Puttanesca sauce

All it took was one photography workshop to inspire me to learn more about my camera and to play around more with my Rebel. I got this camera more than 2 years ago but I still know so little about it. Thanks to the food photography workshop that was presented by Aran of Cannelle et Vanille fame. I have to spend more time with my camera, get acquainted with it and learn as much as I can about it.

Other things that have caught my eye lately:

This super cute Orla Kiely bag from the 2010 spring/summer collection.

The Giving Tree is one of my favorite stories. That is probably why I swooned when I saw this iPad decal.

I know that I am not alone when I say that I drool over Anthropologie’s pretties. I wish I had this beautiful platter. The texture is just lovely. And how adorable are these cute elephant shakers?

An inspiring blog that Aran shared with us during the workshop – What Katie Ate. I love how she photographed these cheeses, especially. Somehow the greys and blues in the veins of the cheeses are emphasized by the gray and shadowy backdrop. So many other beautiful pictures are shared in her blog, do check it out.


  1. I’ve been loving your new photos! Sounds like it was an awesome workshop! I have been in love with my camera lately as well, even though I lust for a new one.

    Have you seen Man Shops Globe? It’s on Sundance Channel and it’s about the buyer a Anthropologie. It’s so interesting!

    Thanks Erica, the recent pictures on my blog are from my iPhone but I really like the square polaroid-esque format 🙂

    I haven’t seen Man Shops Globe, we haven’t been able to justify having cable since we don’t get to watch tv much. But that man has a great job!
