The new shoot was a full success!

I mean, I know I’m the one saying it, so maybe take that with a grain of salt.

But, I think the new look really makes the items pop in the listings.

What do you think?

I already have the next shoot scheduled, and hope to have the majority of the shop switched over to the new style within the next few months.

I commented to G the other day that the only things I have to talk about–indeed, the only things I think about–are all work-related.

I must be a true bore.

I need to get out into the garden this weekend!

Go fishing! (we totally got our fishing licenses this past weekend–both of us love fishing, but have never fished down here!  G grew up fishing in the Bahamas, and I grew up fishing in MN.  So, it’s a new adventure)

Maybe then I’ll have more to discuss…and be a tad more interesting. 😉

Spring!

I’ve been working on new Spring and Summer things for the shop lately–neglecting the blog, neglecting the yard, neglecting the garden.  *sigh*

Just sewing, sewing, sewing, SEWING!

Also re-working (or attempting to re-work) the photography for my etsy shop.

While I love the editorial photography, the lighting, the mood, the setting…..it’s not as cohesive as I’d like it to be.

So, I decided to try a new style.

Went out with the lovely Nancy Jane a couple of weeks ago and snapped a bunch of new photos with new things, as well as old.

While I love them……they’re still not right.

And so, today, we’re trying this again.

Going for more simple.  Less distraction from the clothing.

But I think I’m going to miss the backgrounds.

Trying to get your business the way you want it is a never-ending process, it seems.

Happy Almost-Weekend to you!

Sissy

sissy

Because, I’ve always thought she was beautiful.

sissy1

I often times had to fight people on that.

sissy2

I love freckles and gingers.

sissy3

I might be biased….

sissy4

She plays her roles with such a beautiful balance of fragility and strength.

sissy5

She’s so petite, you feel like you could crush her with just a look.

sissy6

Maybe part of my love is bound up in the 70s–being a child of the 70s (well, really more a child of the 80s), I guess I have nostalgia automatically built into my ideas of her.

sissy7

That, and the whole “Carrie” thing…..I mean, girlfriend kicked some ass.

sissy8

I was *this close* to being named Carrie, but my father put the stop to it, worrying that I’d get made fun of, due to the film.

sissy9

I love-love-love her in “Blast from the Past”.  I think I’d be her in that situation.

sissy10

Though I’d most likely be much more vocal and poorly dressed…

Rest and Relaxation

Kicking the week off with a 4am wake up call has inspired within me a fierce desire to lay about in a sunshiney meadow.  Lazy fuzzy bumbling bumble bees bumping from flower to flower, dragonflies perching on my toe to see what I’m up to.  The sun warming my face, a good book to keep me company.

Ghosts

What do you do when you find yourself second guessing 3 of the final looks for an upcoming runway show?  Well, if you’re me, you grab a stack of spring fabrics to turn into tunic dresses and you pull up your trusty queue of scary movies.  Add a large iced green tea, a few kitties, and you are SET.

Countdown

As the show gets closer I find myself getting a bit more hesitant to share TOO much about what I’ll be showing.  However, I had a couple more fittings yesterday, and I have to show you Archana–she’s wearing a really boho kind of look, and I just cannot get over how good she looks in it.
