Glass & Sable.

Thursday, June 28, 2012

A big thank you to Ciara Sames for featuring me in her latest "Home/Closet/Tool" post on her beautiful blog, Glass & Sable. As part of the series, each participant submits an item from his or her home and closet, plus a meaningful tool. My choice for the latter? The Polaroid camera pictured below.

I've had it since college, and I have hundreds (hundreds!) of photos stored away from that time. I love it so much; it's been such a trusty sidekick. (You can see the rest of my post on Glass & Sable, here.)

What are you up to this weekend? I'm going to a BBQ, bidding a fond farewell to a friend who's moving to China, and celebrating my niece's fourth birthday (I'm excited for the cupcakes).

Whatever your plans, have a great one!

I looove polaroids. I recently began coveting this really awesome digital polaroid camera that lets you edit the image and save it electronically as well as print it out. I think I'd do a lot of decorating with them if I had one. :)

It was so wonderful getting to see a little peek into your life, Shoko! Thanks for sharing! And stay in touch, girl! ♥

I love Polaroids (and I have an old Polaroid camera) but I can't find the film for a decent price! Where do you buy your film?

Yaaaay, congrats on the guest post!! You picked the coolest things - the Polaroids are fantastic & so special!

Hopefully I can make my way to BKLYN Larder to pick up their amazing almond butter this weekend. I also have some babysitting, a BBQ & (fingers crossed) some light shopping on the schedule! Have a great weekend Sho!!

I love Polaroid photos! Maybe it's all in my head, but I think they capture candidness in a way that no other kind of photo can. Also, great feature on you at Glass & Sable! I LOVE that ring of yours. It was lovely to get a peek into your life :-) Have a great weekend!

I love polaroids! I had one with me when I met my boyfriend and he still carries around the pic he took of me and my friends! Have a fantastic weekend!

Shoko said...

Thanks so much, everyone!

Hauna, of course you're in there! You're in so many of my very favorites!

Ciara, my pleasure! Thank YOU - and yes, let's stay in touch!

Amy, I get mine at the Impossible Project - though I have to admit, I don't buy nearly as much as I used to - it's expensive!

Kathy, thank you! So glad you liked it :)

Angela, that is so sweet!

Lisa said...

Shoko, I loved this feature! Thanks for giving us a glimpse into your life! I'd love to have a polaroid camera - I'd be taking pictures all.the.time!
We just got back from a birthday celebration and on Sunday we're leaving for a road trip. Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy your niece's birthday (and the cupcakes, of course ;)

For me, the most truthful and creative photographs are from polaroid cameras. :)

Happy weekend. :)

I agree that the impossible proj is expensivvee, I wish we could get the student discount in the US!
Your film came out so good!
My pictures are always overexposed and I get that leak in the top, since I have to press down my polaroid camera as the film rolls out..oh well!
btw you are so KAWAIIII!
