Tiptoe Through the Tulips

These are the last of the images from Afton Villa Gardens around the end of March. I debated heavily whether to post the little girls, so I made a compromise that only the ones where they are not facing the camera directly would be allowed on this post.





A little plug here:
My Etsy store is open for business! I am helping my dad sell his enormous collection of Indian artifacts. These are relics he has found and also purchased over the last 25 years. All are authentic to the best of his knowledge. Some of the arrowheads he fashioned into necklaces. As my dad goes through his collection I am photographing and adding them to the store.

If you're on Etsy I'd love it if you'd follow me and favorite at least one item in my store. I'll be happy to reciprocate. Not sure if there is a market for this kind of stuff, but I guess I'll find out! Thank y'all so much for all your support!

Beautiful photos. Checked out the site. Good luck with sales. I'm in the 'getting rid of stuff' phase of life, so not buying much other than food these days.

Oh my.... These are truly amazing! How perfect of a setting could you ask for in having these adorable girls in your photos. I hope you are selling some of your photos on your etsy page... These would be great!

I'm so glad you included the little girls in these images. They add so much to the over all picture, with their youth, their colorful dresses, and the little floral wreaths in their hair. The last shot, showing the road, trees, and flowers, is really lovely.

Wow! Looked through some of your dad's arrowheads--interesting. We look for gifts like that from time to time and I will keep your shop in mind. I added your Etsy link to my blog's links--prepare to bombarded with Internet traffic (ok, maybe not haha).

Your wonderful pics of the old trees reaching toward each other gives me such a nostalgic twinge for the deep South I grew up in. Such a lovely garden for a backdrop for the precious little girls all dressed up.

There is nothing more beautiful and more southern than live oaks with spanish moss hanging and hot pink azaleas!!! My gosh - that's beautiful!!!
