and it takes WAAYYYY better photos than my other cameras!!
(don't mind the half dead herbs please-even they show up better with this camera!)
I would love to find one of those books FOR DUMMIES about it. lol
Our niece went to school for photography and she said right off that she got in the habit of wrapping the strap around her wrist-She spent about $5,000!! for her camera- so I would have hired it a body guard as well! lol

and it was AMAZING!
I cannot believe how thrilled I am!
These gals were amazing!
This is Kim from http://www.tatteredandtorn.ca/
She is the stylist that works with the photographer.
She changed things up and styled in ways I would not have thought to,
which was GREAT!
She is just fantabulous!
And isn't she the cutest!?
(pecan butter tarts may disappear with her around!) ;)
I could not believe the difference between
Robin's and my own.
Made mine look like DIRT!
no really! I was astonished!
You can see some of Robin's work here http://robinstubbert.com/
I NEED A NEW CAMERA!!
it takes a lot of work & concentration
on the photographers part.
These gals work long days trying to make our homes look amazing!
Tomorrow is round 2!

because we are hoping to sell our home, Country Sampler does not want to feature our house at this time. BECAUSE it would be ONE YEAR from the actual SHOOT until the FEATURE and the magazine doesn't feel comfortable selling a story that may no longer be true when published or at least that's what I understand from the information I was given.
But then the GOOD NEWS!....... I was shaking! I thought someone please pinch me!
and by very soon I mean we're doing a shoot in.......... 3 weeks!!!!! for an issue on newsstands THIS MAY!!
I was overwhelmed with all that info all at once!
So I spent some time browsing through some magazines for inspiration.......... and therapy!
(the wine was therapy too! heehee)
I hope when we do the actual SHOOT that the kitties will cooperate!
I am in need of ideas of how to infuse more color without compromising the SIMPLE look.
I always love greens & blues! wish I had more actual blue or green pieces like side tables and what not-maybe I will search for some.
For the next while I will be in search of great ideas & inspiration! Please don't hesitate to share your thoughts and ideas! Until next time.........

|It's a little rough on the outside but some people really like that|
|Wish I knew what exactly it had been used for!|
|It's just sitting here for now.....|
|I did a pantry make over!|
Freshened it up with a coat (or two...or three) of paint!
|It is SO much brighter & looks cleaner!|
|Here is the before & after shots. It was dark & gloomy and dingy looking before!|
|We've been eating a LOT of eggs lately! Pretty soon it will be time to add a few chickens to the freezer though!|
|My facebook page reached 7,000 LIKES! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!|
Hope you all are doing wonderful!
