The Old & The New Unite

It is an interesting blend… The old with the new. It’s a combination that brings me great joy in my design… Vintage elements revised and repurposed with a new trendy life.

So on this Sunday afternoon, I attend Sawyer’s Boy’s Choir concert.. We received very few details about the concert, one of about 40 concerts this year. It is called Sanctuary, his call time was 1:30 and the concert at 3:00pm.

It is held in The Great Hall at St. Johns University. As I wait for the concert to start, I enjoy browsing the program.


Sanctuary, A Celebration in Word, Image, and Song.

The old and the new struck me in this photo… A beautiful old setting… New technology… An interesting combination .


The Great Hall is amazing!


The incredible ceilings…


And the boys choir singing their first song…


It was a beautiful concert that celebrated the completion of the St. John’s Bible, mixing three choirs.

It did get a tad long and I so wish I could capture a photo of the front row of the 12-14 year old boys… Heavy heads resting on both hand, elbows to their knees, it almost made me laugh out loud, they are so adorable!

I promised to share some photos from the Muffin Tin Challenge…


I wish you could physically see this bracelet, the photo doesn’t do it justice.
It is one of my all time favorites.




I Hope you have a day filled with sunshine!
Kris ๐Ÿ™‚

Ps… I forgot to show you the stunning sunset as we were driving home!

  4. Thanks for sharing Sawyer’s program, the new pieces and your wonderful sunsets. I think that one of the things we creative types do is to take in the world in a little different way than “normal” people, seeing the beauty and the way things relate in everything. Thanks for sharing your observations!
