{Music Monday} 2 Cousins…

When I saw this video on the Handmade Romance FB page Thursday, it made me smile. So much so, that I knew that I had to pass it on.  It was a rather appropriate find as we’ve been talking a lot about cousins at our house.  Sayer is going to have a new cousin (one that will be in this state – rather than across country) sometime in February & we are all VERY excited. I’ve been going through old pictures lately & found this one of me, my little brother, & my two favorite cousins (who also have February birthdays). I really don’t think I need to tell you which one I am, do I? If you have any doubts, just look at Sayer’s picture & you will know right away. In this picture, I’m very close to the age Sayer will be when his cousin is expected to arrive- they will have about the same years apart as my brother & I do (4yrs). We all look forward to the day that Sayer will have a cousin to dance with too! Happy Music Monday!

Happy Mother’s Day!


I really love photography. My fondness for b&w photos goes way back & when I find cool vintage b&w photos, I get even more excited. Today I was digging through boxes in our basement, on a mission. I have some of my mom’s old photos- I had taken a  stash of them when my parents moved. My plan was to frame & scan them eventually but haven’t looked at them in years. Today however, I was looking for pictures of my grandma & my mom for a “generations of moms” post.  

But while I was sifting though the old album I found (which incidentally stopped before her younger brother & sister were born), I was immediately taken by some of the photos. Of course I’m nostalgic because I’m related to these people. But I’m also really struck by the photography. Compositionally & artistically, I find them interesting & beautiful. I love the stories that they tell. Originally I was just looking for “mother” photos, but the photos with my grandpa & uncle are some of my favorites & I felt compelled to share.

This post is a Mother’s Day surprise for my mom (because I know she reads this blog everyday) but I also think the photos are fun to look at even if you aren’t related to me. It’s a peek into history & the joys of everyday life- which all stem from motherhood. 

Hope all of you mommas out there have a wonderful Mother’s Day!

{Everyday Inspiration} May First…

It’s a beautiful day here in the Northwest- the sun is shining & everything is bright! What a perfect day to celebrate May Day & the birthday of someone special…

Chris hasn’t changed a bit? He has the same style & expressions evident in these awesome pictures. Boy do I wish he still had those clothes to pass down to Sayer! I just love these photos of him!  I think the damage from the tape I water marks make them even cooler really. They actually look like they could’ve come from a contemporary kid’s fashion mag. Vintage photos at their best! I’m sure they will inspire something in the studio someday- I think the palette already has… 
Happy Birthday Chris!! Thanks for being my Everyday Inspiration! Ok, off to do a few festive errands before the little celebration tonight. 

So if you are in La Conner today, pop in to hutch studio & wish him a Happy Birthday. He’s busy working & making interesting things out of cardboard. Better yet, leave him a note on the hutch studio facebook page … that would knock his very cool socks off! Happy May Day everyone!
