Looks like red for St. Valentines Day

At Park Place Design we are getting ready for the BIG day of love. I am so in awe of all the fun stuff I see on line I have so many projects started its not funny. BUT I did manage to start my mantel in the studio and I must say it looks pretty darn cute. So let me know what you think. The cute owl was a thrift store find. It was black so as you can see I panted it. the cute owl printable I found here http://www.craftyincrosby.com/2013/01/valentine-mantel.html

Apple Orchard Shoot








MY fav

Laura Monro and I did a styled shoot in late fall as you can see there are no apples on the trees and it  was about 30 degrees BUT the photos are amazing ., This is just a small sample she has sent to me. I had a blast working with the models and all the hair and makeup people. The Orchard is Cotants Farm Market in Hastings Mi.

Moon Gate Arch

This amazing moon gate is now ready for rent, you can be one of the first in the areas to have this amazing design for your outdoor wedding ...
