Things that make me happy.

Happy Tuesday! I'm constantly amazed by all of the wonderful ideas, great information, and creative people I come across online. Here's a few that are inspiring and enticing me today:

The Green Kitchen - Oh my, Oh my! I could spend hours searching their recipes and drooling at their pictures. Not to mention days and days making all the delicious food they share with us. For starters, doesn't this green kiwi drink sound delicious?

Kiwi Juice
Around 4 glasses

8 kiwi fruits
3 green apples (we used granny smith)
1/3 cucumber (about 4 inches)
1 piece of fresh ginger
fresh mint leaves

Serve with: ice cubes

Mix all the ingredients in a juice machine. Serve immediately with lots of ice.

I really enjoy taking pictures of other people, but sometimes that's not an option. I was feeling creative yesterday so I set up a little studio in my living room. Here are a few of the shots that came from my make-shift studio. Someday I would love to get a whole studio set-up. For those of you who are photographers, what is your favorite thing to shoot and do you have your own studio space?

I want to share with you a few things I'm loving right now. Hoping you might find some love in them too.

This Mexican Chocolate recipe found via Mint. Not to mention the blog, Feminine Modern, that the recipe was posted at!

Pretty vintage inspired wedding photos at The Drifter and the Gypsy.

The delightful work of LaCanotRouge. Animals at their best.

Spring bulbs and Loreta's Photography. Amazing!

Rainbows in Tucson, by Leslie Hawles. I can't believe I missed it!

Only one hour left!

Hi all! Unfortunately this is coming to your attention very late, but I just found out that my giveaway at the Embellished Life ends tonight at 12 pm Eastern time. I've fallen behind in my blog following this week, so unfortunately this is what happens...I miss the important stuff. But, you can still enter and read my interview with Jessica. Her blog is really wonderful and she has such a fabulous way of speaking about others art.

I hope you can stop by and enter.

Spring is a comin'

Sometimes the grass is greener...

Ah, green. You are the epitome of spring. You brighten our life; you soothe us with your calm.

O.k., without getting overly dramatic, fresh green grass does a lot to lift my spirits and I wanted to share that with you. So, click on the image above to be taken to my flickr page where you can download the full size version of this image. It makes a great desktop background!

Happy Pre-Spring!

I've listed a few new items in my shop tonight. I took these when I first got my camera, but have finally gotten around to listing them. They are a few of my all-time favorites.
