Settee Redo

Just look at this darling little settee (did I spell that right?) Look how cute it is. It just wasn't matching the all black and white room my client had it sitting in. So what's the solution?

Reupholster it,

then add some contrasting pillows.

This little (settee?) went from cute to sophisticated in about a day.

A Virtuous Woman

I was reading my bible this morning and came upon this scripture. It reminded me of my mom. She really is a virtuous woman and I'm so blessed to have a mom like mine. Lord help me to be a virtuous wife and mother.

Proverbs 31: 10-31

10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

14 She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.

15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.

20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.

23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.

24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

25 Strength and honor are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

30 Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.

31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

Happy Fall Ya'll

It's here, it's here, it's here. My favorite time of year. This is a look back at some pictures I took in fall of 2008.
I can feel the crispness of fall in the air.

Bushes are burning.

Harvest is near
Mums are in full bloom
Children are playing

Trees are turning
Allergy season is over for me!!!!
Fall is my favorite time of year to take photos. There is such a beautiful backdrop in almost every picture I snap, which makes it even more rewarding for an amateur like myself. Does anyone else love fall this much?
