the small details

For the past few days, I’ve been hard at work at re-shooting my items for the shop. I don’t mind at all, in fact I do enjoy taking photos of my items now that I have a permanent place to photoshoot. No more windowsill, although I get amazing bright photos on it, it just wouldn’t cut it anymore I needed to step up, after all the photos are your product is the mantra I often read in the forums. I love the new gray paint which is the new background and the sun filled corner I’ve just discovered. It’s the only gray wall in the house for now…and I may have to do the whole room sometime soon.

I’m also loving my new macro lens and I find myself more drawn to details, the F/1.8 feature is just what I need in this rainy and cloudy Seattle weather.

Here's a few of the small details in and around my home...

pincushion in my sewing studio, turned storage room...

my newly thrifted red bakelite flatwares is a perfect match to my Swiss Chalet bowls...

and on the outside, my front yard is still looking green even in winter months...

and I just adore the moss that's covering most of my front lawn, trees and rockeries.

That is all. I will have a big shop update early Monday morning...please check back!


  1. Beautiful! Macro shots are my very favorite.

    Thanks for the offer of tips on redoing my blog! I think I understand how to widen the format-- I'm going to work on it this morning and if I can't figure it out I'll come asking for help! :)

  2. I have a whole set of those swiss chalet dishes that I've been trying to figure out what to do with. If you ever need replacements or certain pieces (or the whole set), let me know! Would love them to go to someone who would appreciate them. :)
