This past weekend I took (with assistance from Piercen) several late summer/early fall Vintage Soup Picturebook vignette pictures. I styled them on a back-to-school theme even though, depending on where you live, schools have been back in session for quite a while. I took the shoot inside since a) it was raining (and when is it not raining in eastern PA these days) and b) I wanted to try something different. I'm liking the moodiness of the final product.

This has not been a good week for getting items listed in the shop. I had plans to get ten items listed, but that just didn't happen. My job has been crazy busy, and I just want to crash on the couch when I get home and then go to bed. The good news is that the hard work is about to pay off--this weekend Lehigh will kickoff the year-long celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Undergraduate Women with a super fancy dinner tonight and then a huge tailgate party on Saturday. These events have been over a year in the making, and I'm looking forward to seeing them come to fruition while getting to hang out with the awesome Lehigh women I've gotten to know these past fourteen months. It's going to be a great weekend!


  1. LOVE the lunch box, and as ever, the photos are gorgeous--I should send it to my students to encourage them to study in style. Or let's face it... to study at all.

    Can't wait to hear more about the 40th celebrations!

  2. Or maybe you should take them to a vintage store--I think wa all do better at life when surrounded by vintage!

    I'm sure I will have many 40th Anniv stories to share!
