For now, my design work has been minimal, and I've mostly been taking photos of objects that set the tone for Gerald & Joan. I think these pictures do just that. The locket was a vintage treasure of my Grandma Joan's, the old roses are from my wedding bouquet and a past Valentine's Day, and the tea is served in Franciscan 'Desert Rose' china -- the very same pattern my mother and great-grandmother loved before me. Jonathan and I registered for it on a whim, and ironically received more pieces of it than anything else. It served as the original inspiration for this blog -- the Painted Pink Roses.
