fine, pinch me

No green pancakes, no one is wearing green-where is my St. Patty's Day love?
I did tell my tasteful joke to Collin, the one I tell every year & I photographed my monthly merriment for March--there's mucho green there.
If you remember February's post... it's just a fun photo where I put together little bits & pieces of stuff that makes me happy.
-Collecting vintage cameras
-Umbrellas
-Watching Stranger Than Fiction
-Making black and white polka dot butterflies (Martha Stewart punch)
-A fab floral top from Forever 21 (I asked Collin if it looked 'grandma-ey' -not that grandmas aren't cool- and he just laughed. I'm digging floral right now plus the top was $12.50-sweet!)
-Scrapbooking with this adorable woodgrain deer
-Nerd glasses (Avery loves those more than me.)
-Catching Avery's silly antics on my flip video
Happy St. Patrick's Day! :)

PS Thanks for your insightful words about change. Your kind comments mean a lot!!

Such a cool idea for a photo/layout... I'm going to have to do this! Thanks for the inspiration, today and all the time!

I'm so happy to hear someone else sing the praises of Stranger than Fiction. It's one of my all-time favorite movies. It's so sweet and poetic. And when he brings her "flours", forget about it...cry every time. (Love the shirt, by the way).

I loved the pic from yesterday so much, I had to copy it! I climbed into the culvert in front of our house and had my son stand outside for a photo. It turned out well even though it was not as posed as yours. Thanks for the idea!

Hey Liz! My name is Tiffany, I'm Kaitlyn Krainiks sister-in-law. She told me about your blog and now I'm hooked! I love it! You are so talented! I LOVE the side bar pic of you and Collin and have been trying to figure out how you got the background wall to look distressed. I figured I should just stop searching and just ask you. Did you use and overlay, if so where did you get it? Anyway, I would LOVE it if you would let me know! twinkmail@hotmail.com Thanks so much! Happy St. Paddys day! Tiffany:)

Cute grouping! I love the shirt and shoes!

I love your March grouping...so inspiring. The colors really look like spring. Stranger Than Fiction is one of my all-time favorites. I love it when he brings her "flours".

Cathy said...

Love that top? Is that one of the "off the shoulder" ones with the straps? Tried to find it on the site but not sure what I'm looking for.

debevans said...

I thought it would be neat to collect vintage cameras so I started looking for them in Goodwills but haven't found one yet. The only time I saw one a guy in front of me grabbed it before I could :(

Love the pic...it is so fun to see into your world. While we are on the subject of color....can we talk about something yellow??? I know you love yellow!!!

I was wondering about the yellow glasses! Could we have an update, pretty please? With a big cherry on top?!!!!

Cassie said...

I like that idea of photographing things that make you happy at a given time. What a nice memory to look back on.

Holly T. said...

Love the monthly pics! Wonderful idea. Might be doing a "right now" mixture for me...fun.

littlegreen said...

hey liz, have you seen the polyvore thing i blogged about today... I know you'd love it... just be careful, it is so addicting!!
Your monthly merriments remind me of it... i found it through elsie's blog...
happy friday!
