Best wishes for the coming year! Thanks for stopping by! Here's to 2014, May it only get better!
I know that's not the official name of these cute little wildflowers but that's what I'm calling them from now on, little bed heads. I think they are really just wild marigolds. I'm not sure. All three of my wildflower field guides have seen fit to leave this variety out. So they are at my mercy, poor little yellow bed heads!
A Conversation with shantytown...
We've seen better days, they seem to say, barely standing with shingles peeling and dirty panes.
Oh the things we've seen in the days gone by, of the living been done 'round here!
There was a time when we shined, why we were someone's dream... And now we are just run down shells of our former selves, lucky to still be around...
But mind you, this wasn't always shantytown, and every shack has a tale to tell...
So catch us while we can still be caught, before they knock us down to make room for the new or failing that, we just can't stand up any longer...
Because we've seen better days!

I'm blown away by some of the creative apps for iPhone! I made this with a little gem called iornament. I must say the possibilities are limited only by my imagination! I spent way too much time falling down the rabbit hole with this app! And now I have three more new ones to try... So fair warning! Expect the unexpected!
Right before I took this I thought "I really should clean these old bottles up." Right after I took it I thought, "I'm sure glad I didn't clean them up first!" Lol! Sometimes clean isn't better!
This neighborhood may be old and a bit run down but it is cozy and I am looking forward to the Christmas season in shantytown!
Art, photos, articles, resources, gift ideas, and more!
