Any Day Now!

Our family is anxiously awaiting the arrival of Adalei Grace, due to join us any day now! She is our third grand child and we are just as excited about her arrival as we were the first two. I can hardly wait to hold her and tell her I love her; to bond with her as I did with Bradyn and Layla and to watch her grow. Don't little ones grow so fast!
I knitted a blanket to bundle Adalei in and a cap and socks to keep her warm. It gives me great joy to knit for my grands and already have a sweet little sweater pattern picked out to knit for Adalei ... looking forward to getting started on it as soon as I finish some Christmas projects in the works.
If you would like to have a sneak peak of Adalei, please visit Lindsey's blog at There you will see some recent ultra sound pics of Adalei. It is amazing at the details you can see! She has the sweetest little mouth and the shape of her eyes are so pretty.
We also have maternity pics of Lindsey on our blog at so check them out. Rodney wrote the sweetest article too. Make sure you have a tissue handy, you will need it!

A new baby is like the beginning of all things - wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities.

A Week in a Different World ... or So It Seemed!

Last week was the bi-annual High Point Market, an international furniture market that has been going on for ages in High Point, N.C.. We,( Autumn Song Photography) had the pleasure of photographing the HOUSE BEAUTIFUL magazine party. House Beautiful really knows how to throw a beautiful party and what a great staff! It was an honor for Lindsey and I to be there and so much fun to see all the people that attended.
Stephen and Kate with HOUSE BEAUTIFUL, Barclay Butera, Marietta Gomez, Barry Dixon, Raymond Waites, Annie Selk, Thomas Jayne ... just a few of who was there!

I also had the pleasure of working for Randall Tysinger of Randall Tysinger Antiques during the week of market.
I worked for Randall years ago before opening an art gallery and was delighted when he called to ask if I would help out ... not only to be surrounded by the beautiful antiques but also the opportunity to meet people. (If you know me at all you know I love people, all kinds of people!)
Randall has the most amazing eye for European antiques. Designers and homeowners, both nationally and internationally, visit Randall to purchase antiques. Barry Dixon, Marrietta Gomez and Raymond Waites, internationally renowned designers, are clients of Randall Tysinger Antiques.
Here are a few photos of some of the antiques. It was a little difficult to shoot in the showroom because of spot lights and track lighting but at least you can get the gist of my surroundings.

This is an English pine cupboard, Circa 1880. I am really, really wanting this cupboard for my breakfast room! I will add this to my wish list ... Santa?

Now back to the real world ... of which I love too! Good times with my family and our photography business ... and, oh yes, knitting ... I have so many projects going for Christmas! I will share those on another post. Thanks for visiting and have a blessed week.
