Faded Prairie Photo Challenge {3}..

this little post is going to be jam packed...

hang with me okay! :0)

first...

*THANK YOU* to all for your kind, kind words and encouragement with this post....

i am feeling relieved this weekend with my decision, relieved and grateful, that it was my decision, i wasn't forced into it by other circumstances, failures, and someone else's decision making...i'm not sure if i could have handled it otherwise...

just to clarify a little...i'm not giving up blogging or my etsy store...

blogging has given me *amazing* opportunities and friendships that i wouldn't have had otherwise, i am very blessed in this; i can focus more on my vision for this little piece of the prairie and hopefully will have opportunities to meet up with some of you faithful readers during my travels this summer!!

now for our winners of last weeks photo challenge....*loved*...


ally's {baby blues}..oh.my.goodness!!!

for our final photo challenge of the month and keeping with the {love} theme...how about...

{once loved}...

share with us any item, vintage or antique, that was once {loved} and has found {love} again in your hands...

i do believe this is going to be my absolute *favorite*!!

for my entry my photo incorporates a couple of my *favorite* once loved goods...

barn vents, white ironstone, and milk/cream cans...






i just can't seem to get enough of these type of finds...*bliss*... :0)

CANNOT wait to see your once {loved} photos!! be sure to enter here in our flickr group...

*thank you* again for all your support and joining in on the challenges! i have some fun ideas for next months challenges...

oh...and i finally got around to creating a button:

I've been following your blog for a while now. Just wanted to let you know I am giving away a nice khaki jacket to one lucky follower of my blog as soon as I hit the 300 followers mark. Come check it out.

And I'm glad to hear you are NOT leaving bloggyland! Your talent would be greatly missed.

I feel so honored to be amongst the chosen. They are all beautiful photos. And I'm so happy to know you're not giving up your blog - it so makes my morning cup of coffee complete but I do know "real life" always comes first.

Kristin - I got the chills when I read your post about closing your brick and mortar store. (new to your blog - just found it surfing around!) I closed my wonderful home and garden shop a few years back, and there's hardly a day I don't remember something related to it, and still miss it. It was hard work, but everyday was "play day!" Your feelings are so like those I remember, too. I wish you continued success and unrelenting peace of mind.

michelle said...

Beautiful photos!! I love them all and they are all so talented just like you my friend!

amyd said...

OK, I joined in on the fun. It's a little leap of faith for me, but it sounded fun so off I went to photograph my once loved "junque".

Thanks for hostessing such a fun event.
