{ Down in the holler }

Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains
Shenandoah River,
Life is old there
Older than the trees
Younger than the mountains
Blowin’ like the breeze

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain momma
Take me home, country roads

All my memories gathered ’round her
Miner’s lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine
Teardrops in my eye

I hear her voice
In the mornin’ hour she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
And drivin’ down the road I get a feelin’
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday

Take me home, now country roads…

Beachy-full_FINAL

Showing off the sunny side of Shiny Shabby with a dash of Summerfest thrown in and a sneak peek at some new “Sunning” poses w/prop towel from oOo Studio coming out this week for Fifty Linden Fridays!  GizzA also has these fanceh new shades that I just love (cuz I like to be fanceh 😀 ).  Which also happened to pair well with the gorgeous new Mohio jewelry set from Empyrean Forge.  And for indecisive girls like me, they both come with color-changing HUDs to match your look for the day. Yay!  Go get your beach on!
