We went and visited Cree's aunts in Elba Idaho...I love visiting their homes and walking through their beautiful old homes. Each is filled with little treasures. A lovely thing about Cree's family is that they are all so close and you can tell they all love each other very much. Family of any kind (distant or not) is very important. Now a days I think this is rare.

Ps. It is getting cold again here. We had a nice little warm blip, but that seems long gone. It's always hard for me to be productive when it's cold and dark when I get home from work. I tried my hardest to stay focused last night, but all I wanted to do was curl up in my PJ's, read a book and fall asleep at 8. Silly me.

  2. How funny-I feel like I am looking at pictures of my grandparents house. They have those same glass doorknobs and I love them!

    May I ask what camera/lens you use? Your pics are always so fantastic!

  3. Lovely details. I adore the the one of the vintage amp. I have vintage electronics and I need to replace them with something new for better sound, but I hate to because they are so pretty.

    I grew up with those same glass doorknobs in my home. Cree's family's home has a warm and attractive aesthetic.
    I want to curl up and go to bed at 8 PM as well and I do not get up nearly as early as you. I love the long summer days best.

  7. Of course you may ask...I use an old Canon EOS Rebel XT....I got it used way back in highschool, so it's pretty old...the battery doesn't last more than twenty minutes. :) That said, it's still a good camera. As for the lense, I usually use my fixed 50mm lense.
