My friend Cheri is working on a new collection of dresses. I hosted a photo shoot today and I have a few “behind the scenes” pictures to share.
In our backyard Chris has created an oasis. I’m not the gardener in this family but, in the last couple years I’ve enjoyed helping Chris lay brick paths and built stone walls.
We staged a vignette using two of Chris’s doors and one of his tables. The turned wood pedestal of the table has an auto body paint finish. The top and base are veneer. Remember the “Gauguin” floor lamp………….maybe four months ago? It’s still not finished…………not lined or trimmed yet, but we used it for prop, it looks fabulous…………I’ve got to get back and finish that.
There’s the head vase……….I bisque fired it a few weeks ago.
Love this top!!

We had to set up in the bamboo forest in the front yard again. We got lots of new shoots this year. It was fun to bring the lamps outside. I made the rock floor lamp with pebbles from the beach at Ocean Shores and you can also see my sculptural copper lamp on Chris’s table. I finished the linen shade with the bug embroidery.
All the shoes are from John Fluevog.
I took this from the deck.
Cheri used several of her spectacular hats with her outfits.
This outfit is stunning. You can see more of Cheri’s work on her website. And I’ll keep you posted when and where you can see her beautiful dresses for sale.
