I started collecting vintage ice buckets a couple of years ago.  I thought it might be fun to repurpose them, as vases.  They are ideal in size for a floral vignette, perfectly insulated.  I’ve dreamed of opening a lil vintage shop on Etsy , to sell my small vintage wares.  I’m hoping it will soon be coming to life.  Yippee !!

These are but a few of the items I’m planning to offer.  In that vein, I scooped up some flowers (using a bit of the faux floral goodness I sourced for the studio), some coffee and morning crumbly goodies.  Shannon and I played in the studio.  We had a lovely time.  Playing with the flowers, the display. I hear the rhythm of her shutter clicking, it’s sweet background noise.  You know the sound of joy, of anticipation (like the familiar shrill of kids playing in the pool). I have fun simply watching her work. She exudes creativity from the moment you set eyes on her.  The visuals that result from our time together, her eye, her ability to capture style, is nothing short of amazing.  To see more of her work, please visit her flickr stream.

We talked about doing more playful, stylizing shoots.  It’s hard to find time in our schedules, but this is so refreshing for me.  I am a huge fan of photostyling, as is witnessed through the content I’m prone to feature here.  

I’m hoping to have some initial goodies available in my lil etsy shop within the next few weeks.  If you have any wisdom or suggestions to share on selling wares on etsy, please comment or email me.  

Thank you for being here.
