Found Some Old Suitcases In The Closet

So my daughter and I went up to the foothills to take some pictures. Anything is a diversion these days. And everyday is a holiday, just look at Happy...she was thrilled w/these old cases filled with costumes (black glittery pants w/a tail sewn on the butt!)and crafty materials....Yesterday was Happy Tuesday anyway, as is every Tuesday. It means Happy and I get to play dress up and have fabulous photo shoots. We make a weekly treat out of the whole affair. It's almost always a race home so we can upload the pics and see what we have. In this one, I think Happy looks like she is waiting for a wayward bus in a Steinbeck novel....

How cool is that?! I want to come and play with you on Tuesdays. I think that I need some theme days here in Texas.

By the by, just one more stunning member of your family. They just keep coming.

Your children are all beautiful. They look so confident, so nice to see especially in your teen children. Good idea for Tuesdays!
ryc- I like thistles too, even if they are officially noxious weeds.

I think of the old car that left her stranded, her scarf having blown off into the dusty wind.

Love it. You take great pictures. I am jealous.

I want to be artsy, but I cannot always come through. No talent. :{

Knitsteel,
Thank you, I think they are very nice children to have.
Mathew P.,
It's always nice when even something as clunky as a suitcase has sweet memories attached to it.
Jennifer,
Thanx, my mom bought me a Kodak Easyshare and it's alot of fun. There are special effects like colorbook and cartoon. I did the spotlight effect on the other photo of Happy w/the Suitcase.
Girl of Approval,

This is such a gorgeous photo, it has a lovely vintage feel to it. What a dress! Your daughter is beautiful.

Thanks for coming by my blog and for your kind words, I'm glad I'm inspiring someone!

I love the idea of your blog, coming clean on whatever...I could do with that, if only I had the guts to do it!

Cheers!
