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.

A Fall Break

Nibs Readers,

This is just to let you know that I’ll be away for the next two weeks visiting my family in North Carolina.

Posting will resume November 2.

Warm regards,

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!
