Shadow Shot Sunday...shadows of...

 My chipped and gnarly world
dishpans...

 original plaster walls... 

 well used kitchen cupboard...

 my mantra...

 vintage wallpaper at it's finest...

there is beauty all 'round...
if you ain't perfect
and us shadow shooters see it...

As the saying goes about one person's treasure...the shape and quality of each item is what matters. Sanding and paint can be applied again, the well-made items of another day will live on...

The chipped enamel dishpans take me back...oh, I'm not going to tell you how far! Suffice it to say that I have memories...lots of them!

SHADOWY DELIGHT

Shadows above me, shadows below,
Shadows beside me, wherever I go;

Shadows each morning, shadows at night—
Shadows, O shadows, you’re my delight!

Shadows here and shadows there

I love all these old things - what a pity we don't live near each other .... but on the other hand, for the sake of my bank balance, it's probably better that we don't!

I love every single thing in all their weathered charm and antique beauty

Beautiful shadowy worlds! The first photo especially seems riddled with the mystery of old secrets! Fascinating items!

All beautifully weathered and shadowed items!

I like thinking about the people who used these items, especially the family that used the well-worn kitchen cupboard.

Interesting antique pieces you've shown us!

What a treat to see all of your old pieces...and all of the shadows. This is such a clever and appealing post to those of us who are attracted to the things that others do not want. I love all of your shots. A great post this week. genie


Where is my shadow,
I can't find her anywhere,
I'm lonely without her.

If the lighting's right
and I am out in the yard
I bet she’ll be there.

That will make me smile,
My loneliness will then end
I'll be with my friend.

love the shadows today. shadows are not to be found here today. in fact it is now raining. BUT it isn't snow...yet. so we are one day LESS of winter.
the kitchen cupboard is rather nasty... but i love the bottom relic. knowing I would LEAVE it like that and just clean it, i know you are painting it black or white and giving it new life.

Sharon girl you cracked me up this morning : ) Thank YOU !
No it isn't Spring yet !!!!
I love you "well loved" objects with your very creative shadow shots .. there is such atmosphere with them .. especially the wash basin .. that really grabbed my attention for some reason .. the rough texture of the wood behind it.
Maybe in another life , that was mine ? LOL .. we have no snow at the moment and I actually did some last minute garden clean up .. husband worked harder than I did .. good lad ! I pushed some leaves around but secretly dreamed of new projects in the garden for next SPRING : ) LOL
Hope all the chickens and that handsome rooster are well !
