Happy Weekend!

June 4, 2011

I’d like to wish all of you an inspiring and enjoyable weekend. I’ll be working on my window display for the American Book Center and I have a lot of work ahead of me but I am ready to pull together a nice window for them and can’t wait until I’ve installed it so I can share it with all of you! Yesterday I spent time in my studio listening to Ellie Goulding while shooting for Mowie Kay’s new magazine, due to launch very soon — I wrote some decorating tips and produced and photographed a few spreads that will hopefully inspire you. Once it’s out, I’ll let you know!

Happy Weekend!

Happy Weekend!

Happy Weekend!

It was fun to produce something in my home studio, I have a new camera, I shoot tethered now and I’m learning more about my camera settings. I also have a fantastic tripod so I feel confident as I begin to explore shooting more things for my blog and for other projects. I’m no Debi Treloar, but I do love the freedom of being able to take decent photos because now I can better express myself through a new medium.

I wish you all a very nice weekend, make sure you notice and enjoy the details…

    I just made pictures of the window this afternoon.. It is currently filled with ‘The Selby” and I was asking Rick how long it would last so he could ‘please’give me the posters ;) Si I guess you are doing it next weekend or so her in town?

    You are a good photographer, even without the equipment. I hope you remember that the good photo’s are not in the equipment, but in you.
    I am still happy with my Panasonic fz28.
    I am looking forward to photo’s of your display.
    Have a nice weekend.

    hi, nice blog you have :-)

    I went to Anthropologie in Pittsburgh PA, just to buy your book. From all the books that I have read about home decor, yours is the best.
    Well organized, beautiful pictures and excellent tips.

    I am looking forward to buy your next book.

    hi holly,

    I think your blog is one of the most inspiring ones on my list of faves. I admire that you can do sooo much beauty with your time. I’m starting a new blog, and if you have time, it would so great to know what you think. Thanks… (http://simplysubtle.wordpress.com/2011/06/06/what-i-learned-from-three-years-of-blogging/)
