Little Things

Hi there! I'm sorry I've been a bit absent lately. I feel like my days are getting away from me. Where does the time go and why is it moving so fast lately?

Anyhoo, I haven't started on many house projects in the recent weeks because I have been busy trying to jump-start my photography business. It is going to be a long process but I am so very excited about delving further into my love of photography! So lately when I take a trip to the antique store or thrift store, I'm keeping my eyes open for props I can use in my shoots. Like these:

Aren't those wooden toys just precious? And who doesn't love Classic Pooh? The shabby chair was a great deal and I can't wait to use it in a shoot!

Oh, and I picked up this AMAZING vintage kitchen scale and my local antique store. Isn't it gorgeous? I've been dying to get my hands on one of these for a while now and they're either overpriced or not too pretty. This one was perfect!

Other than shopping for photography props and equipment, I'm trying to decorate my house for this awkward time of year. Is it just me, or does the few months of winter after Christmas seem to be weird to decorate for? It's winter, but it's not Christmas and I have to fight the urge to bust out the Spring decor. Hmmm...

One thing I have managed to accomplish is making a cute little ruffle runner for my front entryway table. Using a strip of dropcloth fabric and leftover linen strips from my ruffle Christmas skirt, this little project was super easy and I love the way it looks.

Hopefully, I can start getting back to my loooong list of house projects soon. Stay tuned!

I love this time of year. It allows for 'breathing room'. I put away all of the Christmas decor and my house looks.. well.. a little bare by comparison. But, I love it. It gives me a chance to breathe before I think about what holiday (Valentines, Easter) decor or Spring/Summer feel I want to have in the upcoming months.

It's an adjustment period in terms of decorating. It allows for all kinds of wonderful creative ideas to evolve! So, keep at your photography. It is gorgeous!!!! And, yes, that kitchen scale is warm, wonderful, loved, and beautiful.

Love your blog!
