Leipers Fork…Where?

Leiper’s Fork made a perfect place to hang out for my nephew’s wedding in late October! I rented an Air B&B with my sister and her family and it was really a hit!
I hardly ever stay in hotels anymore, preferring instead to be close to real life in
places I visit. I think my brother in law was impressed and we all enjoyed Leiper’s Fork and being able to just walk down the street to check out the fun places to eat and shop!

Oh yeah, Leiper’s Fork, TN. just south of Nashville and Franklin…

My favorite view of Dallas, with the newly renovated Statler Hilton, circa 1957, off to the left… so happy it was not demolished! Hope you are having a wonderful December!

Big Bend on the Edge of Nowhere!

 

My son and Daughter in Law asked me to go on their Spring Break trip and what an adventure we had! We stayed 2 nights in this Air B&B at the end of a dead end road which made us feel like we were on the moon in the middle of nowhere!

The owner and her twin sister built this “off the grid” home and as you can
see it blends in with the scenery! It only took 45 minutes in an old 4 wheel drive
pick up to get out of Terlingua, for the 10 mile drive! But I was more than
honored for someone to notice a shot I made while the full moon appeared.

If it’s not White, It’s Christmas Red…

While in Round Top and Johnson City a few months ago, I also noticed a lot of
good ole Red Buildings! From Historic to dilapidated to Pristine, Texas has it all!

A Bribe is worth a Thousand Photos…

I wanted to spend the night with my Kiki, and this is what we did in about 12
hours! We started our morning with scrambled eggs and an English muffin eating
at the kitchen counter. Then after dressing in my vintage looking dress Kiki found
at Salvation Army for a photo shoot ($3.00), we headed out the front door to
visit the kitty’s across the street. That’s bribe No. 1.

No. 2-Pez for sitting in pinkish chair
No. 3-Licking the brownie batter
No. 4-Putting on Makeup for the shoots
No. 5-Getting to see Kiki’s vintage Barbie Dolls and playing with them
It took all of this to get all of these photos, narrowed down from about 745 images!

White on White on White…

Thinking about what to blog from my recent trip to Johnson City and Round Top, I realized that so many of the cottages and little historic towns are actually full of vintage white buildings! When I went through all the photos I shot, I notice the theme and thus my title! Round Top and the surrounding areas are really like nothing else around. Driving into Round Top always makes me feel like I’ve just driven into New England.

Bayberry Antiques open during Markets

One of the highlights of my trip to Johnson City and the Karen Divine workshop at
the A. Smith gallery was getting to visit one new place in Round Top,
VRT or The Vintage Round Top
After driving up and seeing one of the owners on the porch, I decided to stop
and check it out!

Well, sweet Smoot, invited me in even though during Antique Week, they actually stay in the cottage themselves. So I was really intruding into their home but he was nice enough to have a brief chat with me and let me snap a few photos of their fabulous interior.

Another special treat was when my Air B & B host mentioned that she could get me in
to see the historic Catholic Church I had mentioned being so beautiful up on the hill.
So we met the morning I left for home and I got to take photos of the beautiful, ornate
alter and statues. I certainly covered a lot of ground in about 5 days but it was a ton of fun!

Cynthia’s cottage in Country Living!

Last September, my friend and fabulous set designer, merchandiser extraordinaire
Vince Maggio, let me know he had staged a fabulous cottage in McKinney. I asked
if he would like photos taken of his work and he and Cynthia said “Yes”. As it
turned out, Cynthia was going to submit photos of her home to several publications
hoping to get them published, so perfect timing! Well, I stepped in the front door
and was in Heaven! Of course this home needs to be published! Needless to say,
Country Living has it in the current July/August issue so pick up a copy! In 2017
it will also be featured in a book, City Farmhouse. I had the pleasure of sitting in
onboth of the photo shoots, so you can image this little photographer
was especially happy!
