First of all, thank you SO MUCH for all of the information regarding my questions on the last post. I learned a LOT from all of you, so much that UPPER CASE is required to express my appreciation. I knew you would have the answers!
Meanwhile, I've been busy sifting through the 340 photos I took recently of vintage burlap bags, a giant fork & spoon, vintage typewriter keys, a wooden shoe, pillows I made, vintage fabrics I bought, vintage fabrics that were given to me and assorted yard-saled doodads.
Some of the photos are for my etsy shop, PeppermintBark (why not a Giant Fork & Spoon, I say?!), some were for this blog post and some were test shots of recent Doily Factory projects which are eventually headed to my other etsy shop, VintageHome.
Even though it feels suspiciously like summer around here at the moment, the PNW rain is coming and the days I'll be able to take photos outside are numbered so I like to do a little practicing indoors to see what works.
Usually I take a variety of shots just to see how everything looks from different angles...
Then I tinker with the details like adding a little color to the empty not-for-canning jars using vintage spools of thread, puttering with the height of things and editing out odd bits & pieces like that button-covered thumbtack stuck in the wall...
And voila -- the result. Which seems to be more in focus if the photo is clicked on to enlarge. So now I have an indoor set for photographing pillows.
Just need to make some pillows.
Here's a few additions to the vintage fabric stash. I'm quickly becoming addicted to the graphic florals from the '60s & '70s -- I love those big blue roses.
But vintage tablecloths will always be my first love.
These vintage beauties were a lovely surprise from Lisa at A Thing For Roses. I can't even tell you how much that middle fabric thrills me -- I've never seen it before and something about it really makes me vintage-giddy. Thank you Lisa, you're a peach!
Wishing everyone a wonderful day!
