I've spent the morning emptying the rest of the pantry (the floor was already emptied when we installed the new floor tiles) and then putting it all back in. I tried to organize it a little better by putting the most commonly used things at eye level. I also wanted to emphasize the canned goods that either we have canned or someone has given us. I want more home-canned goods in there. In fact, I would like it to be ALL home-canned goods one day!
It's mostly jellies: guava, blackberry, strawberry, apple and peach; some apple butter, pickle relish (both dill and sweet), tomatoes and some home made soup.
I want to keep the pantry simple... simple, wholesome foods. I have a few items still in there that needs to be eaten up but I won't be replacing them once they're gone. Our goal is to eat simple, home-grown, wholesome food. It's better for our health and it's a lot easier on the wallet!
My other project for the day is to photograph a few items that I want to list on eBay or craigslist. I am simplifying my craft area and keeping only the items that I really enjoy. Since I like making things with my hands I have accumulated WAY too much 'stuff' over the years for all the different craft projects! So, I've narrowed down my craftiness to those that I enjoy and will have a dual purpose, i.e., crocheting, cross-stitching and sewing. The rest has to go; either sold online or donated to the local thrift store. I feel overwhelmed every time I walk into our office/craft room. I don't like feeling overwhelmed.
I've always been a landscape/outdoor photographer so this will be a challenge shooting the items for sale indoors and making them appealing.
This was taken on Auto setting with flash on. I would like the whole picture to be in focus and not just part of it. Any tips from you photographers out there in Bloggerville? I'd love any and all suggestions!
I hope you are having a fabulous weekend!
Till next time,
