Just My Type

You are elegant and refined...
a throwback to a more genteel era...

 You are worldly and well spoken,
a scintillating conversationalist, you are...

 Your wisdom has given you, undoubtedly,
the key to what is really important...

You are, in a word,
just my type!

Happy Wednesday!

A New Centerpiece

Not really new.
But new to you.

I've had this on our dining table for quite some time now,
but I've been so busy with other projects
that I'm finally getting back to sharing photos
of my own home.

I picked up this fabulous old tool box awhile back,
and knew immediately that it belonged center-stage 
on our dining table.

And I promptly proceeded to fill it up
with all the elements and textures that
make me all giddy and happy inside...

 Of course, a few pieces of my expansive collection
of white enamelware made its way there.
And a couple of small-ish wasp nests are right at home,
having been rescued from one of our barns.

Delicate linen napkins,
and some sprigs of lavender wrapped in twine.

 a French grain sack pillow filled with lavender,
graced with a delicate starfish accent.

 and the lace....

 my, oh my, the vintage lace runner....
my favorite piece on the table.
I just can't get enough of vintage linens these days!

 Iron and wood...
a match made in Heaven!

This piece has patina
and character to spare!

 My dining table...

Now open for business
and serving friends, family and guests!

If you're in the area,
for goodness sake, give me a holla.
Let me give you the tour firsthand, 
first of my charming little town,
then ( provided the house is clean! )
our quaint little farmhouse.

Have a blessed week!

My Beautiful Girl

I've spent a good bit of time photographing
the beauty created by other people in recent days...
and happily so!

But I looked around my abode this morning, 
and realized that I have been neglecting the beauty
found right under my nose.

Hello, beautiful girl!
Time to re-introduce you to my readers,
as they have not seen you decked out in all
your splendorous finery.

A little bit of this,
a little bit of that...

 All blended together seamlessly
on her womanly form.

 Did you know just how much
you enchant and inspire each time
I walk past you in the hallway?

Well, you do, my lovely.

'Tis a curse being quite so lovely,
some might say...

 But you, my beauty,
wear it well.

Have a beautiful week
in your own abodes!

All Decked Out

It's just a handful of grainy iPhone pics,
but I thought you'd like to see my ensemble for the
magnificent Magnolia Pearl fashion show
at Carol Hicks Bolton's amazing new shop...

Those are all the photos I have to share,
as I left the camera at home....yes, on purpose. ;-)

It was a magical night for everyone,
and I felt so honored to be there to witness
dreams being made reality for some really special people.

Here's hoping all your dreams come true, too.

Have a wonderful week!

The Best Way to Spend a Thursday

I spent yesterday on a ladder.
On a ladder.
You have no idea what a big deal that is for me.
I don't like ladders, for the same reason I don't
like the idea of riding a horse.
It's not the ladder or the horse I don't like,
it's the idea of falling off of either
that I'm not crazy about.

I'm ridiculously clumsy and accident prone,
but I did it anyway.
I conquered a fear, and I did it because
I love the people who asked me to do so,
and they were so, so worth it.

I've been fortunate enough to be asked to help
in my own small way get my friend
all gussied up and glorious for this Saturday's
spectacular Magnolia Pearl fashion show
at Carol's divine new shop.

So why was I on the ladder?
I was filling hanging mason jars 
with dried beans and then placing candles
inside....lots and lots and lots of candles!

It's going to look beyond stunning once it all comes together....
heck, it already looks mind-blowingly gorgeous, 
and there is still much to be done.
I'll be headed back today to see what help I can offer,
and I can't wait to see what new talent I learn today!

To those who have asked, I will not be shooting photos
at this event...I'm strictly going as a guest.
But if you are extra patient, you will see this event 
in print sometime soon, as a most wonderful group of
photographers, chiefly Amy Scarborough,
will be shooting this for a wonderful publication
to be released in the future.
I can't spill more now, 'tis not my story to tell.
But, oh how happy I am to be a part of it all!

And it's because of the likes of
and everyone else associated with this store,
this show, and this wonderful, joyous collection
of artists and muses.
Your passion for what you do makes my heart sing!

The aforementioned group are not only the most talented folks
I've ever had the pleasure of knowing, they are
also the most genuinely kind and giving as well.
They not only make me want to be
a better artist via my photography,
but a better person as well.
Thank you my friends!

It's good to be me these days...
good friends, good times, endless inspiration.
I have no complaints,
only thanks for God's abundant blessings.

I hope to see you this Saturday....TOMORROW!
