Face-down Tuesday - 2.15.11

Face-down Tuesday - 2.15.11

I'm working from home today so I had to make due with my house as a face-down location. Truth be told, there are very(VERY!) few spots in my house that are uncluttered enough to be camera ready. And you wouldn't believe what I went through just to get this shot. Don't laugh. It's a sickness. Anyhoo, I am very happy with the end result. I look dead (or maybe just exhausted from cleaning) and overall I think the photo looks very mysterious. Or maybe just odd.

I know the whole face-down thing is lost on some of you, so I thank you for indulging me. I can't really explain why I find it so amusing. I just do. :)

Hi Nancy
Rub A Dub Dub, I linked you would you be so kind!! Also I nominated you for a Stylish Blog Award, I tried to notify you by a ping back, but maybe I did it wrong. (Go to my blog for the award.) It was several days ago. I love your work; I put several of your earrings on my Christmas list. My husband bought me the Carousel in Emerald Green on Hoops. And I love them!!

I find the face down quite entertaining. This is particularly nice with Marie up there on the mantel with her head about to fly off. I'm going with mysteriously dead.

Stunning photo. What is that in the bottom right hand corner of the photo?

Wow what an awesome photo, it reminds me of a mystery puzzle. I can't stop looking for clues in the background (and puns intended here) I am just "dying" over that "breath taking" painting over your fire place. Can you tell me more about it, it is very inspiring and very very dreamy. swopemelmel@aol.com

P.s. I luv face down Tuesday, it's a blast. I can't believe Lorelei did it in Spain, so cool. Mel

This is absolutely my favorite face down. The background is amazing. Love the fireplace and the painting above it. Please post a picture of the painting and tell us more about it.
