Six Months Ago

September 13, 2011.

Six months ago today, I lost my dear and precious mom.

The days seem to get easier as time goes on,
but days, like today, are the hard ones.

Birthdays, Christmas, Mother's Day...
and the monthly turning of the page to the 13th...
those are the difficult ones.

It's also the smaller, quieter moments which hit
particularly hard.
Like wanting to just pick up the phone and share
some happy news, some recent success.
She was always my biggest fan.

Treasure those you love.
Let them know and more importantly,
show them while they are still here.

Me: "i love you"
My Mom: "i love you more"

It's Raining, It's Pouring...

....but I'm ready....

My subtle new rain boots.

Think they'll see me coming
when I wear these to the antique shows
at Marburger in a few weeks?  ;-)

Happy Weekend!

I'm back on Pinterest now,
but only pinning my own photos.

I can't help but share this
silly, happy photo I found
via google images,
it just sums up my life right now...

I am so happy.

I love my life, I love my friends.
I love the sweet little town where I live,
and I love all the amazing new friends I've made there.

I love being a photographer ( albeit part-time ).
I love all the blessings and professional opportunities
coming my way of much exciting news to share!

I love my faith, I love my family, 
I love all my blog buddies and readers.
I am blissfully, sickeningly happy.... 
deal with it, people. Ha!

It's just too darn bad that I'm not
a glow-worm, 'cause right about now,
I'd be lighting up the sky. { via my bum }

I love textures.
But this time I'm not talking about 
the kind you add via Photoshop,
although those are certainly lovely
in their own right.

No, I'm talking about the delightful, dizzying array
of textures to be found
during a stroll through

rusty old film reels

a well -used butcher's block

industrial gears

vintage signs both domestic...

and international

and a much loved, peely chest...

These  are the textures
that make my knees weak.

I have found myself falling more and more
in love with being a photographer in recent

It's a joy that makes me giddy and content,
as I feel a fulfillment and inspiration
which comes from doing something
one truly loves.

Thank you for letting me share a little
of my love with you.

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.

{ necklace with metal number tag, cross and bling purchased here }

'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!
