and i think i'll celebrate by taking some time off and getting outside. i did some weeding last night and i'd like to finish the bed i started today. with my parent's 50th anniversary party here on sunday, i think a few things need to be done outside. we have lots of vegetation and it gets really unruly, especially when i'm in photoland. i'd also like to work on some things around the house and particularly my studio. it's out of control again. i'm thinking about having a supersized garage sale and getting rid of a bunch of scrapbooking stuff and the overflow from our storage unit. it could be a really great sale...i'm just not sure i have the extra energy. plus, i like to donate my scrapbooking stuff to becca's event in the fall. i just need to find out if she's having it this year. she's been a little busy lately : )
this weekend, we have a wedding, fireworks at the lake, church, and my parent's 50th party here. lots of time with friends and family. i like that. plus, i'm really looking forward to our cooking club's garden tea party here too. i even bought a new polka dot sundress to wear.
my friend pam loves her grandsons like no one i've ever seen before. it was fun to see her with them and get to snap a few pics-
their mama kinda likes them too.
and oliver undoubtedly, loves his grandma. so sweet!
this morning, i've already been to an estate sale and 2 garage sales. i only picked up a couple of things. this little jar is so charming...albeit a little dirty.
i'll get it cleaned up and figure out where it goes. i just had to have it. i also picked up a pink/cream plaid wool blanket.
last night, i finally made time to go up to my studio after a shoot. (the shoot was really cool-a family harley shoot) i did this layout in about 15 minutes. which is unheard of for me.
here's another thing i've come to the realization of lately. i like simple pages. over the course of time, i find that the simple pages are the ones i like years later. oh and as i've said before, i am not a clever title-maker. in fact, i really don't like cheesy titles at all. they don't stand the test of time well. i think that as with decorating your home, and how you dress, classic usually holds up the best. i love to look at an old photo, that is timeless because of classic simple clothes. same with layouts. classic and simple. or maybe it's more a case of, staying with what's true to you. and for me, that's simple and classic. if i was a more funky person, or flambouyant, maybe those type of clothes, decorating, or pages would appeal more to me years later. just my thoughts.
seems like i'm forgetting something i was going to post about, but i'm anxious to get to my day of activities. i hope you have a fantastic day and God bless!
