Weekend Recap: Mini Photo Shoot

This past weekend I was busy working away on some mini photo shoots that are going to be used as headers on the new look for the blog!

Saturday we got to work on setting the scene.

We started with this:



Then we took apart of the garage and took out this beauty that I can't seem to part with, but don't have the money or space yet to get it refinished:




Why the shopping bags? Well, so glad you asked, one of the perks of the new blog is that it's going to have a classifieds section aka a virtual yard sale for our home decor items that we no longer want, but want to give a good home to. People from all over can come on and list their home decor items for free and set a price and then let you know if they are willing to ship or if it needs to be local pick-up. A sort of craigslist, but instead of having to search by location you can see everything all at once. In way it will be massive decorators closet that we can all pick through. :)

We then added a couple more props:



We were missing one more that prop that was having some diva issues, but we finally got him in the shot:


(Can you spy my featured guest in the shot? I think this is the winning picture!)

Of course I know what all you guys really want:


(Haha Jon had to ham it up for the camera. I think I'm going to start renting out my husband so that you all can get a little help on your DIY projects. :) )

So start cleaning up your houses and rounding together home decor items that you no longer want, but think others would and get ready to list away!

The new blog is at the programmer as I type. Should be super soon now!
