Stephanie Hanes

Holly always shares the most wonderful things.  A perfect example of this is the prop styling of Stephanie Hanes.  Perfect in its effortless simplicity...this is what my life looks like in my dreams....

Tiffany Bozic's hummingbirds

Remember my little friend...

I saw these and immediately thought of him...
Tiffany Bozic is pure magic...her work is the type you can stare at for days and still see something new.  Everything she does is perfect, but her hummingbird paintings make me weak in the knees.

I figured a little tribute would be nice.  It's the least I could do considering he stopped for a brief second, just long enough to snap one photo.  Goodness I adore this type of bird...

I am kind of dying over these photos...

I have always been a huge fan of the amazing Andrew Zuckerman.  However, my love has grown to new levels after paging through his new book Creature.  Animals in all there glory on a stark white background with nothing to obstruct your view.  On some pages I physically had a hard time pulling myself away...I felt as if I could see into the animal's soul...sounds all weird, I know, but trust me.  I am thinking I have missed the window to add this to my Christmas list, but maybe you could add it to yours....xo mrs. french



First of all friends I have made it to 200!!!  200 posts!  My 200th means good things for you...a couple giveaways to come later this week...
Now I have to show you these photos.  I love them, but find myself a bit disturbed and delighted at the same time...scroll down to see why this is.

Who took them?

It's Cooper the cat (in case there is some confusion...sadly, Cooper is not mine).  I am completely serious...read all about it here.

Oh and don't forget to enter my muntedkowhai giveaway below...so exciting around here my friends...xo


rachel denny

Rachel Denny...I love her work with my whole heart.  I cannot believe I went as long as I did not seeing her magnificent "domestic trophies."  She contacted me with a question about photographs and opened up her warm world of "domestic trophies" to me.  She is a fellow Portlander, and nature lover: "We long of a sense of peace and rejuvenation from being out in the forest and are drawn to the wilderness of the natural world, yet spend vast quantities of our spare time taming our personal surroundings....I am interested in these contradictions..."  I find

<span class=

her words fascinating and her trophies perfect.  Since our first encounter I have daydreaming about putting one of these guys above my fireplace or better yet a row of them (this line up would work nicely) across my family room.  If you have the same fantasies the oh-so-generous Rachel has made it a bit easier to call these your own.  bliss readers will receive a 10% discount now until December 15...just mention that you saw them here in your email to miss Rachel.
