My addition to this week’s Tablescape Thursday is a wee bit different than usual .. These are a few tablescapes that never made it to the Tablescape Hall of Fame .. They just weren’t up to par for one reason or another.. so they didn’t get shared. Also there are a few photos of previous ones that did make it with the “not so perfect” photos that show just how hard it is to get those perfect shots.
This is my current table .. It is beautiful but because my camera died a few weeks back I had to use my iphone to take pictures .. none of the photos turned out great and on top of all that I forgot to remove the stickers off of my Bordello plates .. eek!
So off to the deleted bin of shame they went..
Another setting that never made it was my Fourth of July table.. I forgot to add flatware before taking all the photos .. LOL
This is a tablescape I did last summer .. It was to be a part of a huge multi blog party post .. Tablescape .. Thrift Store Finds and a post for Foodie Friday .. It had it all .. Fresh homemade peach ice cream .. Both Raspberry and Chocolate covered Almonds .. Fresh Georgia Peaches .. and Almond Tea.
A perfect setting to show off the new blue teapot I had just won from another blog party…
I was so exited to do this one .. I worked really fast to take photo after photo .. because here in the hot Georgia heat that ice cream and all that chocolate wasn’t gonna last long at all.
Yum .. The heat had given the chocolate covered almonds a lil shine..
Feeling pretty proud of myself for beating the heat before it melted all my goodies .. and feeling confident that I had gotten some really great photos I cleaned up everything .. put it all away .. and went inside to download all my photos.
It is here my friends that the high I was on suddenly came crashing down. I noticed this tiny black speck on my computer screen.. So I tried wiping it off only to realize it wasn’t on the screen .. it was on the photo .. one right after the other.
There ya go .. right there on each photo was a stinking GNAT .. enjoying the heck out of that Butter Cookie. Ok not a problem right .. he’s small an hopefully nobody will notice him unless they zoom in right? .. did you see him until I pointed him out? Well I wasn’t so lucky on the next few photos.. Mr Gnat went away only in time for Mr. Fly to come along for his share of the Butter Cookie.
Mr. Fly decided that he not only wanted Butter Cookies .. he wanted a lil Ice Cream too.
Oh lookie here .. It was all so good that he brought along a date.
Although I haven’t participated in Tablescape Thursday in quite awhile .. I do stop by an visit all that I can each week. I admire everyone’s dedication .. and appreciate those that share with us all their hard work and beautiful tables. I know how much time and how hard it is to get all those great tables put together and get just the right photos of them.. Thank You for allowing us that pleasure.
