Sweet Peas
Sweet Peas

as much as i love pink roses, i love sweet peas even more. they are hard for me to grow and when i do find a bunch in the farmer's market they're not inexpensive. these were $20 and only lasted a few days, but sometimes you just have to splurge, a bit. well, scott does :).

turns out, the hardest part was taking a photo of me holding them even with scott's help. i set up the camera on the tripod, so all i had to do was get centered and it should be no big deal, right? not! i couldn't hold them straight or get my fingers not to look all weird, plus i could see the entire camera move when scott pressed the shutter. every time. dude, gently! so, i got out the wireless remote control, which he pressed while sitting on the couch. oy!

xo, cindy

ps michelle of blue moss has a lovely post today about our vintage shop. thank you, michelle!
