Random Shots of Pretty

Recently was having fun with my new camera around the house, still learning how it works and how to take the best shots. Let's go for a stroll..... Kitchen bunnies
Bunny on a leaf
Bathroom shelf
Livingroom console table

Fresh flowers on the piecrust table from my floral designer friend;Perfect for a spring bouquet on the kitchen table.
They sure brighten up the livingroom.
Soft blues and creams mixed with seashells in the masterbath. On top of my antique mirror.
A friend gave me the bunny and the bird holder was a yardsale find and I think they mix well together.
Oil painting in the livingroom, along with some blue and white things.
Pears on the mantel. You saw this shot on my new banner.

Silk and dried arrangement. Love these colors in the artichokes and pomegranites.
Dried hydrangeas in a container I decoupaged several years ago on top of kitchen cabinets. I still love these colors.

Hope you are all enjoying a happy week. Kim and I are getting together on Friday for a visit.

Camera fun...just love it! Have fun with Kim- I look forward to hearing all about it. When you have time, be sure to check out my post & photos from that Showhouse Tour I mentioned to you!

I love your random shots of pretty. I think it is so important that we surround ourselves with pretty. After all, we deserve it.

Julie said...

Thank you so much for posting about my contest on your blog. I am thinking that a really computer saavy - artistic teenager would be a great candidate for this contest...and there seem to be so many teachers that have blogs. I just need to get the word I REALLY appreciate the advertising help Rhoda!

I have to ask - are your Pears made out of gourds? I used to grow gourds, paint and sell them at craft shows. Some looked like pears, some like apples - etc.


Reynie said...

You're making me want a new camera!!

Speaking of your banner, have I told you how much I love it! I just love each of those pictures and it's so representative of your blog.

You're doing so good with your camera! I still don't know half of what mine can do - I just don't have the patience to mess with it LOL!

Love all the pretty things in your pictures. The decopauged container is so cute! All the flowers are beautiful - they do brighten a room!

I know you're having a fantastic time and I can't wait to hear what you and Kim are up to!

I love your blog. You have such beautiful pictures.

Mary Ann said...

Oh I so agree with Beverly about pretty. My daughter and I have a question about anything we buy "Is it cute?" It doesn't matter if you need it, can afford it or if you have room for it, nothing matters but is it cute or pretty!

Deb said...

Mary Isabella said...

Rhoda, Enjoy your visit with Kim. Your pictures were lovely. I have an Olympus digital that I received for Christmas and have yet to try it, you have inspired me to open it! What kind of camera are you using?
Enjoy the weekend! Mary

Your Blog is like a breath of fresh air. You are so talented. Please keep the inspirations coming!

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Thank you girls for all the very sweet comments! My very favorite thing to do is vignettes, making things look good around the house.

Mary, my camera is a Canon A570IS and I've really enjoyed it. Not too expensive & has a lot of nice features, so you might want to check it out online and read reviews. It gets confusing trying to pick out a camera, but I had heard so many great things about the Canons that is what I went for & I'm very happy with mine.


Carrie said...

Beautiful vignettes. I enjoyed the tour.

Sharon said...

Scooterblu's Whimsy said...

Rhoda, I enjoyed the tour of all your pretties! I love the rabbit in the bird holder! You have collected the neatest stuff and I enjoy browsing over it! My MIL was visiting one day last week, and I showed her your blog! She absolutely loved it, as do I! You have a wonderful sense of decor!

Hope you're enjoying your sounds like a great one so far!
