Insta wknd

12 Nov



i said it over on instagram, but have to reaffirm it….bonus summer days in the fall are awesome! we had a beautiful wknd of warm weather and sunshine. saturday i toured a few church fairs with my pal beth and snatched up some nana-chic knitted goods. I got a $4 version of this beauty 🙂 Later in the day i finally tracked down the witchy winter coat of my dreams!  Sunday Eric and i started on our way up to Maine for a day trip to the beach since the weather was so nice. we were abruptly halted at the NH border by our car’s temperature warning alarm. I call it serendipity, because that led us right to an orchard who had amazing cider donuts! i had just bemoaned the fact i hadn’t had any this fall. we wandered through the barren orchard with a big ol’ bag of sugary donuts while the car cooled down. after our little adventure of kicking pumpkins, bee box snooping, and napping in the sun we called AAA and had our sorry car towed back home.

wtsb : fall

17 Oct


well lookie what i just found in my drafts folder! better late than never right? our most recent words to shoot by post was Fall. i shot it in and around a cranberry bog in Carver, MA. I’ll have many more shots of that bog and it’s bittersweet encased old barn to share soon!


1 Oct


it was a quiet grey weekend. on saturday we visited a few cranberry bogs. I’ve been determined to get a specific shot for an upcoming wtsb, so 2 wknds in a row i found myself on the south shore. i didn’t end up getting the shot, but i did stumble upon the most amazing old barn. it was in the middle of the Makepeace bog, and almost completely entombed in bittersweet! it really hasn’t felt like fall to me yet until this point…photographing weathered barn wood and bittersweet berries in the drizzle. alright, i’m fully on board with fall now!

clockwise from top left: a massive scone from sherman cafe / dried hydrangea in the window at sherman / on closer inspection of the barn i found a vintage makepeace box peeking out, desperately wanted to snatch it / bittersweet / the barn. i took a zillion film photos of this baby so prepare to see more of her!
