my boy, my shop and lookie what i saw!

this is my big boy, y'all!

he is going to graduate this may.
i've been taking some pictures of him 
in our woods. 
surely that will keep him from leaving?

shop update:

for the vintage barware collector on your list...
this is an etched cocktail shaker with a 
Scotty dog design :)

i guess it is "vices" day since 
i also have an ashtray listed. 
(it might be just a dish, I can't tell)
or we could just say it is Scotty day...
that sounds better. 
i know lots of people collect Scotty dogs,
they are so cute!


i didn't even get out of the car to 
capture this scene the other day!
red barns and horses are just so beautiful, aren't they? 
see the tobacco hanging behind the horse?
that is a common sight here in our part of the country. 
i'm sure it was soon hung in that barn for firing. 
that woodsmoke is the most wonderful scent!
feel free to click on this photo and print it 
on some cardstock...surely somebody
is tapping their fingers, waiting for a card from you!

Very handsome son:) I love horse shots too:)

see you there! said...

Your boy is a heartbreaker, you'd better hang on to him while you can.

The horse/barn photo is perfect. You are getting to be quite the photographer.

Good looking son! They do grow up don't they and it is harder on us than them I think!!!

Ahhh Phyllis, if only endless photo shoots could keep the kids at home:>)
That cocktail shaker is so cute even I am tempted to buy it and I don't drink!

Hello Phyllis
Your son looks happy at home - perhaps he has to travel away and then will appreciate returning home to stay.
Wishing you and him guidance in the right direction

I love the photograph of the horse and barn Phyllis, thank you.

You have a handsome son. It is really something isn't it, to watch them grow into young men?
