Lauren and Tray

How gorgeous is this bride! This was one my favorites from the fall. Lauren has exquisite taste and pulled together a beautiful day for her family and friends to join in their celebration. I'm not alone in my enthusiasm as Style Me Pretty featured this wedding on their front page earlier this week. Their feature can be seen here along with the fabulous photography by Amber Vickery.

Waterlogued

A few weeks ago I started noticing several images on my Instagram feed that appeared to be watercolors, but were actually photographs that had been altered through the smartphone app, Waterlogue. I found it to be a bit addictive as I took old photographs and ran them through the app to see the results. As with many photo apps, there are various filters to work with. The bouquet above shows the "Natural" filter and then below is the same photo using the "Fashionable" filter.

Here are a few more results—a wonderfully worn pickup truck outside Rachel Ashwell's The Prairie. I think the detail is rather impressive.

And the Bethesda fountain in the snow from my recent trip to Central Park.

SproutVintage

A little over a year ago, I opened SproutVintage, an etsy shop filled with a mix of vintage items I find. It's actually been very interesting seeing what sells and getting to know others who are doing the same. Who knew there was such a thing as kissing bobble heads with magnets to keep their lips together? And how popular Mad Men has made anything Mid Century—especially barware. Here are a few of my current favorites (with links below) or check out the full shop here.
