The Divine Diptych Project

I finally got my camera out and started a new project.  Here is  a little bit about it from the blog we have started about the project;
"The Divine Diptych Project is a collaboration between 37 photographers some of whom pair up every week and in each pair take a photo each on the same theme.  The diptychs you see here are the results of these collaborations.  Feel free to comment on what we have done, and tell us what the stories they tell you. "  
This is the opening statement for the new blog for the Divine Diptych Project.  You can visit the blog 
HERE. 
 (one of my other possible choices-I made the headpiece from fresh flowers and vintage lace and also made the big tulle collar from a soft, shimmery deep cream coloured tulle)
I was paired with the lovely and talented Heather of Heather Evans Smith Photography.  Her work is just inspired and amazing.  Please check out her website and other amazing photographs. You will love them!  Find her siteHERE.
 I have just copied what Heather had to say about our pairing. She is so sweet and talented. She was so right about our photographs;
"Merle and I didn't set any rules except for a square format. We both adore vintage styles. Merle went for a 1920s-30s feel and I channeled the 1960s. Both of us used flowers in our hair and neither one of us was surprised to see that the other had done the same, seemed like a no-brainer based on our interests. Merle has become quite a confidant of mine lately and I was excited to pair up with her on this project."
My Itty Bitty Baby Boy Tobias Greenmoss!  Love this Green-Eyed Sweetheart! He is my little Fae Creature for sure and for certain!  I found him as an orphaned and abandoned 3 week old kitten on a big lump on moss crying for his mother-that broke my heart. He was very sick and the runt of the litter.  For me, that meant he was all mine and I was the luckiest person ever!  That was 8 years ago!  He is still a tiny cat, but oh so wonderful and funny!  A Blessing indeed!

I hope this post finds you all well!
