While still in the garden shop, some colors caught my eye and I ended up getting some "pre-school" sized props. I picked up a rake, hoe and shovel with matching gardening gloves.

With the weather being extra nice today (low 80's) I spent most of it outside. Even though the ground is still too wet to start construction, I tried to remove some of the sod from the construction sight but the Bobcat started sinking into the mud, so on to plan B - get on the mower. I did get the 4 acre front yard mowed in the areas that do not have standing water, now the backyard needs done. While working out back, I noticed on of my cats about 12 feet in the air sitting in a tree.
Upon closer inspection, we discovered that Prince (the cat) was actually duplicating a photo I created last fall for one of my Daily Challenges. Check out the first picture, the challenge was "Incongruent" so I digitally placed a cat in a bird's nest.

Last week I received the new strobes that I had ordered and then had to learn to use them since I had never tried strobes. Here is my daughter with her husband and all of the girls for their first official family portraits. The girls are Ashley (13), Destiny (8) and Allyssa (4 wks). Obviously all Steelers fans as you can tell by the second picture.
My son and his fiancee, Becky, and all of their kids (5 total) were also here (but did not want their pictures taken) so I really couldn't spend a long time shooting. We also had a couple of birthdays to celebrate (Bailey, 13 on the 20th and Krystan, 18 on the 16th). We had a house full (6 adults and 8 kids) but I think everyone enjoyed the visit. At least the weather was about 60° and sunny.
I know the lighting is not perfect in these but I don't think it turned out too bad. C&C welcome as always.

Then the ground would dry out and we could get our project started. Saturday we bought the paint for the studio and I went with Option 6. Like my husband said, if it doesn't turn out like we hope, we can always repaint.
Since it rained all day Sunday, I brought out my old buddy 'Woody' to keep me company and be the victim of my imagination. I also bought another one of those wooden puzzles - the motorcycle - so Woody could go riding. I found out the 9" manikin fits perfect on both the motorcycle and the horse.
I'll sure be glad when we can get outside and work so I can quite torturing everyone with the manikin pictures and switch to construction pictures.

Now I would like your input, which wall color would you pick to go with the desk and accessories? I have narrowed it down to basically 2 colors in 3 shades each. Please help me choose.
