Japanese Salt and Pepper and hints of PicMonkey

Thrifted tinware, a well used wooden box, a metal candlestick and a sweet Made In Japan Dog and Cat salt and pepper are thrifted finds that I used in my vignette today.

Just added this comment to the top of my post because it sounds promising. Sure hope it is a 'true' thing:

I got this comment on my post (address below) yesterday. I had already heard of PicMonkey and looked at their web page and Facebook. I had left my email address on their web page. I did ask them if they were going to include (my most used part of Picnik - collages -). Here is the beginning of an answer.

Hi Joy, My name is Jenn, I'm part of a team of former-Picnikers. We see that you've been an avid user of Picnik and love to hear about your passion for great photos! As you're looking for an alternative to your old favorite I wanted to let you know about -- a new photo editing site built by a couple of the folks who brought you Picnik! It’ll be familiar, fun, and totally user-friendly. And, you'll be happy to hear that a collage feature is on our docket. Sign up on our site and we’ll keep you updated on a launch date. Also, feel free to send me your feedback, feature requests, and, of course, any questions you have! Hope to see more of your photo creations soon!

And back to today's post:

Another textures post. I originally thought it was about metal and when I edited the pictures it turned in to a post about a one piece Japanese salt and pepper dog and cat. Sort of ugly/cute little faces. My posts this week seem to be more about creating vignettes than anything else. Just turned out that way. In an earlier time of life I was a painter/graphics artist and the texture posts are bringing back some good memories.

  1. How unique, Joy!
    You have a knack for collecting the unusual.

  2. I did think you had an artists eye. I'll be keeping an eye on PicMonkey. Thanks for the heads up! ~ Maureen

  3. Great photos. Thanks for the info on PicMonkey. Have a good day.

  4. The salt/pepper shaker is very cool!

  5. I've never seen a one-piece salt and pepper shaker like that. Great find!


Thanks for visiting. I read and appreciate all your comments. Joy
