Barbie for big girls.

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year !

This week, holiday decorating is in full swing at Casa Berry.  I have been decorating nonstop since returning from the Integrity toys convention so today was a time to reload with fresh ideas…that meant a trip to Snohomish with one of my best buddies Jane. 

First Stop was Sweet Bee http://www.sweetbeebyrachael.com/

    • Thank you! I love going to Snohomish for inspiration. I have not seen the Tiffany windows yet but you reminded me that I need to go and check them out. I adored them from last year. 🙂

    wow, what a shop! I especially have a thing for reindeer and the ones in the picture are lovely! I’m decorating too today! Judging by your doll photos, I’m guessing your home is a magnificent winter wonderland! Too bad I’m not going home to Oregon for Christmas, I’d wan’t to come and see……..and the stalking begins…….dunt dunt dunn…but alas my first born needs knee surgery, after college classes finish and before next year when I don’t think we can keep him on our insurance anymore. I need to message you some photo questions, like what filters did you use for your new lights, do you always use a photo tent and the picture in backround like Eiffel Tower, are they real or do you somehow add them later? Sorry to bombard you, I just love what yu do. You pictures always look like they are right out of a magazine. You can email response if you want and no hurry. Thank you! Oh and I bought those black chairs from Victorian Trading Co. Love them, so thanks for that too! Happy Holidays my dear~

    • Thank you so much for the kind words Tiffany! I wish I could say my home looks like a winter wonderland…but truthfully, it looks like a demilitarized zone with blockades and debris everywhere LOL! I always hate this phase in holiday decorating where everything is out and nothing is completely done…everything is in pieces. It is part of the process. Sorry to hear your son needs knee surgery. Those aren’t fun…or cheap. Feel free to email me directly with questions. I can’t promise I will answer promptly right now but I can try. 🙂 The filter I used on the last set of Poppy photos is a simple “beauty” filter I purchased in a pack off of amazon. Typically they come in 12×12 sheets to fit into larger setups for professional shoots. I simply cut a small square out of the filter and used that with my tiny spot light. I fashioned a holder for the piece of filter out of a bendable wire. I use the photo tent a lot but not all the time. It really depends on the light I am able to get at the time. If I have really good sunshine, I don’t use the photo tent. As you are aware coming from Oregon, we don’t get great light in the Pacific Northwest from November through July so the light tent becomes necessary. Some of the elements I use, like the Eiffel Tower and chandeliers are photo-shopped in post-processing. Glad you like the black gothic chairs. I love mine.
