faded beauty

Find me at Jena Ardell Photography

I know, I’ve been on a real photography binge lately but there are just so many wonderful photographers on Etsy. Creative, whimsical and beautiful. Today I’m featuring the lovely Polaroid photographs.
I’ve been using the new Fujifilm Instax lately and it’s pretty addictive. Not just because it’s instant but because of the cool effects of washed out, high contrast pictures you can get from them.

I can’t help it, I love things that look retro and Polaroids are just that. Retro and fun.

Through the Viewfinder

Find me at Cassia Beck

Through the Viewfinder photography (TtV) is a photographic technique in which a photograph is shot with one camera through the viewfinder of a second camera. The viewfinder thus acts as a kind of lens filter.

The effect is so interesting, like you’re in a bubble looking out into the world, or looking in on another world…

I found these awesome photographs on Etsy.

This is one of my own.
I also found some beautiful and whimsical photo sets on Etsy. They’re so cute because they’re themed and buying four photos instead of one is just more fun!

Pastel. Cake. Love

I didn’t quite know how to link all these items in together this week but I know when I look at them I want to eat them, so I guess that makes them yummy looking. I found some amazing pastel photographs, cupcakes, candy and whimsical delights. I also thought I would show you my cake stands made from op shop finds. Anyone can make them at home, you just need clear strong glue, three vintage plates in descending sizes and some little sherry glasses. They are great idea for displaying and serving cupcakes.

This photographer is amazing, her photos are so whimsical and I love the pastel colours.

Nap time!

Don’t you just love vintage cushions? I know I have a whole stack of fabrics in my room ready to be made into heavenly cushions but I never seem to get around to making them.  So I have scoured Etsy and have the cutest cushions and pillows for you today. There’s retro, vintage, young and old. So rest those weary heads and have a nap.

For the love of photography

Lately I have become increasingly in love with photography. I have always been interested in it but with my new Canon camera in hand and my Etsy store now selling prints, I am feeling the full bloom of photo mania.
I am featuring this lovely photographer this week. You can find her on Etsy: The Light Fantastic. Here are some of her beautiful images.

Horsing Around

It was recently the Melbourne Cup in Australia which results in full on horsing around. The whole country stops and watches the race around the track, punters are out and ladies dress to impress. It’s a day to have a little time out, watch the race, sip champagne, choose a horse and for some odd reason, eat cold chicken. To celebrate the tradition, I have chosen some cute horsey items from Etsy to feature this week.
