I've Been Away

I've been away from blogger. And, I am going to be starting a new blog soon. It will be launched in a couple weeks to come. My new blog will be more of a personal blog and be more about my passion and journey through photography. See you in a few weeks!

My flea market finds from last Sunday. I purchased a few more. I just can't decide if I want to keep them or not:) hehehe

Sexy and Sweet

Just listed these three pretties today!

Etsy Shop Update

I'm slowly making some changes with my vintage clothing shop on Etsy. I created a new, simple banner for my shop yesterday and have finally been using my new lighter grey backdrop for my pictures. I really like the light grey vs. the white and the darker grey. My other idea that I go back and forth on are my pictures. I am still planning to use the mannequin but, I can't decide if my thumbnail photo should be split in two or only show one.

I am also going to be changing the style I do my descriptions, just slightly. I am trying to make my shop as clean and simple as possible. My mannequin is pink and that is already more busy and bright than I really want so I am attempting to tone down everything else until the day I find a neutral mannequin.

Lastly, after I post all of my new items I am going to go back through all of my old items and redo the photos. Some of them are in need of some serious help!

Here are a few of the freshly listed dresses and I have 20 plus more to go from Sunday's flea market. To see my shop click here, Little Orphan Fannie.

I see you

Last week for my Valentine's gift, my sweetheart purchased a new camera lens for me. It arrived yesterday and I am so excited to have it.

As soon as I noticed the mail man across the way, I religiously kept peeking out my window to see when he'd be to our mailbox. As he drove up, I saw a package on his trucks step and assumed it had to be mine. (In fact, I tried to take a picture of it from a window upstairs, to see if my name was on it.....of course while he wasn't looking). I was right! And, here he came to ring my door bell.

I had a lot of fun chasing around my pets again. I am not going to bore you with more pet photos instead, I decided to post a self portrait I did last night using my new lens.

Truthfully, I don't really care for this photo but, my blog has been abandoned again. And I needed to do a post. hahahaha

I have a much better photo idea but, I didn't have the patience for it last night and need to re attempt it in a few days.

So, I leave you with this slightly creepy self portrait. If you can't tell, all I really liked in this picture was my left eye.

P.S. I remind myself a little of Amanda Palmer from the Dresden Dolls or...maybe a little Marilyn Manson.

Visit to Swami's This Afternoon

I am not going to write much because I am sleepy. But, today I had a nice time with my sweetheart walking around at the beach called Swami's in Encinitas, Ca.

Below are some pictures I took and edited today.
