Dust Bunnies and Dirty Windows…

We had a beautiful day with sunshine and blue skies. It was too wet to work outside so I worked inside removing dust bunnies and other various dirt related psuedoanimals…

So I’m tired…this tired…

Political Fundraiser…


My friend Jackie and I attended a Women’s Political Luncheon Saturday. It was held at our local university. The reason we attended was to support the young man in this mosaic. He is an aspiring local politician. He is exactly what our country needs right now, a young man with morals and Christian beliefs that are unshakable.


In the mosaic above our young politician is surrounded by his beautiful wife, mother and grandmother. What a perfect way to start your campaign by being supported by the most important ladies in his life!!! This young couple were actually glowing (Btw wife is 6 wks preggo) with their no. 3!!!

image These beautiful young ladies provided some wonderful entertainment. They are both   students of biology at this university. That beautiful redhead is the daughter of  Mike Snyder, country music’s banjo pickin’ comedian that hails from our area. Talk about talent, these two beauties have it all!!!


                           Each luncheon table was colorfully decorated and the meal was wonderful!!!



                 The speakers table held those two beautiful cakes. Our politician’s wife baked both of them           and  they were auctioned for mucho bucks!!!



The gentlemen in the center top photo is a local political leader, I think he was eating Tums at that point. Jackie and I had been “discussing” politics with him.

Some Tea Party Fun…


Since I’m such a big fan of Rhondi’s beautiful photos, I thought I’d share some photos of a couple of tea sets that I have in my files.


This set belongs to my friends Jackie and Louis, they have beautiful things in their century old renovated home.


This is Jackie and Louis in their dining room. Louis prepared a wonderful meal and the evening was so special with good friends and riveting conversation. Some local wine was furnished by Mr. and Mrs. Jackson.


This little teaset belongs to me, my husband purchased it at an auction here in the town where we live. It is Shofu, made in Occupied Japan. He buys the good stuff, I shop at Goodwill. I will have to get some better photos of this set soon.

Linda and Howard

image I finally got a chance to make photographs this weekend. This is a couple that we had a lovely dinner with Saturday night. Linda is the owner of a new wedding chapel for this area!!! Photos of her new endeavor will be coming soon.  Linda and Howard bought an old church for this, one Linda had been a member of years ago. Linda is also employed full time in the medical field and owns a floral design business…talk about energy!!!  Of course, Howard has a lot of diy time in this project also.



We had this delicious meal and I’ll tell you more about this evening later this week.

Mary at Little Red House has many more mosaics over at her house!!!

I Just Can’t Wait For This…


What….Flea Markets, Yard Sales, Estate Sales…anything that smells of a bargain…it’s genetic…my husband says it’s a sickness :-( 


If I hadn’t traveled to this flea market in a jet, I’d have bought some goodies…carry on baggage just doesn’t allow for many dishes!!!



Let’s purchase a hat so we won’t sunburn…I think I’ll have the green one on the right please!!!


I see a butter dish with green flowers, a green mixing bowl, and green shirts…I sure would have liked to buy that wooden rolling pin!!!


See those aluminum tumblers, my Mom had some when I was a child and I hated them…they sweated so bad!!! One of those tumblers is green!!!


I had so much fun watching this guy make doughnuts…maybe I was hungry…more green clothes!!!


See those lovely little gems…I can taste them now…he’s catching them with a green spatula/drainy thingy…


Let’s pull up a couple of those vintage chairs and prowl through all of that delightful vintage jewelry…I see a green necklace!!!


Such a delightful way to spend a day…green letters and trees!!!

First Christian Church

This is a photo of our local First Christian Church in our small town. I love to photograph old churches because there is so much to observe about the old buildings.


The buttercups are blooming!!!

Portrait Fun...

I was so lucky to get to photograph this lovely family last fall. Daughter, son and father posed for me but Mom preferred to stay in the background. I would have loved to photograph all of them because they were a very photogenic family.


I’ve been experimenting with editing these photographs. I made this one black and white and then gave it a film grain. The next step was adjusting the soft focus choice. I think it sort of looks old-fashioned now. The second photo of this young lady was just cropped and given a sepia color treatment…




The following photo was treated to a sepia colortone and given a soft focus also.
