Shadow Shot and SOOC Sunday

This is my son and daughter in law's lovely little breakfast niche in their home. On the Sunday morning we were leaving I thought the sun coming through the blinds created some lovely shadows.
There is one of these little alcoves on all but one floor of the four story home.
Oh, by the way, under that cake platter on the table was the remains of a german-chocolate cake made with coconut flour. My son found he is allergic to wheat flour so they have been experimenting with alternatives. The cake was delicious!!!
This is my grandkitty Susie soaking up the warmth of the rays on that gorgeous reflecting wooden floor. I love the shadow of the blinds on the floor and the shadows in the chair seat and sweet Susie!
Both images are as they were - straight out of the camera!

That must be a really beautiful house. Love the hardwood floors and big windows. Sweet Susie seems content. I've never heard of coconut flour. I'll have to tell my daughter, who has celiac and can't eat wheat products.

Jeanne said...

I LOVB the light in both pictures! Perfect Carletta.

What a pretty place to eat breakfast, lunch & supper for that matter! Kitty looks content too!
You are making us hungary talking german chocolate cake though!!

Jan said...

Fun shots. Love your grandkitty Susie!

Great shots. Miss Susie is so content. :D

Both lovely photos of a lovely niche. I like the cat, too.

I have experimented with rice and soy flour, but not coconut flour. I finally decided it was just too much trouble, so I have given up bread, pasta, etc. Cake flour doesn't have much gluten, so it doesn't bother me much, but, then, I only eat a very small piece occasionally when celebrating someone's birthday.

My Shadow Shot is HERE.

Looks like a lovely spot for enjoying a relaxing Sunday breakfast! Or a morning tea with German Chocolate cake!

Awww...sweet Susie. She appears very happy there :)

What a lovely place to have breakfast, sitting in the sun! It looks so warm and welcoming, especially with that kitty relaxing ( do they ever do anything else?) in the sun!

Such a lovely spot in the house - I wish I could find such a neat one in mine :) Kids have their print everywhere. The kitty is so sweet - made the Sunday morning leasure scene even more peaceful.

Raven said...

What a beautiful spot! Looks like something out of House Beautiful! And your grandkitty looks so pretty and content. I never heard of coconut flour. What an interesting idea.

I love the sunshine streaming through the windows, and this shows off the beautiful wooden floor. I also love the pattern of the blinds on the floor. The table and chairs look so inviting. Kitty-cat is soaking up the morning sun. I can almost hear the purring.

Pagan Sphinx said...

Such delicious light. And the kitty adds such a homey touch!

Linda said...

Great photo -- what a beautiful room. And your grandkitty is a cutie.

What a warm and inviting place! I can understand why the kitty loves to spend much time there!

Rose said...

That is a lovely shot, Carletta!

I bet Lily and Lucy have missed you being there!

Simply BEAUTIFUL spot to sit in the shadows and enjoy the view. I see the family kitty loves it too ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

That looks so peaceful.
Like it's just waiting for someone to raise the blinds and sit awhile.
