I’m Back

I’m Back {11}

Hello there.  So – you know that there might be concerns about announcing that you’re going to be away from your house for an extended period of time.  We have a house sitter while we are away but still…. But now that I’m back I can tell you that I was away on vacation for(…)

All the Fun of the Fair {late summer fun at the county fair}

All the Fun of the Fair {late summer fun at the county fair} {7}

Have I ever told you that I’m a farm girl?  I know that I’ve talked about it before but I’m not sure if you were here and listening back then.  We didn’t own a farm and we didn’t even live on a farm but my mother worked on a farm and we lived just down(…)

Country Living Magazine Fair {part 2}

Country Living Magazine Fair {part 2} {24}

Okay.  I’m just going to put this right out there, first thing.  The next Country Living Magazine Fair will take place in Mid-September in Columbus, Ohio and I am angling for a way to get there.  All the while that I’ve been editing the (way too many) photos that I’m sharing with you, I’ve been(…)

Summertime.  {and the Country Living is easy}

Summertime. {and the Country Living is easy} {14}

Last week I shared my trip to Sharon Springs, New York with all of you.  After my visits to the Beekman 1802 Mercantile and the Beekman Farm, I was truly hard pressed to narrow down the photos I would post here on the blog.  You might find it interesting to know that when I photograph(…)

Beek Week(end) Part 2 {the mansion, the barn, and every living thing on Beekman Farm} {37}

I am so sorry you had to wait this long to see the rest of the photos from my weekend in Sharon Springs, New York.  I wish I could have gotten them to you sooner but it’s been a crazy week so far.  I’m going to put TONS of photos into this post in an(…)

Beek Week(end) Part 1 {town wide festival and the new Beekman 1802 Mercantile} {22}

I usually like to start off my posts with a nice little story.  Sometimes I like to pull you in with some interesting and often moving anecdote from my childhood and then hit you with my stunning photographic skills some pretty pictures.  For this post I considered telling you the amusing tale of how I first(…)

A Kitchen Stool {beauty inside and out}

A Kitchen Stool {beauty inside and out} {22}

We are nearing the end of what I want to share with you about what I did and saw while I was at the Lucketts Spring Market last weekend.  It’s almost time to move on to my next adventure.  Mr. Social Media and I are going away this weekend to Sharon Springs, New York.  Sharon(…)

Yellow {buttercup, lemon, mustard, lucketts}

Yellow {buttercup, lemon, mustard, lucketts} {28}

My kids are always asking me to state my favorite color. And I can’t. I can very clearly remember asking my own mother what her favorite color was when I was their age. . . She would give me the same answer that I give them now: “I don’t really have a favorite.”  I found it very(…)

Long Day at Lucketts {but not long enough. . .}

Long Day at Lucketts {but not long enough. . .} {7}

Did it rain?  Yes. Was it a little chilly? Yes. Did I have a great time anyway? YES! And even though it did rain, I didn’t get wet at all.  I arrived a bit late and thus I missed the early rain.   And then when the skies opened up later on in the afternoon?(…)

Insert Sound of Crashing Waves {wish you were here…}

Insert Sound of Crashing Waves {wish you were here…} {16}

So. If I had taken my camera (phone) or even my “real” camera down to the beach with me this morning I would have taken a picture and shared it with you.  As it was, I had no camera and had to record the image with my mind.  Remember? When that was generally the way(…)

It’s 88 Degrees Today. {don’t hate me because i’m warm} {18}

So, yes.  I’m on vacation.  And I’m feeling a little weird about telling you about my vacation.  I know that a lot of you are hip deep in ice and snow right now. I got this text from my mother this morning: WEEKEND.  COLD. RAINY. SLUSHY.  My favorites! Here is a screen shot of the(…)

This Weather {is for the birds}

This Weather {is for the birds} {24}

I always think that the landscape outside at my house is beautiful.  I doesn’t matter what season it is.  Winter can be especially fetching with  the great expanse of brilliant white snow on the hillside behind the house.  Winter can also be a bit grey and plain old cold when all of that snow goes(…)
