“Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like?"...
"It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine...”
― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

Scenes from a beautiful Sunday afternoon... this series of fine art photographs is available in various sizes on my website here or in my Etsy shop.

P.S. For those of you stopping by from the amazing Emily Henderson's site, welcome! I am thrilled to introduce you to my photography.
You can find and purchase my photographs on my fine art website, and in my etsy shop. I also share new photographs and events on facebook and twitter.

We are jumping right into this weekend. No looking back... With hopes for sleeping in and a little spring cleaning.
I did get a head start on organizing my studio, and have added lots of discounted prints to the outlet
Have a great weekend friends!

Thoughts for a Wednesday, even though I have been thinking it was Tuesday all day....
All prints can be found here and here.

Sometimes you have to make your own sunshine... and this week was certainly a time for that (as it has been raining for the last 5 days with no end in sight.)
Making me happy today are:
 * This movie preview.
 * This bike.
 * Our newly rearranged living room.
 * Our version of this recipe (with shredded cabbage and leftover pork tenderloin added.)
 * This sweet smelling lotion that I have been using my whole life.
 * These new spring prints in my shop.
Have a lovely weekend friends!

Tote Bags

If you take a peek into any one of my closets, it will become obvious that I love a good tote bag. And, as it turns out, I also love making them for my Society6 shop. (Which has free worldwide shipping through Sunday if you click here.)
P.S. I am adding new images as fast as I can... let me know if you'd like to request your favorite.

There was a lot of talk about a grand road trip to much warmer harbors, but in the end we found ourselves heading back to the beach town where I was born, which seems like the most appropriate place of all to spend a birthday. (Plus, it was warm enough to dip our toes into Lake Michigan for a whole 10 minutes before we froze.) Happy weekend to you all!
