Meet my new niece, Emma.

I have another new family member (If it seems that has happened more then once lately, it has.  My two sisters and one sister-in-law have had babies this fall, plus I have another sister-in-law due in January). 
Meet my sister Becky’s beautiful daughter, Emma Mariah.
I asked Becky if I could take some newborn photos of Emma, but what about the props?
Welcome to my world of trash, where anything I need, even baby girl photography props can be found somewhere in my house because I’ve just purchased them at a garage sale or thrift store.

So much of the time I buy trash, not knowing why, just knowing I love it and will use it later.

I look in my garage and find some sweet trash.
Eden’s room is full of ideas too.

Here’s what I came up with (not sure if I'll use it all). 

I paid $2.00 for the vanity chair, $1.00 for the basket, .50 cents for the wreath, tweed-knit bird was $4.00, flower pots were .50 cents each, watering  can $2.00 and the green apples came with a vase I purchased for $1.00.
Let's put this stuff to the test.
This little girl is just too sweet.
Becky couldn't be happier.  Both these girls glow.
This is my sister's first daughter.  I'm so happy for her.


  1. Congratulations! She is breathtaking!

  2. *Awwww* Emma is PRECIOUS!
    Congratulations to the family.
    The pictures are lovely.

  3. Laura:

    Photos are gorgeous.

    So nice to see you and meet 3 of your beautiful kids in person today! Always happy to see your kind smile.

    Take care!
