Ten from January

Do you ever get bogged down by photos? 

I haven't had a lot of time to post, but I never stop snapping.

It can be a problem!

Here are a few I want to share with you from the past few weeks... 

My sweet Belle. A pile of sand is heaven to her!

Is it just me or is there a person trying to get out of this dead tree?
It reminds me of a ship's masthead.

If these Diva wine koozies were for sale, I'd buy them all!

I stood and watched the sun bring the colors of these trees to life, by way of their reflection in the pond.

Max is running!

I just love old cedar posts and barbed wire.

And silhouettes of trees against the sky.

This is how we heat our whole house, even on frosty mornings, thanks to my design-genius husband.


  1. Awww Belle, you look so comfy there with sand all over one side of your body. Perfect!

    We have a wood stove too, and I love it. It almost heats the whole house & warmth from wood is such a great feeling.

  2. Nice collection !
    Best regards from Paris,


  3. love your pups. beautiful gnarly tree! and a great looking woodstove!

  4. Belle really does look like she's in heaven!

    I see a leg/knee in that tree, but I can't tell if it's climbing up, or down.

    If we had to count on wood for heat, I'd freeze to death. We don't even use our fireplace, the smell drives me crazy. (I know, I know... make that crazier)

  5. Oh yes...many many files of photos. And what to do with them all? So many lovely captures here Barbara. Love that pup ~ so cute!

  6. Oh yes on taking more photos than I know what to do with. I love these, especially the ones with Max & Belle. When I saw the tree I thought I saw a knee jutting out--that was before I read your comment. Weird!

  7. Great shoots. I bet belle likes the warm sand.

  8. what wonderful photos and i did see a person trying to escape that tree .. maybe its enchanted?

  9. I hear you about having too many photos! Loved this series - the first one is just delightful.

  10. I'm convinced your hubby and my hubby could share some awesome ideas -- we heat only with the wood stove (1970s Earth Stove) too!

    I <3 Max. What a beauty!

  11. Max is such a sweetie! And we love our wood stove we use in our Maine house. Yours is gorgeous!

  12. What great shots. I especially love the one of Belle!

  13. Really enjoyed these photos, Barbara! And I do see a person climbing out of that tree.

  14. thanks for visiting my blog and leading me here. so nice! and now i really, really, really want a wood burning stove. really.
