{ saturday }

Saturday my sweet friend & neighbor invited me out for a trip to my local farmers market.
I couldn't resist the chance to go to one of my favorite places and get out of doing housework { *wink }.
Of course I grabbed up my favorite thrift store market bag, and my as of yet un-named baby.
{ can't wait to have a fun name to refer to my camera by, I'm so looking forward to the end of the month . }

I just wanted to share some of the photos I snapped while I was there.
I'm sure everyone walking around thought I was a little nutty taking pictures of the veggies.

I feel like I'm back in college again taking my photography courses. It's really exciting to break out my camera and challenge myself to get some good shots. I'm so happy I started this blog, It really has made me think more creatively, which is exactly what I was hoping for.

Saturday's Shot of the Day

This photograph really speaks to me, I'm trying to think of why, but it's really just a feeling I get inside when I look at it. I just really love it. Maybe it's the contrast, or the way the onions colors fade from green to white. Does it do anything for you? Or is it just me because it's my image, and my experience....just wondering.

Hope you are having a wonderful Monday. The sun is shining here, and I couldn't be happier.

Please help me name my baby.

    p.s. thanks so much for posting about my giveaway...I really do appreciate it!

  8. I am heading over from Tara's. Your blog has a beautiful feel and layout. Your photos are also lovely.

  9. We have a little farmers market that sets up near our home 3 x a week and for the few months it is there it's where we will buy all our fresh flowers/ fruits/veg/. Love the photo of the spring onions. I think it would look beautiful framed and hanging in your kitchen ♥

  10. I love the onion photo. Would be great framed for a kitchen..Makes my eyes water!
    How about naming your baby Baby?

  11. Hi Carrie! Loved your guest post on Tara's blog. So funny and creative. I love all of your knitting...those scarves are gorgeous! Love your blog! Have a wonderful week!


  12. Hey Carrie, I'm Carrie too and I just happened over to your blog and I have to say I love it. Your pictures are great! Like you, I love a farmers market and only wish there was one near my house.

  13. Hi Carrie - gorgeous photos and I love your shot of the day!! Wow I wish we had a farmers market to go to, you would think living in the country we would have one, but no.... Wishing you a lovely week ~ Tina xx

  14. I love this blog and pics. Not because I was there or anything. =) But because you made me realize just how beauty can be found in everything, even an onion. They look to perfect to be real. I would love to have a print of this for my kitchen. ;)Thanks for being you! You really do help people to be more creative!!

  15. Carrie - your blog is beautiful. I love old farmsteads. Can't you just feel the stories waiting to be told. It's so sad to me when they become neglected and abandoned.

  16. Great shots!

    I think your camera needs to be a boy, and his name is DeSoto. You like to explore, and he can lead you to new worlds. DeSoto discovered the Mississippi River which is in the heartland of the US. That farm reminds me of ones that might be found there.

    DeSoto is also the name of a vintage car (made in America), and we all know that cars like to have adventures, too.

    And if you need an acronym for his name, it can be DS for DeSoto or Dear Snapshooter. Your choice. ;-)



  17. I love all of the farmer's market pictures! I need to take my camera with me when I am doing more of the everyday thing! Love the onions pic, well I love green onions anyway, but the lines and the colors are so pretty!

  18. What a beautiful blog! New around here so I have quite a bit of catching up to do. Can't wait! Marija

  19. what do i love? the greens, the whites, the stripes. it
    is so beautiful.

    if your baby is a girl, how about 'lily'...
    a boy, 'grady'?

    good luck

  20. You captured some incredible images~ gorgeous! Baby names??? Three of my very good friends had babies in the past few months, I'm all out on that front. My best to you and congrats! :)

    Take Care,
    p.s. I was telling my husband about asking us to think of a name for your camera. UHHHH he came up with FLASH~ wow you see why it took us so long in the hospital to agree on names, not pretty

  22. P.S.
