and they all fall down

This past week almost all the leaves fell off our trees.. Especially the bright red leaves of the big Japanese maple in our backyard.


Friday afternoon right after school we thought we'd take a jump in the leaves, before they had to be raked, bagged and taken away.






So glad we took out the time to do so.. the weekend got cold and wet and all the leaves blew away.

In the fall 2008 we took a beautiful road trip through New England.. for those who don't know that is North East part of America including Connecticut, New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Rhode Island and Massachusetts. If you haven't had the chance to travel through New England during autumn I suggest you add it to your list.. it is stunning.

On one of our stops in Connecticut we took a trip in an old steam train in Essex. It was idyllic. It reminded me of the time when trains were one of the essential modes of transportation.. and every now and then the train would let out a little tut, it was enchanting. These two photographs are of the plush swiveling chairs inside the train. A different treatment, different angles.. different moods. Which do you prefer?



Sitting Blue and Sitting the Old Fashioned Way are both available for purchase here. They are available in various sizes and price points.

lately

I know it feels like I just did a lately post.. but I guess I just haven't been blogging enough lately. I am sick, coughing up a storm. H is teething and is just now finally starting to sleep more than a few hours during the night so with sickness I was also severely sleep deprived. A lot has been going on lately.

Last time I showed you some paint being mixed... well the room has been painted now more things are being painted the same color.. we hope to put at least 50%  of it together during the weekend.. finger crossed.. but painting.. doing anything really with a nosy baby is impossible.. we have a huge house filled with toys.. but the only room he wants to be in is the one with the paint.

By the way little H is climbing stairs now.. we have baby gated everything. So he now sits by the gate trying to figure out how to open them.. ps can you believe he is now ten months old!

I had also mentioned some contractors.. well they have arrived and work on the basement has begun.. fingers crossed we are hoping it'll be done before the holidays..


D and I went on our first field trip together.. it was wonderful.. we learnt about the various different kinds of pumpkins, how to bake an apple pie, tasted some fresh donuts and drank cider before going on a hayride and picking a pumpkin.




 H tried to eat it


then D painted it


that's what we've been up to.. what about you?

Alstede Farms

Towards the end of September.. while the grandparent's where still here, when Aunt T, Uncle M and Little S were visiting we took a trip to Alstede Farms to feed some animals, pick some fruit and get lost in a maze of corn.






D rode a pony.. conquered the mountain of hay stacks and we had to drag him back home kicking and screaming!

About 45 minutes outside of Lisbon is the idyllic small town of Sintra. A must see if you ever find yourself in Portugal. There, there is the Quinta da Regaleira, a world heritage site by UNESCO and an exuberantly Gothic garden, with hidden tunnels, inverted tower, winding paths, a chapel and a small palace. This photograph Light the Way Home was taken inside one of the hidden tunnels.
This beautifully intriguing and mysterious photograph is sure to be the star on your wall. Purchase HERE

Wildwoods, New Jersey

When the grandparents were still here, when the sun was still shinning, when it was still summer we made a trip down to Wildwoods, New Jersey. D is getting better at riding by himself and M and I were in need of a great adrenaline rush.





and during all this family fun M and I snuck in a roller coaster :) sometimes all you need is a good scream! The last time we went to the boardwalk there was no H and D was so little.. take a peak here.

At Work was taken way back in 2007. It is a picture of my then maid, Sakina in her small and modest home where I captured her hands as she used two rocks to grind herbs and spices to make that nights meal. This is a method still used in homes where a mechanical grinder is a luxury and not a necessity. According to Sakina and her mother, herbs ground on a rock maintain the rich flavors that are often lost by all our machines.

This photograph was Exhibited at the Art Gallery House 2012 and Featured in a PictoryMag Showcase but surprisingly never been sold. Lets change that and give this gorgeous piece a home.

At Work will be a great addition to you kitchen, dinning room.. and every other room. Looking for a unique hostess gift or a little something for your friend who loves to cook. The print is available in a variety of price points and can be custom framed and ready to hang.
