bringing feisty back!!

I'm back!!!
So, yes, it has been quite a while...almost a year to be exact!!
I have been super busy during that time!
I started a little photography business...
and I love being behind the lens...
but being a gal that can't just focus on one creative area...
I am longing for those creative adventures of my feisty days...
painting, cooking, gardening, decorating, thrifting...etc!!
So, I am bringing feisty back!

We recently moved to another house and I am super excited to make it feisty-ful!
I feel like I have a new palette!
And I hope you'll join me for my decorating do-overs!
I have also started a new garden,
I'll be thrifting as much as possible,
and I'm sooo ready to create some new paintings!

So, won't you join me for my daily shenanigans?
I promise to inspire or at least give you a good laugh...

thought I would give ya a little sneak peek of my new place...

loving the lighting in the living area...

my mom and I planted beautiful blue hydrangeas and pink impatients in the garden...

my art studio...still very much a work in progress

This is what i see everyday in my backyard...
I think he's laughing at me!

and i'm also getting ready for a local show!!
how exciting!!
i love how all the photos look next to each other...
thinking i may need a grouping of them together on one of my walls!

so much more to show you...tune in soon!!!!
