Santa brought me another camera....the Canon PowerShot sx200 that Laura uses on Blogging from Bolivia. Macro Friday always showcases such beautiful close-ups, beginning with Laura's. My goal is to take similar macro shots, but I'm struggling a bit. It's under 20 degrees F outside, and I'm not a fan of cold weather. Indoors, my house is rather dark for macro.
My subject is a Christmas gift. My 90-year-old mother went through her vintage jewelry pieces---some inherited, some purchased---and put 5 of them in plain green envelopes. Then she numbered the envelopes and had her 3 daughters and 2 daughters-in-law each choose an envelope. My gift is a long double chain with the most fascinating hand closure. The piece that moves on the chain is a 'puffy' leaf of some kind.
