James Merrell









Looking for inspiration for the shoot, I rediscovered James Merrell through one of the very first blogs I've ever loved, This is Glamorous where I can always find a wealth of delicious visuals and introductions. I chose these above because they relate somehow to what I'd love to achieve in my jewelry work and I wish in this shoot...I love his easy way with the camera and his subtle, earthy and often exotic vignettes, a natural disorder which is compelling in it's disheveled-ness. They offer such a beautiful way in---I wish I could live inside them.

Very nice post! I love the mix of florals and chaos/clutter/artsy!
I too borrowed from This is Glamourous today... she has lovely items on her site.
Maybe I'll see you in Provence tomorrow! Enjoy your weekend... Fifi

The photos are lovely...there are a few photos that make me feel calm and relaxed as if the photo is comfortable in its own shoes so to speak. Very nice.
