Merci por vous!

Ever since I was about ten years old, I've had a collection of thank you cards that's evolved into kind of an obsession with now a few small box fulls of thank's for all the seasons, monogrammed, birthday, holiday, blank, and most of which are french themed {merci!} but now that it's monday and I'm down to brass tax...I'm completing the last few of my bridal shower thank you notes. Since I enjoy sending them and collecting all that is needed to say thanx in style, I thought I'd share on my blog a few simple things I love.{Personalized stamps are tres chic. You can get them at for cheap and since it was for my shower, I sent my photography themed stamps of a photo I took years ago...but I am very excited to get wedding photo stamps for wedding gift thank you's!}{Here is a favorite that's not frenchie themed...a vintage luggage tag}
{One of my all time faves...thank ye by Jonathon Wright & co}

theHORNE private jewelry showing!

Today at the store, I met up with my girlfriend Sara Horne to see her newest designs to get for my mom for belated mother's day since she recently lusted after some photos on facebook from a Trunk show of hers. Anyways, I had so much fun going through her recent treasures that we have a date for tomorrow in Reno to shoot some "artist's bio" pics of her in her work around town. Think urban portraits. Then she is taking me to her bead shop where she gets most of her so so excited! Sorry it's late, mom but Happy Mother's day...Love ya!Here is the designer in her own designs is my necklace I bought for myself! Love It!

My new Canon 85mm f/1.8 is already paying for itself, baby! Here are the jewelry shots of the new Soixante Neuf em! And this lens made shooting these so much fun + easy as pie. Can't wait to use it at our St. Martin's wedding in a few weeks! Wohoo!

Three Amigos

This week, we are dog sitting the poodle Tux and he is becoming fast friends with Bagel the puggle (also known as Basil!). Actually, partners in crime best describes their relationship! He is a very easy going old man except when it comes to the bunnies in our backyard! When his family gets back from Mexico (Hi Rosens!) we need to keep our play dates at Lake Forest beach!
