here i go again

Well, I'm definitely not the best blogger.  I haven't posted in quite some time.
But, I thought I'd let you know what I've been up to lately.  The past year, I've enjoyed playing around with food photography and props.  I guess I felt the need to do something with all those thrifted kitchen items.  It's been fun!  And, I've really learned a lot, too.  Always a good thing.  The following are a few of my favorites.  You can see more by clicking on this link.

Summertime Cherries

A little copper collection.
One can never have too many vintage utensils.
Playing around with pink and green.

baking day
summertime berry cobbler.  what's not to love?

It's hard to believe it's the end of summer.  This one was fast, but definitely a good one.  
Our family visited the beach and I took just a few photos;)




We also visited the lake with my parents.  
 
Frequented the farmer's market as much as possible.
 And, enjoyed all the blooms in my garden.


This summer I've also tried to spend time in my art studio.  I feel very rusty.  It's really been years since I've made anything.  But, I'm trying, really trying to spend time out there.  To say it's been frustrating is an understatement.  Most days I feel like I failed at what I set out to make that day.  And, there have been lots of tears at the end of the day.  But, I know it's a process.  I will find my groove, hopefully sooner than later, and that will feel good.  Until then, I'm going to keep on trying and creating as much as possible.  Even if my only creation is a huge mess. 
Hope you'll follow along!
