What Was I Doing At 3:23PM?

At 3:23PM, I was taking this picture in my kitchen.

Before that, my breakfast area was just too disappointing.
I look at so many wonderful images almost every minute, it seems, of every day.
Beautifully decorated homes with rooms that could make your jaw drop (you know).

I had to get creative just to feel better...

The staging:
The light was just perfect.
The Forsythia's are in bloom.
An orange so sweet.
Linen cloth for cover.
A simple French napkin.
Antique silver treasures.
Oh, and clock from Target!
Not bad, eh?

I feel better now!
{None of this is very poetic and I am not going to show the before picture.}
{Ruins the whole fantasy for me!}

Now that is one beautifully decorated home with a room that makes my jaw drop!

You captured a lovely image, Jamilyn. The light is amazing and if you hadn't indicated otherwise, I would have thought it came straight out of a magazine. Cross my heart! :0)

Awww, I too thought that was a magazine pic! You're a lot more productive than I am at 3 a.m. than I, a photo of our house would find me channel surfing and eating cold pizza, no doubt! Love it!

Thanks for your sweet comments! I love taking photo's and enjoyed staging this scene in my kitchen. I know a magazine will not be featuring my home anytime soon so....with my blog, I did my own magazine feature! It also was good for my "creative" spirit! It was fun!

Oh I didn't pay attention, 3 p.m., DUH! Of course you're sane enough to be asleep at 3 a.m., lol!

Isn't it amazing what just a little bit of fluffing and styling does for your spirit? I've started using branches a lot because they last so long and just look really pretty. Thanks for always stopping by RHS. I really appreciate your kind words and support. Have a great weekend.
