Erica Tanov spring/summer 2009

March 31, 2009

I flit about…much like a hummingbird, but without the metabolism to go with it (thanks for the simile susan).  Due to all my flitting, I often miss things.  This is the case with the beautiful spring/summer collection from Erica Tanov….perfection.  

The photographs, the styling, the model (you have heard it all before)…oh yes, and the clothes are quite lovely as well:
thank goodness I have more focused friends to remind me and keep me still from time to time…thank you jill

when flickr and etsy bump into one another good things happen…

March 31, 2009

Like blogging, flickr is this crazy world of amazingly talented folks, putting their heart and soul out there on display.  Typically what comes back is support, kind words and doorways to beautiful new lives seen through the eyes of lens.  

I have gotten to “know” such an amazing group of photographers through flickr and feel as if when flickr friends take that step, deciding to sell their work, I am right there hoping for oodles of success and proud of them for putting it out there in that way.

Which is why it is such a pleasure for me to introduce you to some of those special gals right now…I have long admired their photographs and am so happy to share with you their new etsy shops.  

Do yourself a favor and get lost in their links….

a blissful residence…

March 31, 2009

Here’s the deal…the frenches found a house.  As many of you know, I have wanted a new french residence for quite sometime.  The mister on the other hand has found many creative ways to change the subject…this weekend we walked through one that was just right.  The mister actually agreed!  It needs quite a bit of work, but the visions and dreams are there.  Many things have to line up (planets, stars and such), before this is possible, but a girl can dream.  

I am torn between “if you put it out there it just may happen” and jinxing it…so I have decided to put it out there in a tiny way.  This photograph is from that home, but that’s all I am comfortable divulging at this time…send the positive vibes this way won’t you?  I will keep you posted!!!
