Scenes from the Weekend

Monday, January 17, 2011




































It was 90 degrees and sunny all weekend here in Los Angeles and it really truly felt like summer in the city. The weekend consisted of a birthday fete featuring a doughnut cake at my favorite Silverlake hidden gem, Cafe Stella, a visit to the newly opened Artisan Creamery in Pasadena (brown sugar vanilla bean with homemade marshmallow bits, anyone?), playtime with the petite-monster, Scout, some exteriors shots of my house/cabin (I promise more are coming soon!), and some tissue-paper crafts inspired by the local farmer's market fuchsia peonies; aka this weekend was filled with decadence. I'm really enjoying playing with the new camera; recently nicknamed Mathilda (said like Natalie Portman's character in The Professional - MA-TILTH-DA), and hope teaching myself the art of photography will gradually get easier as time goes by. Baby steps! Have a great week everybody!

  8. Because I like you, I won't feel too jealous about your January summer. ;)

    Also, what model camera did you end up buying? I'm looking and having trouble narrowing down my options.

  9. never mind! I circled back to the post where you shared the camera info. I'm considering the canon rebel series but probably the xs.
