Wednesday Vignette – snuck up on me!

Can’t believe I almost missed my own meme… Oh well, that’s what too many days off will do to me – I get my days all jumbled up! I could have sworn today was Tuesday!

In haste, I will remedy this faux-pas with a photo that was taken almost exactly one year ago. It is a shot of a spent Fatsia flower, and was taken with one of my favorite gifts ever, and one that keeps on giving – my camera. At the point of this lucky shot,ย I had happily owned it for exactly one week.

Fatsia in bud

Here is to another year of lucky shots! Happy New Year, All! ๐Ÿ™‚

About annamadeit

Born and raised in Sweden, my aesthetics and outlook on life are strongly shaped by a culture rich in history and tradition. I care a great deal about environmental responsibility, and my aesthetic reflects the visually clean, functional practicality and sustainable solutions that are the hallmarks of modern Scandinavia. I was trained as an architect at the University of Cincinnati and as a color specialist at the Scandinavian Colour Institute in Stockholm. I'm obsessed with plants and gardens, and aim to take my skill set a step further by designing gardens as well as interiors. As someone so aptly said: " Architecture is the skin that separates the exterior from the interior". So true - you can't successfully focus on one without incorporating the other. I'm also an avid cook, and I love to ski. In addition, I put time and efforts into trying to rectify things that I feel are wrong in my immediate community. As you will see, The Creative Flux will touch on all these things, and more. For sure, it's all over the map, but then again - so am I! Welcome to my blog!

    The Fatsia flower is very appropriate – it looks like one of the fireworks that’ll soon fill the skies! Here’s my Wednesday Vignette: http://krispgarden.blogspot.com/2015/12/wednesday-vignette-random-year-end.html

    I’ve been spending so much time researching to replace my lost camera that I almost didn’t have anything to show today. Even with my limited budget, there are so many cameras to choose from! I need to hurry up and decide. Not having an actual camera makes blogging a tad difficult. Luckily, this morning was beautiful and my phone managed to capture a decent shot at work. http://practicalplantgeek.blogspot.com/2015/12/sunshine-and-blue-skies-return-to-pnw.html

      Aww… I was hoping you would have found it by now. My family pieced one together for me when I dropped and broke mine at the Portland Garden Blogger’s Fling. My stepdad sent me the lens, and my husband and the kids bought the body. I was pretty much without a camera for half a year, and it sucked. I used my phone during that time, but it was hit and miss with a few good surprises here and there. I hope you find your favorite soon, Evan.

    Happy New Year, Anna! That is one lovely lucky shot. I wasn’t ready to participate this morning either. Time for a little break.
