I love bunting. I do. I don’t care if it’s viewed as overdone or trendy; it makes me happy and adds a bit of bright happiness to any wall. In our house, there’s bunting in Aveline’s room (of course), the bathroom, over the laundry area and even in the kitchen! So, naturally, I found myself drawn to these images from photographer Petra Bindel. She’s an incredible photographer; I’ve scrolled through this gallery several times today. Gorgeous!
Earlier, I had all sorts of things I was going to say, but I think the sun fried all my brain cells. Priscilla and Aveline and I were off exploring this morning, and I am pretty sure all of us are now completely melted — it was HOT today!
But don’t miss her very cool (heh) photo tour of Aveline’s time in a Brasilian supermarket, from our outing to Silva’s last week!
Today, on this Friday-which-doesn’t-feel-like-a-Friday, I’m trying to get back into the creative groove. I’m taking pictures of everyday things for a Day in the Life series of photographs I’ll post here later.
They are bright photos, of food and of laundry and of unmade beds.
But a few moments ago during lunch, I turned around and saw this. She looked me right in the eyes and straight through to my heart (which is now a melted puddle).
After seeing these images from Toast UK’s fantastically wonderful Christmas 2012 lookbook, I’m off to spruce up the decorations around here. (Now, does anyone know if you can order a white Christmas and frosted windowpanes through the catalogue?)
