sketti dinner

a weekend photoshoot for studio choo flowers featuring red anemones, red ranunculus, passion flower vine, oregano, and blue gentiana.

more birch

i just added some new birch sets with six and eight inch heights into the shop. i'll be adding a few variety sets shortly! these tubes come from canada, i do not make them. they are harvested from trees felled by natural causes (ice, storms, and lightning), dried, cut, and cleaned.

i brought about half of the rocks from the garage home over the weekend to clean and sort them. i was in heaven. this is what i did on saturday night until 1 am- yes, i am a weirdo. a few more pics here.
