Variety is the spice of life!

Mike's brother and a friend are refinishing several pieces of furniture for us, including this table that sat unused and rather dilapitated in my parent's backroom for some time. Look how truly beautiful it is! It has so much character and will go so nicely in an old colonial house. The next job after doing a few dressers will be my Great great grandmother's sewing machine table...I'm so excited to see how it will turn out!

These two shots are of my cousin, Sonja and her oldest daughter Madilyn. They are both so photogenic that I can't resist snapping some shots whenever we are together. Yesterday we celebrated my uncle's (Sonja's father's) birthday and enjoyed a beautiful day as well as great company.

Beautiful portraits! You captured such sweet, special moments between mother and child. The light is gorgeous...and I love both the color and b/w. Great job!

Your table is beautiful, too. I can't wait to see your home! :-)

It is so much fun filling a house with furniture that you really love. That table is a charmer. Your photos/portraits are terrific and I agree with Bridget, the last photo is my favorite too..Maybe it is the lighting, but that blk/wht really works in that photo.

You're right, that old furniture goes great in our country homes. I love the table.

Ditto on the portraits. Window light is so beautiful...
