I started up a blog and wasn't able to keep up with it. It was called "A Little Old Fashioned". It was going to highlight my love of antique Milk Glass, DIY projects, and other random things in my life. But as usual I found my self behind in the blogging world. I am going to bring some of the best posts over here and try to just maintain one Blog here that is a mix of my life so you can get to know me better and my work so you can see what I do best.
Anyways! Who else loves Milk glass? ;) When I am out antiquing I am looking for Milk glass pieces I don't have, black and white enamelware, vintage cutting boards and rolling pins, fun bar ware and vintage tea towels. I have new obsession with hand embroidered tea towels. I gave away a bunch that I had made for Christmas this year. It was fun. I think my neighbors liked them.
My Christmas Card season was super busy. I love squeezing in as many Family sessions in that I can. AND what is even more fun is getting some of my own pictures back in the mail. I love it. Makes my heart so Happy.
This New year has brought in a new challenge for me. I haven't been running very consistently the last few years. But my sister in law talked me into training for a 1/2 marathon in March! So if you see me and my dog out running I hope I don't look like I am dying. I am enjoying the challenge and really enjoying running again.
Also, I have been on the hunt for a puppy. We had to put our old girl Lou down at the beginning of December due to Cancer. She was almost 15 years old. My husband and I got her right after we were married. We have another dog, he was found in the woods dumped. I have had him for almost 11 years. But due to the nature of him being afraid of us for the first year or so he never quite relaxed into that cuddly dog. He loves all of us and is the most gentle of souls. It's so sad people could just dump a dog in the woods and leave them for dead. Anyways, my kids have never experienced a puppy. They are 12, 10, and 7, what I think are the perfect ages to have a puppy. To experience the full circle of life. So I have been looking and looking for the right dog at the animal shelters in town. There are so many dogs that need to be adopted. I kind of want to take them all. But I have some specific traits I am looking for.
That's a brief little summary of what I have been up to. Hopefully in between runs, dog searching, hand embroidery, taking care of my kids, and taking pictures, I will update this blog a little better. :)
