Rustic/Distressed Wood Signs

I’ve decided to give me hand at woodworking this weekend and these turned out rather lovelier than I expected. The “but first, coffee” and the mirror is plywood, the anchor design is on wood and the “Love is the new black” is on a re purposed cabinet door.

West Geyser Thumb Basin

These are my two lonely pictures from the West Geyser Thumb Basin. As I’d been there before in 2009 (winter), we decided not to walk around the entire area and only take a couple snapshots before moving on.

The Fishing Bridge in Yellowstone, Wyoming
