What Goes Around Comes Around

My daughter and I have had great fun today...
With her new love for vintage and music, she has begged for her Dad and I to pull out our old record albums.  The last few days, we have enjoyed looking for the albums we had long put away and telling stories about our youth.
We also made a trip last night to Goodwill.  There we discovered some great album covers, including "Love Means Never Having to Say You're Sorry".

Today, we have played with hanging these albums on her bedroom wall.

 The Donny Osmond album was the only one of mine she had to hang.
I wouldn't say my family was poor, we just did not have a lot of money to spend on extra things.
This album was given to me by my "rich" brother for Christmas one year.  I treasured this album.  There is no telling how many times I listened to it.

Most of the albums belonged to my husband. 
He had wonderful taste in music...
Charlie Daniels, Electric Light Orchestra...

It is just so funny to me how excited my daughter became over these albums. 
She loves all kinds of music.
I love that she appreciates the value of truly good music!!!

Through the Eyes of a Camera

The Pioneer Woman carries her camera with her wherever she goes,
capturing shots of her everyday life. 
I decided to carry along my camera today as I walked to the mailbox. 
The wind was slightly blowing, and with the temperatures in the low 40's,
it was a cold, blustery walk. 
Here is what I saw:



There is soooo much work to be done
 here in the Big Woods. 
It was nice to look at a few things through my camera's lens to see the beauty.
Spring is definitely coming...but a few flurries were flying as I walked.

Bella Rustica

My daughter has a new interest in anything Vintage.  Last fall, we learned about a perfectly wonderful Vintage Fair called Bella Rustica. 
It was held in an old barn on the Milky Way Farm in Giles County Tennessee.
If you ever have the opportunity to go, I would highly recommend it.  The atmosphere of the fair was wonderful, including the live country music.
My daughter purchased this really cute bracelet at the fair.
I expect to have more Vintage items to share in the near future.
