Nesting Urges

Personal

I don’t know what has gotten into me lately but I have this inexplicable lust for more space, a new bed, big windows, fresh flowers in every room, white washed kitchens, wood furniture with chipped paint, gauzy curtains, and lots of sunshine. My trip to Ikea yesterday probably didn’t help matters. And I love Pottery Barn but I really wish they wouldn’t cram so much stuff into their pictures.

I’ll order all of the following, please:

My kitchens (that’s right, I’ll have several)

Bedrooms
(Note the canopy bed. I saw this pic in the book The Comforts of Home by Atlanta Bartlett and I’ve been obsessed with this bedroom ever since! The bed, white washed floors, big mirror casually resting on the floor, old lockers, bench, sunlight… drool. )

(And why not?!)

That’s not too much to ask, right? So what do you think of my crib?

When I’m not scouring every single wedding blog out there, here are some of my absolute favorite home/interior design blogs:
My Sweet Savannah (where I found the great majority of the images above)
Small Place Style
La Maison Sur La Colline

There is a magic in that little world, home; it is a mystic circle that surrounds comforts and virtues never known beyond its hallowed limits.

I don't like being negative, especially here. I don't get angry very often or very easily but there are a few things that are very near and dear to me that, if threatened, will trigger my fury. My pictures are one of them.I am staying with family in Maryland while looking for a new place to live in Pennsylvania. I was in Pennsylvania yesterday when the movers delivered my things.I came back tonight to discover that many boxes have been smashed and badly water damaged. One such box was labeled "Fragile! Frames!". In it were lots of my most prized pictures. The soggy box practically crumbled in my hands. The cardboard just peeled off. ...

Free Photoshoot + DVD
Here's a deal for you…My grandmother in Scotland is very sick and probably won't be around much longer. I'll be flying out to see her this Sunday. When I get back I'll need to turn right around and fly to Connecticut to shoot a wedding on Halloween. This means I'll need to be away from my sweet pooch for about 2 weeks. I just hate to board her so I want to offer this awesome one-time deal: a Lindsay Docherty Photography Photoshoot plus a DVD of the images in exchange for looking after Emma for me while I'm away. This is an $875 value ($325 session fee + $550 DVD). Details on Emma: She's a 5 year old Jack Russell / Beagle mix. 16 lbs. S ...

I had a fantastic birthday this year. Brunch, a trip to the flower show, a delicious dinner, a bright green rain jacket, and cameras. Lots of awesome vintage cameras.

Maybe one of them belonged to a wedding photographer. Or perhaps a wartime photojournalist. Or more likely, a mother or father who wanted pictures of the family. And I love that. History passed through these lenses and now might reside in leather bound albums or pewter picture frames. I think ...
