winter scenes

These pictures aren't anything too special, but I have been enjoying the little Olympus camera that Geoff bought recently. Film forever.










Brunch at L'Ouvrier; peonies; mountain sign; velvet maxi skirt, hair, and clog boots, or what you do when you get to the end of the roll and want to finish it faster; an attempt at capturing a beautifully-coloured sky; our scarves arrived and will debut soon (I first mentioned them here), but for now, a little peek.








REPLIES

Celine: Thanks so much, Celine! Same to you.

Valerie Enríquez, Caitlin Shearer, in dreams, sn, Anna, Hanna, Ariane Reichardt, Sweet Harvest Moon, Mallory, Apricots+Silk, hila, Our Youth, Lolo: Thank you, everyone! You are all the sweetest. One last time, happy new year!

katie merchant / thank you, ok: The Coriander Girl bouquets are the best!

tara-lynn, Jane Flanagan, Hollie: Thank you! I was very happy that night (& maybe a liiiiittle tipsy). I think it's a good idea to have your birthday party on a day that isn't actually your birthday.

onbeauty: Thanks! I keep trying to find a similar skirt for when I inevitably wear this one into the ground.

danica: Ha! In real life I think we actually look quite different. Katie is so much taller than I am, anyhow! But she's a beauty so I'm flattered!

Melissa Dominic: It's the best.

Camille: What a lovely wish, thank you! I hope so too.

Kate: Haahaaahaha! Stalker, pfft. I'm the one who puts it out there. Also, I take that as a compliment! Thanks, girl! Same to you.

darcy dubose: Thanks! Sadly, no, it's polyester, which means that it's a static magnet.

erica-knits: Thanks, Erica! I loved your green skirt too! Maxi skirts are the best. And thanks, I shall take that as a compliment (although it's not really true in real life, just in that picture!).

avalonne hall: Oh wow, how sweet of you to say! Thank you, thank you.

stephanie renee: Thanks so much!

  6. the scarves look beautiful!
    sometimes i think that film is easier to manage. i feel overwhelmed by the quantity of digital photographs and am terrible about editing and organizing!

  7. ooh, excited for the scarves! love the mountainesque scene.

    and the photos are lovely. you say "not anything too special," but anything you touch (or capture) seems to have a magical softness to it...

  8. Can't wait to get my hands on a scarf. I'm not a scarf person - at all - but I think I will make an exception for this one.

  9. What lovely whites and perfect winter light.

    The scarves! They've arrived! Hooray!

    Maxi skirts are the best, and far more practical in wintertime than I would have thought.

  10. Well, even though they are nothing "special", they are beautiful nevertheless!

  11. Yippee, Fieldguided scarves. Can't wait!

    That Olympus camera was my last film camera before I 'upgraded' to digital in 2006. Digital didn't last long for me. I wish I still had that little camera. It look wonderful photos.

  26. Oh, that scarf!!! I went back from December and the holidays nauseated by material things, but that scarf is beautiful enough to overcome that and save for when it will be added to the shop! Is it silk?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Forever and ever and ever, Amen.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Just beautiful, that is all. Wait: also, that cafe sounds so great (I zoomed in on the menu, the yoghurt sounds delicious!)

  29. Hello A!

  30. I take lots of hurry-let's-finish-this-roll shots too but they usually don't turn out half as nice as yours did. Love these photos!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Your photos are lovely, as always. I gifted a Dreamcats calender (in mint)to some friends for the holidays, and I think I was just as thrilled giving it as they were receiving. So thanks. All this time I thought your "Thunder in our hearts" bags were inspired by Bruce Springsteen! The song, "She's the One" from his "Born to Run" album. Uh, so good. I realized tonight from your bio it's a Kate Bush song, then I listened to his again and realized it's actually a little different.

    Anyway, I'm writing for no reason, because I love what you're doing and the fact that you gave a shout out to Joan Didion in your about me! I think we'd get along just great. :)

    Sorry for rambling. Happiest new year to you and yours.

  32. Cute camera! The photos have turned out really well. What kind of film did you use?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh my, I just discovered your blog through Astrid's post. Beautiful !!

  34. Lovely photos as always. Looking forward to the debut of your scarves. I'm intrigued! Happy New Year!

  35. one can never have enough peonies!

    i love the atmosphere of these photos.

  36. I love my old Olympus! Film is so much fun. I love it when I develop a roll and find pictures I'd forgotten about. Here's to keeping film alive!

    And your silk scarves are beautiful!
