of our 2012 Project 52*
(*give or take a week here and there for vacations)
It's 2012! Another round of photography projects! This month's set-up includes: 35 mm f/2.0 lens + Opteka fish eye attachment. Our theme for January is "still life."
I love these ones from Ikea. Perfect for creating a unique centerpiece on a coffee table. I placed 3 vanilla scented jars on a dark brown ceramic tray. You can add river rocks around the jars for effect.
My secret for making the candles last and also to control the amount of scent? I cut the wick to about half of the original exposed width. This way I get a nice smaller flame. With three candles burning, the scent can get overwhelming, and this is how we make sure just a light scent fills the air. Sometimes I only burn 1 or 2 candles.
I light one (or all three) candles, plop down on the couch and read a book. It sets the tone for relaxation in an otherwise frazzled life.
Happy weekend everyone!
