Have you seen the Collecting Nature Flickr group that Jan from Poppytalk set up this northern summer. It combines my favourite things - collections, nature, art, textiles, things! And some of my favourite artists have contributed to it like knittalatte, otchipotchi and sue h.
Jan has recently posted this collection of images on Poppytalk from the group, including my little mushroom from here. Check out the Poppytalk blog for the other credits.
It reminded me of this photo that I took back in March and never got round to posting, showing some of the blue and white pieces in my pottery shard collection. I'm going to go and add it to the group now. I've found two more beautiful blue and white pieces in the last fortnight too, hooray, I do love them and its nice to see I'm not the only one, lots of kindred spirits in the group. For more inspiration you must check out the Collection a Day blog. Then go and add your own photo to the Poppytalk group :-)
This photo was taken in strong but indirect sunlight without a flash, the pieces are sitting on a piece of cardboard but you could use office paper. I stood on a chair to make sure I was directly overhead and tried to hold still for good focus. Easy!
Oh and many thanks to all for the wonderful feedback on the website and for the testing you all did!
