Hope you’re all having a wonderful week! I must admit that Thanksgiving has totally snuck up on me this year. I’m working on freelance projects for next February and October right now, so I’m really messed up. I’m trying to get through those, so I can get to the good stuff…decorating for Christmas. I am determined to have full-0ut Christmas decorations this year. Lots of fresh greenery and little trees and I’ve been hoarding anything mercury glass. I apologize if you shop the Hobby Lobby in Hanover or Chambersburg, PA. I cleaned out almost all of the their mercury glass ornaments.
I also got a new toy yesterday…well, it’s an expensive toy and it is for work, but anyway…I got an SB-900 Nikon flash, which is known as being the “flagship” flash for Nikon. I was about to cry when I couldn’t even figure out how to make it work wirelessly with my camera after two hours of thumbing through my camera manual and the flash manual. I finally watched a You Tube video that showed me exactly what I needed to do. Why do these manuals have to be so technical? It’s looks more like a math book. I just want to know how to use it to light a good picture. I don’t want to have to pull out a slide rule or abacus every time I want to take a picture! I was trying to figure it out past midnight and this morning my husband said it looked like a lightning storm was going on in the family room. That cracked me up.
I’ve made some progress, but I’m still struggling. If there are any Nikon gurus out there who wouldn’t mind walking me through some things over the phone, I would really appreciate it. Just drop me an e-mail.
I’m a little chatty tonight. On to FFF and my favorites from last week…
**There were some problems with the link party this week, so feel free to link up again if you’re thumb nail isn’t showing up.
Shelley from Slipcovers By Shelley made a beautiful slipcover for this sofa. It’s amazing, but I am so smitten with that coffee table and the pillows and the chandelier with the wonky shade. This shot looks like it’s straight out of a magazine. Just gorgeous.
ELA from ELA’s Smile and her husband stained and hung this “barn door.” I know it’s not technically furniture, but I’ll let it slide. It’s so stunning, I had to feature it.
I love this subway art dresser featured by Anne from notes by anne. I thought of doing a subway art dresser and I just never got around to it. It looks great and, having worked in DC, I appreciate the DC metro stops being represented! (Yes, there is a metro station called Foggy Bottom. Don’t ask me who thought that was a good name.)
Enjoy the party!
1.) Your post has to be about furniture. Please, please, please…just furniture. If you find your link has been deleted, it’s not because I’m mean, it’s because your post was not about furniture. You can share makeovers, awesome finds, favorite pieces, furniture arrangements, or even pieces on your wish list! Built-in furniture like kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities qualify as furniture.
2.) Post a permalink (the link to the post), not the link to your blog.
3.) This party will close Friday at midnight PST and I will choose my favorite(s) and feature their piece(s) on next week’s FFF.
