I’m A Little Bit Country

January 19, 2012

I really do appreciate soft and frilly..Pink has always been a favorite color. It must have started with seeing the painting of Pinkie at the Huntington Art Gallery when I was in elementary school, but I also liked the color of Blue Boy’s attire as well. I do have the tendency to go the other spectrum and be drawn to the country look. For me old wood has it’s place and the more worn out the better in my eyes.. Then there’s the look of old bottles. They just have that appeal…So in order to get it out of my system I will share a little bit of country with you.

The truth is that I don’t think I’ll ever get country out of my system. It’s here to stay.. We’ll just keep hitting the back roads and I’ll keep taking photo’s of someones lost treasure…

    I find country very comfortable and that’s probably why I’m drawn to it…
    Lovely photos!

    Lovely photos, Roberta. I like the country, rustic things a lot and I have a thing for old jars and bottles too. It’s always interesting to look at old junks and wondering about the life history behind the items.

    I’m glad you’re a little bit country Roberta. We love living the country life and any more couldn’t live any other way. It’s very relaxing knowing that a formal occasion involves wearing a new pair of Carhartts.

    We love the back roads, too–and the uniques yards. You inspire me to get out there with my camera! 🙂

    Me again. And BOTTLES! i am nutty about bottles. For years I collected the ARIZONA TEA bottles–glass ones. Now they are plastic. But I still have a good assortment of the glass originals with many different labels intact..

    I love old cloudy bottles that we find at yard sales, etc. Mary Randolph Carter calls them “sick bottles”. She has the “sick bottle disease” as well!

      I guess we have a serious case of “sick bottle disease”..My husband has a nice collection and I have some tiny bottles. He likes bottles with Owls on them..I think originated in Owl Drug stores. I don’t know that there is a cure for it..Lol!

    Really like the effective use of colour in images 1, 3,& 4. The last shot is very intriguing. It would be interesting to see it in B&W or sepia. Well done compositions !
