Impulse Purchase Goes Wild


This photo was taken on November 12, 2019 at 6:12 PM.

The location was in the kitchen sink in my home relocation in Maryland.

The "Take It!" came as I have been contemplating how to even further enhance the serving of cup cakes as part of the refreshment of choice when I start to give small classes here at my home when I get further along with the installation of show off shelving throughout this little old house.  

The shallow bowls were purchased yesterday at my favorite hardware store which carries all sorts of goodies.  The bowls were so striking that they almost jumped off the shelf at me - lol.   I have gone a step further and placed one of the bowls on a small lazysusan to give the underlier even that much more emphasis to the cup cakes I will serve at sessions. The cup cakes will come from a - line out the door - bakery in Georgetown.  The beverages which will be offered will be Tea or Coffee.  I will be shopping for just the right small knife to go along with this bit of highlighting - even though using a knife with a cupcake may be absolutely forbidden - lol.

For the photographing of this new bowl - I chose the setting of my stainless steel kitchen sink.  I have a self imposed rule to always keep the sink clear of dishes as wash them right away after a meal and always wipe the cleaned up sink with a paper towel to leave it as dry and shiny as possible.   The muted reflections from the overhead light and the curves in the sink have made for what I think is an unusual staging.  I can hardly wait to do the whole photo shoot over again when I have some real cup cakes to include - just to see if the design in the bowl adds the emphasis I imagine it will.

Thank you for taking the time to share in the fun of the constant quest to find a way to add spin to the common, and in so doing - bring about those smiles, that say it all.

Best regards,


PS: I hope you will forgive my being incapable of making a single choice of a photo for this story.  As I went through the photos to make such a single choice - I found each one had a certain something that would be fun to include. ( even to the point of " throwing in the kitchen sink ' lol )

    I bet if you spin that really fast it looks pretty mesmerizing.
