ink stained

This is my favorite drawer of wood type at the studio. I love how each letter has inherited a certain color over the years, and that each and every one is different.

in my garden...

"In my garden there is a large place for sentiment. My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams. The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers, and the dreams are as beautiful." -Abram L. Urban

everywhere, for a moment

"Lilacs in dooryards
Holding quiet conversations with an early moon;
Lilacs watching a deserted house
Settling sideways into the grass of an old road;
Lilacs, wind-beaten, staggering under a lopsided shock of bloom
Above a cellar dug into a hill.
You are everywhere."

-Amy Lowell

what dreams are made of

Soft lilac, aqua blue, sparkly mason jars, unlimited amounts of polaroid film (i WISH!)... ;o)

PS: Has anyone seen the new cotton commercial with Zooey Deschanel? I just saw it for the first time tonight. Love her!

more little b

We did another photo shoot today with Little B! He enjoyed the grass much more this time around...especially his little feets! ;o)

This weekend we went to Chicago to watch our friends' horse, Liem's Luck, run at Arlington. She is such a beauty...and a talented gal, to boot. I'm hoping to get some real "up close and personal" shots next time, so stay tuned! ;o)

{PS: Thanks Pete and Heather! Can't wait for next time...}

the light of thought

little b

Uploading this image to the Web took away a lot of its vibrancy and color, but it's still pretty darn cute! Happy six months, little B!

cupcakes for the cure

Hope you guys aren't getting sick of my cupcake shots yet! I just can't get enough of them lately.

The cupcakes pictured above were on sale at Lunalux today during our Bake for Hope bake sale benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure. And don't be fooled by their sweet demeanor...these particular ones had chipotle seasoning mixed in for extra ZING!!

after the rain

Have you ever noticed how tulips curl up during rain showers and then, ever so slowly, unfurl themselves afterwards? It took me 28 years, but I finally did. ;o)

And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere
I've looked at clouds that way..."
