Bench as prop.
Make that free bench as prop.
A couple of years ago I was on my way to work
and saw a bench at the curb.
It was trash pick up day and I knew if I did not
rescue it right away it would be gone.
So I slamed on my brakes, hoped out of my truck,
tossed it into the back and went to work.
Later that day I assessed my free bench...
It was a bit flimsy but had great cottage style.
The cat thought so too.
I thought it would make a great prop for photos.
So I experimented with this yoyo quilt on the free bench.
Quilt was cute but the bench was not right.
Same bench, same cat, different angle.
Can't see much of the bench and the cat is a ham.
On the hottest summer day of the year I brought a table outside with
some props for a little outside dining photo shoot.
It's okay but not much of the bench is in the photo.
Same bench, different cat, different angle.
Besides Olive kitty, I love the foxgloves in the background.
This is one of my favorites of my bench prop.
I love the enamel pail of hydrangeas and the wicker demi-johns.
Notice the chippy paint on the bench.
This photo was taken in year 2 of the free bench.
I love this photo the best!
I love the spread, the hydrangeas in the pail and the purple petunias in the background.
I wonder what great photos will come form my free bench this summer?
