i realise i haven’t done this properly for a couple weeks, but i’m back!
the past couple weeks have been full ups and downs. this blog is my happy place though, so i won’t be going into that! saying that, if i felt articulate enough to talk about certain things, i probably would at some point. if anyone ever needs to chat, feel free to just leave me a comment or send me a little twitter message.
i found this cute tin ..i think it used to have strawberry tea in it? i’m a sucker for strawberries and strawberry shaped things etc so i knew i had to get it! i love that it has the leaves and flowers on too.
i have no idea what i’m going to use it for though. perhaps tea? or some supplies. any ideas?
when i was in the same charity shop i found these cute little butterfly stamps too. i assume they’re from the philippines? haha. pretty butterfly stamps get me every time. i’m amassing quite a collection of stamps now. does anyone else collect?
a couple months back i won a place on the blogging your way intention and style course from the lovely holly becker of decor8. it was so fun and i learned a lot of things. this is my image from our final weeks homework, where we had to style our own little vignette (or whatever else we were inspired by) and take a photo.
unfortunately my tripod had decided to misbehave so i had to take this by hand in the fading light. i should have, and wanted to, use a smaller aperture to get everything in focus (i’m talking to you, coral up the top there!) but what with adjusting shutter speed and iso the image would have been blurry, so i thought i’d rather have most of it in focus at least!
what do you think? i used some of my favourite little objects. i never normally use a dark background but i wanted to challenge myself, and i think it really works here.
