Speaking of leather, my biker jacket made a special appearance in another photo project of Miranda’s last week.
I thought I’d show you some of my favorites!
Check her out some more of her incredible work on Flickr!
I wanted to show you all some pictures I discovered in an old envelope of my grandmother’s trip to Savannah Beach, now Tybee Island, with her best friends in May of 1949. These vintage beach pictures are among the most beautiful I have ever seen. I can’t quite put my finger on why I like them so much, suffice to say they remind me of heaven.
Frances is second from the left
I love the overexposure. I might try to do this when I go to the beach in a few weeks. Frances is the one with those incredible white cat eye sunglasses, second from the left.
They apparently picked up some boys along the way…
My grandmother working it through that screen door.
Here’s day two of the trip, May 30, 1949. Frances is wearing a plaid dress in all these pictures.
I would like to call attention to the car on the beach. Love it.
Check out those bare feet!
It looks like they had so much fun, I can just imagine the laughter and memories. Scanning all these pictures has helped me see my grandmother not only as the great lady I know, but as the young, spunky girl who never met a stranger, adored her friends and loved a good time!

If you are interested in graphic design, interior design, typography, life organization, brand building, entrepreneurship, fashion (the list goes on and on) your new favorite blog is NubbyTwiglet.com. I cannot stress enough how incredible Nubby’s blog is. If it gives you any idea, I stumbled across her blog in 2010 and two days of almost constant reading later I decided to start If I Were Artemis. Oh yeah, she’s that good.
She is the queen of “life documenting” and lately I have just devoured her travel photos. The simple typography is brilliant.
If you don’t want to hop on a plane for LA by the fourth picture, check your pulse ;)
Another reason I greatly admire Nubby is her ability to find balance in life. In the midst of her busy schedule, she regularly posts first rate original content, manages to answer career questions from young designers and has responded in a day to the two emails I have sent her (she even posted a link I sent her on her blog).
Her blog is a masterpiece you will not regret spending hours on. Here’s the link again!
