Not the best lighting, not the best backdrop. (Hey there, little Chevy.) But a cozy polka dotted sweater, shiny gold oxfords and precious bow accessories felt blog-worthy all the same, and I was in a hurry. (Off to the Christmas Tour of Homes I told you about.) One day when my DSLR camera dreams come true I will adjust my settings and blur out ugly backgrounds to my heart's content. For now, just try not to look at the dumpster.
