Crushed

The beautiful and talented Michelle Ward throws out a new challenge every month on her Green Pepper Street Team blog. How cool is that? I've never participated before, but this month it's crushes. Crushes? Oh yeah. I've got a fewFirst on my list of obsessions these days is the touching work of Judy Wilkenfeld! If you haven't been there yet, gather up your tissues and head over to this most remarkable of blogs. Her thorough, thoughtful and loving attention to detail in this body of work (Numbers) simply blows me away. Don't hesitate. Go now!I also have a huge crush on the delightful Elizabeth Bunsen and family, having just spent the most wonderful of weekends with them all. This particular bay on Lake Champlain is another place to run, jump, hop if you get the chance.Oh, and antique store finds. I love those! Especially old cigar boxes and vintage tins.And no list of my crushes would be complete without adding this silly dog. I've heard that many women claim their dog would be their boyfriend if he were a man. Gosh, Atticus is a pain in the neck now. Imagine if he could talk!

  1. oh crushes are wonderful and contagious - going immediately over to Judy's after posting this comment - now I think this crush thing is shared by all of us and there are definite overlaps - was about to photo MY tin and cigar box collections when I broke my 4th metatarsal - (story will follow chez moi)and ended up visiting Dr.s Bernstein and Neel... more stories - and believe me - I am feeling VERY sorry for myself - bought chocolate...

    yes - crushes part two - and you got a leg up my darling girl...

  6. Trouble is my dog - as much as I love him - is like every man I dated before I became sane. Arrogant, gorgeous and only out for himself :-)

  8. Love your crushes! I like the idea of sharing several, I'd do the same but that would require some major cleaning & organising just to photograph it all:)

  9. Beautiful entry and one that sent me back to 1984-88 when I lived in West Chester and spent many, many Sundays antique hunting and yard saling. That was when I was in college and broke. Now, my treasure hunting would not be referred for Sunday. Scottsdale is not in any way similar. So, thanks for the memory of that soulful place. Jodi
