Now all he needs is a wallet. I'm having so much fun with my new app. I took an iPad photo of a 1922 bronze dog medal in my collection and turned it into a Dog Dollar.

I took this photo of my beautiful mother sitting on a giant tree trunk in Mendham NJ years ago. I added the giant moth from one of my antiquarian prints with photoshop. Sadly the tree isn't there now. I can't believe they cut it down just because the roots were interfering with the sidewalk as you can well imagine. There has to be another reason ... maybe it was struck by lightening or was diseased. It was one of my favorite things in that bucolic village standing proudly in front of a charming old church with a red door.
I'm having fun playing with an app called ETCHINGS I bought this morning for 99¢. This is the July 4th photo I made in my kitchen transformed with the app. There are lots of other possibilities too. This is now used to celebrate the Labor Day holiday.

Happy Friday everyone. Webster is still in bed and I'm having my morning quiet time with my first cup of coffee. It's cool and crisp with nice sunshine and the feeling of fall in the air. Enjoy the last day of August and, for some, the beginning of the long Labor Day weekend. I took this photo with my iPhone. The new model is coming out next month but I'm still thrilled with the one I have (the 4S) so I won't be rushing to get a replacement. It's time for my second cup of java now -- see you later.

I love the unassuming country drive with the grass growing up the middle, don't you? The shingle style homes from the Hamptons to Montauk are fabulous. Are you enjoying the last few days of August? via

I would add reading lights to the sides of the bookcases and would require a TV on the wall opposite the foot of the bed. Otherwise, it's perfect. Agreed? I'm up on the third floor paying bills and looking at saved photos. I think I must have already blogged this and I have no idea of the photo source. Those old boards with the great patina on the ceiling must have been old floorboards from the attic. I love the cozy size of the room. My own bedroom is about this size. I have bookcases and a television on the far wall. And a window on each side of the bed.

You can never have too many drawers, can you? I love this bank of drawers at the end of a kitchen island so much better than the usual bookcase for cookbooks. This would be so much more useful. Everything else in the room is pretty wonderful too. via

I wish I had this song on a continuous loop so I could play it to myself every night to sing me to sleep. It is hauntingly beautiful. Click HERE if you can't see the embedded video. Goodnight.
This is truly a work of art, isn't it? I never would have thought of using a seahorse motif if I were designing a door handle but I think it's perfect! The backplate looks like a scallop shell. Found on a Castle door in Death Valley
I photographed this floor mat at the bottom of the basement stairs a while ago at an open house. I blocked out the owners' name. It was probably one of those promotional bonuses for contributing to NPR. Sometimes I sometimes listen to a little bit of Garrison Keillor on Prairie Home Companion when it begins on Saturday nights before I turn off the radio and switch to the television.
I thought this might be a good thing to stencil for DIY Christmas gifts or housewarming presents. All you would have to do is fill in the family name after you get the original pattern made. You could also make something to frame on your printer as well. What are you doing with all of those fonts anyway? This would be a good project to use some of them, wouldn't it? Have fun.
