I want to apologize for not getting around to visit all the blogs I usually do. This really bothers me and after a couple of days of it, I begin to feel guilty. I grew up Catholic, so feeling guilty is something I’m used to. (No offense).
I’ve had a stressful week and am going to need another vacation after all this. Luckily, I have a plan.
Tonight, just to chill out some, I played with some photos I’d taken at last weekend’s Blog Fest held at the home of Chesapeake Bay Woman in Mathews, VA. I used some new actions from Florabella called Florabella’s Luxe Photoshop Actions.
And I love them. Here, I’ll show you some of the photos on which I’ve used them.
I think I’ll call this one Bent Tip.
Taken one morning at a cemetery outside of Mathews along Rt. 14. I love this fence and used Florabella’s Cashmere action on it.
Cashmere here again.
We had a couple of tours while at Blog Fest and two of them were led by Miss Pookie, a lifelong resident of Gwynn’s Island. She took us to the waterfront home where she was born and told us a little of the history of the island and its residents.
This little cat was sitting on the woodpile when we arrived and we didn’t even scare it. I used Florabella’s Heiress action.
Miss Pookie also took us to an old building that used to be a church. Florabella’s Pandora action, as well as [this trick].
CBW’s mom, Maryann, peeking in the window. Florabella’s Gypsy action used on this shot.
I love these pink chairs and the aqua color of the porch roof. That’s a boat tied up there on the porch, too. Florabella’s Gypsy action again.
I bought a single hammock stand chair very similar to this one for my husband’s 40th birthday, which we spent in Ocracoke, NC. That was many years ago and whenever I see a chair like this, I think happy thoughts of days long gone. And I smile.
I have packing to do. I am totally serious about that vacation.
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
