Vintage Hardware

 

vintage doorknob with pdpa ancient treasures

It is time for Photo Friday and our host Bonnie at Pixel Dust Photo Art suggested that we make a photo including hardware.  I decided upon this one with the colourful doorknob on a vintage cabinet that a friend of mine gave me several years ago.  When I saw the colours I thought this is the one.   I added a texture called Ancient treasures of Bonnie’s  over the top to give it a further vintage feel.

Is it cold where you live? We are in the deep freeze here with temperatures of  minus 17 celcius.   We could use some snow though to cover the plants up.

Great perspective and colors - it just speaks to vintage. We are having rain and cool temperatures in the Pacific Northwest - our typical winter. I'm so glad we don't have the very cold temperatures and snow.

Simply beautiful... A very successful blending of texture and photo; subtly powerful. I love it!

It's cold in my corner of Sweden, too - about the same as at your place - but at least we do have some snow! :)
Awesome job, the light is fabulous. Freezing here, brrrr. Jen

When I saw the "small" link in image I was very very curious...seashells? Your full image is wonderful. What a treasure this cabinet is, and the HARDWARE is wonderful. You chose the right texture for this one.

I live in southern United States and it is cold, but not like where you are. We really don't get snow...but I would never go OUT at your temperatures, snow or not. So enjoy the beauty for me. smiles: sharon

Brrrrr....way to cold for me. It's 65 here in So. Calif.
Beautiful drawer knob. I like the variation of colors in it.

Love the composition and processing on this, and I also love these old doors with their interesting hardware. Sounds like you are really having some chilly weather! 70 degrees F here today.

What a gorgeous piece of photo art, Valerie. The light and the richness of the colours just commandeer the viewer's attention. You could use this one for next week's theme, too!!!

Very beautiful image Valerie. I love it! It's -21 here so far this evening. It's been SO cold with the windchill too but thankfully we have snow covering our plants. Hugs, Pamela

Wonderful piece. Love the subject material and the vintage feel you gave it. - Also like the new blog header.
Here it was "icy" out this morning and then warmed up to a nice 43 degrees.

Great shot! I love vintage pieces and this photo show it off beautifully.

We're getting some snow today, but not much 3-5cm. We need a good old fashioned snowstorm.

Great light in this photo, and perfect editing! I really, really like it!
It's 4 degrees-F here in Boston this morning.

There is nothing finer than the patina of an old brass door knob.

Wonderful lights. The temperatur here is -17 gr.celcius too. Ha de gott i helgen
Linda/patchwork said…
I love this. I'm always inspired by the subjects used here. Great light and shadow in this.

Don't want to make you feel bad, but we're 73F, right now in Central Texas. Not sure what that is celcius....but, lots warmer.

Stay warm. Have a great weekend.

We both chose doorknobs - great minds! I like your copyright signature too!
Karen said…
Love the patina on the doorknob, and the photo is stunning. Yes, it's cold here too, but with little mini thaws thrown in to deplete the snow base and then right back into the freezer again. I wish we had more cover. Maybe later on this week. Hope you stay warm!

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
