When I quit my day job to become a photographer full time, I started a little design blog on the side to occupy some of my time until the business got busy. It was really fun and easy since it pretty much entailed me doing a lot of online window shopping and sharing my finds. And I’m really good at online window shopping. (And… actual online shopping, but that’s a whole different problem.)
Once my business started getting busy, however, I didn’t have time to maintain my little design blog. I went weeks without posting and finally just closed up shop. I was THRILLED to be so busy with Katie Jane Photography that I didn’t have time for a side venture, but I do really miss blogging about all the cool things I find. So I’ve decided to start a weekly finds column on the blog, because I always love it when other photographers share stuff they’re loving right now.
So here are some of my favorite finds this week:
1. Deco Clasp Mesh Bracelet from J.Crew (The only item here I actually own! I got it for Christmas, and it’s probably my new favorite thing to wear. It goes with everything I own.) 2. I Love Photography Greeting Card from Heather King Photography (I love vintage cameras, and these little cards would be perfect to send client thank you notes.) 3. In Perfect Accordion Coat from ModCloth (I’ve been looking for a new coat recently, and when I found this it was love at first site. Too bad ModCloth says it’s not exactly the warmest coat.) 4. Hidden Animal Teacups from Imm Living (If you’ve ever been to my house, you know I’m obsessed with owls. How amazing is this teacup?) 5. New York Diva from Kate Spade (I’ve been all about blue shoes lately, and these are deliciously vintage feeling.) 6. An Octopus Love Affair Ring from C.A.B. Fayre (When I saw this, I immediately thought of my BFF who can rock giant rings like nobody else.)
And a few links I’m loving this week…
DIY Fabric Boutonnieres from The Sweetest Occasion
This Los Angeles Wedding by Max Wanger from Style Me Pretty
The Merry Newsinator (Yes, it’s a little late for holiday cards, but I just found this and I love it!)
DIY Papier Mache Tray from Little Green Notebook
Apple Puff Pancake from Simply Photo (I made this for John on Sunday morning, and he seemed to think it was the greatest thing ever.)
And that’s it for this week! I’ll have more things I’m loving next Wednesday! In the meantime, what are some things you’re loving?
(Also… let’s be friends!)
