Well, today I am taking you to a messy, cluttered place. My home. Or should I say a blogger’s home because it never looked like this in my pre-blogging days. Horrors!! What did I get myself into? How does my family put up with me? Join me as well take a look behind the scenes peek at the boondocks blog.
I am joined in this wacky adventure by some friends who are also super brave and will show you their ”Behind the Scenes” reality. So don’t go anywhere, you’ll be able to see my blogging friends posts on the bottom of this post.
Peek #1 – The Tri-Colored Coffee Table
And those are my daughter’s knees on the bottom left trying to stay out of the photo.
And let’s not overlook the paint brush on the table. At least I had it in a plastic container.
Peek #2 – The Dictionary Stand
Light! It’s all about the lighting. Outdoors means natural light, even if it’s a cloudy day in January no less!
Peek #3 – The Christmas Decor on the Wall Unit
That glass block window behind Santa has been a problem for years. I had originally added a fabric scraps curtain to block some of the light out. Of course it did nothing for this picture. I had to find some other way to save the pictures.
The glare from that window is constant. I don’t really want to add a heavy duty curtain since it is nice to have that bit of light but it really is not photo friendly!
Peek #4 – The Mirror with Angels
But you see that the shot stops there. What is further down?
Peek #5 – The Fabric Headboard
Everything is perfect down to the last detail. The fabric, the right chair, the added details on top of the dresser. But there are two things you don’t see.
One, there is no mattress in the bed frame. It is an illusion. “wink”
Peek #6 – The Balcony Photography Studio
The stool is used to put all my stuff while I’m setting up.
Oh and the icing on the cake! Many times I go out there in my pajamas. Because we all know a blogger’s uniform is pajama wear! I hope the neighbors have not been spooked.
Peek #7 – The Painting Area
Oh I’m planning to get to those copper dishes…one day! But for now they stay there as a reminder. And the chair is done!
Peek #8 – Where Have All the Books Gone?
My son really does love his books! He placed all of his non-fiction books here.
Sometimes we show you the pretty because, really, who wants to see all the rest? So trust us when you see a pretty! The ugly ought to stay hidden!
