A Royal Wedding in Iowa

So, my good friend and former roommate, Kate, just married her long-distance romeo, Charles. And, they asked if I could do their photography for the wedding. And, though I'm focusing less on photography these days, how could I say no to a Kate & Charles wedding? It just sounds so royal!

One Man's Junk is Simply Rooted's Treasure

Using junk is a new revolution in decorating. Maybe, it is because everyone is feeling a little more poor than they were 5 years ago and jumping on the "up-cycle" band-wagon is a cheap way that you can still decorate!

I love the style. It has character, it recycles, it remembers the past! What more could an old-fashioned girl hope for? You do have to have an eye for things and an imagination for "what could be." It helps if you have thrift stores, old farms, or flea markets around your area.

Here's a couple sweet finds! My latest cohort in the shop is named Karen. She is sassy, and she is talented. She helps a ton with spying good junk!
