Elf on the Shelf – Year 4, Day 1

For the 4th year running, December 1st brought the arrival of our Dey Family Holiday elf: “Rudy” Ruettiger! Night one he brought advent calendars with him, and left a quick message (using NHL Scrabble Tiles) for the Duders.

His adventures this year will be documented on Instagram, and shared on Pinterest. (Speaking of Pinterest, you can check out Ruettiger’s previous antics by going to his Pinterest board here, or scrolling back through the blog archives.)

Friday Favorite – Kodak Brownie

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again (and again, and again)… I love antique cameras! Here’s another photo of one of the ones in my collection: A Kodak Brownie Target Six-20.

Elf on the Shelf – Year 3, Day 1

We interrupt your regularly scheduled blog programming to bring you the Holiday Adventures of “Rudy” Ruettiger!  The Dey family was thrilled with 3rd annual arrival of our holiday elf this morning! He’s back!


And just to keep spirits on high, we went to visit Santa at the mall today. Deklan asked him for a Hummingbird feeder and a pair of track pants. Easton asked for a rubber ducky, a book, and an orange lollipop. How awesome are these Duders?!

Friday Favorites – Antique Camera

It’s Friday Favorites time. Can you guess what else I love? I love antique cameras!
For as long as I can remember, even as a child, there were cameras on display in my house. My Daddy is a photographer too, and he’s always had antique cameras around.
When Mister and I moved into our current home, we put up two large display shelves on either side of the fireplace in the living room. It’s the perfect spot to display some of my favorite decorations!

This Kodak Duaflex is the first of more than a few antique cameras that I’ll likely feature here from time to time.


How awesome is this camera. Don’tcha just wanna PIN it? Don’tcha!?

I [heart] Instagram

Here we go with I [heart] Instagram week #3! Hooray! And I’ve done a little research on how to imbed my Instagram posts… so I’m crossing my fingers that it works!

Monday was Remembrance Day. In honor of that, and of my Bunky, I posted this photo of a poppy quarter that I’ve held on to since I got it in 2008.

 #CreepyRonald graced us with his presence again this week for #CMGlimpse’s Thursday prompt: Hidden

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again… I love macro photography!  Saturday’s prompt was “Numbers” and it was the perfect excuse for me to get up close and personal with one of my antique Kodak cameras.  This is one of my favorite Instagram posts in a long time – and one of my most popular too.
