Guest Posting: Cannelle Et Vanille's Flickr Favorites

Friday, March 13, 2009

A few of you have left comments wondering how I find the time to bake, work, blog with my parents here for a month. Beside needing only a few hours of sleep, I have great friends willing to jump in here for a visit with you. I feel blessed to be able to count today's guest as one of my closest friends. We email each other anywhere between 5 to 15 times a day. She sends me pictures of her lovely boy and I of my crazy puppy (weird trade I know). I laugh out loud when one of us says "I made this today" and the other writes "get out! I just did that too!!" We can talk at length about our trade and not feel like complete pedantic geeks. She is been one of pillars of humor and stress relief (with Jen and Lisa) when I start freaking out about the book and everything around it. If we were neighbors, the key would be under the mat for her to come in anytime she wants. Scratch that...The door would be wide open, the coffee press and madeleines ready to go. I hope you enjoy her wonderful visit as much as I did!


Hi everyone! I’m Aran from Cannelle Et Vanille and I’m here today with a little “show and tell”.

Helen is a busy bee at the moment working hard on her book that we are all anxiously waiting for. She asked me if I could be a guest blogger and gave me free reign. Of course, it would be silly of me to come here with a recipe (after all she is our “Zen Master Baker” as I like to call her) so I decided to share with you some of my latest obsessions.

I am always amazed of the talent I find in Flickr. My jaw drops every time I see these photos so I had to, had to share them with you. Here we go.



Rain boots- I am obsessed with Hunter boots and I love how Michelle aka Shelba captured her daughter’s Hunters in this shot. Dreamy!


Flowers, color and yellow cardigans- Another photographer that I am obsessed with is Kate Headley. I love her use of color, how she captures the small details and how happy the people she photographs seem. This is lovely Maria.
Ethereal flowers- Here I am again with flowers. Yes, I am obsessed with them. Even small, delicate weeds that I find in my backyard. Au Fil De has an amazing collection of prints on her Etsy shop and I think I bookmark every single photo I see.


Natural light- I have become obsessed with finding the most perfect natural light for my photos so when I saw this shot by Eli19 I was in awe. Just magical.



Feminine drawings- I am completely in love with all these fantastic watercolors by Miss Capricho. They are exactly how I want to dress, how I want to move… I would love for her to design a dress for me.


Perfect skin and young talent- When I read in Olivia Bee’s profile that she was 14 years old, I couldn’t believe it. Such impressive work. Her images are romantic, nostalgic, delicate, fun. They make me dream, just like this one.


Dishes and props- I am in love with stylist Ljklee’s photos of her props. This collection of white ceramics makes me very, very jealous.


Vegetable gardens- I dream of having my own garden one day, but for now, I live vicariously through Nicole’s photos. There is something so peaceful and organic about them.


Summer berries- I love all fruit but summer berries make me especially happy. Peter from Souvlaki for the Soul is an amazing food stylist and photographer. His photostream in Flickr is breathtaking and I particularly love this photo. Simple and perfect lighting.


Basque Country in the summer- I remember going to Biarritz in the summer with my parents when I was a kid. The little cafes, all the flowers in the windowsills and all the chic women always made me dream a little more. I grew up only two hours away but crossing the border felt like such an adventure. Wicked Witch of the East is a Basque photographer who captures the everyday life like no one else. I want to be like her when I grow up.

You can see more of my flickr favorites here. And thank you Helen for sharing this space with me!

Have a great weekend!

Do you know How I stare at your photos???? Amazing talent and I am touched by your humble spirit to still see the beauty in other people's work!!!

morgana said...

Aran!!!! Good to see you here. And thank you very much for sharing all those wonderful sites with us. Wonderful photos. I wish I had a photografic eye but I'm afraid I don't, I just can enjoy other's photos as much as I can and your photos, Tartelette's photos and these photos... Each time I saw them it's like visiting and art gallery for me.

Mejor lo digo en castellano, que en inglés me cuesta muchísimo.

Muchísimas gracias por compartir todos estos sitios de flickr, qué belleza de fotos. Me encantaría tener un ojo fotográfico pero por mucho que mi novio intenta explicarme cosas de fotografía, no hay manera, no me entran, así que no me queda más que disfrutar de las fotos de los demás. Y tanto las tuyas como las de Helen me encantan. Tenéis una sensibilidad especial y vuestras fotos son tan bellas que cada vez que os visito tengo la sensación de estar en una galería de arte. Me encanta. Muchísimas gracias por tomaros el tiempo de compartir todo esto con nosotros.

Muchos, muchos, muchísimos besos.

anna said...

Eep! I love the little stripey beach tents! So cute! I've never seen those in person before - only in illustrations in children's books, so I didn't even know if they existed. And I live near a beach! Just more proof that you do, indeed, come from a magical fairy-land, where recipes never fail and everything is perfectly picturesque.

the unbelievable amount of talent you can find on flickr is awe inspiring. thanks so much for the picture posts.

Anonymous said...

It makes me happy to know that I am not obsessed with THINGS as you. Are you happy at all?

Aran said...

Anonymous- Yes, I am indeed very very happy. I love discovering talent and to see the way other artists view the world. I don't think I am obsessed with things. I consider this beauty and beauty makes people happy. I think it's offensive that you call these photos and the artists that created them THINGS.

And how come you cannot sign your name? Are you happy?

Shelba said...

Such an honor, Aran, thank you!
