Good, Random, Fun: The Play's the Thing

Right now we are all in the midst of Tech Week for our summer play.  Gathering props, rehearsing, painting etc.  Here are some very random shots of what our week has been like.  There were some glorious finds at the local thrift store:  red velvet chairs and settees for $8.00.   I was amazed they were sitting right there in the maze of furniture tumbled together.  So, for now it is all drama.  There will be more varied thoughts on life after this week is over,  but for now:  Theatrical Obsession!!

Theater Faces 

Our first attempt at faux marble.  Quite fun!

A wonderful red velvet was a grand find!!!

Somehow everything looks amazing on a red velvet background!

The $8.00 settee with a lovely parasol!  

 Other wonderfully color-rich props!  Sometimes I think I am in it for the props!  It's like outfitting a gigantic dollhouse!  Fun!


  1. I bet finding and putting together the props is a lot of fun! I think I'm into blogging just so I can take and share pretty photos....I often find myself grabbing my camera and thinking, "I need some photos for my blog posts this week..."

  2. I know what you mean! I am beginning to think in pictures! When you start looking around, you see smaller but very beautiful things..colors, shapes, sizes.....taking photos makes you peer more intensely into life. Beauty is there whether large or small.

  3. Oh goodness, fun and great times, and your first try is I'd say lovely and fabulous, (something my daughter in law is going to do too for her kitchen cupboards) Lovely captures throughout. The umbrella is beautiful.

  4. What great props! Wonderful finds. Have a lovely week.

  5. The faux marble is great!
    Thanks for linking up!

  6. Red is such a rich color - I have it sprinkled through my living room:) And I love the theatrical faces:) Your week should not be boring with all of this around you!
