Hello everyone! I’ve been busy the last few days trying to clean up from the remains of Christmas and New years as well as learning how to work my new Nikon D90! I’m so excited about my new camera…and also, a little afraid!
It is quite intimidating to look at (oops, should have shown you all a pic of it, but I’m sure you all have the general idea.)
I’m up to my ears in aperature, depth of field, shutter speed and whatnot, hardly know what any of that means but I’m working on figuring it out!
I’v also been working on tuning up this blog but have to admit I am so computer illiterate! I still have to make a button and don’t have a clue how to do it, (If any of you know an EASY way of describing how to do it I’d sure appreciate it.) Kristin at My uncommon slice of Suburbia just posted some how to’s which were great but I’m still not understanding the whole button thing, its very frustrating.
I thought I’d better change my header due to all the Christmas content, and just used some of my practice pics. I may change it again as I take new pics
Here is Butters my little chihuahua, how adorable is that little face?
Yes…yes, I STILL have some greenery up in the kitchen.
Ok, this pic was taken the other night and it is not very good I know but I was too lazy to take another and wanted to show you all my garbage find. I seen this ladder by the side of the road while Butters and I were walking the other night and had to take it home. It is a pale grey with chippy paint and apparently belonged to “Dale” lol
My husband seen it standing there in the morning and said “what a find!” I thought he would just say “oh you found some more garbage” I was so impressed that he could appreciate the vintage aspect of my little find! He is learning!
BTW, the greenery and Christmassy stuff is all down from the family room.
I love that ladder! Congrats on the great find- and the pictures with the new camera look fantastic!
The Camera is amazing! I'm a bit jealous =) Love your little furry friends too! Very cute.

I could immediately tell a difference in your pictures. Your new header is so pretty. Good luck on making a button. It was a frustrating process for me. Your furry friends are adorable. Good deal on the ladder, too. Love that it has a name on it… cool! Nice that the hubby is on board. Mine doesn't even ask anymore, ha! Have fun, Kim! xx
Congratulations on your new camera! Your header photos are wonderful. I have a Nikon too, and I really enjoy using it. It is going to be fun to see all your beautiful photography.

Great new header! Great photos, too! And your sweet furbabies are just adorable! That ladder was such an awesome find! The ones that you run across by chance are always the best! Love greenery against your white…. 🙂
Love your header!! I have had my camera for almost a year and still don't quite understand all the whistles and buttons! Your pictures look great so far! I love butters and Jack, they are so precious!! Dales ladder looks perfect and way to go hubby for coming around! 🙂 Oh and Sneaky Mamma Blog Design might have some good directions for the button:
I have to make another one and forgot how I did the first one. Sometimes I just google is and use a couple different directions. 🙂 Good luck and if you need more help I can try to help you.
Very nice photos! Can't wait to see what projects are in store!
Fab photos! Butters is so cute I had to laugh out loud!

Oooooh, your pictures are sooo nice!!!
YAY to new cameras…. I know exactly how you feel though… no idea how to work mine either.
That ladder is a great find. I've been looking for one for-ever to put on a huge wall at the top of our stairs. 🙂
