New Fall Projects

A couple of things I want to share with you: I've been asked to be a blogger for a local website that's all about our town! I'm so excited about this opportunity! I'll post a blog twice per month for their website about places to visit in our town/county and the surrounding area. Since taking day trips is one of my favorite pass-times anyway, this is a dream job!

I've also been working on my shop and have added Autumn note cards and greeting cards that feature my paintings and photography. I've also designed several new iphone cases, as well. I'll be adding holiday cards soon, too - for those of you who still send out cards. (I should take a survey!) I admit, I don't send out nearly as many as I used to, and sometimes I miss sending and receiving them! Here's the link to my Zazzle shop and a sample of one of my autumn note cards:

I hope you're enjoying the same beautiful fall weather that we are in northwest Ohio. Have a good weekend!

Until next time,

Hometown Adventure

I recently took a walk around my town, specifically to take photos of some of the beautiful architecture and old homes, wrought iron fencing and gardens, etc. I'm on a quest to rediscover all my town has to offer and really look at things with "new" eyes. It's kind of amazing what's really out there...waiting to be discovered, if we just take the time to look. Here's some of what I found:

A "secret" garden

A "hidden" mansion

Downtown Architecture

The home of my town's first millionaire. Built in 1853, and now the site of the county historical museum.

Old cobblestones beneath the crumbled blacktop

...and one of the lovely, tree-lined streets.

I hope you enjoyed this short tour, and maybe it will inspire you to take a "new" look around your own hometown.

Enjoy your weekend, everyone! 
Until next time,
