~ Photo Feature Friday @ A ROSY NOTE ~ PiNk

Hello friends
My sweet friend Tricia is having her 3rd Photo Feature Friday
The theme this week is PiNk
So I decided to take some photo of the pink flowers I have left over from Easter

The photos were taken in my kitchen nook where we love to sit and have coffee and talk about our day

It is  a cozy space that I immediately fell in love with when we bought our house

My friends and I love to visit in here and browse thru our favorite decorating magazines

Maybe someday I will have you over for coffee ;)
 ~ Have a beautiful day ~

I don't have a very fancy camera,just a basic point and shoot,so I really love using Picnik to enhance my photos
Hopefully one day I will get a better camera,but until then I do what I can with what I have ;)

I used to edit my photos
1. I lightened the exposure
2. Used HDR-ish
3. Used Matte
4. Used the 1960's feature and adjusted the shade

I love using Picnik and it is free unless you want to upgrade

I am linking this post to
A Rosy Note

Your photos are beautiful! I'd love to come for coffee, Rachel! Maybe someday....if I get up your way. Your cozy nook is lovely and the perfect spot to sit and relax. Is that a ruffled throw on your chair?

Hello! I am visiting from Photo Feature Friday. What beautiful photos and a beautiful sitting area! I also used Picnik on my photo...I just love the way you used the effects.

Your photos always look great Rachel. Picnik's so camera is a point-n-click too and I love playing with their editing tools.

You have such a beautiful space to sit and relax. Thanks for sharing.

I love using Picnik too! Like you I use a point and click camera also. It needs to be replaced soon, but I'm not sure if I'm ready for a "big girl camera" yet! LOL

I think your photos have a unique look I associate with your blog and that is a good thing. I make do with a so so camera to and use Picnik premium editing. I think this teaches you to make the most of what you have got. Have a lovely weekend♥

Love your nook!
...and your photos are dreamy!

Pam Kessler said...

Very pretty photos. And your sitting area is gorgeous. The flower bottle is very pretty and dainty.

Sue said...

Hi Rachel- Your photos look lovely, using all those features from Picnik. I do like that site- so much so, that I even bought the extra features pkg. Wanted to say that your new table is so, so cute! The hubs did a wonderful job of fashioning it from the old fencing. Sheesh- our old fence is tumbling down back by the creek- maybe I need to think of re-purposing it somehow!
hugs, Sue

Unknown said...

I always love every single photo you take, girl! Your home is so cozy. I really love your new header, too.
Those bistro chairs are still my favorite!

Wow...beautiful photos!
ps...i'm having a little give-away on my blog! Stop on over if you have a minute:)

Lara said...

Your kitchen nook is so darling! I could easily sit there with a coffee & mags. :) I use Picnik also. Upgrading it was one of the best purchases I've made this year. My goal is to get the lastest version of PS Elements this year, but for now Picnik rocks & gets the look (well sorta) I want! Hope your weekend is treating you great my friend!!
:) Lara
