The Market Wall

this hand painted wall is tucked into
this little nook by the market 
in the city.
i stumbled upon it one day and was immediately 
the texture.
the old paint.
but what drew me the most was the people.
and what was the artist trying to show those that
stumbled upon it.

for me..
the sadness in the faces tugged at my soul.
i saw 'me' some days
in her face.
heartache, loss, pain, suffering.
yet i find her strikingly beautiful.

a woman's heart and soul is a vessel into 
her being.

i plan on venturing back to this market wall soon.
to spend more time on capturing the beauty of it.

A Hunt Of Our Own

so my bff photog and i came up with a plan in
order to get our creative juices flowing again
AND get our cameras out of hiding.
6 prompts in a week.
3 mine.
3 hers.
i have to admit i was excited over 
the idea.
but Wednesday came and i was like 'ugh'.

so despite of this uncanny weather,
i pushed through.
shot all 6 right inside my
warm, dry home.
here's to sticking with this Thelma..
so we can get outta
this funk we are in!

blue, vintage, fiber
crazy, happy, love

love these antique candle holders i found

i was SO blessed to receive my Great Nana's
vintage knitting needles

think i am a little addicted to fiber!
colors, textures, the feel..oh my!

yeah, crazy about fine yarns!

part of a print my boys got me as a gift..
full of words to live by!

this is my favorite picture of 'me' as
a little girl. my Daddy took it.
on the left, my Mama as a little girl.

there's my first 'Thelma & Louise'
hunt captures!

all things that speak to me and hold close to my heart!

i will blog.
i will blog.
i will blog.

have a blessed week!
