Life's moments

I found some really wonderful children's that so many of you love to collect..
Children's photos are great..because they capture that moment in time when all things are new ....

I have a grandson these days and my daughter is expecting #2! Well, my grandson is 19months old ..and is a handful...yet everything is so exciting to him..
his very favorite thing in the world are dogs! (we have 2) so he is over daily..playing with the dogs..
although he doesn't quite talk..he often barks..telling us he wants to see the dogs!!

When I saw this reminded me of that wonderful look of wonder...
When all the world is full of hope and life..

oh may we remember what it is like to be a child..and keep that in our own hearts...

Portraits ~ Stories a face can tell

I love old portraits..I love the art that a face has...and this week for sale on eBay, I have many portraits (ok, I usually have many portraits!!) but this week, I have quite a few that I LOVE. I mean, I looked at them and went..WOW..if only we could know the stories these faces could tell.

One of the things I did when I was young was go to Antique stores and buy old cabinet photos. I would look at the old pictures and make up stories about the faces...making up characters for stories..making them good or evil..or a bit of both! must check out some portraits!! God's work of art!!

have a great week!!

2013 ~ A New Year!

Well...after a Long hiatus from my blog...
I had a daughter's wedding, a best friend with brain cancer, a father with bone cancer, a daughter who just announced a new other has been a lot lately...

So I did what every woman wants to do...
I took off work, redid my office, which meant fixing the walls, repairing the problems with the electrical (ok, it is an Old house!) putting up crown molding, painting, getting new office furniture..and reorganizing my photos..

It has been fun..a bit crazy...especially when my entire office ended up in the living room...

but today it is finished, the furniture is in...and i am cleaning out the living room!!
Spring cleaning really helps during tough times...

I have so many beautiful photos that I will be showing you soon...I have been getting some real art photos..
I am so in love with them..things that are not just the ordinary..but the rare..and beautiful..

hope your winter is good..and that if things are hard a bit of house keeping helps ...

cathi  ( some photos of Daughter Hayleys Wedding...soo beautiful!!)
