Little Buddy

I've mentioned before that G never wants in on the photography action, 
until I'm snapping something other than him!!
Let me present Exhibit A:

It did make a cute shot, though.  :-)

Again with the candle holders!
The light bouncing off this one in my kitchen was just so pretty 
I had to snap some quick pics.  

Happy weekend to you!

Feeling Beachy

My last antiquing trip left me with these "beachy" images. 
I'm taking them as a hint!

Don't get me wrong, I love the cheesy, smiley pics.  
...but sometimes, 
the real little boy faces are just better.

I Spy

  I spy this fabulous shade at Perch...

...as a chair in this month's Trad Home magazine.

Just a little observation that needed pointing out.

A Little Luck

My mom found these FANTASTIC mirrors at our local antiques show a few months back and I may still be a little a lot jealous. 
She even got them at an incredible price!

Beach Baby

Typically fall is my favorite time of the year to take pics.
However, these sweet summer shots may change my mind.

So, how many times have you seen a cute tassel?
Never, because they only come in bad colors.    
Lucky for me, I scooped up these white ones on the cheap and decided to dye my own.  
Love, love, love!

Around The House

I'm really making an effort to better utilize my camera settings and to instantly know 'where to go' instead of thinking about it so long.     
I literally walked around my house experimenting with different light and here are a few of my 'test' shots I had fun playing with.  

Still have lots of room for improvement, but I'm feeling better about it!

North Carolina Beaches

I worked on this over the weekend as I'm trying really hard to actually USE some of my pics.  
I was inspired by a wood carving I saw in an antique store - it was a great idea, just not my jam.  
This suits me much better!

Now, I need to make one for SC beaches. 
...to go in the SC beach house!

Happy Ending

This is where my happy little candelabra ended up.  
...and we like it.

I'm looking forward to a fun shopping trip this weekend -
hoping to score some much needed things for the house!
Happy Friday to you!

Red, White, and Blueberry

Last week, G and I traded our city life for a few days on the farm.  
I just couldn't resist snapping a few pics of these blueberry bushes, 
how pretty!

Rainy Days and Mondays

What a weekend!

We spent LOTS of time on the beach and watched G's first 4th of July fireworks display.  
(This is the first year we let him stay up to watch them!)

It was a very happy 4th!

Summer Celebration

This picture sums up the 4th of July for me, 
isn't this what it's all about?  
This isn't my little guy, but he is a super cute and sweet playmate of G's.  
...and one who stands still, poses, and looks at you when you ask him to.
Very refreshing!

Happy 4th of July!!

Thanks, Again

Thanks, again, Southern Living.  
My husband is a Pimento Cheese junky so I couldn't resist when I saw a recipe in Southern Living.  
I used it for a tapas night and served with crackers, but it will make a great sandwich as well.
