Dream hat from series #9... photo by miss Kate Edmonson. To see more of Kate's work, have a look at her website- here. She is such a talent and we are so lucky to have worked on projects together for 9 years <3.
Wishing you all a very happy new year! May it be an inspiring year... we're setting that intention anyways, as we always do. It seems to work <3 We're excited for what's on the horizon... and we are so thankful for all your kindness, support and encouragement. We know we wouldn't be here, seeing a horizon, without you. We love our community!
In thinking of the definition of beauty, my mind goes straight to the idea of mystery. Something unknown, something you want to know more of... but there is a void of knowledge- or perhaps it just lies in an unattainable space. What we have are the impressions of something that we are unsure of... something that makes us wonder and long for more. I think we are always trying to capture this in our pictures, but for this series in particular, the idea of mystery is very present. We had thoughts of procession, ceremony and ritual on our mind. As the year comes to a close, it seems fitting to think about the things that keep us inspired, alive!... our own rituals and the things that fill our daily lives with imagination. We are excited to keep all this going in the new year.... and we hope you are too!
This photo series was a blast to shoot (in fact there are two- a color series and a black and white- #8 and #9 in our shop gallery) - we worked in collaboration with our dear friend, Kate Edmonson. Shortly before the shoot, we were attaching flowers to tulle like madmen... hoping they wouldn't die before we were able to capture them adorning our models. This was shot in Barrio Viejo- the historic neighborhood where our shop resides. This is a beautiful neighborhood in Tucson with old adobe walls lining the streets.
You can see the whole series and credits here. We hope you enjoy looking!
We hope you are all having beautiful holidays. This is such a fun time of year... including this week- after a big part of it is over, but also as we look forward to a new year. We love working this week- it's really fun to continue seeing everyone, along with your visiting family and friends. Thank you for all the incredible support. I just wrote this on instagram - that we feel so lucky - always - to see the prospect of continuing on with what we do. We love it fully. From buying, to displaying, to the daily work of being in the shop and sharing what we find with you... and also being in touch with so many of you through the phone or online. It's a treat every day. <3

Wrapping, wrapping! We love wrapping your gifts.... and we are at it- 9 am to 5 pm from now through Saturday, open Christmas Eve 10 am to 3 pm (which usually turns into 4 pm)... with eggnog and treats. <3
