The Scoop

I love my dogs. This little guy makes me feel like a rock star! He and his sissy ( I call her) are always there watching like I am the most interesting person in the world. If you are a dog lover like me you understand that I spend a lot of time making sure I don’t let them down. We take lots of walks, we nap in a pile on the sofa, we share treats and the fun never ends!

It started raining this week after a few weeks of too perfect to be true spring weather. I realized how bad my lighting is again for picture taking. So I took the plunge and ordered a photography lighting kit. I can’t wait for it to arrive. It has it all even back drops in three colors. Now I can finish setting up my photography studio. We have a finished basement that I have all ready for photo taking except for the lighting. Its big empty, quiet with light colored walls. There are two large windows as in it only a partial underground basement but the lighting I ordered should improve things a lot!

In a couple more weeks we will be heading to the mountains for the summer! I am excited to be in the fresh country mountain air again where I can go mushroom hunting, huckleberry picking and take long quiet hikes and trail runs. I will make summer jams and just enjoy the quiet life for a few months.

Can you believe I got three new posts on the blog this week! I don’t know how it happened but I had a few fun looks to share so there you go! I love spring and summer fashion so much.

My Look

This is all old but good. My top is so fun with the off shoulders but the tie around the neck keeps it secure. Next are my old DIY hem jeans. I think these were the first pair I took the scissors to. After one pair there was no holding me back and I found no jeans were safe if they were too long. These are a step hem. I added my Sam Edelman mules which have been a favorite for several years and carried my LV Never Full GM bag. For jewelry I wore the emerald necklace my husband surprised me with on our anniversary last year. I’m still sportin’ my hair pins because . . . well because I like them!

Above you get a peek of my dinning room that I painted this spring. I love how it turned out. Below is my formal living room that has a ceiling two stories high so I will have to hire to have it painted. But I have it decorated just the way I want. It’s the most serene room. We’ve had the armoire for so many years. It is an antique from England. The room is filled with my favorite things. Even the silly brass duck.
