Styling Details.....




Eggs and Beans Anyone?...


Gabriel was very intrigued by the quails' eggs 
at the farm shop and asked if we could make some cakes with them..
mmmm...interesting. Anyway, before we do something with them (boiling!),
 I thought a few photos first would be nice! 























A vintage letterpress holder very kindly given to me
 by my mum's neighbour-thank you Tricia!











The vintage tin trunk came from my Grandparents' loft
 and inside is a copy of The Daily Express from June 1959!

    1. Thank you thank you Catherine!! Isn't the letterpress just gorgeous! Yes-Gabriel likes the bolied quails eggs-I'm afraid I'm one of those squeemish vegetarians who's a bit funniy with eggs at the best of times-ridiculous I know! We also have some lovely duck eggs which Gabriel wants to get his mits on next!!x

    1. Huge thank you lovely-wonderful comment. yes, I must take note of what I'm doing so that I can learn from it and not wait to stumble on the same method by accident!! I've loved shooting the food and flowers. Mmm-the eggs definitely more suited to boiling than baking-but also a mini omlette?!!xx

  8. I see a change to moodier pics in your last two posts! Perhaps the weather is getting to us - I find myself looking at ochres and plums and keep saying to myself 'wait for autumn with those'.

    1. Yes-have really liked working with the darker surfaces and for some reason I find it easier than white grounds. So, I'll be practicing those soon-after all, it is Summer-isn't it?!?!xx

  9. Wow! The eggs are sooooooo beautiful! I used to work in a restaurant where we would serve a raw quail egg just a top the steak tartare. I always felt bad cracking open these little precious eggs to do that. I would put the shells to the side 'till the end on the evening, because I couldn't bear putting them in the compost right away, lol!

    Thanks for sharing your lovely pics :)
