Cherished Rust

I love family heirlooms.  I love rust.  I've had these very old iron shoe lasts for years.  They were my grandfather's and probably his father's, both owning shoe repair shops back in the day.  I can still remember the smell of leather and dye.

I've painted them several times in the past.  Never knowing what to really do with them, they've spent many years on the porch.  Any ideas?



I have seen a picture of a double one being used as a bookend.

Peaceful Walk on a SONday Afternoon

Everything is beautiful, in it's own way.  I love rust, I love wood. I love nature.























Don't you see God in everything?  I do.

God's Beauty

I have started taking my camera to work most days.  My lunch hour serves as the perfect time to play around a little and relax with nature.  A great destresser.  That's not a real word is it?
  


















The day I had lunch looking out over the water, I also listened to a CD of my pastor preaching.  I have to commute so I buy the CDs of our services and love to listen to them over and over again.  I actually am very blessed to be able to take a long lunch hour and actually enjoy it.  Some days I do have errands but that's ok too.  I am blessed.

Lovely Peaceful Spring 2016

Spring has arrived and we are spending more and more time outdoors.  Days haven't reached the 80s yet and most days have a breeze.  It's beautiful with cool nights.

Rufus Jack has been enjoying a break in Builder Man's work load, his daddy has been home with him a few days a week instead of him sending his days staring at the door waiting for us to get home.  I still work full time in the city five days a week, so weekends are precious.

Getting To Know My Nikon


Matthew asked Brittany to marry him.  Isn't her ring beautiful?  


I'll be taking their engagement pictures one weekend coming up soon so I need to speed up getting to know my camera.  The problem is finding the time to do so.  













Our precious Rufus Jack and his dirty face.  I think he knew I wanted him to look good for pictures this morning and he decided to get into something on purpose for a little extra attention.
