L.Young Studio/my space













~storage is found everywhere...behind my antique sofa, that was originally purchased to sell at Chartreuse Pear..i just couldn't sell & brought it home...(at times i miss Chartreuse Pear...most of all i miss the friendships formed there).. is a table/work space/storage space...
~i love these deer mounts...when my boys were little, we took a family hunting trip to texas...what's important to them...deserves a place of honor with me...the wheat came from my grandparents farm in kansas...my son gave me a signed book from the blue dog artist, george rodrigue...
~i love my family...so i always want to have an inviting spot for them...these chairs/ottoman came from my parents home in houston...growing up, my mom would study her bible each morning in these chairs..now, it's where my husband joey reads his bible each morning...i love my vintage china...love it!...this armoire is filled with supplies..i handpainted it many years ago, as i did with other pieces in the room...the pheasant feathers were from a family pheasant hunt in missouri...
~..this big, beautiful desk is from my father's office...you can't see it, but there is a beautiful rush seated french chair behind the desk...it makes me feel special when i sit in it...currently, i have my louisiana collection hung behind my desk/computer/printer space...

Family Vacay in Destin

video

Vacation...time for some to relax...kick it back...that's how it is for my family. No schedules. Our time together is a treasure. Pictures? I took loads..but, only a handful of mini-videos..here's a clip using videos only...why do I like the videos? My Dad always filmed special occasions...to see my Grandparents...my youthful parents, playing with my brother & I on vacation...they are truly treasured by all..I have filmed my boys all throughout their lives...I love to view them, see them move, smile, cry, walk, crawl, laugh & talk....watching our family movies is always special...

Memorial Day Weekend 2010


Last summer, my son Nicholas had the opportunity to travel to Washington, D.C. with his Grandparents, & I got to tag-a-long.
A most memorable moment was our trip to The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington Cemetary...there we saw sacrifice, which is not a popular word because it comes at a cost. It reminded us to be thankful for the sacrifice of so many that came before us & of so many today...thankful for their generous gift of service & denial of self. I pray God's richest blessings on all....& I am thankful for freedom...freedom. God bless America.

The Hydrangeas are Blooming!

I love it when the first signs of summer arrive.....
it's that time...the garden's been planted..yesterday, I saw the first tassels appearing on the corn, the tomato bushes are loaded, the squash are in full bloom with big yellow blossoms, and my hydrangeas are displaying their beautiful fruits...in blues, pinks & lavenders..........
