    What a fabulous view… inspiring! I had a whole set, plus many serving pieces of Hull Brown Drip stoneware… I sold service for 8 plus many extras for less than $100 at a local auction… I miss it, it was so earthy! I'm your newest GFC follower and RSS subscriber…

    That is just an amazing view. I think it's so neat that you set up your breakfast table out there to enjoy the view of the mountains and God's creation. Beautiful, Anita!

    Absolutely breathtaking! Yes, I can see why there is no other place you'd rather be. By the way, I'm still in awe of the beautiful pictures you are taking these days. Maybe you'll share some of the tips that you learned? (hint, hint..)

      Thanks Velma! We learned SO much in the workshop we went to so I'm hoping to get the photographer whose class we attended to do a guest post soon:-)

    Anita, your view is beyond words to describe. Over time I have enjoyed seeing what you are doing with your home and landscape. We have something in common – Franciscan Ivy china. You've given me several inspirations for my mama's china.
