Reality Shot Thursday.......


The delightful Claudia at Mockingbird Hill Cottage has started a meme which grabbed my attention.  

On Thursdays you can forget about cleaning house, straightening up, dusting and polishing, organizing 'stuff', pulling weeds, mowing lawns, fixing things............just to shoot a photo for your blog of something perfectly IMPERFECT around your house or garden.  

Claudia wants us to be brave and take a photo of something messy, broken, disorganized, even downright ugly. In other words, she wants us to show the REAL, the IMPERFECT in our homes, not just the pretty parts.


So here to help kick off this fun meme, is my current untidy, waiting to be fixed, new but very old chandelier.  It has been in the middle of the living room for well over a week now ~ and I will stick back the bits which broke off in the trunk of my car while bringing it home, just give me a little more time. To me this isn't too ugly, after all if one has a pile of junk antique beauty awaiting a little fix to make it operable and usable, enjoy looking at it no matter what.  

In coming weeks I may be a little braver when it comes to showing you reality around the cottage...........the really messy bits are waiting in the wings!

Do stop over to visit Claudia and join in on Thursdays - after all you don't even have to pick up or dust!!

  2. Thanks so much for joining in, Mary! Your Reality Shot is perfect. I bet a lot of us have something hanging around that we're going to fix but in the meantime it's in the middle of the room.

    I can tell this one is going to be gorgeous in the end.

  3. This sounds like the perfect topic for me. My house is in a remodeling mess.

    Great shot, Mary.

  4. I would say this is a bit tame as I look at my filthy kitchen floor this morning. I will look forward to seeing what you do with this beauty.

  5. My really messy but would be the dishes waiting on the draining board to be stacked in the dishwasher - sometimes they wait an awful long time.

  6. Mary, I always seem to have a project sitting somewhere taking up space, waiting for me to tackle it! This will be a lovely chandy when you are finished working your magic on it. Ann
