You Asked for Photos...

...And that's exactly what I've got for you! I have received so much valuable feedback because of your entries in the giveaway I'm doing right now. I love to post photos on my blog, but I have wondered before if my blog was a little TOO picture-heavy. I take my camera with me everywhere I go, and I love to wander around in parks, pastures, and in my own house looking for something to inspire me. Thanks for appreciating something that makes me so happy! Okay, enough talk. Here come the photos! I'll try to resist my chatty tendencies and keep it to a brief caption for each picture.


A statue near my house that makes me wish I was a dancer


The moon on a particularly lovely evening


One of these days, I'm going to curl up and take a nap in this clover patch in our backyard.


This is what I come home to. It's good to be loved. ♥


I've been known to daydream while sipping coffee and gazing out these windows.


One of my plants has red and pink leaves that glow like fire when the sun shines through them.


If you've never been to Oklahoma, I can tell you what to expect if you ever visit the rural areas of this state: Cows. Lots and lots of cows.

If you're a newcomer to my blog, this is me and my husband. Except he wasn't my husband yet when this was taken. We took our sweet time with the whole marriage thing.

So there you have it, a few little photos to start off your morning. I can't even tell you how much I appreciate the feedback I've been getting in your giveaway entries. I wish I could give each and every one of you a prize, because your input is so valuable to me. When I asked what you wanted to see more of, the next most popular responses other than photos were tutorials, vintage finds, and recipes. So my next blog post is going to be one of those things. I'm not telling WHICH one, because that's a secret! (Translation: I haven't made up my mind yet.)

You may have noticed that nature is a recurring pattern in the photos I take. Now I want to know what inspires you to take out your camera and capture the moment! Is it your kids? Your garden? Your sexy boyfriend? Feel free to post links to your flickr page or your favorite photo. I love eye candy!

Wow, that red/pink plant must look amazing. Just from the color it blew me away.

I am the same way with taking my camera everywhere, but I feel like I don't want to miss a thing...so keep up the pics!!

Renee said...

GOOD MORNING!

Loving the photos! I always forget to bring my camera places, so I love seeing other people's photos. Especially when they're in Oklahoma and Tulsa! :) Since my camera is at home mostly, I take pictures of the cats and of my invitations. Ha!

Have a great day and a Happy Memorial Day! I took off today, so four day weekend for Renee! HOLLA!

Erin said...

Love the red and fuscia leaf.

I don't remember seeing that statue in Tulsa.

My favorite view in Tulsa is sitting at Phil's DIner with a plate of his chicken chunks on it! LOL


Have a great weekend!

Awesome, awesome, awesome shots, Holly! As an amateur photographer myself I just enjoy seeing photos so much!

I love taking shots of Cinnamon, the puppy, I do take loads of nature pics, there's so much beauty in Mother Nature! And I do love taking pics of all the awesome handmade goodies I get! =D

Raven :) said...

Oh Holly, it's so nice to see you posting again! I miss reading your blog.

You can never have a too pictured out blog! If that is the case, then I'm screwed. ~(;

Love the pink leaf and the one of you and your now hubby. hee hee You should write a whole post about how you met and such! Just a thought...

babalisme said...

The dancer's statue, it's remarkably interesting photo!! I love it!

I always forgot to tote my cam everywhere, d'oh, and when I see something interesting I snap it with my crappy camera phone.

Fantastic photos!! I love that pink/red plant. That was simply amazing! And what a cute pic of you and your hubby!

I seriously need to take pictures more. I don't do it enough!

Leslie said...

Cool pictures! I*m digging the very 1st one, you captured the light awesomely (is that a word?) in that poto.

cabin + cub said...

I say the more photos the better! I love looking at your photos. Your cats are so sweet looking.... I can imagine them taking naps in that clover. ;)

Jennifer Juniper said...

I love that statue! That photo would look awesome blown up to poster size!

Rheea said...

You got me. Now I'm putting Oklahoma into my countries-to-visit list. I bet I'll fall in love with Oklahoma (not that I haven't already) judging from all the lovely photos and things you told us about. Who knows, my buddy might even invite me to her cosy apartment for a cup of coffee. ;)

Besides constantly snapping pics of my darling boy, Nono, I love to take photos of the sky! I guess that's what happen when you don't have a lover to take pics with, you use your camera on your dog and the sky. lol.
