10 months ago...

We moved into this house 10 months ago.

We knew this house would be temporary. We are renters. You got to leave at some point.

This house was a bit out of a price range that we felt comfortable with, but.. given the choices we had of rental houses... there are not many in this area. We had to pay the price.

Everything happens for a reason.

I like to think so with this house.

I took this picture on day 3 of living here.


It wasn't until a few months later, when I was having trouble with taking my pictures on a white background, that I tried to use this stone and stucco area on a livingroom wall.

And I am so glad I did. This wall gave me inspiration, and it sort of... focused me. I know.. strange that I am talking about a wall.

Somehow it seems more than just a wall.

Thank you, House. I will miss living in you.

I love the way your vases look on that shelf on the fireplace. I hope you are able to find another special background at your home in NC too. I bet you'll find new places of inspiration too!

Kristin, having a great spot to take photos is important to me too! I just love how your items look with that wall as a background. It's perfect! Maybe you could recreate something like this in your new home? Just a thought...
take care, sweetie!

This was has been perfect for your art. I'm sure you will find a new perfect wall in your new home. Just think of all the pictures you have to remember this wall with. Moving is hard.

There was a reason for that short little Texas hop, and I know you'll miss it, but in the end you'll likely see that it turned out perfectly!

Aw. I say you cut a chunk out of the wall!

No? Not a good idea?
