Under the radar

I am always attracted to and struck by the beauty of object with great patina, markings of time and people passing by. Or is it simply the patina itself I love so much? Whatever it is, I always find these surfaces (like the one above, which is a the back of a second hand dresser),…

Not one but two!

Travelling down the weekend road trip road… day dreaming and cat napping intermittently… not one but two old beetle cars grabbed my attention. Felt like a special moment, a rarity. Was I supposed to make a wish?

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow… again?

So, for the past few weeks, my posts have been about springtime and good weather šŸ™‚ And now, we’re having a snowstorm….. sigh. So, since we’re back at what feels like square one, I’ve decided to share a photo taken during a recent sugar shack outing šŸ™‚ Here’s hoping it’s my last post for the…
