American Made Awards – Finalist

Happy people! It’s been awhile…. Good news! I’ve been chosen as a Style Finalist by Martha Stewart for the American Made Awards! Well chances are slim that she looked at my work BUT at least her judges see my potential. But of course, there is more...

Samuel

I would try to paint a picture of the last 10 months of my life. But as you can see from the photos none of it really matters. Only the end result is shining bright. I’d like to introduce my miracle child, purposely named Samuel. Move over leather! I’m...
Before It’s Over

Before It’s Over

Summer is officially ovvver this weekend. And for the first time in a long time, I can honestly say I milked it for all it was worth. I’m not a home body, but I will leave these hips in this seat for a long while. True, I said that before I made a quick trip to...

Out West

Out West

Long absences from the blog mean several things. And all chalk up to work. Fun work. Funny, I take tons of photos when I can, annoying many, but rarely take the time to share a few. Although instagram and I have grown much closer. We headed west last week to celebrate...
Blizzard, what?

Blizzard, what?

Emergency Alert! Blizzard Warning. Huh? What? Either my iPhone was hacked and blurting out sounds -bypassing my vibrate setting- or I was in for some crazy weather. Crazy for a Southern girl; keeping it in perspective for you. Naively, I reasoned I was the only lucky...
I Left With Neoprene

I Left With Neoprene

No staged – but not staged – outfit shots. Removing my coat was not an option. Plus my getup consisted of black leather pants and a vintage blouse (see last shot). Good for me but boring for photos; after a while you’d begin to think I never...
