Happy Weekend

I can't stop buying books these days. Emily posted about this same thing and I love how she said she reads them in bed like a novel.  Totally. I often have a stack of decor books by my bed - these are my current favorites, along with Jose Villa's new book and Handmade Weddings, because they are both full of pretty pictures and good ideas.

And here are my favorite photo related posts from around the web:

• The food photography class in school scared me so I avoided it at all costs, but I really would like to learn more about photographing food and this book, Plate to Pixel, by Helene Dujardin looks excellent. She makes everything on her blog look so yummy.
• Making some Polaroid Coasters would be so fun. Or maybe I will just buy these ones.
• I sort of wish I didn't know Photoshop so well because then I could have gone to this. If you are a blogger and want to learn the basics of Photoshop The Blogshop looks like one of the most fun ways to learn it (they are doing another class in June)
 • Love these inexpensive large format photographs by Debbie Carlos

Happy Weekend!
