Dreaming of Christmas

Jo Heckett's Ceramic Doves

RE: found Paper Snow Flakes

In a previous post I mentioned with glee, that we are spending Christmas in our home this year. We'll go to Church in the morning, eat a fairly traditional lunch and then have three families joining us for fun and games! Today I thought, I may as well start putting a mood board together for the seasons celebrations.

Surprise Delivery

What a lovely surprise! My ever thoughtful mother-in-law, sent us a gift this morning. Other than a photography book, I haven't been expecting any post. So I signed for the parcel, very excited about the little surprise that someone has sent me. It was a sack of woodland fragrance kindling for our new wood burning stove. A simple gesture, but so lovely to receive.

Scratching my Itch

Maybe it was Juergen Teller or the early Corinne Day whom influenced my love for realism in fashion and interior photography. In honestly I cannot remember, maybe it was always there, as I spent hours pouring over my late mother's photos passed onto her. I remember the first time I couldn't stop looking at Corrine's first photo shoot for ID. Then the likes of Misha Richter and Valerie Phillips were on my wishlist. The above images are from Erica Tanov collections shot by Erica Shires. Another photographer that makes me stop and think hard about scratching my itch.

Through a shop window

The other day in St Leonard's we stumbled across an interesting shop. The shop was closed and seemed to be a place that had a very sparse layout. I was so intrigued I took some photos but failed to note the name of the shop!
