I was a winner!

A few weeks ago,  Sherri Mitchell emailed me to let me know that I was the winner of her giveaway!  Yay me!  I knew that it was going to be a great giveaway when I entered, but I didn't realize it was going to be THIS GOOD!  Thank you Sherri!  You can find her awesome blog here if your not already a follower please check her out, you will  love her blog as much as I do.  Here is my treasure box!

Love, love, love it all!

These are cool!  Super simple yet brilliant! Flowers torn from paper, aged and a button in the center.

One of my favorite things in the box, an old prescription-I think I'm going to frame it and put it in my bathroom.



 Beautiful tags

I used the twine that was in the treasure box and criss crossed it on the back of this frame.  I added some of the really cool tags, a piece of lace and a paper flower to it.  Its just what this little frame needed!

Family Portrait...

This is my youngest daughter Gabi and my son Gus, they are basically the most  photogenic people in  my home.  I'm not a huge fan of going to a place of  business and taking family portraits.  What I do prefer is taking my own pictures and developing them on my own, almost always transforming them to black and white photos.  We haven't taken a family portrait in many many years.  I have prepared my family (yes, I heard a lot of moans and groans and whining) to take pictures this weekend.  Whether they want to stand beside each other or not for 15 minutes is not my problem, no excuses, no absentees.... nothing...Its going to happen, or I'm going to be one cranky lady!

I need some ideas!  Other then the beach (although beach pics are always the prettiest, I live 1 1/2 hours away) and I'm going to be lucky to get everyone in one picture, I am not going to press my luck with a long car drive. Do you have any pretty spots that you can suggest that would serve as a pretty background?

Once again, thanks for all of your help!
