Grow Your Blog

Welcome Grow Your Blog friends...

I Hate Selfies....

I am
hot sauce connoisseur
never remembering where I put that thing 
broccoli hater
i was sure it was here somewhere 
suburban girl
italian food junkie
retired soccer mom
soon to be empty nester
i know it was in a really good place 
vintage collector
history buff
what was i looking for again
easily distracted
day tripper
mountain lover
solitude seeker
memory keeper

I'd Rather Be Behind the Camera

pretty much the opposite
of the Mr. Engineer I married
who always knows where he puts everything.
Once every 6 months or so Mr. Engineer reads my blog
and finds out where I've trespassed,
what I've photographed,
and the secrets I've revealed.
That's when the fun begins...

Day Dreaming

Seeking to be inspired 
inspire others. 

2 Bags Full

The Party's Here! Where I am linking these days.

I think you did GREAT with your selfies :) You have to do what you are comfortable with, and this was perfect. I always put things in that "special place" what I need to work on is keeping the special place the same every time.

i know you don't like to be in front of the camera, but i love the first photo and the last photo is WONDERFUL... it says daydreamer perfectly and is also beautiful as are you... you must have used a tripod and timer OR did mr Engineer snap this one... i enjoyed your list of who you are... some of them apply to me. I say bring on the selfies... i am a bread junkie... that food group includes Pizza

Hi Rebecca, - stopping by to say hello from the Grow Your Blog Party - your photographs are beautiful and I

James said...

I think there is a difference between the occasional self portrait and continuous selfies that scream "look at me, I need attention!". I prefer the former. Your photos are very nicely done.

Roxi H said...

This describes me to a T. My hubby is a spread sheet maniac. I meant to get in on Grow Your Blog this time and missed it. Thanks for visiting mine today. Your photography is gorgeous.

Phoebe | Lou Messugo said...

I love the way you describe yourself and had a chuckle over the husband reading once a$every 6 months! I know the feeling! Visiting for GYB and very happy to find your lovely photos. I've followed you.

Maggie said...

Such a clever way to share yourself with us, very intriguing. Visiting from Normandy, France (a volunteer and participant in the lovely Miss Vicki's GYB Party 2015),

You throw a great party. Thank you for inviting me!

So that you know, I've become a Follower and when time permits, I'll be back to see what other beautiful things were made by your hands!

What this party is all about is to GROW your blog and I'm hoping to do the same. When you get to Section One, check out A Country Chic Retreat and SuZeQ Creations, my personal blog, in Section Fifteen I'd love for you to follow and subscribe to.

Happy crafting!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

You have a sense of humor I can totally relate to. I also love your photos. Creating them in B & W made them even more appealing to me. You can be assured I'll be back OFTEN.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

OH GOODNESS!! I almost forgot. I'm getting as absent minded as you (grin). I really enjoyed visiting your blog. It was a genuine treat.

Roses, Lace and Brocante said...

Hello Rebecca

It's lovely to meet you at Vicki's GYB party!
I enjoy many of the same things as you, especially photography! And I'm always looking for things I've misplaced!
I join a photography meme weekly called Mosaic Monday, we would love you to join us, let me know if you would like more info!
I am following you too Rebecca!

Enjoy the party and I'll be back to visit again once the party quietens down!

There are so many new interesting people to meet and so little time!

Rebecca I love that you let your images speak for you and you introduced yourself with a list. Sometimes there are just too many words in the world. Susan

I've enjoyed reading and looking and yes real footballs are definitely round.
I am now following.


Carole @ From My Carolina Home said...

What beautiful photographs! My husband is one of my followers and reads almost every post. He has found out more about quilting and crafting in the last year than he ever wanted to know!! I read your line below the comment form, and you'll have a few clicks to get to my real blog (should you choose to try, LOL), I am only on blogger so I won't be a no-reply. Google doesn't play nice with Wordpress.

Julie said...

Rebecca, I like your captioning and background telling the story with your pictures. Never would have found you with GYB--so a new follower for sure. Impressive concept.
