    Tim Burton’s Dumbo

    Last week, we went to see Tim Burton’s Dumbo, and of course I had to make a skirt for the occasion! I’ve had this vintage Walt Disney Dumbo sheet for about a year now, and was always a bit too afraid to cut into it. Since it was a twin sheet, I only had enough fabric for one go at making the perfect little skirt. Thankfully, as you can see, it all turned out well! I finally remembered to add pockets — something I often neglect when I make things — and it’s the first skirt I’ve made myself with a zipper. Usually, I put in buttons or, lazily, just close…

    Vera the Medium

    The other day I realized that I have not taken any photos for nearly a month. I had been in the habit of taking some me-time and shooting photos every week or weekend, but somehow in March I found myself occupied. Perhaps between getting shingles and having sick kids, or the rain that seemed to always come on the weekends, or working on my new project for YouTube, or the annoyance of having lost my remote shutter release, I don’t know. Somehow, nearly a full month passed without any photography at all. But then I took my best friend’s maternity photos right here on this bridge, and was inspired to…

    At the End of the Rainbow

Over the course of the past few weeks I’ve had shingles, morphed into having a terrible cold and fever, had all three of my kids be sick, and just have generally been under the weather. It’s been a crazy few weeks, but it all worked out because I think these photos are perfect for St Patrick’s Day! Though traditionally St Patrick wore blue, the rainbow sun-flare I caught and the green accents on this dress from Dolly and Dotty  make for a cute low-key St Patrick’s day outfit. I actually shot these photos a…

    Wildwood Dancing

     Much like a bear hibernates in the winter, I feel as though my blog has hibernated these last few weeks. After the big snowed-in weekend, where I spent every day planning a new photoshoot to take advantage of the beauty of the rare snow, I felt my motivation to blog those photos melt away with the subsequent days of rain and slush. I could keep it poetic and say my mood followed the weather, but in reality something finally happened in our lives that put into perspective many of the things I do for blogging and social media. And since then, I’ve been working to figure out the best way…

    Dream a Little Dream of Me

    Stars shining bright above you Night breezes seem to whisper I love you Birds singing in the sycamore tree Dream a little dream of me Say night-ie night and kiss me Just hold me tight and tell me you’ll miss me While I’m alone and blue as can be Dream a little dream of me  similar robe | similar earrings | similar nightgown | similar hair flowers | similar mirror
