iPhone photography

Who says you can't be artistic with a camera phone?

Expensive Tastes...

While I was out the other day thrifting, I decided to stop by one of my favorite antique malls. Even though it is definitely on the pricey side, I love walking around and exploring the different booths, as this mall carries only antique and truly vintage items. Nope, no booths full of Smurfs or Beanie Babies here.

Anyway, when I came across this gorgeous setee, I just about died. It's blue, it's French-inspired, it's tufted, it's perfect...except for one thing.

It's $2500.

I can only hope it sits there for ages and gets marked down......or I win the lottery......

I plan on stalking this booth for some time to come......

A brief Indie Wed recap...

This past weekend I participated in Indie Wed, a bridal show and market at the Ravenswood Event Center in Chicago. It was an unbelievably fantastic show, and I had a great time selling and meeting other independent designers and crafters.

So, I was going post all of my awesome Indie Wed photos of people, booths, and the fashion show.....

Unfortunately, my camera died. And did I bring extra batteries? Of course not, because the ones in my camera were new. I came to the decision that I really need a new camera.

Anyway, here are a couple of the meager pics I managed to take with my iPhone (not fantastic, but at least I have a couple):
