Paisley's first photo shoot with Give me props Photography and "I'm having a garage sale on Saturday"

Hi everyone!

Life here at the reno ranch has been crazy, crazy, crazy since I last checked in.
We have 3 major projects in the house and two outside!
If that were not enough....I decided to participate in the town wide garage sale....
THIS Saturday!
and I made this decision....YESTERDAY!

Yep, I've lost it!
I haven't held a garage sale in years....and never without my daughter April to help!

But yesterday, she and Paisley were quite busy!
They hung out with Jennifer Banda,
a wonderful photographer who just happens to be
The daughter of my dear friend Deb of talkin trash 
Jennifer's business is called Give me Props Photography . If you get a chance, popover and like her facebook page!
Here is a sneaky peek at Paisley's first photo shoot!

I will let you see more on Friday after I return home from
The French Market in Tipton.

Have a wonderful rest of the week! I'm off to gather more stuff for the garage sale!


  1. Oh she's a doll! I'll bet you got so many great photos that it was hard to choose just one.

  2. Donna, I just melt every time I look at this photo. She is absolutely the most beautiful baby. Jenn had the best time with her and April. It didn't seem like work, but more like play time...she's such a good baby.
    Girl, you're gonna meet yourself somewhere coming and going...I swear!
    Looking forward to next month.
    Miss you and love you,

  3. She's adorable! Beautiful photography work. Sounds like you're having a fantastic summer.

  4. Donna, It was so nice to see you again. I love those baby pictures. Paisley sitting in that suitcase is precious. Hope your sale went well. I went back to Horton's to see if I had missed anything. Blessings to you and your family, xoxo,Susie

  5. I apologize for being off topic (your post) but I found you via Pinterest (LOVE your boards!) then clicked onto your blog... LOVE!! Excited to see more. :)

  6. Hi sweetie,
    I have been such an awful friend! How did I miss this darling picture of Paisley? My gosh---she's as beautiful as her mommy! (and her mommy's mommy!) What a blessing she is to your family. Don't you just love being a grammy???
    I sure hope you are doing great Donna. Things here are fine and don't change much from day to day, so new news from here.
    love you so much,


Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to leave me a comment!
I love reading them~they truly make my day!
