Retake


Hello!  Is anyone else as shocked as I am at how fast the Summer is going??!!  I do hope you are all enjoying a wonderful Summer!  It has been hot here in the Midwest and we have been busy busy with swimming lessons, activities, and trying to soak up as much fun out of this glorious time of year as we can before the school year starts back up again!!

I have continued to take photographs outside and decided to retake some of the product shots for my SHOP recently...


These photos were taken down by the creek at the local forest preserve...I am really having fun taking outside pictures so you will continue to see more from me :))


















Caighton was my little helper on some of the pictures!




And, if you have not had a chance to order the next issue of the beautiful Jeanne d' Arc Living magazine, it will be here soon and you can order it **HERE**





Wishing you a great rest of your week!!!

Tracey

Dear Tracey,

You have no idea how much you inspire us with your beautiful pictures and nice settings. I am absolutely lyrical of the colors and the beautiful surroundings! It's so inspiring when someone takes the time to pack, and arrange a nice lunch outdoors. Not many make use of the parks and green spaces to just that. Yes, summer runs from us. And I can not believe that it is only a few weeks left of it, then autumn arrives here in Norway. So we have to make the most of it!

Thank you very much for the inspiration Tracey. I have been a terrible blog friend in the past year. But in spite of my absence and lack of posts I visit you and enjoy your creativity.

Have a wonderful summer!
Aina

That's a lovely place for a picnic. I think the glass bottles are great accessories for flowers. They all look gorgeous.

Lili said...

Such a gorgeous setting and I love the glimpses of your beautiful little helper's summer frock! My goodness I would probably have spilled out jams all over those beautiful linens trying to do that! What a delightful picnic atmosphere you have created. xoxo ~Lili

Count me in Tracey! Summer here has taken a back seat and we are experiencing rain 24 * 7. But since I'm in India, rains are a respite. Love your blog as always.

Melissah said...

I just discovered your lovely blog and I look forward to popping by again for some more inspiration! I've just put the finished touches on my new blog ‘Coastal Style’ It will have lots of inspiration on beach houses, resortwear, summer food, travel and anything ‘beachy’. I had a lot of fun putting it together so maybe you would like to check it out if you have a spare minute.
