Hello! Along with my love for cooking and collecting cook books and recipes... I have a deep love for nature and animals (finned, feathered, or furred...I love them all). I love anything and everything to do with the outdoors. I also enjoy (way too much) going to flea markets/antique shows, antique shops, and auctions. Picking up all sorts of things that I can't seem to live without (or use). I enjoy working in my flower beds and yard....where I'm often found lurking about with my digital camera in hand. My photo subjects include; our three dogs, our cat, flowers, and any and every creature that happens to be in my path.
