Fresh from the store, the torn paper grocery bag has spilt the vegetables over the kitchen floor. Todays's mail and clean boots mix in with the tumbled shopping.

Trying to find mud in the middle of winter, when the earth remains frozen, is a bit of a challenge.

I had to rely on my previous Mud Pie Baker experience to get my boots nice and muddy for the still life photo shoot.

(tremendous fun)

The Muddy Study set up moved around my tiny apartment on its foam core platform, combining with life's debris - today's mail, envelopes opened and discarded, packing peanuts and tissue paper spilling across the table, yesterday's teacups waiting to be cleared away

I love my battered old, paper covered shoe box that houses the shoe polishing stuff. Not to mention the juicy rich colors of the polish, with the soft warm yellow of the polish cloth.
The smell of clear wax and the solid feel of the wooden brush in my hands - it's a wonder I don't clean my shoes more often!

At last! Time to clear away the beet leaves and carrot peel; polish the boots and recycle the paper grocery bags, boxes and packing peanuts

I think that deserves a fresh cup of tea
