I know, it's been awhile. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. What have you been up to? It's been busy for me these days starting with holiday hoopla, shopping and everything inbetween. I've been inspired by the outdoors this year so, with this in mind my xmas theme this year will carry hints of greens, antlers and of course some vintage. Can't have xmas without it you know right? Since, we're on the xmas topic I had a great opportunity to shoot for Gatherings Mag at HiHoHome Market in Gardiner, NY several weeks ago. A Family run shop filled with vintage treasures, new furnishings and textiles. Stop by Gatherings Magazine Blog tomorrow for the feature on HiHoHome Market. If you love Christmas you're going to enjoy this blog posting. Have a perfect week- Elizabeth
Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart. I have a lot to be thankful for this year including my family, health and kindred spirits like yourself! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.. Make every moment colorful. I'm rounding up a post after the turkey, see you all soon. Enjoy*
When, I heard that Nordic and white was the theme of Gatherings Magazines Winter 2013 issue my mind took me in so many directions. Being a lover of white and pale palettes myself, the journey of finding whites in my home was a instant match. Here are some of my images that didn't make the cut in the "White" issue. I'm once again pleased to announce that I'm a Contributor in this issue among other talented artists, photographers and bloggers. I can't wait to show you the finished issue it's beyond beautiful! Do you love whites? I confess.. I do too. Have an amazing week!
A rather chilly start to a Tuesday morning.. getting props ready to do a photo shoot in one of my fave little shops close by. Since, fall is slowly fading away I couldn't resist the temptation. Photo from my instagram feed today. Isn't that ornamental cabbage just beautiful? A last minute choice to include some natural harvest from the nursery, the pop of fuchsia says it all. I hope your Tuesday morning is going well. Brr.. it's cold outside.
I don't know where to start.. this past weekend was stellar! I made the trip to Franklin,Tenn to meet up with friend Heather Spriggs Thompson Editor In Chief of Gatherings Magazine
The City Farmhouse venue was picturesque as was the barn that held vip's and magazine editors/ contributors.This past weekend was facinating meeting and greeting Gatherings followers and also making those new connections I so longed to make.
Three days and counting of fun work, experiences, great moments, lots of vintage to see, great food and smiles to last a lifetime.

I've fallen for fall.. and even though it happens every year, it's like a very fresh and new experience each time around. Fall is my favorite season is it yours also? Here's some photos I took at Apple Bin a nearby roadside stand/farm. Thanks Pete for giving me carte blanche to your Farm it was a fun time. Enjoy your Fall!
