Still Stories…

While on my recent holidays I did a little bit of Anqituing and Thrift store hunting, quite a bit actually…I have no idea WHERE to store it all, but fortunately, most of it is quite small.

Regular Random – Vintage Peony

I found another bunch of Peony Roses, these ones have more of a vintage vibe, soft cream with blushes of pink, so so pretty… I felt they need a dark and moody vintage treatment, hence the old crate and cheesecloth, deep shadows and subtle highlights.
