something new

lovely
i did something new this weekend. something i was really excited about and kind of obsessing over for a while now. a few weeks ago jenny asked me if i might like to take pictures of some of the pieces of her new fall line. i said yes immediately. and then freaked out. what?? i have no idea what i am doing. but regardless yesterday we spent most of the afternoon together. i lugged around four cameras, a tripod (which i didnt use beth!) and a bag of props, and let me just tell you it was great. i had so much fun roaming around the city, looking at space in a new way. i thought i might share a sneak peek or two. i hope that's ok jenny! waiting for some film to develop, have a stack of polaroids needing to be scanned, how great is that? anyway, over dinner after the days work, we were discussing the value of handmade, and the willingness to pay a bit more for owning a unique, quality piece. i dont doubt that this is a sentiment that has been around for ages. i think we just forgot about it for a while. i mean, with jenny's line you will literally be ordering something that hasnt been made yet. she will sit down at her sewing machine, and make a garment, just for you and a few weeks later, you will own something that probably only five other people have. doesnt that sound wonderful? and believe me there is not a question of workmanship. i have seen her in action, i know how much attention to detail is involved. i know people in blog world, especially in the "crafty" arena, talk about how much their appreciation of things has changed. enjoying the beauty of everyday life, the value of a handmade garment, or the work involved in owning a small business. it is all true. and it is good.

h,
sarah sent me to your site...since we are living "parallel lives", and well, after looking around a bit, i realized that you are much more creative, talented, and savy than myself...i guess that whole parallel thing only goes so far:)

I thought I was the only one who purchased sewing patterns for sport. The top is adorable. I'll be thinking of it when I spend tomorrow sewing.
