well so my girl got to come home yesterday for the long weekend. and we did what we usually do – which is grab a bite for lunch and stop by starbucks. it’s sort of our thing. and after we finished lunch and running our errands, i asked her if she’d be up to visiting some of the quirky “antique” shops nearby. to which she graciously agreed.
there wasn’t anything specific on my list except perhaps a funky (i.e. wooden, rustic, peeling paint, etc.) tabletop for use in my photography. and so we walked through the little shops looking at tchotchkes and trying on old hats.
i didn’t find any good tables, but i did find a pair of those vintage-looking bonsai shears. complete with a cute little crate and five balls of twine. and as a bonus i found a really cool old spindle and some great vintage botanical illustrations.
of course i couldn’t wait to get home to take their picture.
but the find of the day went to my girl who happens to love hippos and stumbled across this adorable t-shirt.
i love all my new treasures and i can’t wait to start incorporating them into my photos. but my favorite part of the day was some much needed downtime, hanging out with my girl.
happy friday my friends!

Well, didn’t you hit the jackpot! And to have your girl home made it extra special! I bought my scissors at Gather and believe me, they cost more than yours and you got the crate and twine thrown in! Wish we had more vintage places like that here. Beautiful photos as always and I can see that you are going to put those treasures to good use!
Oh … my … good heavens … I am absolutely blown away by your series, Kelly! Just stunning composition, light and tones – you’ve outdone even yourself. Bravo! So glad you found such wonderful treasures and that you had your best treasure to share the day with!
