Thanks for stopping by.  I'm Kathy (Kat) Merrett and I created my website in an attempt to share those things that I am most passionate about.  Take a look around and feel free to leave me a note in the Guestbook.

The Latest

  Life has a funny way of pulling me in many different directions, so I never know from one minute to the next what I'll be doing!  My photo gallery features pics from recent happenings.  Everything from a trip that I might have taken to an afternoon walking our property in search of my favorite "critters".


Go ahead and see for yourself!

Recently my husband John called to ask for my help on a project that he was working on.  A neighbor had given him several old doors. Two of them were in pretty bad shape along the bottom.  John being quick to see potential when others might not, simply cut the bottom 1/3 off of each door.  He also cut out the inset panels, 3 on each door.  I was asked to look back through my photos that I have taken here at Dale Hollow Lake over the past several years and choose 6 different ones.  John had told me the size of the prints that he would need.  His only other stipulation was that they be printed in black and white.  He then sent me a picture of the doors.  At this point I also shared the picture of the doors with our youngest daughter Casie.  She loved the vision that her Daddy had for the project, but insisted that our prints should be sepia.

Now came the hard part....picking only 6 pictures.  This was, to say the least, a daunting task.  After a few days and countless hours I had narrowed my choices down to 10.  I wanted to have a few back up pics just in case.   I must admit that there are times when I question my husband's thought process.  I can also admit that I really never should!  His project(s) were a success.  They are both stunning!  Then again, I am bias!  I'll leave you to make your own decision.
