Collector’s Corner: Glassware Favorites

April 30, 2018

It’s no surprise that I love to set the table.   I often use the glasses from my grandmother’s house in England which are our everyday — she bought so many that we all have a set.   They are simple, thin-rimmed wine glasses with an elegant shape.   I haven’t been able to find a similar set, but I think that it’s easy to use the same principal of having your foundation glassware and then padding it with fun finds: colored glass,…

Planting an Herb Garden

April 27, 2018

I should begin this post by explaining that Will, my husband, is the expert gardener but that I have been keen to learn.     Will built these flower boxes last spring with his father and they have been eagerly awaiting fresh plants since last season’s faded away.     We thought it might be nice to try an herb garden as we are cooking more and don’t always end up finishing our store bought basil, etc.   We planted:  thyme, dill, parsley,…

Silly Dinner Party Games!

April 25, 2018

Center: wearing one of my favorite new dinner party dresses, see here! Fits like a glove. xx  I love spending time with my extended family because it’s always a riot.   We stay up late, we sing, we dance, and we play lots and lots of silly games which make us laugh until our tummies ache or someone inevitably wets their pants.   It’s lively and it’s so full of love.  My childhood was spent staying up late for these special occasions,…

Introducing Collector’s Corner

April 23, 2018

Styling Spring Flowers

April 5, 2018

This afternoon was pure bliss.    We had a beautifully sunny start to the day and after sometime at the office, I headed out to pick up some fresh flowers for the house.   The storm clouds rolled overhead just as I stepped inside but the rain was still balmy and warm so I had all of the windows open with a breeze coming through.    I love days like this. I often get asked how I go about selecting flowers…

Friday Night on the Porch

March 23, 2018

We have been working hard to try to really mark our weekends and to take that time off to relax with family and friends.  I know this probably sounds straight forward but after so many years of shooting weddings regularly on the weekends, it’s not a habit we have practiced well.   It’s not that we worked “all the time” it was just that because we work for ourselves, we set a funny schedule where we were never really off duty…
