{eye poetry & a few things ...}

Hi friends! A few things to share today ... first I am over the moon to have received this fabulous camera for Christmas this year from my parents ... I just wish I had the time to get reading and practicing, that camera is sitting staring me in the face and taunting me as I write my thesis {don't get distracted Nancy! Focus!!}. Soon enough, soon enough.
Canon Rebel T3i {blog pics should get a whole lot prettier soon!}

And speaking of pretty photography, I am SOOO happy to have discovered the amazing photographer Irene Suchocki from Montreal. Her work is just incredible. I've never seen anything like it! Ok so maybe my skills won't reach this status but it's wonderful inspiration. I was particularly inspired by her images of France ...

And lucky for all of us Irene sells her prints on Etsy!! Her shop is rather appropriately name Eye Poetry. I'm obsessed, a few of these lovelies must be framed and included in my gallery wall. Speaking of FRAMES, it's time to announce the winners of the wonderful frames from Poppy Tree Frames!

Congrats to Kerry of First Time Fancy and alsanderson! I'll be contacting you both via email shortly. A huge thanks goes out the the fabulous people over at Poppy Tree Frames for hosting, and thank you to everyone who entered!

Finally, I managed to squeeze in a guest post over at the lovely Vanessa's blog Decor Happy today. I'm sharing an organizing tip that I am currently working on in my own home, hop over to take a peek. Thank you to Vanessa for having me!

Love the photos. Her photos of the buildings in Paris looks like dollhouse, the lens and filters give her photos such a unique twist!

For someone who is studying their thesis, you manage to knock out a lot of posts!

Good luck darlin'

I love her work and have the second picture proudly displayed in my gallery wall. LOVE!! I'm about 1 month away from getting a good camera too.. We'll have to go out and become famous french photographers too ;)

check out my blog


Ashley Griffith said...

Congratulations on the new camera! I just gifted myself a Canon and a good camera really does the hard work for you for the most part!

Just a tip-- alot of Irene's photos are edited in photoshop to get that miniture village look or blurred out of focus look as well. and you can find tutorials for photoshop online...if you are like me you will be stuck playing for hours!!

Love your blog!


Sarah Klassen said...

That is wonderful news, Nancy—such a great camera!

Haha, it is so difficult, but stay focused—it will be worth it in the end :)

I have this camera too, and it's so great!! I bought the 50mm lens to use with it and it has changed my blog! Enjoy Nancy!
