Oh my...

Sometimes I stumble upon photos on Flickr that truly take my breath away... and these photos by Andrew Millar taken with the newer Impossible Project films and a SX-70 have done just that.
The colours, tones, light and subject matter in these are just stunning and I always have a weakness for photos of horses and silhouettes. But it's the top right photo that's my favourite and it alone makes me want to try even harder to populate my photos and to capture the lovely little moments of interaction between people. 
To see more of Andrew's photos, check out his Flickr photostream (I highly recommend it) or his Facebook page - you won't be disappointed.

Two exciting new shops!!

It's not very often that I blog about online shops, after permenantly putting my Etsy shop on hold, I haven't had the enthusiasm for Etsy that I used too. However, yesterday I got very excited about online shopping indeed as two of my lovely UK blog friends Elizabeth and Zoe opened their shops and now I am very excited to share them with you!
First up is Elizabeth's new shop Three Jelly Moulds and a Wardrobe...
If you follow Elizabeth's blog or Twitter then you know that she has been putting her shop together for a while hunting out the perfect pieces for it and I must say, her finds really are lovely. 
With a combination of vintage and retro pieces and categories such as Kitchen, Fashion, Photography and also a great £10 and under section, this vintage shop has a huge selection of delightful pieces at great prices.

Next is Zoe's new shop, Ladybird Likes...

You may recognise this shop from my last Christmas giveaway. I was very excited about Zoe's shop then and now that it's open, I am just as excited about it now.

Like Elizabeth's shop, Zoe's shop combines a lot of my favourite things - cameras, brooches, birds, dogs(!!) and photography. With beautiful necklaces, stationary, photos and postcards and a huge variety of brooches, Ladybird Likes is a fun little shop, perfect for gifts, either for your friends or just for yourself.

Having had a shop once myself, I completely understand the time and effort it takes to put one together and to show your work well. Both Elizabeth and Zoe's shops look wonderful, have amazing pieces and they are both a true testiment to their hard work and skills and
 both are definitely worth a look around, enjoy!
