The beauty of sepia ~












Don't you just love each and every shade of sepia?
Feel free to snag any of these images to use...

I've decided to try blogging in the morning
as I'm wanting to take much better care of myself
and go to bed at a decent time!!
I've heard and read that proper rest
is so very important to our health too.
It will be hard as I'm a TRUE night owl
but I'm giving it a go ~

Dawn, I love sepia!!! I am using it throughout Whit and JD's wedding. I finished the Save the Date card last night and their pictures are in sepia... Have to get the final approval from them of course!
Love you and thanks for sharing!

Dawn, Cumin really, really makes things taste DELICIOUS!!!

And I so agree about sepia! Old prints that have turned brown....nothing like them!

Thanks for the recipe! Sounds really yummy.

Laurie said...

I, too, love sepia, and I love to have photos printed in it or black & white, as I prefer the softness they present, and they go well with our old house. You have such wonderful images to share with us, and a delicious recipe, too! I love to visit your blog!

madrekarin said...

Lovely images, Dawn! That chicken dish looks divine. Perfect for a cold Winter's night.
Any sign of snowflakes at your house yet? There's none to be seen here. :(

Dawn,
The book with the beautiful handwriting is awesome! Love that stuff, can't get enough of it. I hear ya with the taking care of yourself stuff. I got the Ellie Krieger book for Christmas & I love her recipes. Healthy, but still yummy. I'm trying real hard to do her 12 week program. Good luck with the early to bed part! Lisa

Kim said...

Hello Vickie,
I'm new to this blogging stuff. I have visited your blog several times over this past week and this is my first post ever! Your blog is beautiful, and I love how you want to share so much. In today's world that is just so inspiring. I am in the works of designing my own blog.....

Rebecca said...

Love the images, Dawn.

I've lost 20 pounds on WW since October 1st. I follow it to a T...

Some days I'm HUNGRY because I haven't made good choices. Most days are GREAT.

I feel like a new person already and I'm finally beginning to recognize my FACE. Body...not so much yet!

Lori said...

in answer to your question:YES!!! i told you that i still had all my Christmas things out...there are several reasons for that...but one is that my things for the holidays are more natural and sepia toned, and i am SO loving that right now!!!

Sandi said...

Oh yes, sepia is beautiful and I just love such old handwriting! Back then they took their time to write notes and letters. Thanks so much for the lovely images, dear Dawn! And thanks for the recipe also! I love the taste of cumin and will try this within the next days.

It's after midnight at your place right now. Are you a good girl and in bed already ;-)?

Hugs and love,
Julia
