{ my personal favorite }





I've been so lucky to learn from the best of the best,
Amy Lynn Scarborough of 
these past couple of shoots.

She's the number one Magnolia Pearl shooter,
and has been more than generous
in helping me to overcome
my fear and aversion to 
photographing people.

These photos aren't official MP advertising photos,
just a little peek into how I'm easing
into another aspect of photography.
Come to find out, I love
photographing people!

And from the new Spring collection...

Junk Salvation...Can I Get An "Amen?!"


Salvation comes in many forms, it is said.
And truth be told, 
I've experienced more than a few.

But prior to last Spring,
I had yet to relish firsthand the
"hallelujah, lordy
will ya look at all that heavenly JUNK !!!" 
form of redemption brought to junkers
far and wide by the beauteous and beneficent 
otherwise known as real-life sisters
Dixie Kazmark DeRocher and Linda Kazmark Albers.

These dynamite bundles of sibling junkin' energy
are responsible for Junk Salvation Vintage Flea Market
shows that the sisters tirelessly put on across this great land of ours,
rounding up the cream of the crop to join them.

Although they are based in Puyallup, Washington,
that hardly stops them from venturing to parts near, far
and in between to share the Junk Salvation love. 
Hooray and another Hallelujah for that!

Last Spring, I caught up with the gals at their Texas show,
held at the J.Lorraine Ghost Town in Manor, Texas,
near Austin.

And whaddaya know?
Fifi O'Neill caught a gander of the photos
I snapped there, and has featured them and my photos
in the Spring 2013 Romantic Country Magazine
in their "Best of the Fleas" !








The sisters....sweetness, beauty, talent and junking goddesses!
And coming back to Texas this year!




Here's the best of the rest.
Enjoy!






The ghost town setting was the perfect backdrop
for a day full of spirited junking. { groan, I know... }


















Magic Mike's got NOTHIN' on this guy.




I finally had the pleasure of meeting 
this talented and gracious lady,
Jana Holland of Collected Treasures and Nettie Jane Designs.










And then I bumped into sweet Maggie Lopez of The Veranda,
and she graciously allowed me to snap the photo below,
full of her wowza stamped spoon jewelry....


Which in turn caught the eye of one Sue of Vintage Rescue Squad,
which led to this.....


Thank you, Maggie and Sue!
You too can have a copy of the 2013 Dreaming of Junking Calendar

And another favorite...there is NOTHING that Brandy does
that I do not love! Her creative mind works in magically
twisted ways, and her creations never fail to astound and inspire.

Visit her Etsy Shop, but make sure you have your
credit card number handy, you're gonna need it.
Her creations are wonderfully, quirkily addictive!












But my favorite photo of the day
had to be THIS one below....


That pretty much says it all.
The beer was cold and wonderful, but the drins?
I wouldn't know.
