Photobooth Friday — No. 23

Snapshots from our week:

| highlights |

My Dad’s birthday was last week and we got a chance to go home for a visit on Saturday. It was fantastic to see my parents, siblings, and their families. It was the first time we had all been together since Thanksgiving { Mom was snapping photos, of course } ! Ryan made a birthday beer for my Dad to enjoy, and everyone laughed a lot while we sat around in the living room together sans TV, computers, + other electronic distractions. Now that’s what life’s about. My brother even brought up an imaginary friend that I had when I was about three that the rest of us had completely forgotten about! It was so neat to have that old familiar feeling again.

While we were home, Ryan + I opened up our camp so we could borrow some items to use for our upcoming ModSwap. My family’s cabin has housed Smith family members since my Grandfather { that’s him in the canoe! } built it in 1953. But with no insulation it’s only useable during the summer months. Stepping inside during the winter always feels strange + sad. I’m immediately flooded with happy warm weather memories and somehow feel guilty for not keeping it toasty warm in the winter, too.

This week so many bow ties were made in my little studio and I’m officially a seller at the Merchant Company! I’ve been a seamstress there since this fall, but have never displayed my own designs until I brought some in on Tuesday — so exciting! Now I’m working on bulking up my stock, so my Grandmother’s sewing machine has never been busier! If you’re in the Portland area stop in to have a look at my wares! I’m so happy to finally have my own little section, tiny as it may be.

TGIF, friends!

    You have beautiful photography! I love the vintage feel. It’s awesome how you can turn a seemingly simple item into a beautiful piece of art. Keep up the great posts!

      Wow, that is quite the compliment! Thank you so much for your kind words and encouragement! I have to say, though, Instagram certainly helps. 🙂
