Brass is back

Brass is back!

But it’s not your mom’s brass from the 90s. Think gorgeous, satiny luster. Think industrial, but warmer than the cool metal tones we’ve been seeing. It’s the “poor man’s gold.” Which for this girl on a budget, is music to the ears! I for one am beyond excited and can’t wait to start using it in my house. It seems to pair best with cool or neon colors. Think contrast.

What do you think of this new trend? Is it time for brass to have it’s moment again, or too soon?

Foggy night after the rain

Just thought that I would share a photo with all of you! I took this as soon as I got back from work. I love shots of fog….there’s something so mysterious and ethereal about them. This is my first time shooting fog with my Nikon that I got back in August, and I thought it turned out pretty good! Thoughts?
