Trace My Face + Etsy Love

Found this lovely etsy store called Trace My Face from designer Traci Edwards via new blog Etsy Love. I thought it would be a nice shop for you to discover as we head off into the weekend (yay!). Traci has lots of feminine prints that would fit in so well with our whole Boho theme today…

And a warm welcome to new blogger Nicole who will focus her blog on Etsy, from her finds to how to use the site and shop ownership. I can’t wait to see what she finds from one of our favorite sites. Nicole is also an etsy store owner (Crafty Devils), which I think only adds to her voice of a blogger because she knows both sides of the biz. Congrats Nicole!

Have a lovely weekend everyone, I’m signing off until Monday. Tomorrow I’ll be shaking in my boots with the Boston Globe, they mentioned today that they’ll have a photographer in tow while I take them shopping, so it’s time to freak out boys and girls. I never expected the new year to start like this. I’ll let you know how it goes on Monday – maybe I can turn the camera on them and take a few shots around town showing you the stores we hit, etc. Wish me luck and I’ll meet you back here in a few… Happy Weekend!

Equivoque {photography}

Sometimes the best school is the old school, especially in the case of the Polaroid. Though I won’t be handing in my digital camera anytime soon, there’s still something about the raw untouched-by-Photoshop appeal, their often faded colors and that sweet little off-centered square format that keeps me coming back for more. Or perhaps it’s the feeling of nostalgia since it was the first camera I got my hands on as a child and much to my mother’s display I’d burn through all of the film in the back seat of our car long before we arrived at our vacation spot.


To some, the Polaroid is dated technology that’s fun to play around with but nothing more. For others it’s about producing images that evoke an emotion and over time creates an audience and a way to earn a living. A network and Unix systems administrator by day and a photographer and poet by night, Elinor Scott-Sutter of Equivoque has a body of work that is revealing, sensitive, and absolutely stunning. I can’t take my eyes off of these images above, the lighting is absolute perfection and the faded tones give them such a vintage flavor. I know someone who needs to quit her day job… Elinor… :) What an eye, I look forward to watching her shop updates to see what she’ll do next.

Photobird {pretty new things}

It’s always exciting to watch a collection of pretty things that you admire expand a bit. Seems like Photobird is stretching her wings and developing a beautiful product line to extend beyond photos and postcards.

She has crochet coasters in her winter shop, gift tags, and lovely notebooks to pop into your handbag for jotting down little notes to self or for passing love letters across the table at a cafe. These things are so pretty and have an almost Scandinavian feel to me… Someone really needs to purchase the coasters. I think she only has one set left. You can frame them they are so lovely.
