Flower Girl

"Every flower is a soul
blossoming in nature."
             ~Gerard de Nerval

   The last week of summer - I have had so many ideas all summer long of photographs that I wanted to take. Summer themes and photoshoots that I never had the time to bring to life. When I realized on monday that this sunday is September first I decided that I had to try and do at least one of my ideas. I had been waiting for a friend to help me but instead I relied on my trusty tripod and took the pictures myself. I have seen so many beautiful photos lately of floral crowns. They are all over pinterest and etsy! Beautiful wreaths made out of flowers being worn by brides and models, hung from shelves, and standing in whimsical piles. I love them and I have wanted to make one and use it as a prop for awhile. I watched youtube videos trying to learn how the fairytale decorations were made and eventually sat down and tried to make one. I have used it in my photoshoot - the last photoshoot of summer and I hope you all enjoy the finished result. 

I have also added two new special items to the Etsy Shop. A beautiful fabric and lace box and an embellished lampshade. Have a peek!

A Few Little Treasures

"Let the beauty we love be
what we do."

    Summer is winding down - I can't believe how time flies. Only a week left! The mornings are cool now and the door to the deck, which used to stay open well into the evening, is getting shut much sooner every day. I am not ready to be cold! I feel like I could use another month of summer - or two. 

I have listed a few more little treasures in the Etsy Shop which I hope you will like! Enjoy the last of summer and have a wonderful weekend!

Little Pretties

"Love of beauty is taste.
The creation of beauty is art."
             ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

   Summer seems to be getting away from me! Already the middle of the month! I must enjoy every moment. I seem to be very busy lately running around haphazardly. Time to take a breath!
I have added more treasures to the Etsy Shop! Little pretty things I hope everyone will like. Take care everyone and enjoy the sunshine!

Fanciful Florals

"Flowers...are a proud assertion
that a ray of beauty outvalues all
the utilities of the world." 
            ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

    I don't know about everyone else but I love flowers! I envy those people who live in places where the weather seems designed to let the flowers bloom as long as possible. Where I live it seems like we have them for only a few short months. My house is full of flowers as a result - flowers that can be enjoyed year round! There are few rooms without them. I love to look at pictures and paintings of flowers too! I was inspired this week to do a photoshoot full of flowers and floral things and I had so much fun arranging everything and making pretty displays. I hope you like the end result! 

I have also added some new lovely treasures to the Etsy Shop! Be sure to take a look!
