I am so far behind in the things I have wanted to post about that I keep not posting because I am so far behind in posts so I keep getting farther behind while I think about how far behind I am… can you follow that wonderfully twisted logic… catch 22 in the biggest sort of way!
So I have decided I am going to start going backwards…. so don't be surprised if you get belated Market shots in 10 days. I am going to start with today, then post about Chicago, then about life, then about Pittsburgh, then about… who knows what else I have forgotten!
Market mixed with the finishing up of a new collection mixed with my Chicago trip mixed with Memorial Day celebrations that included an emergency room trip mixed with end of school celebrations that include my oldest graduating from elementary and my youngest graduating from preschool mixed with the finishing up of the newest patterns mixed with Spring Ballet performances…. basically lots of things, mixed with lots of things.
But one of my favorite things these days is playing with my new lens recommended by Miss Camille.… gotta love that girl's photography skills! It takes a bit of getting used to but I am loving some of the results as I learn how to actually use the darn thing…
Every year when I go to Spring Market, I leave my three bushes of Peonies in wonderful, waiting, expecting buds. And every year when I am gone to Spring Market, they bloom… and I miss it! There is nothing more heavenly than the sight and smell of fully open, blooming Peonies in various shades of cream, pink and yellow and every year I miss it! Well this year I came home to this wonderful sight and so have been taking pictures of them ever since. I don't know if you can imagine the scent, the sweet, heady perfumed scent of peonies…. its truly wonderful!
A few small Market booth closeups. These cherries, the lack of more and their journey became somewhat legendary at Market. Let's just say that my husband would not want to hear the story again and its not quite appropriate for a blog post. If you know me on a personal level, one day you'll have to ask me about them…
One of my favorite new little projects. We just whipped up a few more in the studio the other day… couldn't resist…. so simple, so many uses… such a little thing that can make you so happy. I should have called them happy little bowls.
Loving these little shade pretties. In fact we will be giving a few of these away along with some other fun booth furnishings in a future post this week so stay tuned.
