Happy Wednesday

Happy Wednesday~~

I hope your  week is going well. Thought I would share this pic with you. One of my favorites that I have taken. I have altered it with Picnik. 
This is the picture in its regular format. I got this cute little vase from my husband's great grandma (Little Nonnie) It is perfect for fresh cut flowers.
This one has the "Matte Finish" Love the soft edges...
This one is the "Gritty Finish". At first I wasn't sure I liked this, but now I LOVE it. I may make a print of it. 

What do you think???

Enjoy the rest of your week


  1. I love both of those photos.Picmonkey is so much fun.

  2. All the formats are wonderful and I love the different effects you can get with these programs.
    However, I love the original photo the best.
    But...that's just me...cause you asked!
    Hope you're having a great week! :)

  3. I like all the versions of your photo. What a cute little vase...I love the linens too :)

  4. I think I like the last one-very vintage-looking. I'd say PRINT!

  5. I love all your photos on the side bar! Your home is beautiful! Will you rent it out for a vacation? I think I could get some R&R there!

  6. LOVELY PICS:) I really like your blog and will happily follow.

  9. I love editing my photos in new and creative ways. I love all your versions, but I think the middle is my favorite. Thanks for sharing! ~Angie

  10. hmmmm, I think I like them both. Maybe the gritty on just a little more. LOL

  11. Amazing touch. I love them both. Thanks for sharin. Cheers SpecialK XoXo

  12. Cheryl,
    The images are lovely. Your original is brilliant!
    Today is Picnik's last day. I bit the bullet and fled to PicMonkey last week. The site does not have the collage feature yet, but the effects are fun. I'm hooked on the photo corners!
    It's always lovely when you visit!

  13. I love the gritty finish one! You are talented with that camera.


  14. They're all beautiful...and I do think it would make for a lovely print.

  15. What a pretty little vase! I love the linens in the background as well! You always know how to put things together so well!

  16. Looks like you had fun trying different photo finishes using Picnik. Your pitcher with the roses is so pretty in each photo. I guess I need to get with the program and try this out.
    Thanks for your continued encouragement.

  17. Really pretty Cheryl! Those roses are gorgeous. I love the gritty too :) have a great weekend!

  18. All the pics are great! I love your new header too!

  19. They're beautiful shots. The roses are lovely I like the gritty one so so much! Has a vintage feel to it.

  20. Hello dear friend!!! Love your beautiful vase, blooms and linens!!! I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far!!! I'm sick...yet again...blah! Every 3 weeks I seem to get ill?!?!? Oh well, at least it's warming up and I get to practice my "gardening skills" (I'm still learning). By the way, I'm going to be asking you some advice on gardening (if that's ok), since I've seen your garden in pics - and it looks amazing! I need some insight from someone with almost the same climate as mine (yay for us So. Cali gals!). :) Wishing you a fab Sunday!!!


  21. Love that gritty finish for sure. It is so much fun to try different effects with your photos. Thanks for becoming a new follower over at my blog too!

  22. Each one more beautiful! Love your arrangement~

  23. So pretty, Cheryl! I think one of best parts of blogging is the photo editing! lol! :)
