Lives Gone By...

I love poking around old cemeteries.  I know the new modern headstones are easier to maintain - but so flat and blah...

Front Porch...

Those were the days - a couple of rocking chairs on the front porch - a wonderful way to while away some time, talk to neighbors, dream...

Original photo take in Beaufort, NC.

I brought my orchid plant indoors.  It looks so pretty sitting on an end table in my living room!

Beach Wedding...

On my Sunday morning walk, I found the remnants of a Saturday night beach wedding.  How romantic being married under a bower of flowers at sunset.  My husband and I were married in a small chapel in the woods - that was very romantic too!  How about you?  Where did you say your vows?

Original photos taken with my I-phone.

 These flowers were in pots at the base of the bower.
Several Topaz Labs filters added.  "2701" texture courtesy of Kim Klassen.

We're putting our house up for sale.  One piece of advice our realtor gave us was to declutter - oh my!  So many of my little treasures are considered clutter - who knew (besides my husband - goes without saying - right?!)  This galvanized tub is filled with shoe forms, wood stamps and metal batik stamps.

I've already thrown a ton of stuff away; filled boxes to donate to St. Vincent de Paul.  Still there are some things I cannot part with.  I sure hope no one feels the need to look in the closets - they will be crammed...with good stuff...

Come Sit Awhile...

Wouldn't it be lovely to sit awhile in this chair and dream big dreams?  (It'll be a tad uncomfortable given the state of the back of the chair!)
