Beautiful photos…emotion in each shot/story. You are very talented–hoping you are putting together a book/collection…prints?

Thank you Ellie! And yes, I will be self-publishing a photography book in the new year. Stay tuned! :)

Hi Tammy. Your experiment is so inspiring, and I´m hoping to live that way some day. Think that it would be a lovely dream come true. I’m from Denmark and I follow (and show) your blog on mine. Love your beautyful photos and the atmosphere around all that you post. Thanks for sharing:).

I wanted to say alle the time how much I like your curtains. Reading through your archives lately, I realized they make your tiny home so much more cozy.
And your kitty is a beauty!!
Looking for the light on those short days, I really liked this post.

Your pictures are beautiful…as always! I have an iPhone 4S it surprises me with some great shots. I am in Colorado so snow pix are a fave of mine. Our last snow I took a shot of the snow falling from inside the car while my husband fill it up. I couldn’t believe it…each snowflake was amazing. Each flake looked just like those we cut from white paper in grade school and of course each one was different. Folks wonder about God and try to come up with all kinds of theories…but really the wonder of it all is in a tiny snowflake…only God.

Have a blessed day Tammy and keep those lovely pictures coming.

Love the one of your kitty…so calm…so regal…so adorable.

Beautiful shots as always, Tammy! I love the scale of the mug to the house, and the sun shining through the barn door.

I just want to call your cat Mr. Chubbles b/c he looks so cute! I love your pictures. They are a like a daily breath of fresh air as I sit in my cube at work!

For a while I’ve been trying to live with less, and the more I try, the more it feels right!!

Thank you!!
