Barb "JinkyArt", and corners of our home

There are little corners of our home I'd like to share over a few posts, it is definitely a work in progress....we would like to paint the walls a paler shade of white, replace some of the carpet, lift up other areas and expose the floorboards, hang vintage chandeliers, we are still hunting through second hand shops and garage sales for furniture to fill the corners that are a bit will take time, and is oh so much fun. 

I thought I'd start in the lounge.  We've recently had a couple of the JinkyArt photos framed - and I wanted to share them with Barb.  If you haven't already come across Barb's website, you must take a look - this lady is amazing.  A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.  I still cannot believe we have photos of our little ones taken by Barb (more can be seen here) - I have been a fan for years and when we planned  a trip to Canberra at the start of the year, at the top of the list was to book a JinkyArt session.  When we pulled up to the location, my heart skipped a beat, and I wouldn't be surprised if Shannon told you I actually squealed.  A divine rocking chair, apples strung from the trees, vintage little horse and cart...seriously, heaven.  And the kids had a ball. 

This photo hangs above the main couch.  It is my favourite.  I had taken the butterflies with me in their little birdcage as a possible prop, and Barb's wonderful assistant Megan hung them in the branches.  The session was just for the kids, but Barb snuck this photo in, and I cannot express how much it means to me.  I am the one always behind the camera, so have only a small handful of photos with me and the kids.  I think maybe Barb knew that.  Thank you Barb!

Head over to the website to have a look at more of Barb's divine work, but be warned, you will be there for hours.....oh, and make sure you watch the video at the start, it is....well...go see for yourself....
