McKay Art Photography

Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay


The only edit I did on this photo was the sign at bottom left, so you could see this was in Mississippi! Beautiful sun set that night.

Let It Rain!


Let it rain, let it rain
on the grape, on the grain;

in my heart, there's your smile,
that brings hope... life's worthwhile.

MacKay, Texas


I took this photo many years ago when we where driving to Corpus Christi ,Texas. I had the mister stop and go back to this old worn down building. The "A" from MacKay was gone and the place was empty.( I added the words art and photography)  In Texas you have almost every city name from around the world. No kidding....and this is our name McKay! The only thing about this town is what you are looking at, and this town is on the map!
Now that I'm back blogging, the art media I am diving into is snapping pictures.I'm still sick but everyone can snap pics....love it. So I hope you enjoy my photos. I decided to use this photo as my site pic.
Much love,
Rae

look terrible now!

Wanted to play around with my pics today, hippie colors!!
I just love this skirt from a resale shop...it's pink!

Soft Ivory Light


I often think of the color Ivory in the winter.
Some how it makes me feel warm! 
 

Does one wake each day to beauty?
Can I find it deep inside myself?

The color Ivory also makes me quiet.
A whisper through the halls
A light guiding me to rightness. 
 
 




Be quiet my soul


Keeping my eyes towards Heaven.
Much love

Brown Sugar and Blueberries



I've had a complete change in how I approach a wardrobe these days.
I love colors, and sometimes I would get stuck in wearing only blacks or whites.
I'm picking up on nature....God's colors.

I call this my brown sugar and blueberry out fit. 

Loving big chunky necklaces!!




Sweater tights and boots.

 

Yesterday the sky did clear, after some time of rain for days.
 
 
Until next time.....much love!

What I've been up to...


Well... I'm feeling so much better! Thank you all for your prayers, it means so much to me.
The picture of my breakfast room above, I have finally painted my old table white, a dear friend gave me the chairs so I painted them also. I can't say enough of how calming the room is now, I just feel happy in this room and I'm in it a lot...the family also!

So, as I've been resting and getting stronger, I've hung out in my pj's quiet a bit and became a great couch potato!

This table is in my kitchen, it's been in the family for years. Never thinking it would be the best cutting table ever. Even bread making. I remember my parents using it for just that as I was growing up and now I have  used it for raising up my children and some day they too will use this sweet old table in the same ways. We all love this little table. Now that it's the age it is, don't you just love the marking on it.....lovely!!
