Paper doilies, jewelry boxes & a Japanese fashion magazine


Sometimes I find things at home and set them up for a photo. Like these for example: paper doilies, jewelry boxes, and a Japanese fashion magazine. I found the cover of the magazine to be inspiration for this set up.   A little girly, soft, and dreamy...I looked for things that I could find in a jiffy that would make up this little scene. And yes, this is what I like to do at home. Self-initiated projects...for what? For my enjoyment, my kinda fun, my way of occupying myself from heading straight down to the mall to spend money on my day off. It's really working for me ;)


  1. Merissa: Those paper dolies look so delicate!!! They remind me of the frivolité items my mother in law makes.
    I like you hobby and I thing you are very good at it.

  2. :) Thank you so much Euphoria!
    I do like the sound of that word: frivolite. Sounds French.
    Have a great week :)
    xo, Merissa.

  3. I meant THINK..... sorry, I write fast before little Larinka destroys something...

  4. :) I knew what you meant haha and I also know when you say you type in a hurry before little Larinka destroys something, my niece is the same..haha! :)
    Hugs to Larinka :)


So happy you paid me a visit. Mahalo!
Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

Hi there! Photography and art featured on this blog, unless where noted, came from my camera and were made or styled by my hands. You may not use my photos for profit or on commercial websites, but we might be able to work something out with a dozen chocolate macarons, and a juicy deal. Do not remove my watermarks or copyright markings from my photos (please see previous sentence). I won't bite, well unless you infringe on my copyright. But really, send me an email, I'm pretty nice. The snail mail on my blog includes my mail or the work from other artists and pen friends. I do my best to give everyone credit. But, in the case where I have missed the proper credit please contact me to address it. If you would like to re-blog or pin any of my original works please be the awesome person that you are and give me a shout out a.k.a. proper credit, and link it back here. Speaking of links, I do on occasion link out to other sites, however I am not responsible for the content you find on those sites. Sometimes clicking on a link I’ve provided may be a link to a site that will give me a small commission if you buy something from them. Which means that I might get paid (hopefully not in gum) if you click on that link, whoo-hoo. Reason why I’m telling you is because I want to be honest with you and frankly, because it’s illegal not to. That said, I promise to use any affiliate commissions earned for good cause: like stationery hauls and lattes. Thank you kindly, Merissa
