I treated myself to a new camera several weeks ago (although I wish I'd got round to doing this before the end of the tax year!) so I decided to take some practise shots in the garden and capture the wonderful colours nature so perfectly creates.
A big thank you must go to Jess from Skip Town for her fab online camera tips - very handy! You can see her recommendations for choosing the right camera here. (The camera I bought was a Lumix DMC LX5)
'Mabel' (spearmint colourway)
'Suzie' (mint colourway)
'Fancy a Cuppa'
A few days before making our unexpected trip to the hospital (!) I organised some photographs for my new melamine plate collection. It was fun buying lots of different treats as props for the plates and experimenting with how they photograph. Of course the best part was having a cup of tea and nibbling on the cakes after the shoot was finished!
The plates can be found at my online shop here!
Johnson Bros 'Playtime' ceramic cup and saucer set
Amongst the beautiful gifts we received for our little man was this vintage children's ceramic cup and plate set from two very special friends. Its an English Johnson Brothers design called 'Playtime' and features very cute and quirky animal illustrations. It's lovely Jasper can get to start his own collection of ceramics!
