Welcome to camp Peacock........
This past week was a complete blast. I am soooooooo grateful to have VICTORIA come out and have another photo shoot with us.
There is a new item in the line, a romantic safari tent. They are the most magical spaces , and they will be available from Peacock Park Design. The shoot was simply was shot day and night. When we lit the candles, Lanterns and firepit, it was unbelievable. I wanted to just spend hours out there.

There were so many vignettes that we did. We had everything from laundry lines with vintage clothes to authentic bits and baubles that I have been accumilating from places like Texas, local flea markets, and of course the Peacock Park Warehouse. There are so many new products that fit right into the shoot. It was such a fun couple days, and I am thrilled to be able to do it!!
Here's the hard part........I have to wait until next Fall to see it in print......NEXT Fall...How on earth can I wait that long/?? These pictures are mine, off of a couple different cameras, untouched, and as you will see, with spots on the lens, and blurred, but I wanted to show the general idea of the shoot.
If you could see the shots through their lens, it was simply exquisite....every shot looked like a magazine cover. Truly amazing.....thank you Brittany !!!

We even got Dinky (the donkey) into the act. He was saddled up with his canvas bag of maps, and an antique studded leather harness belt....he looked so dapper don't you think.

The ceiling of the tent has hand stampled fleur de lis, it also has striped canvas poles, and wooden finials on top. The tent actually has another room that attaches to the back of the main room, it can be used for small sleeping quarters, or private bath , I opted to not attach feeling that it really wasnt neccessary for the shoot. But of course, I go back an forth....maybe I should have put it on, maybe not.......I am sure when the magazine comes out you won't even know that there could have been another room, or that there will be plenty of shots that it wont even you all know what COULD have been....right?

I am so in love with my new "Paris" laundry baskets. They are a set of 3 stacking distressed will hamper baskets with lids, they look so authentic with the stencil fronts. I think these make the perfect toy boxes, or chic storage solution to so many , love , love them...

This incredible rare collapsable tub that has a heated water tank was my prize find in Texas. It was the icing on the cake for the shoot. We had a PPD wire candelier full of candles hanging above it, and lanterns lit all around. It was such a beautiful setting.

This is my giant pound puppy Tank.....can you ever guess why he is named Tank??? He is a big mush though, he just looks vicious.

well this is just the tip of the iceburg when it comes to the shots, and vignettes that were created at the camp. I hope you all keep you eyes peeled for the Fall issue of VICTORIA and grab a copy to look at the finished product. I am sure that it will be breathtaking. I am such a big fan of the magazine, and I am thrilled to be a small part of it.
thank you again girls......

Oh Gina, it truly is MAGICAL! *SWOONING* I don't know how we all will be able to wait 'til FALL to see it in print... but be sure I'll be anxiously awaiting that copy of Victoria *which I subscribe to*... until then, thanks for sharing some of the fab shots you took, which look amazing... and giving us a sneak peek and preview of what is to come next year! I'm sure the Tent will be a huge hit... I'd adore having one of those in the back yard... I'd probably move in... I'm still lusting after your amazing Conservatory... if I could somehow fit it on our lot I'd be saving towards one!

This is one of those post that you open up and just gasp. I love the romance of Safari tent and how everything in it transports you back in time. This will be a fabulous editorial for Victoria Magazine!

Girl you never cease to amaze me! I'm loving the tent!

This is just magical! My daughter called the other night and said I just HAD to stop by your blog and take a look. She was right, it's all over the top gorgeous. Don't have a clue what I would do with it, but I would just LOVE to own one of those cute cute tents! I can see it in the middle of a large shop with wonderful vignettes that I would change often. YUMMY!
