The distressed collection features photography that has many of my shabby-chic, country and cottage style home decor friends in mind. Many collections have three prints that were processed together to serve as a wonderful focal point for any room.
Shabby chic furnishings are often heavily painted through the years, with many layers showing obvious time-worn areas.
This photo collection works the same way. I personally photograph and created my own textures to apply and rub off the photos to create unique digital works of art.
The style is imitated in faux painting using a glaze or by painting then rubbing and sanding away the top coat to show the wood or base coats, known as “distressing” the finish of the furniture.
I have blogged about a few of the designs here.
Morning Verglas Crystal Prints:
Figured a wonderful way to start New Year off was to get up early and photograph the sunrise. When you decide moving two cars to get your own out of the driveway is too much work in sub zero temps – you find a way to create a different kind of art.
The extra frost from the glistening window panes created 3 different winter abstract views and as a bonus, NO musical cars.
Gorgeous Sandy Beach Hideout Collection
Can’t think of a place I’d rather be at the present moment. This gorgeous sandy beach hideout along the shores of New Smyrna, Florida was a beautiful walk.

Take a Chance & Strive to Become Better Than We Are – Sweet Simple Things
Pastel beach set. “When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.” ― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
Beach serenity and solitude. The salty spray in the air, the warm sand between your toes and beautiful landscape and ocean creatures around you. Heaven on Earth.
Fields of Plenty
Every blade of grass has its Angel that bends over it and whispers, ‘Grow — grow!’ This collection has been processed thoughtfully with the following quote in my head: The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.” – Masanobu Fukuoka.
Hopefully, you will agree that the message was conveyed through the photos and the story has unfolded through the set.
The images can be purchased vertically or horizontally.
Sweet Fields Barn
Almost 100 years of rain, sleet, snow and baking summer sun have taken its toll on this Wisconsin structure. Yet, she stands tall and strong in the sweet fields she calls home. Affirming her commitment to the land.
The current owner has appreciation and admiration to preserve this classic style barn. Staying true to her original framework and even going as far as using the white washed paint technique from the period, when its time came to restore her timeless beauty.
This image adequately depicts the landscape of the country. When you own this photograph, you will really enjoy it. An investment piece that will make you proud every time you gaze upon her. Making it difficult not to smile and feel the pride that went into building America strong and proud.
A winter walk around the harbor yielded a variety of images that I have chosen four to show here. If you want to see the blog post on the day it is titled: Winter Bliss.
Stride Away Barn
Dotted throughout the countryside in the Midwest are barns donning beautiful hand painted barn quilts.
What is a barn quilt? Well, it isn’t a full-size quilt. It is generally a single quilt block pattern painted onto a piece of wood that measures 8 feet.
After they are painted they are hung on exteriors of barns and outside structures. Barn quilt patterns vary. The majority are comprised of simple geometric shapes, like squares, rectangles and triangles.
Some are creative. Telling a story. They honor your heritage.Dotted throughout the countryside in the Midwest are barns donning beautiful hand painted barn quilts.
