Shadows and Spells in Lavender and Red

Thanks for visiting my shadow-play!
I love sunlit textures...shadows..and shapes..
and I love to interact with them..child at heart!

This Old Red Chair is from my childhood home,
my father upholstered it when we were just kids.
It is wobbly and old but still special to me ..
even in bright velveteen has charm and spirit.

Heart of a Wizardess

Also a Warm Thank You goes out to Marfi,
who recently sent me a beautiful crystal in the mail!
I'll be sure to use in a photo-shoot sometime soon.. Thanks Marfi !
and also playing  along with her Haunted Humpday Meme

There are more Thank-yous I will share soon
for other bloggers that I need to Thank!
Hugs, Victoria

Wishing you a Beautiful October

Victoria, I love the way light and shadows play with each other, too, and you captured that so beautifully. The shadow of the hand is so poignant. And the other photos are beautiful and magical too, as always! I hope you have a wonderful October also.

Hello Victoria, your shadow spell weaving is magical! The images share the texture you love in the sun so well. The chair your father upholstered is such a treasure!
The shadow hand seems to be reaching deep within the chair.
Oooh your sepia images are wonderful!
