The Unveiling

54ยบ ~ gray skies with streaks of light behind to prove the sun's existence, pure calm down at eye-level with a slight breeze in the upper branches

I confess, Dear Readers, that I'm nervous about this post.  I'm unveiling the results of my photo shoot from December.  My dear friend and colleague, Kimberly Kwee, who is a great artist as well as photographer came by the house and made me perfectly at ease while she shot me; in fact, maybe too much at ease as my inner flirt and sass somehow rose to the surface.  Today, I received the finished product and I'm stunned by Kim's talent at bringing out the best in me.  She gave me the files in their original format, so I've cropped here as best I can, which means the dimensions may not be right at all.

But all of that is throat-clearing.  Without further ado: Voila!

The bureau belonged to my maternal grandparents and is my inheritance.

The art in the lower right is by my good friend, Anne Greenwood.

This art is by another good friend, Megan Chapman.

Books, Books, Book, a lizard, and a bird (handmade cover of my friend Dana Falconberry's CD).

China hutch in far background is C's grandfathers, another inheritance.
