Top of the morning to you!
Happy Monday.....I know I am super excited for this Monday....it's the last working one for the summer! I am a teacher and this is the last week before SUMMER BREAK! woohoo.
I am really hoping to focus on simpledaisy this summer and one thing I really want to do is.....have actual business cards and a logo done!
I found this girl and her work......it's AMAZING.

The Wheat Field
and she does business cards! Probably out of my budget.....but you never know:)
If you have any other recommendations...send them my way!!

I felt a little inspired to take some creativish photos....
Here was my inspiration.....
magenta and blue! I LOVE this color combination. Plus I was super excited that the peonies are blooming. Their scent is intoxicating.
Do you ever just walk around your yard to see what's blooming.
It doesn't take much to make me happy.....just a few blossoms:)
here's what I came up with after I was inspired by the magenta and blue color combination.....
simple sundress and a bouquet of peonies:)
{ps. never mind how pale I am ..... haven't had much sun in these parts}
dorky or not?!?!?
I love ... love...love this type of photography.
What do you call it?? still life...styling??? I don't know but I sure think it's fun. Thank goodness my husband is always willing to help me out:)
Hope you have a really fabulous week.

  3. Gorgeous flowers...and lucky you for having the summer off!

  4. I'm headed over to check out the shop now. Oh, and lots of pale skin on me too! The sun is bad for the skin anyway, so don't feel badly, just know that your skin will be quite gorgeous when you reach my age. *smiles*
