I am very excited to be featured in the current issue of Artful Blogging.  I would be more excited if I had a copy in my hands so I could actually see it.  I hope everyone else out there is enjoying their copy.  I'll wait patiently for mine!!!

Signs...

The dictionary defines the word sign as a notice, bearing a name, direction, warning, or advertisement, that is displayed or posted for public view: a traffic sign; a store sign.

Do you ever pay attention to all the signs around you?  There are some interesting ones out there!  If you are curious about the History of Signs visit here for some great information on the subject!  I posted a sign image yesterday and decided to post some more from my stash today.  Enjoy!!

Contentment...

Contentment

Within the borders of a run-down garden I saw this seemingly unusual pairing and thought how perfect it appeared, an old sink and a potted flower. And I thought of contentment...

Contentment is the state of being contented; satisfied; having ease of mind.  Ease of mind is a beautiful thing.  The real challenge is to be content in plenty or in want.  I hope you are content today and that your mind is at ease.  Take a deep breath and slow down just a bit.  Walk outside, either onto your porch or take a short walk.  Breath.  Look.  Listen.  There...it is all around you!

"To feel that one has a place in life solves half the problems of contentment." ~George E. Woodberry

Have a blessed day!

Just For Silly Fun...

Surfing the web is a time killer. It is great when it is 1:00AM and you can't sleep!  I'm sure this is nothing new,  but I found this place to make slide shows...I know there are a million out there, but this one had an old movie feature that I thought was fun.  So, I threw together some photos to make a silly little film called On the Farm.  Enjoy!!

Life It Photos ~ In The Pasture

In_the_pasture
Loved these beauties!!  Part of Life It Photos group.

Whew!  Finally went to the doctor yesterday to get some medication for this "creeping-crud" that I have had for a week now!  I was finally able to sleep prostrate rather than propped up straight against the headboard.  Who can sleep this way? :( 

Anyway, what is new in my world...well, I have to share how cool blogging and the internet is.  I was surfing one day and ran across the blog Rusted Rhubarb where I saw a picture of a river, which is not  from where I live.  I assumed that the post was made by someone visiting our area and I sent her a comment.  Much to my surprise I discovered that Michelle lives less than 2 miles from me!  We e-mailed a bit and then finally had coffee so we could meet face-to-face.  Michelle is fun and talented and I am so excited to have an art friend down the street!  Be sure to check out her hand-sewn aprons on her blog!  I have seen them up close and they are beautiful! 

Cheers,

More Details...

I have received many questions about my video With Every Hope.  Here are some more details...

•All pictures were taken in Valdosta, Georgia around the downtown area.  I covered about 50 miles while taking these pictures.

•I also took all of these images from inside my car either out the side windows or even the windshield.  No joke!

•It was a cloudy dreary day and I did not re-touch the photos.  They are as they were taken.

•The music is a song called Cure For the Pain by Jon Foreman.
