Every so often I join Eric and the photography group he’s a member of on one of their Photowalks. Over the weekend, the group went to the Ft. Worth Zoo. I usually enjoy the zoo, and thought it would be a great way to practice my photography and maybe learn a thing or two. These […]

The Week’s Photos

8/23/09 – 8/29/09 So my long weekend was rather productive craft-wise. I finished the little pincushion I was working on here. Isn’t it cute? I also finished my Peacock Pinkeep (ie the ice cream sandwich). I love how it turned out. In fact, I was so happy with how it turned out, I sent photos […]

A Week in Photos

8/16/09 – 8/22/09 My birthday week. My ILs gave me this beautiful orchid for my birthday. And I’m so in love with the morning light in my kitchen window. Too bad I have to look at my neighbor’s cars because they can’t be bothered to park in their flippin’ garage. Where was I? Oh yeah, […]

A Week in Photos

8/9/09 – 8/15/09 I titled this one “Bluebird of Happiness”. You may remember my photo of the necklace when I made it. I just love the combo of the bird and the blue top. Went to see Harry Potter with my HP buddy, Sherri. One of my favorite polish colors – Essie’s After Sex. Appropos […]

Sunday Night Cocktail – Devil’s Tail and Prince Edward

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a Sunday Night Cocktail. And since it’s almost the weekend again, I thought it was a good way to ring in a Thursday. Today I’ve got two for the price of one for you. First up is the Prince Edward, which was Eric’s drink. He enjoyed this one, and […]

Week in Photos

8/2/09 – 8/8/09 When I was putting away my new program from the circus, I thought it would be fun to look at some of the programs I’ve gotten since Eric and I have been together. In fact, I loved this photo so much I’ve set it as my wallpaper on my phone. And I […]

Under the Big Top

The past couple of summers Eric has taken me to the circus. In fact, the first time I ever went to the circus was when he took me and I enjoyed myself thoroughly. This outing was no different. I love the anticipation of the show before hand. And the snacks… Gotta have a sno-cone! And […]

The Bangles

credit Recently, I entered a really generous giveaway on Coterie’s blog, and won! I won this amazing bangle from A. Tierney. As soon as I saw this beautiful piece, I fell in love with the little seahorses. Isn’t it fun? Thanks so much to both A. Tierney and to Coterie for this wonderful opportunity to […]
