Day 31

We did it!! One month down, and 11 more to go! How do you all feel? Have many of you done this 365 before? I feel like I made it over the big hill. If I can do this, the rest should be a cinch. Well, at least not so much of a nail biter..
Again, this is mostly for me, but I'm chronicling my tuscany inspired dining area. I realized I'm not as thrilled with this photo as far as from a photographer's point of view because it's not that crisp. It's more that it is of a place in an area I love. This is funny, because we don't drink, but I love the decanters and old vintage bottles I find. Some were given as gifts at a wedding (the dog faces), and they look good with the wine crates I found on craigslist about 5 years ago.

Personally I'm feeling a bit unspired today. I'm hoping I can pick up the pace!
Nice picture!

Carrie said...

I'm jealous!~ I have always wanted beautiful decoration in my home...but my kids destroy everything! LOL
Love the shot!

Kristin said...

Yeah, we did it! I love how your shot celebrates the first milestone and says so much about who you are and what's important to you in this journey. I've had to settle for some ordinary photos this month, but looking back on all of them today, I realize I'm so glad I have every single one of them, and together they represent a little piece of my life as I know it. Keep up the great work and lets see what the next month teaches us.

Love love love this! I'm a HUGE wine buff and have been obsessed with Tuscany for forever. I wish I had this in my dining room!! :)

Were you shooting off a tripod or handholding?

I have no sense of interior design. My house needs help. :)

I did the 365 last year, but my personal count was in the 270's. I'm falling behind this year, too, but I'm still enjoying it and growing, and that's what it is all about for me.

Oh I love it!

This is my third year doing the project. I love seeing how much I've grown over the years. YOU CAN DO IT!
