Summer Shot

A friend of mine saw this picture I took a couple of weeks ago and she asked for the original file because she said it would look perfect framed in her home. So, I thought I'd put it out there for anyone else that may be interested in using it. I created a couple of different versions and looks to provide you some options. You can click on the image and it will take you to Flickr to download different sizes from there.

I think it would make a great framed print, but you could also use it for summer invites, cards, birthday parties, summer sales promotions...

Let me know how you're going to use it and if you do use it in your home, send me a pic of the final product and I'll post it here! If you used any of the free fretwork prints, I'd love to see what you did with them as well!

  1. I'm a relatively new follower - love your blog, you're a woman after my own (Southern) heart! I love photography and quality porch time in the summer, so obviously I think these pictures are phenomenal. Please continue to share!

  2. I love the bright colors of these chairs! They remind me of our cottage in MI.


  3. I just started reading your blog. I LOVE these pictures but what I love the most is that the same picture can look SO different and I have no idea what you changed. I am staring at the pictures the way I would a photo hunt screen looking for the small changes. Yet they're SO different. Love it!

  4. What a fun picture... I love all the colors!

Blog Cards (The New Calling Card)

I came across this budding trend online and thought - what a great idea! I have people that occasionally ask for my blog address and wouldn't it be great to have a blog card with just my blog address on it to give to people? I guess you could say it's the new calling card. It can make your blogging duties feel much more ligit and even promote your blog if it's something you're trying to profit from. has templates for mini cards that would be perfect for blog cards. Cathe at Just Something I Madeposted some great examples of blog cards she's used in the past to promote her blog -

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
