Love & Lilacs first photo shoot

British weather is so contrary. Yesterday it felt cold enough for snow and today was deliciously spring like. With less than a month until my first craft market stall in St Albans I need to get cracking on some photos for my business cards to hand out on the day. I was having an, ahem, 'working from home day' so I took advantage of the lovely weather and ventured down to the summerhouse for a bit of a photo shoot.

I bought this lovely old crate in a Berkhamsted junk shop a few weeks back. I think it will look great for displaying cushions on my market stall.

I also created an indoor 'studio' with white flip chart paper to shoot my soaps. I was quite pleased with how they turned out. What do you think?

Any Etsysellers out there? I've just started up an Etsy shop (loveandlilac) and would love to hear of your experiences of selling this way.

Right. Fun over. Back to the day job...


  1. Hello Louise,
    We had snow this morning, but seeing the beautiful fabric of your cushions and hearts ... made me think of Spring !
    Love that old crate, I have several of those.
    The soaps look great !
    I wish you lots of success with your Etsy shop !
    Nice week,

  2. Thanks Sylvia. Starting selling is a bit of an adventure. I like to make colourful, cheery things! There's snow up in the north today but thankfully not down here in the south of England. Roll on spring! Louise x
