It’s been one-and-a-half weeks since the movers hauled our stuff into our new home, and we are about 90% moved in. Unpacking my office is usually one of my top priorities (after the kitchen), but I will be having shelves added to my walls within the next month or so and need to wait for the space before I unpack my dishes and miscellaneous camera gear. So, I basically have a bunch of unpacked boxes sitting in the closet, which is driving me just a little bit crazy. :) My ceramics studio is still a work-in-progress, and it will be several weeks before the workers can come in and start making it beautiful. So, for the most part, I have been sitting at my computer all day long.

However, it’s difficult for me to just sit around and do everything on my computer. I enjoy making things with my hands, whether it’s cooking or playing with clay, and so I knew that it was time for me to get back to the work I love! I have some of my newer ceramic dishes unpacked, and was able to dig up a few of the other props needed for a food shoot. So I picked up a few things from the market and made it happen! The dish is relatively simple. It’s a mixture of watermelon, blueberries, kumquats, and goat cheese, garnished with some lime zest and a sprig of mint in the background. And, it was quite refreshing. :)
