Went out to the farm today for a breather. I saw my first horned worm - i think that is what it was! I was not so thrilled - it was as thick as a sausage and slimy green. Just when we got the worm out of the garden we found a whole family of baby mice and a very cool looking frog. i also love the colors and textures of the plants in her garden.

I had a wonderful time this morning working with these BFF's. Both girls brought a lot of energy to the session as well as creativity and their own personal style. I love that these two have shared so much in the way of friendship but have completely developed their own rich personal style. One wears Converse the other wears ballet shoes.

Crystal and i went down to the Gem Theatre in Detroit where the Annual Wilde Awards were being held. Crystal was nominated for Best Actress in an L.G.B.T. themed play, in her case it was her part in The Little Dog Laughed. She did not take the award her co-star won but i couldn't be more proud of her for being nominated.
(The Wilde Awards are the Michigan equivalent of the Tony Awards.)

The funny thing about getting flowers is that i really don't need an expensive arrangement, keep your money nor do you need to acknowledge every occasion with a bouquet of flowers, but it you want to give me flower for no reason at all make them Crazy Daisy's - these bright colored beauties just have a way of putting a smile on your face don't they? Thanks love.

And what Lola wants right now is to get off of that leash so she can lick and nibble me to death. My friend Stephanie was doggie sitting her grand doggie and brought her over for a short visit.
Well it seems that so many things happened today that i have more than one post
Yep that's what i thought too when i saw it, not sure if he was running out of gas and therefore couldn't finish or if he simply fell into the lifestyle of our kids and uses slang to express himself. Either way it is still pretty cool they they come to my house to extend this invitation to the Airshow.On a sad note I was just sick to my stomach to hear about the wing walker who fell to his death while performing and entertaining the crowd.

I just love Ikea, with it's cute little room displays and it's quirky little gadgets and the miles and miles of things to touch and buy. Crystal and i took the road trip out to buy her a bed frame which unfortunately was not in stock. Oh well guess we will have to make another trip.

Had the pleasure of visiting the Meadowbrook Mansion where my sister in law works. Can't wait to take a tour and see the whole thing. I was only able to take a couple exterior shots. I love looking through the door at what can only be an enchanted garden.

Had an opportunity to photograph some beautiful Pewabic tile while at a session at an incredible home on Cranbrook today. The home owner actually made some of her own tile and also used some from Pewabic Tile to created this beautiful wall water fixture in her courtyard.

Today Cliff and I went out to see Lori and Steve's new houseboat. While this boat was very cool and is sure to be tons of fun i was photographically disappointed - maybe i have seen too many movies but i was really expecting a boxy cedar sided house type boat on an old barge - you know something with some character. This boat is more of a character out of a 1970's movie.

When i was younger my mom always let me grow Morning Glories so when i needed a vine type plant for my planters out front i remembered how much i loved watching them open each morning only to close by the end of the day! I also love the fact that their leaves are perfect little heart shapes!

What an Angel baby Miss D was today. We gave this photo thing another try and had some success after a small melt down yesterday. We all learned a lot and and today went much better. I had the pleasure of seeing another little angel today, Miss Ella ("Life's a journey not a destination.": Good things come in little packages!) popped in for a quick visit too, she is getting big and if am lucky we will be celebrating her 3 month milestone in photos soon.
(above photo is from when she first came in, how could this face not make your day?)

Let me start by saying that i do not like bugs, but when i saw this Praying Mantis this morning i had to photograph it. The first several shots were on the ground and because of it's unusual color it blended in with the mulch so i looked around for another angle and then it started to climb one of my solar lights. While i was shooting i noticed it bent it's front leg and with the flag in the background it looked just like it was saluting the flag.

is what came flying out of my mouth one day when i was telling some neighbor friends to stop by for a party if they saw a Pink Flamingo stuck into the ground out in front of the house. Well the faux pas caught on and i was soon calling my parties a Fink Plamingo Producitons, there by making it necessary for me to have these darling little pink flamingo table cloth weights given to me by my friend Debra.

Dallas, a darling 6 month old came by today for a visit and a photo session, he is pictured with one of my recent finds an old Tonka Earth Mover I found in the toy box. I thought it would be super cute for little boy photos and i was right! Not only was Dallas cute today, but he was super sweet and worked so hard sitting up like a big boy for his photos!
Kathy & Kenzie great visit, thanks for bringing Dallas over!
