#2,635 Portrait Day + Mal’s 31st.

I spent 30 minutes doing my hair this morning which can mean only one thing: tintype portrait day! We needed new portraits of all the Mercantile owners and today was the day. It’s always a treat to spend time with our friend Michael and watch with fascination the entire tintype photo process. A single metal photograph takes 30 minutes from start to finish and I don’t know what it is about them, but there’s a magic that sticks to the metal and makes every portrait have an ethereal, heirloom quality you can’t find with any other method. 

I can’t wait to share them with you… When our brand new website launches in a week! Ahhhhhh!

Also, tonight my best friend wanted steamed snow crab legs from Red Lobster for her 31st birthday, SO BY GEORGE WE ATE SNOW CRAB LEGS. Like, tons of them. I couldn’t even take a photo of it because my hands were buttery and crabby. But she was very pleased with the whole thing.

Happy birthday Mallorie!
