So without too much guff, here’s to a New Year and a new leaf.
Hoping it is fruitful for all of us.

Not adding much more to Etsy for now. The urban rustic shop site is coming along nicely thanks to my lovely bud Michelle Lorimer, though I am trying to enjoy this last summer with my little Lily before her new school life begins.

If you see anything you would love to buy or hire, just drop me an email, no pressure. Inquiries welcome.

5 vintage leaf plates plus kids hands-sm

Not set up, I’ve mentioned before how hysterical my kids think it is to creep their hands in when I am shooting stuff. So I guess I am blowing my mystique [say what now?] but I may as well confess: most/try all, of my photos are not taken in the gi-normous light-filled studios of urban rustic incorporated [I wish] but on the white Corian benchtop in the family kitchen.

And now to leaf you with further inspiration, by some people who really know what they are doing…

These are not my plates, and to be totally clear, not my photo.
