Friday in Photos

This last Monday, I went to Melanie's house in Beacon for a photo shoot. We were there to shoot some projects from Heather Ross's upcoming book, Heather Ross Prints. But while we were there, Melanie let me use her Nikon to document the day (look out for the official "behind the scenes" look at the photo shoot on the STC Craft blog next week.) In the meantime, as I was perusing the photos I took, I couldn't help but see some as companions. Though I'm no graphic designer, making mood boards is one of my favorite things. So in this blog post, I present to you some pairings, courtesy of Melanie's house-and-camera, and Heather Ross Prints.

In the photo above, I love how the pink of the Tab soda can and the beadwork on Karen's moccasins matches the pinks in Heather's tablecloth, and how both photos are filled with that perfect grassy green.

Melanie had these old-fashioned sock blockers hanging on the back of her office door. Looped over them were a garland of flowers, not unlike these actual flowers that were growing in her garden.

Heather sent us a package with just about every piece of fabric in her line, but she also included this intriguing Pantone-printed fabric swatch from Spoonflower. I very much enjoy finding the perfect Pantone match to all of the colors that appear in Melanie's neighbor's garden.

And finally, the whimsical: Heather's pincushions and Melanie's dog, Molly. Each of them adorable.


  1. Hi Liana, I'd like to get in touch with you... especially because of my interest in your great STC Blog... I just don't know how to get in touch with you.... well if you become curious you might just contact me through my craft and photoblog

  2. You know, every time I see adorable pincushions, I think how nice it would be to start sewing. And then I remember that I don't really want to start sewing.

    (I feel the same way about dogs, actually.)

  3. Persis, thanks for your note! I just realized I don't have a link to my email on the blog...silly me! Will fix that. In the meantime, feel free to send me a note at my STC email:
