Cynthia’s cottage in Country Living!

Last September, my friend and fabulous set designer, merchandiser extraordinaire
Vince Maggio, let me know he had staged a fabulous cottage in McKinney. I asked
if he would like photos taken of his work and he and Cynthia said “Yes”. As it
turned out, Cynthia was going to submit photos of her home to several publications
hoping to get them published, so perfect timing! Well, I stepped in the front door
and was in Heaven! Of course this home needs to be published! Needless to say,
Country Living has it in the current July/August issue so pick up a copy! In 2017
it will also be featured in a book, City Farmhouse. I had the pleasure of sitting in
onboth of the photo shoots, so you can image this little photographer
was especially happy!

Audie Murphy Day!

Every year, Farmersville honors Audie Murphy and all veterans and active duty military with a parade and all kinds of celebration! There was a fly over to start the festivities with 3 planes from the Ghost Squadron Commemorative Air Force in DFW, a Vultee BT-15, PT-17 Stearman and T-6. After that, a Vietnam era helicopter, The Ghost Ship Huey 197 flew over several times. Most memorable was a one man bio-play show at 1st Baptist with L.A. actor Duffy Hudson portraying Americas most decorated war hero, Audie Murphy. The scenes of what he went through in the trenches brought tears to many eyes. Of course, a Texas parade isn’t complete without a few horses, cowboys and antique autos!

Fredericksburg…Oh how I love Thee….

A few weeks ago I attend a Wet Plate Collodion workshop in Johnson City at the
A. Smith photo gallery and stayed in Fredericksburg at an Air B&B…needless to say,
I was in Heaven!

Yes, ton’s of details and last minute changes…poor Joe, my contractor,
but he was willing and able and I couldn’t be happier with the end results!
Next comes the little master bath that I pretty much gutted while they
were in the “demo” mode, but will have to wait till funds make this
next phase a reality!
