Shroom Climbing was taken a few autumns ago on the Kancamagus Highway in New Hampshire. Kancamagus meaning The Fearless One. It is a 26.5 mile long scenic byway along Route 112 which runs through the White Mountains. Along the stunningly scenic route there are no gas stations, no eateries just pure nature. Scattered along the two lane byway are parking areas, view points, hiking trails, rivers and gorges. On one of our many hikes through the White Mountain I came across this gorgeous growth of chocolate brown mushrooms at the foot of a mint green mossy tree. I was mesmerized.

D Turns Four!

In June our little D turned four.. 4! We can hardly believe it.. I was really excited to plan his fourth birthday.. we didn't have parties for the last two and this was the first year he actually understood the concept of a birthday.. his birthday. A few months before the big event I presented him with theme ideas courtesy of my Pinterest Birthday Board. His pick.. an Alphabet Themed Party. I was not particularly surprised... the kid has 26 imaginary friends.. can you guess who?

And so the planning began.. The Invite.


The Party Favors: i found these adorable personalized alphabet coloring books.. tied them with a string, attached a bag of candy and finished them off with a balloon at the end. [lessons learned] don't buy personalized favors, even after RSVPing people decide to not show up and now I have coloring books with other kids names on them. Balloon, long string and a super windy day equal a jumbled mess of favors we had to untangle and untie!


The Plan was an alphabet scavenger hunt.. I bought a few sets of foam letters and set up a sand station, ball pit and water station and hid the alphabets.


The Cake, I bought a chocolate cake with white butter cream frosting from Wegmans and to all those who say nay to a grocery store bought cake.. I was one of you and then I discovered Wegmans and their not too sickly sweet perfect cakes. And I bought a set of sugar alphabets so D could do the decorating himself.


The Party.

The End:

Knock on wood.. but I have had another very good week. 


Violet Queen has always been a favorite and is one of my top sellers.. it is on it's way to California right now.


I love it when someone orders an enlargement of one of my photographs. I just don't think a 4x6 does justice to it.. but when framed above you mantel as a 30x45.. now that is going to be a statement piece.. a conversation starter.. The Weaver is lucky.. he get's to be one of those pieces. 


The Mustard Door was bought as a present. Art is a very personal thing and when someone choose one of my pieces to gift to someone I am honored. I hope he or she loves it.

Pantry Makeover

We are back from our weekend getaway with our friends, it was a beautiful weekend even though it was surprisingly chilly.. Felt less like summer and more like autumn.. autumn? More about that in another post. 

Today I'm going to show you our pantry makeover..


 It started out dingy with sagging shelves and an overall mess..


We started by removing all the existing shelves..

sanding and priming..


and then painted yellow :)


white wire shelves, drawers and a rack on the side.. Home Depot can cut the shelves to any size you like.


I can not believe the amount of space I have! I love the addition of drawers..


and the rack is my favorite.
