CHRISTINA'S WORLD....my twist on it.

Hello darling followers and darling new followers.  So nice to have reached 200 today.  I am thrilled and wanted to take a moment to thank you for your more than generous comments that are so encouraging and heart warming.  I am so so grateful for each and every one of you.  If I have failed to visit you to thank you...please pardon me.  It was not intentional or personal.  You are all so individual and sweet, I consider myself fortunate to know you through this platform.  Lots of Love, stay encouraged and inspired.  dawn xo  Now on to my take of this painting by Andrew Wyeth....

This field is across the street from my house. The house in the photos is my next door neighbor.  Thank God I finished this shoot in time, they pulled up in their car.  These photos do not do this painting any justice, I have always wanted to do a shoot like this.  Since the people that own the property have moved out and the house is empty, I helped myself to their overgrown field.   My entire outfit is thrifted.  I am linking up to Thursday's are for thrifters at Spunky Chateau..drop in and check out what people are finding at the thrift stores.  Gucci boots less than $10, floral blouse $2,  striped sweater $3.99, skirt 3.99, Vintage pin on my collar .99cents.  Coach bag and anthro belt from their retail stores.

You're so creative in your outfits and out-look.
This is such a moving painting to capture in your own way. I particularly like the 4th photo. So happy I discovered your blog.

wow, you look lush and lovely as always! though that was an interesting choice of painting? I've always found its subject sad -- poignant and wistful -- and I would never think of you that way!

You look beautiful in these photos. How creative you are to even think of doing a photo based on that picture. I like the pattern mixing and those Gucci boots. If you ever run across another pair in a 7.5 or 8 pick them up for me! LOL
Thank you for sharing your world with us. I enjoy every one of your posts. Congrats on 200!
