The Perfect Winter Package!


I was lucky enough to win several giveaways right at the end of 2009, one of them being a selection of marvelous prints from Diana's citylight photography shop! I had long admired her work (not the least of which because it contains three things I adore: Disney, cats and books) and was so excited to win!

Her package arrived in the most charming way and personable way (which really makes a difference to me) and the contents were wonderful!

The Disney prints are magical - oddly enough, just how I remember Disney being when I was a kid, sunny, a bit hazy, and with tons of bright colors.



This photo was on a new paper Diana told me she was trying out - metallic - which accentuated the gorgeous colors on it perfectly. To me the sheen gives it a bit of an edgier, almost retro-futuristic feel.



My very favorite photos were the book ones: I just loved the colors and patterns she used and as a vintage book geek, I am so excited to have photos with such great textures and old-fashioned typefaces!




She even topped it off with the cutest postcard, which I'm planning to send to a friend languishing in the north, waiting for summer.

Thank you so much, Diana, for this treasure chest of lovely photos!

Be sure to check out Diana's blog and her shop for these and other amazing photos.
