blog : the winner is!



These photos gave me fits because I just learned how to adjust the depth of field, but I'm not exactly sure what I'm doing.

Hi Everyone -

Thanks so very much for visiting us and your lovely comments relating to Quaint's birthday. We said there would be one winner in the giveaway, but we lied. There will actually be three. A spin using trusty Random.org says that the winner of the $25+ wish is -


The other winners are two lovely ladies who said they would contribute their winnings to charity -


We can't let those sentiments go unrecognized, so we will make $25 donations to each charity in their names. Congratulations! Thanks again, everyone! Here's to year no. two!

xo, Cindy

Depth of Field - It seems like we are on the same learning curve... ; ) I came across that term a couple of days ago, and had to look it up having no idea about how to do it exactly... Another thing I'd like to experiment with!
Your pictures look great, by the way!
