Begin somewhere; you cannot build a reputation on what you intend to do.” — Liz Smith
So excited! I’d been asking Bob (my amazing husband), a woodworker (when he has time), if he would make a red chair and sofa for my diorama setups. (I photograph these for my online listings for sale, as well as for the BackTalkCafe.com story set).
Photographing black and white clothes against white backgrounds has unique challenges, so I thought, hmmm… incorporate a piece of red somehow, which led me to think of red furniture. Bob can’t stand the thought of “painting” wood, but said he’d think about it; which was months ago. Then, all of a sudden: voila!
I know! They’re so cool! I’m exploring ideas for cushions of different fabrics that I can change out depending on the scene or setup. I’ll post more as I figure that out.
By the way, the quotes on this and a lot of these doll posts are grabbed at random from my Franklin planners; am adding them as reminders that I need to write specifically about this particular set.
