Blacksmith Dudeoir


So this happened. I finally did a dudeoir shoot, and it wasn’t even my idea. The boys at Pound Town thought it would be smart to do some marketing photos for their blacksmith business. Knowing what sort of photos I normally take for women, they also thought it would be funny to do some more… well, its hard to put into words. A little hot and a lot hilarious? You tell me. For the record, the one with the big beard is my husband. (Happy anniversary honey! This year I’m giving you the gift of Internet fame.) Hope you all get a kick out of this series!

Mother’s Day Floral Workshop with From The Potting Shed

Last month, just before Mother’s Day, I attended a Mother Daughter floral workshop with the buds at From The Potting Shed, and the lousy weather didn’t stop my mom, my aunt Debbie, my cousin Alex and I from having a grand ol’ time– and going outside to take pictures in the rain. Earlier in the day we got a quick garden tour and then learned how to make spring twig wreaths and floral crowns. In between there was a catered lunch and some excellent photo opportunities.


We had a lovely time making our wreaths and crowns, but the real pleasure of this workshop was luxuriating in the ambience surrounding the French peasant gardens and the stone cottage that Elaine and the team at From the Potting Shed call home. Don’t even get me started on that incredible weeping cherry tree! Those pink blossoms totally made my day. Here’s a taste of all the pretty that went down at the 2017 Mother’s Day workshop.


Did you like the look of this workshop? From The Potting Shed will be hosting another very similar workshop called Fairies and Flowers on July 9th, 2017.

Thank you for a beautiful day mama, Alex, Debbie, and all the buds From The Potting Shed.
