Lovely

Photographer Emma Mitchell has a great sense of color, light and composition. I love the use of vintage items, natural spaces and washed out colors. Today I need lovely pictures to ease my overwhelmed mind. I don't even want to be at work, but rather painting, stitching or sleeping. Do you have those kind of days too?

Love the color palate in these photos. Hope your work day goes by quickly and you can soon be doing that which would make you happier!

Me too. I have to work tomorrow and already thinking I wish I didn't have to go in. lol...

Stripes and numbers! Today is getting better already.

Rachel said...

Ooooh. These are calming.

I'm in that place too today. I have a million ideas for projects rattling around in my head, but none of them include my actual job, which I am paid for and expected to do.

literally every day is like that for me. my job is mind-numbingly dull, alternating with terribly stressful. i cannot wait to break free from beige cube-world.

josephine said...

You took the words out of my mind. Just lovely and a great little treat for me as I take a detour from doing work and reading my fav blogs.

hmstrjam said...

love those boxes

Kotori said...

I love the lighting and how it gives these vintage items and even more authentic feel. My favorite is the little Eiffel Tower on the tower of pillows.

I'm kind of in that mood now, I'm itching to make something! x

Ohh what a sincere confession, that made me smiley:)
#but rather painting, stitching or sleeping. Do you have those kind of days too?
Yeap, when I'm dieing from work and/or getting frustrated from this cold screen, then I want to be busy w/my hobbies to change the air like some painting, patchworking, going to marina or yes sleeping. These days are the 1st days of Spring and all seems 'new' and 'different' to me. So I stopped hobbying but concentrated for nature viewing and absorbing sunshine:)
Hope you had a lovely Easter, Di. With all of my best to you and yours.

Lauren K said...

Lovely, indeed. I love the soft colors. So spring!

alissa said...

such pretty colors - very calming. great collection!

jana said...

Very nice; I share a similar appreciation for this genre of photostyling. I wish I knew how to create it; a finer camera than I am accustomed to is on loan to me, so I am playing with learning it...dreaming of someday owning one of my own.

Found you via twitter and am glad that I did :) jana
