The Magic of Macro

Do you ever play with the settings on your camera? That tulip one is a macro setting. I don't know the fancy explanation of it, nor do I intend to copy and paste it from anywhere. But, what it does, is let you get real close up and see things in a different way.

This past weekend, I got to do a little shopping for The Primitique. Since we are still aiming for a Labor Day weekend Grand Opening, I figure I better stock up now! While I won't let you see the big picture, or buy anything just yet, I thought I'd give you a little teaser of things to come at the new store!

For you locals who are antsy to do some buying, I do have a space that is open and selling in Athens, Texas. Winnie & Tulula's is proud to celebrate the opening of The Sweet Pea Bistro this Wednesday, August 11. Exciting times! Come see what is happening at 119 E. Tyler St, Athens, Texas. Open Wednesday - Saturday 10am-5pm.

Happy Monday!


  1. Thanks, I wondered what that flower was for! I mostly point and click. Love the little sneak peeks...Can't wait to see your new place and will make a trip to the new Bistro before school start!

  2. Push and pull...sounds like the story of our junking lives! I got a little hunch there is a 2die4 icebox on the other side of that crusty white handle!
    Cool photos...way cool!

  3. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Macro/Micro setting on my camera. But I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Teaser photos MORE!


  4. Ooops! It IS macro...I just fixed that. Thanks, Tricia!

  5. Shoot, I am doing good just to turn the camera on, aim and shoot!!! Could be the eyes just don't see like they use your micro pics though!! Happy Junkin...Cathy aka GGJ

  6. I'm a fiend for numbers, so I like!

  7. Sometimes that macro setting works for me and other times, I just mess it up. I have a hard time getting my camera to focus in that setting and it's auto focus, so I have no control. Ya, I'm blaming it on the camera. ;-)


  8. Don't know anything about that setting....probably becuz I can't see it! :( But, I do love your pictures!!

  9. i sometimes just wonder how to turn the stinkin' camera on!!! i don't know what the numbers are attached to - but i must own those. i'm just sayin'....

  10. I am a Macro FREAK....great photos and can't wait to see the rest - congrats on what is sure to be just fantastic!


  11. Wishing you all of the very best Mindy and yes the Macro tease is working even out here in Cali. Sending you hugs across the miles


  12. Great, great stuff, Mindy. I'm sure you're having fun getting prepared for the Grand Opening.
