I was sifting through photos from our shoot with Philip Newton when I came across this beautiful photo of wingman, arthur, elephant and brother.  There is something so calming about gray, perhaps because it is neither black nor white, a color open to all possibilites. In spirit gray is brave, loyal and true.  Where should gray live? Bookshelves, kitchen counters and I imagine all of our glassybaby grays in Steven Gambrel’s town and country designs.

Although you sit in a room that is gray, except for the silver of the straw-paper, and pick at your pale white gown; or lift one of the green beads of your necklace, to let it fall; or gaze at your green fan printed with the red branches of a red willow; or, with one finger, move the leaf in the bowl, the leaf that has fallen from the branches of the forsythia beside you… what is all this? I know how furiously your heart is beating.   ~Wallace Stevens

we toast to you

Commencement.

Grad parties and open houses.

Extended time with extended family.

Anticipating next steps…

college bound,

career bound,

or travel bound.

With graduation season just around the corner, these mothers stopped by the store to select drinkers to raise a glass to their soon-to-be high school graduates. Their college bound sons and daughters are headed to Arizona, Colorado, Montana, and UW (go dawgs!).  Graduating Class of 2012, we toast to you!  ~Annie
