The Back Fence

I noticed the rays of sunlight streaming through the fence as we pulled into our driveway.  Sometimes I feel like everywhere I look I see a picture.  I grabbed my camera (usually just arm's reach away) and laid down on my belly in the grass.  My husband and daughters were baffled.

New York City Sister Trip

Just got back from a trip to New York City with two of my favorite people. It was my first visit to the city and I loved it-so much to see, so much good food, lots of walking in the crisp air, and best of all, the best company.

Pink Magnolia

These pink magnolia trees are blooming in a couple of our neighbors' yards. They're gorgeous & I want to plant them in the front and back yards.

Prince & The Pea

Do you know the fairy tale of The Princess and The Pea? It came to mind as I was taking these pics of our little Prince Gilbert.

Anniversary Party

In honor of the one year anniversary of our girls' adoption, we invited family over to wrap up in warm blankets, eat too much junk food, and be subjected to an outdoor showing of Alvin & The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel.
We are so very grateful to know these two girls and to be called a family. We praise God for them!

Vintage Thermos Vases

I'm loving these beautifully worn thermoses with sunflowers sitting on my kitchen window sill.

Vintage Camera Display

It's not uncommon to find funky old cameras in second-hand stores. I love all the boxy shapes and varied designs. Each one is a little sculpture. I've received some of these as gifts and others I've picked up for around $1-$6.
I was so inspired by Tim Melideo's vintage camera display, that I did my own version.
