My Friday Finds  

Hello lovelies... How are you?

I received the sweetest gift in the mail this week from Amy. Thank you for sending me this beautiful book, Style & Simplicity A-Z.... It's so flippity-FULL of inspiration....One of those books you can turn to...when you need a little creative direction... not sure what to do next? open it up...and BAM... endless ideas.

THANK YOU so much Amy.....

I had to show you my lovely Hudson Bay Co. scarf..... The Hudson Bay colors originated on the Hudson Bay blanket. Now you can find these lovely colors on scarves, hats, towels, linens.... and more. We stopped at the Bay while in Winnipeg and I just knew this scarf would be amazing in photos....


Today's lovelies.... scarf and creamer from The Bay..... teapot from Stokes.... my mug from Anthro.....chair from Lady of the Lake.....beautiful book from Amy......

Happy Friday...... Link away lovelies....

Love & Gratitude.... ♡

Love the colors in the scarf. Yes, that book is amazing. I am almost through it the first time, so many good ideas.

Kim, Your portfolio is a perfect reflection of you and your style. You are right - keeping it fresh is so important. Love the categories, both new I believe, On Chairs and Eats. There is something about seeing your images - so large and in such an open and uncluttered space - that really lets them shine. Today's pictures are so creatively composed. It's the little things like the way you align the spoon or softly drape that colorful scarf - those things that only YOU can do! And the book from Amy, I ordered this, too, based on Amy's recommendation. And I love it! Have a wonderful weekend.

I have been loving these images on IG with the scarf and I recently did a shoot with a scarf I have not posted yet and this reminds me of it. I used my really large bargain vase of roses I got at the grocery store and my white chair and a scarf that I have never worn. The colors here remind me of this shot so much and I would say we were on the same wave link. I will post in a few days and you can see for yourself how we were apparently thinking alike. I really love this shot so much and how you achieved the different colors here and brought out a different mood. As you would say SO GOOD.

Looks like a fantastic book! Love your new scarf!

Your images, as always, are gorgeous. My "find" this week was a few moments (OK hours....) playing with Polaroid film I received today. What fun! My image is a triptych of my first 3 shots -- my dad's old Polaroid, cocktail hour reflections, and the pile of mending on the ironing board. Love finding beauty in trivial things -- it's always there if you look for it! These are all too blurry, but I love them all the same. I will need to figure out the sweet spot of the SUN600 if I'm going to use this film often-- too expensive to just click away indiscriminately. Ah....a lesson in stillness: pause, reflect, breathe.....then shoot.

I always love seeing the Hudson's Bay colours! Very cool.

And I also love the fact that we finally have warm weather! (In fact, today was just plain hot.) And flowers starting to pop up, leaves almost ready to come out. At last, spring! Hope you're enjoying it.
