Since today was Sunday, Don and I decided to call it "Funday" and spent the afternoon just having fun.  We drove west, to the Fox River in Geneva and found a lovely park with a Japanese garden.  Here are some of the pictures we took.  Don took this one of me, and I like it!
 The next two I did some Photoshop experimenting a la Kim Klassen and her latest Beyond Layers assignment.  It gives the flowers a toned down, vintage feel.  I usually love pop and contrast, but these were fun to try.

 I think this gate one is my favorite.  It was a gorgeous day to be out!
 I liked this pagoda (?) and the way the water reflected the brightness of it.

Afterwards we stopped for root beer floats at A&W (in the frosty mugs - yum!) and then finished the day off with some deep dish pizza.

So how was your week-end?  Did you get to do anything FUN?


  1. I really like the "vintage" feel on those flower pictures. Wish I had your expertise in PhotoShop! I had some fun this weekend, too. Painted trees. (See my Facebook cover. I used a reflective silver paint for the background. It has an interesting effect on the painting that didn't show through on the photo. Oh! And I found an amazing bargain at a furniture clearance sale. (I blogged about it.) Can't wait to show you the REAL THING ... in just under 3 weeks!!!

  2. ahhhh, love it! I'm glad you got to get out and do something creative on a Sunday. I'm learning that if you take the time to really enjoy your Sunday and take that time to do the things you want it sets the mood for the rest of the week in a really good way.


  3. It really WAS a FUNday!
    Looking forward to the NEXT one - with YOU!
