here and there, but didn't pay much attention. Then I read about it more often and now it seems to be all over the place. Kim even created two beautiful sets of textures dedicated to the TV show - the Downton collections.

For today's Texture Tuesday, Kim asked us to use at least one texture of her Downton Collection - I used two layers of "Sybil" on this photo:

The set is really marvelous and I simply love it. The Downton II Collection is equally fantastic - I used two layers of "Violet" and one layer of "Anna"on this photo:

You'll find more photos processed with the Downton II Collection here.

Considering the beauty of these textures, I guess I have some TV work to do - as I hear, there are 3 seasons to catch up on. 

Have a wonderful week everyone!

Sending Some Love

No, I haven't been hibernating, although these past grey, cold, wet days - or rather weeks - would have invited to do just that, stay in bed or on the sofa cuddled in a cosy blanket sipping hot tea...

I guess, I just got lost somewhere between my job, a very nasty flu, back pain and endless piles of laundry and paper and lists of to-do's. This resulted in my being offline most of the time. I did try to stay updated with all your wonderful blogs and photos in Flickr while commuting to work, however failed more often than not due to connection problems on the trains.

Today, the theme for Texture Tuesday over at Kim's Café is "Love" - what a great opportunity to jump back here again, sending some love, thanking you for bearing with me. That is, if anyone is still reading my blog (insert wink and smile)...
