Garden Note #72: Anemone

I knew that by the time I got back from my trip to North Carolina the Anemone blossoms in the garden would be gone. Over the weekend I made a huge bouquet for myself to enjoy.

Wedding Inspiration- Vintage Photo #2

I enjoy searching through Ebay and Flickr for pictures of complete strangers and their weddings. Here’s one from 1940 that I like. It’s a nice candid shot of the bride and groom with their friends posing in front of a classic Ford car. The image has some personal touches- it’s hand painted (with pink flowers/ dress and blue neckties) and is framed in an Art Deco inspired mat.

Nibs Fashion Photo Shoot #6

I’ve passed this old yellow house countless times and always with the thought of using it as a backdrop for some fashion photos. Last weekend I got together with friends Hillary, Hope and Margot for an impromptu clothing session- all of us brought a bunch of stuff from our closets. Margot put on her ‘Mamas & Papas’ tape and before long Hillary (left) and Hope (right) were dressed in 1970’s inspired outfits. And I knew just where I wanted to photograph them!
