loving rusty old... trucks!

Whenever I'm on my travels, I can't help but photograph rusty old trucks!  
I love their vintage-ness... their muted colors...

... and the fact that they're usually "resting" amongst the grassy woods!
(I guess when you live in a house with four guys, you learn to appreciate the beauty in an old truck!)

a return to blogland

A big "HELLO!" to all of my old blogging buddies!
I can't believe I started my very first blog all the way back in 2006!

Since then, I've really taken a liking to amateur photography.
With summer coming, taking photos of Cape Cod in all its glory is a real treat.

I've also been selling my handcrafted jewelry at a local art gallery.  I'm so honored and flattered whenever I learn who the recipients of my creations are!  One particular necklace was chosen for a wedding... the girl who purchased it was so excited that she tweeted it right there in the shop (that made me feel awesome)! :)  

I'm hoping to show you some of my photos and creations here... let's see if I can become a more dutiful blogger from now on!

Hope you're all having a fabulous time decorating, cooking and playing this holiday season!

oh buoy!

 Just popping in to say "hello!"
We felt a tiny earthquake here in New England yesterday around 7:15pm... it doesn't happen that often, so you can imagine the buzz all over the internet and the news last night.  Pretty funny actually. ;)

Happy Wednesday!

Four Months???

Wow!  I can't believe it's been four months since my last post!
We've been having a fabulous (and tremendously busy) summer... how about you?
Most of my spare time has been spent making jewelry for a local art gallery... some of the stories behind the ladies buying some of my pieces truly make me smile.  One young lady bought a necklace to wear to an upcoming wedding... she was so excited she tweeted it right then and there from the gallery.  I love when I can put a smile on someone's face.
Hope you're having a wonderful summer! :)

Rock Harbor

Rock Harbor - Orleans, MA

Well, I promised more photos of NYC, but I have so many of them I'm still in the process of photoshopping (I have nearly 250 keepers, and I'm going to put them into a book for my family as a souvenir of our trip). I'll show you more NYC photos at a later time. However, I can certainly show you more Cape Cod photos! Today's photos were taken at Rock Harbor in Orleans (on a VERY overcast day).

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

A Beautiful Spring Day in NYC

Battery Park, NYC
I find myself still going over the multitude of photos I took while in NYC!  Here's one I took on a 90F day last week, while strolling around Battery Park (before we headed for the ferry to take us to Liberty and Ellis Islands).  As I complete my photos, I will show you a few more. ;)
Happy Friday!
