{ angela herzog photography }

A couple of weeks ago we went to visit our family in the Knoxville, TN area and we were lucky enough to be able to schedule a photo shoot with Angela of Angela Herzog Photography to photograph Aidan and Olivia in some of my new designs. Angela was great to work with. She was so patient with the kids and really did a awesome job making the kids feel comfortable, which is a feat in and of itself, especially with a two- and three-year old in an unfamiliar environment at 8:30 am. We met her at the University of Tennessee Gardens, which is a beautiful little park right on campus. It was such a gorgeous setting, and the photos I've seen from our shoot are gorgeous as well. Here are some of my little models.

{ p.s. } if you look closely at Aidan's hands, you'll see he's making the rock and roll sign, which is his new little rockstar. :)

Angela also took the photograph of me, which you can see up at the top of the blog. I { really } don't like to have my picture taken, and again, Angela made me feel totally at ease. If you're in the Knoxville area, you need to check out Angela's work and schedule a photography session for yourself. You won't be sorry!

Thank you again, Angela! I'm so excited to be working with you!

{ snailey }

My husband teases me that I'm a little like Dr. Doolittle, because I love animals, and they usually feel the same way about me. It's been this way since I was a little kid, and I think Aidan and Olivia are following in my footsteps. Case in point: a couple of weeks ago we were out in the yard, working in the garden, and I found a snail. Honestly, I'm usually a little freaked out about bugs, but I've always thought that snails were pretty cool. I picked it up and showed it to Aidan and Olivia, who immediately wanted to keep it.

We brought the snail into the kitchen in a little plastic container so the kids could get a better look at it. They were in awe.

After a little internet searching on keeping a snail as a pet, Jeff and I made the newly-named Snailey a home out of a fishbowl and a little orange tulle. Gotta love when craft items can be used for something entirely different, right?

Snailey is thriving in his new home, and he has even been joined by two other snail friends. The kids really love watching them and are eager to help take care of them. Although I do have to remind them that we can't hold them all the time...

{ some vintage quilt inspiration }

This past weekend we went to the South Lebanon School House Quilt Show. South Lebanon is about five miles from our house, and is a really old town on Little Miami River. The quilt show was much bigger than I had expected, and there were some really beautiful things on display. There were a lot of vintage quilts, which are my weakness, and here are some of my favorites.

Aren't they just great? They are the work of the super talented Stacy Fetterman of Stacy Fetterman Photography.

In the meantime, here are some of her recent photos of my work that she graciously shot for me. Thank you so very much, Stacy. They are just gorgeous!
