wish list

I've been trying to decide what I want for christmas this year and I'm actually having a bit of a hard time. There's several little things I want, there's not really one that sticks out the most. (except for this anthropologie dress which my husband already got for me early.) Well here's what I've come up with so far:

a typewriter painting from

a vintage blue typewriter

one of these toadstool lamps from pomme shop

contempt dvd from

edward scissorhands on blu-ray

le petite prince book from

the little black dress: vintage treasure book from

ornaments all from

artistic block

I've made a few new pieces lately, but I'm really only happy with one of them. I've been coming up with ideas, but having a hard time executing them in a way that I'm happy with. I hate when that happens, very frustrating. That's actually how I got into photography in the first place. I went through a two year block as a painter and inevitably changed my medium for awhile. I finally got some inspiration from some birch logs and eventually came up with this. Hopefully I'm out of my artistic block for now.

where the wild things are (at my shop)

I recently fell in love with these reusable bags. When I got a set, I fell in love with them even more. I've become a walking advertisement for them. I also got my mom a set. They come in so many beautiful colors (it's hard to choose!) and they are so durable and easy to carry.

I just got this movie "daisies" from my netflix. I heard about it online and the visual imagery alone is worth at least one viewing. It's a czech movie made in the sixties and not a lot happens, but it is so visually stimulating. I went back after watching a second time and took a few shots of my tv screen. They would be amazing photographs.

Yes we did

Yesterday was such an amazing day for the United States. I feel sorry for anyone who can't see how amazing this is. (Living in Georgia, I'm surrounded by a lot of them.)

a few more

My living room was clean for a brief period so I can now add pics of it. My studio looks like several boxes of paper threw up all over the floor, so it may be awhile on that room.

house photos

My house was semi clean yesterday and the light as good so I decided to take some shots of a few rooms. I want to have a set of the whole house at some point. Anyway. here are a few rooms of my house:

dining room

dining room/ kitchen



favorite part


guest room


master bedroom (bed is a little messy)

still need: living room, bathroom, porch, studio and sewing room (both studio and sewing room are a complete disaster right now, so I have no idea when they will ever be nice enough to photograph.)

birds and new pieces

We had a lovely halloween. Carved pumpkins with my parents, got thai food had a friend over and watching poltergeist with a fire going and hot chocolate. I made two new pieces of shots of me in my costume. Not sure if I'm going to add either of them to my shop or not.
