Doesn't look a bit cloudy here : ) Lovely post, that house is amazing and I think the old gas station would be perfect for a studio : )

Love the recap of your week, especially with the little miss who looks like a little piece of art in her adorable hairband and tights, and your repeat patterns which I love love love and think would be awesome at spoon flower!

Just curious...did you use the youtube tutorial that someone put in your comments? Just curious because I watched it and wondered if it was hard to do!

Hugs Giggles Thanks for sharing!!

great shots of a life in the day of Aimee! I think the abandoned gas station would indeed make a fab little studio. I've always loved Victorian style houses and so love walking thru Cape May where there are so many.Love your repeat pattern too!
