guest blogger - Lynne from Tea for Joy:

October 11, 2010

I am sure many of you know Lynne from Tea For Joy. She has the most fabulous inspiration blog and also owns Papermash, a really cute shop filled with pretty paper goods and more! Thanks for being here today Lynne! Be sure to check out her flickr + twitter too!

I failed in my original assignment, which was supposed to be a behind-the-scenes photoshoot of a 1st birthday photograph for my shop, Papermash. I'm still learning so much about photography. The lighting is the bit I really can't grasp - so my birthday photos did not turn out well, as it is dull and dreary in London.

Instead I thought I'd share with you some still life photos I like, from British photographers and stylists. Although I spend most of my life decluttering (with varying levels of success), I do love photographs which have lots going on...

8 hello's:

  1. I would get that baking photos in a heartbeat! I'd frame it someplace in my kitchen and just get inspiration from it daily. Great guest post!

  2. What lovely collections.
    and I understand Lynne, I use a film camera and sometimes i'm so disappointed when I get the roll back. I fail my own 'assignments' all the time - and lighting is usually the culprit. It's a learning process.

  3. Really lovely photos.
    I too hate clutter in my living space but these arrangements are real eye candy.

  4. Such a beautiful inspiration!! Thanks for sharing :)
    Ps: I'm hosting a beautiful giveaway on my blog. Here's the link:
