Red pears and white ironstone…

013 copy

(photo for Texture Tuesday challenge “2”

I used two pears with one pear cut in two and used two textures,

Aurora and Just Cause both at softlight mode, 80% opacity)

Coming home from our conference in California we stopped at the Harry and David outlet in Medford, Oregon.

I bought these beautiful red pears and some of my favorite honeycrisp apples.

I also bought some old-fashioned Walnettos candies.

Once in a while my daddy would bring them home to us in his lunch box for a special treat.

Harry and David is the only place I’ve seen them, though they are available other places online.

Anyone else remember Walnettos?


Anyway, back to the red pears.

They were so pretty I did a little photography still life with them and some fall leaves.


The pears are nested in a white Meakin English Ironstone bowl found at Goodwill.

Both of my most frequented grocery stores have a Goodwill and a Salvation Army right next to them.

It’s all too easy to pop over there for a quick peek to see if there are any treasures in housewares

when I go to the grocery store!

  1. Simple pleasures really ARE the best!

  2. Beautiful red pears....beautifully "paired" with the ironstone and that red and white towel!

  3. Oh, yes, I remember Walnettos! I love the red pears - my mouth thinks it can taste them! How I wish I lived where my grocery shopping took me near the Goodwill. Maybe I should change where I shop!

  4. Thank you - I absolutely love your Blog. The processing and images are beautiful. kareninkenai

  5. I love the texture on the pear skin. :)

  6. Beautiful still life photos! I love the simple beauty.

  7. These pears are so perfect! How did you keep them long enough to photograph them?

  8. Really stunningly beautiful. I love that you left the water droplets!!!

  9. This really appeals to me for some reason. I don't know if it's the color combination or the simplicity of it.

  10. Oh wow, looks like I could reach out, grab one and eat it--they are so beautiful and I look them peared (pun intended) with the autumn leaves--

  11. Very pretty! I love the towels :)
