Down by the O U T L E T

It's been hot here in upstate New York. Probably like most of the east coast. Yesterday and today we drove into town and walked by the outlet. The boy scouts and the town have worked hard to make a beautiful 1.5 mile trail by the water. There are just gobs of wild roses (New York's state flower) and flaxs. It smells like heaven and looks pert near close.

We put wild roses in her hair :o)

Looking downt the outlet from the launch where we waded

I wasn't fast enough to get a shot of the big blue heron that lives here. I named him Gus.
Someone painted that rock to look like an alligator head ??? Kinda fun, right?

flax everywhere!!!

the Leigh High valley rail road bridge. out of service now. there was a train wreck there in 1911 where the train derailed and came right over the edge into the outlet.

Make Mine Cross Country

We are ever changing people. My own shifting ideals sometimes surprise me! All my life I've wanted to see Europe. Ireland, Italy, England. I've even been interested in seeing Africa, China, Greece. Basically, everywhere on the other side of an ocean. For some reason, unknown to me, I suddenly just want to see AMERICA. The Grand Canyon, Mount Rushmore, Washington DC, Yellowstone National Park. Wide open ranges in California, the mountains in the mid west, the mansions in the south. But most of all... THE REDWOOD FOREST!!!! Oh, I'd love to see that in person, wow. I live in New York and I haven't even seen NY City.

I've decided the best way so visit some of these amazing places would be... with a camper. I have become enamored with the Teardrop Camper. LOVE LOVE. What more does a person need? Okay, you don't really have to answer that, ahahah!
And they can be perfectly adorable, and sweet, and cozy inside!

I've opened a new etsy shop! I needed a background for product shots and we don't have a bare wall in the house sooo....

                        I took the box spring off my bed and pinned pretty fabric to it. Voila! A wall :o)
                                          Tess didn't mind the lack of box spring at all.
                                  Look! We have lilacs. They are my favorite scent ever!
          The amazing iron I bought for $2 at my favorite barn sale. It's from the 1950's and works better then any iron I've had. Actually, it can be too hot-- never turn one of these up all the way :oP !

Do any of you have any photography tips for product shots? I hope you all are having a fantastic week thus far! Take care my friends :o)
