Mother's Day Sweets

The Composer gave me a real live corsage! Such vintage glamour . . .


And copper roses, which made for a very happy breakfast.


Giles gave me a photography lesson, where I learned a little about fill light. To some extent, photography hurts my brain to think about, but I did take this picture:


Before Giles took the camera back where it belongs, and made a new picture of me


which I like!

I like it too! You are both beautiful -- and talented.
I can identify with the brain pain and photography. I am married to a pro photog and he gave me a digital camera for Christmas three years ago. I have taken three pictures. I am totally intimadated. I know I can't please him ... or me. I look forward to lurking at your blog everyday. It seems so funny when you talk about vintage patterns from the 50"s - my teen years! Oh how I wish I had kept those 35-cent patterns! Not that they would fit now. But you are so lithe and fit. You do good.

Oooh...The picture of Giles shows where he got his "eye" I think, even if big bad black (as my DH jokingly calls my camera) scares you. *giggle* What a beautiful momma, and a beautiful mother's day!

I love the photos and I agree with all the other posters: You are very pretty!

I was going to comment yesterday on your new photo--good job, Giles!

I love your corsage and roses, too! Hope your Mother's Day was just as beautiful.

When I saw this new photo of you I immediately thought of Daisy! Wonder if you get the "she resembles you" comment. Good job on that photo of Giles!

Lovely new picture!! And I can't believe you got a real corsage... that is too sweet!!! Belated congratulations on Giles' accomplishments :)

Maria said...

What a beautiful mother's day you've had! That corsage is just lovely as is the pink polka dot dress (?) you're wearing - may I ask if you've made it yourself?

I found your blog via S&S message forum a long time ago and have been a faithful reader ever since. I don't recall ever commenting, though... I truly enjoy the happy, peaceful atmosphere of Giles' pictures and your writing. It's a pleasure to come here every time.

Oh, and the new photo is very beautiful!

Lisa said...

What a natural beauty you are Anna. So glad you had such a great mothers day.:)
I also wanted to say that I really love your views on homeschooling. I have only done it for three years now and I can totally see how you came up with your philosphy on it the longer I do it. I've learned that kids learn when they are ready to learn.
Take care Anna,
Salina
