Fine Art Friday {October}

I am not really sure how it's October already, but it is. And it's almost the end of the year and I can't wrap my head around how fast 2013 has seemed to fly by. I realize that's a really cliche thing to say, but it is true and I'm sure next month I'll be freaking out about how close it is to Christmas! But for now, I'm just going to freak out about what I'm going to be for Halloween (yes I still like to dress up, don't judge me!). And I think that might be what some of my fPOE ladies are doing as well because the participation is down this month. Life is busy but I so appreciate the handful of women that have stuck this through with me all year (and those that pop in occasionally as well). I love getting the email submissions each month to see what my talented fPOE ladies have created. They never cease to amaze me!! Anyway, Happy October friends! Enjoy...

Description: Over the Labor Day weekend, my husband and I were able to get away to Lake Tahoe without our children! One morning we set out early for Emerald Bay and were the first kayaks on the water. The light and water were perfect; I would wander back there any day...

Title: Spice of Life
Description: Strolling along at a market in Amsterdam and saw these beautiful stalks of garlic. Nothing stirs my palate like hearty garlic such as spices liven up mere taste.

Title: The beach is my happy place
Description: Taken on one of my three visits to the beach this summer. I can't tell you how many shots of seagulls I took on this particular trip.

Title: That old Dodge
Description: While perusing a flea market with my sister, we happened upon this jewel of a treasure. I stopped dead in my tracks and snapped a cell phone photo because that was the only camera I had with me at the time (I know, what's wrong with me?!). But instead of loading it to Instagram right away, I saved it, just for today!
