can't remember if i've posted
this shot already!

this is the problem with
having all your old photos
and scans on a computer
that was stolen...
you feel like you're
losing your mind!

in other news,
it's the 
last day for my giveaway!
i would seriously love
any and all input,
so don't be shy!

definitely not a polaroid.

ok, so
i wimped out on this one,
mainly because
i love instagram
and i haven't synched
my new macbook pro (!!!)
with c's old computer
(meaning i have
no saved photos except what's
already on my tumblr...)

hopefully that will happen soon,
but in the meantime,
feel free to follow me on instagram!
i'm (predictably) @polaroid_dreamer.

ps.  only five more days for my giveaway!!

a very merry unbirthday.

i think this one
will make the cut
for prints to be
made up.
(battered old ford, winder, ga)


last night i had
my 29 and a 1/2th
birthday party.
it's the first birthday party
i've had in years,
and it was so much fun,
and made me so happy.

i think i'm going to celebrate this way
every year!

just got back...

so i'm back home
after visiting ottawa
for a minor eyelid
(totally awful!)
that has left me looking
pretty beaten up...
but hopefully with
better sight.
i've got my first
training session
at my new p/t job
tomorrow -
wish me luck!

atlanta was such a beautiful,
fun city.

it was unlike
anything i expected it to be - 
i'd been told to worry about
the heat,
the humidity,
the segregation...

but it turned out to be
one of the nicest,
prettiest, lushest
i've ever been.

i can't wait to go back...

picture time! (a giveaway...) edit: closed now!

some of you already know this,
but i'll be opening my etsy store soon,
full of polaroids,
photo prints,
and pretty jewels

i've got a few polaroids in mind
that i'd love to see
larger than life
(and they are going to be big - think 16 x 20 and up!),
but i'd love to have
your input 
on which shots
you love the best!

let me know which ones you love...
and you might just win yourself
a copy of that polaroid!

simply pick which shots
you love the best
and leave your contact information
in the comments below!

(...i'll be using a random
number generator to help select
the winner.)

i'm leaving this contest open
until july 1st
(canada day!)
so those lucky folks on vacation
have time to catch this.

and please feel free to re-post the giveaway:
the more the merrier!

thanks for all your support!

edit: this giveaway is closed now.


move on from sadness,
move on from sorrow,
move on,
move on.

a quick note on canada's (lack of) democratic procedure.


how is a budget bill
the place for large-scale
environmental policy change?

...i'm in shock
at how few people
are protesting this!

it's starting to feel
like a dictatorship,
here in canada...
with the people in power
doing whatever they
want to,
and whatever
lines their pockets

this country is going
to the dogs...

shining stone

one of the places we visited
in atlanta
was a cemetery,
full of crumbling tombstones,
beautiful mausoleums,
and flowers everywhere.

this shot is of a crown,
carved in stone
on the underside of a doorway
(though it got bleached out
by the film).

gratuitous cat shot.

evie (formerly evil),
possibly the sweetest cat
i've met in ages.

and here she looks like a ghost!

the bride.

the wedding was wonderful,
filled with laughter
and family
and fun.

my new cousin-in-law
is such a beautiful woman,
and i'm so happy that she's
part of our family now.
the gloves are her late grandmother's,
from her grandmother's own wedding day,
given for the express purpose
of ensuring her grandmother
would be with the her (in spirit)
on her wedding day.
(and the boots were just
too pretty to ignore!)
