At the End of the Day

It happened to me again...
while trying to set up a shot of this wood fleur de lis for a post...
I see one of my shabby white boxes
and a few tintypes stacked together,
out of the corner of my eye.
I just knew some of the tintypes would fit inside the box sections, like a frame.
Although some did not fit, a photo opportunity was there.
It's the way my life is,
heading one direction one minute
and a completely other direction 
the next second.
So much for my planned shots.
It's all good though.
I think I'll keep my tintype shabby box.
At the end of the day, I'm truly happy.

Enjoy the rest of this week 
and I will see you all on Friday!


  1. Rhonda,
    Isn't it wonderful how many of our unexpected "revelations" become the things we love best? I find that in my own creations. What I have in my mind, ends up not exactly what I wanted...but who knew until I found what I wanted that I'd want it....confused yet? LOL
    Hearts to love, love the boxes and the pillow is Gorgeous! I would still like to see what you DID have in mind! Maybe another time...

  2. Det lyder som om din kreative åre løber frit og ikke lader sig sætte i bås, og sådan har jeg det også, det er vist det vi har det bedst med. knus morkaren.

  3. Hello Rhonda. Great stuff! I am new to your blog and have enjoyed reading all of your old posts, not to mention looking at all of your beautiful artwork. Thank you for the inspiration! Sue

  4. Old photos are the BEST!
    I like your post...so Vintagey!!!

  5. I think you should keep the box, too.
    The tintypes are great.
    Thanks for sharing.

  6. Oh Rhonda dear, wonderful photoes again, a happy look from the corner of your eye! Also love the one with your gorgeous chair and all your supplies and lovely pieces on shelves!
    Isen`t it wonderful to be able to change direction, and not being alwayes kept on the straight road!!

  7. Love it all!!

    and so so get the heading one direction ending up another.
    I call it 'flitting'


  8. Oh Rhonda
    you knew how much I would love your wooden fleur de lis... c'est beau!!!
    And the box is wonderful too - great prop for photographing your lovely creations!

  9. You do have an eye for vignettes,dear Rhonda.Everything is gorgeous and the box is perfect.
    Have a great weekend.

  10. beautiful tintypes Rhonda! Never heard of them before, but I love them. And they match the box perfectly! Plus I love your way of photographing. Hugs and happy weekend, Wendy

  11. If I were you I'd keep the box. I love how wonderful surprises spring forth when we're actually supposed to be focusing on something completely different! Tintypes are one of my collecting vices :)

  12. Such a Happy Accident!!!
    and Beautiful too.
    hugs Lynn


I hope you found some inspiration today.
