If Only Grandma Was Here

Apple trees, ladders, picking teacups from the teacup tree, friends hats, Tobey, three different cameras, funky berries, inherited teapots, and books with pretty covers were the themes of today’s photoshoot.
Carrying thirteen books in one hand? Mm...let me tell you, it's harder than it looks.
And I'd be lying if I said that they didn't slip once or twice...or six times. (What kind of a waitress am I?)
I couldn't resist reading a couple of pages from this particular classic!
Tobey wanted in too, of course.
Coldwater Creek sweater, Forever 21 leotard, Secret Treasures leggings, Gap skort, mom's boots and ring, borrowed hats and dog from Jess
It was around this point that Jess got the idea to start stacking the teacups. She said, "If only grandma was here..." when a particularly fragile looking one started wobbling precariously at the top of the teacup tower. However, I can now safely (and happily) put out this disclaimer that no teacups were harmed in the making of this photograph.
It's teacup season! They seem to be the ripest this time of year...
...uh, we had a lot of fun.
All photographs credited to the lovely and talented Jess!
In other news, the show opens tomorrow! I have come to absolutely adore Our Town. Besides having a wonderful cast (and probably the funniest, most loony director who tonight while trying to read her notes said "Barf? Wha...OH. brad! Who's brad? Ohh. Right. Brandon! Sorry, it was dark,") it is a truly remarkably written play full of the most beautiful monologues and quotations one can hope to find. I'll be posting a couple of photos from our production of it at some point, but for now wish Annie and I good luck!



    This is so Alice and Wonderland-y and spring-y and makes me wish snow didn't have to come...mnargh.
