Yesterday was apparently all about the books for me…

-Painted with Golden acrylics.
-Approx. 10″ x 7 1/4″ x 1″ Piece of pine

Tucked in a perfect trunk of a tree, Rabbit always found himself lost in a good book while in his reading den. Surrounded by fireflies, and a light lit by more in a jar, this was his favorite spot!

Autumn!

It’s finally starting to really look like Autumn around here! Our neighbor has the two best trees on the block, so we always go over and ask if we can utilize his yard. Thankfully, he always says yes. =P

Reading by the Fire

Reading by the fire
Ahh, it’s feeling like Autumn today! (Yesterday was miserable, so let’s not talk about that) I thought I’d do a little photoshoot with Anna, a book, the fireplace, and some old fake logs. Oh and why not a chicken! It’s been a while since I involved a chicken in a shoot. Kittens kept photo-bombing the shots, but that’s ok.
Cat bombed the shot
Unfortunately, I can’t decide which I like the most, so I had to upload them all.

Summer Reading

Summer Reading

The joy of cracking open a new-to-you book, delving right into another world, and meeting all sorts of people. Summer is the best time for the children to partake in new adventures. The kids are enjoying my birthday books. =)

Birthday Books and a Pet Show

Books
July 24th was my birthday and it was the best weather day so far this July! Cool, at times cold, and no humidity! We went to a book sale at a local Episcopal church and scored on a lot of great classics. I had an internet friend visit from Alabama, which was super awesome! I showed her this tiny little town and stopped for a bite to eat at my friend’s restaurant. Then to finish the day, Anna begged me to let her take a kitten to the local pet show, which her best friend was going to along with Flurry the goldfish. I gave in and we went. Peaches ended up winning 1st place in unusual markings, 2nd place for prettiest eyes, and 3rd place for fluffiest-though technically he should have won 1st place for that. haha =P It was a great day.
Peaches, the winner

Good reading
