Old Try

Fatwood from L.L.Bean


I'm a sucker for a story.

Yesterday we drove up to Freeport, ME, to spend a day out of the house. There wasn't any snow up that way yet, which was surprising, but the clouds were threatening and it felt a lot colder than the 28° the mercury claimed it was.

Of course, you can't go to Freeport without going in LLBean. It isn't illegal to do so, but I would say it's frowned upon. But this isn't really...

Ruffled Welcome

This wreath has been pinned on my Pinterest board for quite some time, so I was excited to actually make it.  I originally found it on Design*Sponge and thought it looked really cute.

Old Time Fiddlers.


A few month's back I saw Steve Martin and the Steel Canyon Rangers in concert in Manhattan. I was in town for an edit, and a Southern photographer friend was able to grab a couple of last minute tickets and we stood in the back and my heart was overwhelmed with nostalgia for my old home and during a song called The Great Remember I thought I just might cry.



In the fall, the Airstreamers come into...

Southbound.


Well, I'm Southbound. Lord, I'm coming home to you. -Duane Allman

All packed up and getting on a plane. To those we'll see in Raleigh, Wilmington, Memphis and Oxford, we can't wait to see you. To those we'll miss – next time.

It's on to no exercise, fried goodness, pork of all manners and jean shorts. Yes. Jean shorts.
