tricky, tricky, tricky

well, today is the kind of day that makes me love my job. it helps me to forget all of the steamer burns, blisters from wearing rubber boots with the wrong kind of socks and hawling a 60 pound pack full of styling kit stuff up the side of a mountain, the sun burns from my absent mindedness and total neglect of sunscreen on a 90degree day shooting on a lake, the giant knots in my lower back from holding a reflector for 8hrs straight....
today I get to go shopping- without the guilt of spending money. i will spend the afternoon picking out beautiful things for a shoot coming up at the end of the week. Soon I will be frantic, and the stress of logistics will have taken over. But for now, I am going to enjoy the fun bits of my chosen career. I am going shopping~

the best time of day

I just went for a long slow bike ride. Winding my way down the boulevard, through the grove of Elm trees, over the river and into the grass for a nap and a read. what a perfectly lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon~

post it love

painting the walls

love these lovely rooms.
I have been thinking of painting the wall that my desk faces for quite some time now. At the moment it is a crisp white and the wood trim around the window is a dark kind of cherry. This pink post from may have just won me over. Is there any other color that sparks such happiness? If you have any other suggestions I am all ears!

ka ka ka katie

my talented and inspirational sister sent me some tears to inspire me on the next shoot I am preparing for. here are a few of her selections

Heath Ceramics

I was turned onto this company by my dear friend Nyree who registered with them for her wedding dishes. Since then I have come across their gorgeous table settings at Twist in Northwest Portland. They are elegant, interesting and timeless. Also their colors are to die for!
