DIY - charcuterie board for family dinner! (Scroll through the photos.). It's easy - just buy two 6 foot walnut planks (depending on how wide you want to make it), glue together with wood glue and clamps, sand and rub three times with mineral oil (no staining required and it's food safe). Then cover with charcuterie and your favorite fruits, nuts, cheeses, hummus, olives, crackers and vegetables. Serve with Rose wine from Provence. Voila! πŸ·πŸ—πŸžπŸŒΆπŸ₯’πŸ‰πŸ’

Lavender - Up Close and Personal! #lavender
This Hydrangea came from a north-facing wall in my backyard.  They are happy there and every year they come back with an even more spectacular presence than the year before.  Their blooms never cease.  And their colors are always new and changing.  I love Hydrangeas.  Lots of little flowers within one big flower.  #Hydrangeas
Black and white Dahlia. As beautiful as flowers are because of their color...sometimes they don't need it.  The absence of color can reveal hidden texture, imperfection and curves.
Just visited @fullertonarboretum for the first time in a long time. This is the place where I first became passionate about "bloom photography." It's such a magical place and one of Fullerton's treasures for sure. Many of my fine art pieces were photographed here. Go to www.lauralejuwaan.com and search for Fullerton Arboretum to view some of my favorites. (Zoom in on the bamboo forest photo and see all the carvings. A little visitor history - cool huh?) #bambooforest #bamboo
I printed my "Pair of Pears" on canvas for our kitchen we remodeled in 2015. Now I just need to get it framed. Any framing suggestions? White? Black? Vintage? Sleek? Scroll through the photos to see the old kitchen that we do not miss at all. Also click on the link in my profile to order "Pair of Pears" for your wall. It's available on Lustre, Metal or Canvas.
It's a good day when a dear friend, who knows you love blooms, paints you a beautiful watercolor picture. Thank you Wendy Turney @midgetymom
You made my day! I love your beautiful work! #watercolor #watercolors #blooms #friends #watercolorpainting #yellows #art #artistsofinstagram
I love the look of a photograph printed on #metal. Metal prints are vibrant, cleanable and give the image a 3D quality. You can leave it unframed for a sleek, modern look or frame it for a classic traditional one.  And metal is especially impressive when used for family photos. This print hangs in our family room on a mantle that was custom built to break up the stone around the fireplace (@mikehaluza). To see this print for your walls, visit the link in my profile. @fotoworkspro @fullertonarboretum #fullertonarboretum #paperwhites
Found this fillable glass table lamp at #tjmaxx and filled it with green moss. It sits on our refurbished buffet/sideboard on our backyard porch deck.  See the before and after pictures of the buffet. I used #anniesloanchalkpaint.
What is focus stacking?  Using a tripod and a Macro lense, multiple images are taken with each having a different focal point.  The images are then stacked and auto-blended in Adobe Photoshop for a final sharp image. (#traderjoes has Peonies!)
