creative nature


Miss Kitty's curious nature never lets me down.  
While thinking of different ways to portray this weeks theme, I opened the window.
I love playing with natural light and Miss Kitty peeking out is such a fun little bonus to me.

♥ ♥ ♥

I'm always looking for new ways to challenge and inspire myself.

So I've joined up with the Sunday Creative (you can find the link to the left side of my blog)
created by the truly inspiring,

Madeline Bea and her blog, Life Set to Words.

She chooses a weekly prompt and you can interpret it however you wish.

You then link up and see everyone's vision.

I'll be participating once a week and I'll post my interpretation here.

"To think creatively, we must be able to look afresh at what we normally take for granted."

south congress ave

Welcome to South Congress Ave.

I had the pleasure of accompanying one of my artsy friends on a little walk about last Friday.

Trying to capture some of the "weirdness" Austin likes to pride itself on.

Each visit is always unique.

There are some great places to stop for a bite to eat as well.

Don't forget to say HI to Nik...  he likes fries (or so the sign says)

Plenty of off the wall shops, local art venues and vintage delights just waiting to be discovered.

♥ ♥ ♥

The artsy partner in crime...

♥ ♥ ♥

Hope you enjoyed the tour!

Lots of odds and ends in the works.
I'm updating the living room to a more summery vibe and I'll have pictures soon...

Also, I plan to do a little painting of furniture as well...

Oh and a certain sparkly movie comes out tonight at midnight...

backroads & bliss

Friday Pretties this week are full of previously uncharted roads for me.

I've always had the desire to take back roads.

The ones where it's ok if you get lost.

Because what you find is oh so worth it.  

Getting from point A to point B is better taken slowly.

So cheers to road trips with opportunities at enjoying life no matter where the road my lead you.

Please visit Joyce for more inspiration and eye candy.

refreshed state of mind

Little bits of my world today...

Watermelon in the summertime.

Sun-kissed laundry...

makes chores just a little more sweet. 

♥ ♥ ♥

Thanks for all of your sweet wishes on my anniversary.

Sorry I've been absent from blog world this week.

I plan on visiting everyone tomorrow.  :)

Hope you have a lovely Wednesday!

801 Rutherford PL

Forgive me Father for I have sinned.

It's been way too long since my last house tour post.

Five Hail Mary's and recite after me,

I heart 1920's cottages.

♥ ♥ 

Meet 801 Rutherford PL.

AKA:  Makin' me smitten

Do old fashioned doors, original floors and windows make you drool?

What about tons of natural light, original trim, and archways?

Ok, what about...

butcher block counters and plenty of cabinet space?

(oh and I do see a dishwasher peeking out in the corner!!)

Would a sitting room off your master help ease the pain of only having one bathroom?

Still feeling the natural light, original windows and floors...

What about a mini park in your backyard?

Are you feeling the love?

If not, there is a virtual tour if you need more penance.

Please Father, forgive me for I have sinned, again.

I'm lusting after this home.

hello summer

cold drinks.

lakeside views.

blue skies & puffy clouds.

colorful umbrellas.

taking the day off to enjoy summertime.

{I had to throw that last shot in there because Josh is so hard to take pictures of}

Today is our seventh anniversary.

I'm definitely feeling lucky. 

Happy first day of summer!
