August Print of the Month (and an Inspired Image from me)

Hello, my name is Amy.

You can find me right here and at

This image comes from Fieryeyed on Etsy, it's called Across the Lane

It inspires me because I love the soft quality of light and knowing that she took the polaroid in Tuscany, an area of Italy that I adore. And I was there just about a year ago, so it brings up many wonderful memories (most of which involve food—gelato please!).

I particularly love that I can completely visualize myself walking down that road, on my way to enjoy a meal at an outdoor table with food friends, fresh food (perhaps a plate of freshly made pasta), and lots of wine.

It makes me feel hopeful.

The 3 words it conjures up are relaxed, warmth, and summer.

I decided to do my August print pick (one of my New Year's goals was to buy a printed piece of art from an independent artist each month) as an Inspired Image today since it's been over a year since I did one. I'm always asking others to do this like it's the easiest thing in the world, but I found out that it's not—it's actually difficult to capture the quality of an image in words. But I really like the process of trying and sharing lovely images. I absolutely love Jenifer's photography and highly recommend her blog Nectar & Light. Have a great weekend everyone and thanks so much for being here with me!
