Hello folks and HAPPY THURSDAY! This is my last post till the new year, so I'm leaving you with something extra special. I recently did this doll photoshoot inspired by this magical video. Gosh, I must have seen that video at least 10 times. The idea was to capture the life of dolls that humans don't see. Like what dolls do when we aren't looking. I've always loved the idea that dolls have a secret life independent of their owners. I really want to expand this concept and do a part two sometime soonish... we'll see. This was my second studio shoot ever and was super fun (but between you and me, i like being in the good ol' outdoors a whole lot better).

This weekend sees me updating my photography website and crafting with friends. I hope you have a great weekend and week. Stay safe and I'll see you in 2012!

The Audrey Grace Boutique Opening was last Saturday and I was so excited when Jaclyn posted the pictures of the shop. It's the first time I've ever taken part in a photography exhibition and I am so happy seeing my artwork hanging up alongside so many other peoples'... I think I'm going to watch an Audrey Hepburn movie tonight just to celebrate.

Too much loveliness all in one place. Even the walls are the Tiffany blue color! Anyone who's lucky enough to live in Jackson, Mississippi, I encourage you to go!

PS. Who can spot my photo on the wall? (hint: it's in the second picture and it's this photo that's on display).

I see color!

Tights
One of my favorite things about cool weather is that I can wear tights. Over the years, I've accumulated quite the collection. The newest addition to my tights family are my gold colored tights, gifted to me by my mom (thanks mom!). Now you wouldn't think gold would go with a lot of things, but magically it seems to match with most everything I own. I have to restrain myself from wearing them every day. Because if I didn't exercise any self-control, I could easily wear them every day. Do you love tights as much as I do?

Baby it's cold outside.

The weather has been cool and crisp lately. The nights have been just cold enough for a frost to form on people's lawns. The frost looks so pretty in the morning light. Maybe I'll take pictures sometime this week to share. My days have been spent reading with a cup of tea and spending my nights watching old movies with the fam. I've also been listening to this on repeat. I'll take a few more days like these, yes a few more days like these indeed ♥.

Anka Zhuravleva is an artist living in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Her work is magical; I especially love her 'distorted gravity' series. The scenes depicted in her photographs are so eccentric, it's almost calming, soothing.

Be still my beating heart.

Be still my beating heart.
The Breakfast at Tiffany's Manhattan townhouse is up for sale for $5.85 million. Dying just a little on the inside right now. Ms. Golightly, why did you have such expensive taste? A big thanks to Christy for telling me about this!

PS. Next time I go to NYC, I am definitely stopping by the townhouse now that I know the address hehe (169 East 71st Street).

One Handspun Day is a new website that offers wedding stationary products designed by artists that you can print yourself for your own handspun wedding. They have various collections with whimsical names, such as 'Paint You a Party, My Dear' and 'Love is a Flutter.' Even though these invitations are intended for weddings, I'm trying to justify buying some for other party purposes. Is it weird to have a party just to use the invitations? Possibly.

Such a pretty way to display lilacs, or any flower for that matter. That last picture is too pretty.

My dears, have you seen the latest issue of N.E.E.T. Magazine? It features a new fashion series by Marie Zucker called Raspberry Thighs. Sort of has a less pretentious, more intimate 'let them eat cake' feel, no? And I lurrrve those glitter shoes!

Audrey Grace Boutique is a pop-up shop coming to Jackson, Mississippi December 17th. Run by Jaclyn Bethany, Audrey Grace is inspired by Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly (hence the name), as well as other style icons. The shop is set to stock every conceivable independent designer, from TBA to Kelsey Genna to Rachel Antonoff (you can see the full list here). There's also going to be a photography exhibition that I'm taking part in. I must say, Jaclyn is one incredible lady to pull this all off. I only wish I could be in Jackson to see the store in the flesh. I am sure it is going to be amazing.
