...with combining photo apps!

 This image was shot on my iPhone 5 with the Cameramatic app. I then added some blur with the Kitcam app before importing that version back into Cameramatic and adding a filter & frame. Next, I emailed that image to myself to finish it in Photoshop. Whew!


 ...with Lark Rise to Candleford!

Loving this wonderful BBC adaption of the Flora Thompson book. If like me you are a sucker for these historical soaps, ala Downton Abbey, then put on the kettle and join me. Others I have recently watched and reccomend; Cranford, Bleak House & the wonderful Forsyth Saga. Best of all, all of these are free to stream if you have Amazon Prime.


...with the perfect cup!

I've be crushing on this pretty little single serve teapot ever since I spied it at Poketo. What would we do without are little cups of tea?


...with Pinning!

It is hard not become obsessed with the visual feast that is Pinterest, a social media site that is the equivalent of an online scrapbook. I also use it for my work, creating "secret" boards for my creative teams & clients, showing them my ideals and inspiration for upcoming shoots. You can follow me (and please do) here.


 ...with 'lette Macarons!

Crisp on the outside, soft & creamy on the inside, they are addictive but only slightly decadent. Located in Pasadena's thriving "Old Town" shopping area. 


...with the art of Emily Winfield Martin!

I first discovered her a few years ago and her Black Apple Esty shop is full of tempting paper goods. From this newly released Flower Girls postcard set to art prints, magnets & charming recipe cards. These cards are printing on a beautiful, thick card-stock. I already have both her Carnival & Alice sets and may have to add these as well. I've also given her wonderful Paper Doll book to a few select young ladies I know.
