Have you played yet? Ginger introduced me to this fun Flickr game and so I thought I'd give it a go since it looked interesting.

How to do it:

a. Type your answer to each of the questions below into a Flickr search.
b. Using only the first page, pick an image.
c. Copy and paste each of the URLs for the images into fd's mosaic maker and make a cool mosaic to put on your blog or flickr. Simple enough!

The questions:

1. What is your first name?
2. What is your favorite food?
3. What high school did you go to?
4. What is your favorite color?
5. Who is your celebrity crush?
6. Favorite drink?
7. Dream vacation?
8. Favorite dessert?
9. What you want to be when you grow up?
10. What do you love most in life?
11. One Word to describe you.
12. Your flickr name.

This was so much fun!!! It was interesting to see the different types of pictures that came up when you typed in a word. Come on and try it for yourself. What a neat way to show off your personality. Let me know if you do this so I can see it!

Have fun!

It's Officially Summer...Time for a Contest!

Summery. Fiery. Vibrant.

I have so many fun and vibrant colored flowers around my yard. And I love photographing them. I generally have a hard time getting things to successfully grow and flower as we have very poor soil. Not to mention, the sun here in Louisiana is brutal. The "more often than not" poor conditions don't stop me from trying though. I plant something new every year in hopes that I'll find something that will succeed!


Let's kick summer off right with a contest. I took the below picture today.

What Am I?

*I am a small to medium-sized fruit-bearing tree.
*I am native to the eastern U.S, most commonly found in the South Atlantic and Gulf Region.
*My fruit ripens in late summer to early fall.
*Sometimes my nickname is Possomwood.

Do you know what I am?

The first person to answer correctly wins a $10 gift certificate to my shop!!!! Come on, you know you want to play!

Summertime in Louisiana...Time for a Cool Down

I'm not really sure where I'm going with this post. I haven't posted anything on my blog in a while and I found this picture...made me think I needed to write something!

*note: this picture is NOT Chloe...I found it online!


Ok, so it's mid June and we're already experiencing ridiculous heat and humidity. Our summers essentially go from early to middle May through middle to end of November. Our winters are extremely mild; I won't complain about winter.

What I truly miss most about home... I miss the true seasons I experienced when living in the northeast, Appalachian Mountain range. I mostly miss autumn. Everything about autumn makes me smile. I love the fabulous palate of colors ranging from burnt orange and brick red to brilliant yellow and eggplant purple that the Maple leaves change to. I miss all of the fun fall festivals. I miss walking in the woods. I miss the cool breezes.

Now snow? Sure, I miss SEEING snow draped over the limbs of trees, and covering the lawns. I miss PLAYING in snow. I miss making snowmen and snow angels. I do not, however, miss driving in the snow. I don't miss the below freezing temperatures either. I don't miss having to warm up my car 30 minutes prior to leaving in the mornings. I don't miss kicking the icicles off the bottom of my car door.

Ok. Again, not sure the origination of this post. I found that picture of the pug in the snow and it made me smile, but it also made me miss home. I haven't been home since June 2007. I'd say it's a trip long over due. I am excited that we'll be traveling to Baltimore at the end of August to witness our God Daughter's Baptism in Annapolis. Since I'm from Fairmont, West Virginia, Baltimore is only a 3 hour drive to get home. I can't wait to see my family!


In closing I'd like to invite you all over to my jewelry shop on Etsy. I'm having a "Pre-Summer" sale. Tomorrow is the last day of the sale since Saturday begins official summer.
