from gypsy roots hubby's music project...
inspired by the fast strum of the gypsy guitar
a jazz of its own kind like that played by Django Reinhardt and others
an unofficial arrangement of music minded friends playing for fun and entertainment
offering the tunes during the fashion show we have coming up in April
you can visit here to find out a little more about the who, what and where

you may only barely recognize this picture from this past post
I had a little fun transforming it (i'm certainly gonna miss the simplicity of picnik)
my favorite part is the hardly noticeable fern growing from the bottom
can you find it?

warm and inviting

until today I haven't taken much time lately to browse some of the beautiful inspiring collections of photographs I sometimes frequent. here is one of my favorite curations. a clear, bright, natural and telling arrangement. each with its own rustic influence. warmly inviting captures of some of the simplest things.

wilderness home

"Since ink smears when it gets wet, I used pencils on a yellow legal pad propped against the black Mercury outboard motor.  Whenever it was time for me to crank the motor and run us to the next line or net, I'd sit on the pad to keep it from blowing away." - Gwen Roland

I have mentioned this book before some time ago but have only just began to flip its pages. a setting that is basically our own backyard. only minutes will get you to the banks of the Atchafalaya which truly make her writings more intriguing and subtly familiar. A late Saturday morning, there is a chill in the air but my coffee, handmade afghan and this intimately told story keep me warm and cozy.

you can find a copy here
here you will find pictures of their wilderness home, a simple life among the swamp.

feelin' good

today was another one of those days. getting something done thats been on my mind for awhile.
my hubby took the kiddos to spend some time with his Granny and I accomplished a much needed redecoration of the Mercantile to get it ready for our first Bazaar of 2012.  another thing marked off my to-do list. a productive few hours on a quiet Sunday....ahhh!


...a few things to think on...
all found here
I find truth in all of these
how about you?
