Blog Inspiration and B&W Sunday


Today I wanted to share a great blog,  Na-Da Farm Life with Anne Marie. My sister-in-law sent me a link after meeting Anne Marie. Dacia knew that I would love the site, and it’s true, I absolutely love it. It’s a real breath of fresh air in the blog world.

Anne Marie and her family do the homesteading thing and she shares her life through blogging about the farm and family, composing beautiful observations on life, and posting her gorgeous photography and an occasional video. Oh, yeah, and she has chickens!

I really admire blogs like hers, which really speak, and have content and substance. I compare it to my own, and I’m left thinking Inspiration Junkie looks an over-eager 7 year old, arm flailing in the air,  “Look at what I made, look at what I made!”

Anne Marie does a post each Sunday called Black and White Sunday where she invites others to share their own black and white photography.  Since I wanted to share with you the wonderful Na-Da Farm Life blog, I thought I’d also take the opportunity to contribute to B&W Sunday as well. This afternoon I just had to get out of the house for a walk and took my camera along. The pictures in this post are the results of my jaunt, you can click on them to see them bigger over at flickr.

If you are interested in reading more of Anne Marie’s posts I encourage you to check out these posts below.  They have really inspired me lately.

Anne Marie’s oldest daughter requested a handmade dress and you can see the results in this post: Innocence

The Na-Da Farm way of life may give the impression that they live a simpler life, but in actuality it’s just richer. A kind of life I would love. Although I’m sure it’s not all just sitting in the prairie pastures watching clouds and listening to the birds. One can dream. Prairie Walk

Anne Marie invited readers to recreate in photography a favorite old painting, and although the deadline has passed, it might still be fun to do: Disguise Fete

Now, before I sign out I just thought I’d mention that tomorrow is the last day of August and the last day of my month long challenge to create a new piece of artwork daily. This month has sure spun by quickly. I can’t believe it will already be September. Fall is right around the corner.

I like to share my Artwork online at and on my own personal website I also have an online shop where you can find more of my "crafty" sorts of things, as well as a random piece of artwork here and there. Oh, and I'm also an occasional contributor to Artomat (

  1. Love the picture of your shoes. I remember when you shared your process for making them :) I am still working on my Mim @ 40 journal that I made this month. I will be working on it for a little while ;) It is fitting that today- the last day of the month- is the first day of school for me. The last picture in the book will be a picture of my children’s first day (9th and 3rd grades!)

    Thanks for sharing!
