shake it

Our friend Valerie took some really lovely photos at our brunch on Sunday using Shake It Photo, an iphone app that makes your photos look like Polaroids.

I just got an iphone for Christmas, so maybe everyone in the world already knows about Shake it, but I had no idea and love it! As soon as everyone was gone after brunch (at about 8pm) I installed it on my phone.

I haven't taken any photos as nice as Valerie's yet, but I'm having fun trying.
(all images here are by her, not me.)

Check out more of Valerie's great photos, yummy recipes and other stuff on her and her husband Ryan's beautiful blog. But just to warn you, it'll make you hungry and make you want to plan a road trip around west Texas.

Thanks, Abigail, for the shout out - I really am addicted to the ShakeItPhoto app on my iPhone & use it all the time; I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! And thanks again for the lovely brunch on Sunday!

One more reason to want an iphone! I love my ipod touch, but it can't take pictures. I'm holding out for the iphone to become available on the Verizon network...

This is so cool!!!! I am going to download the app right now! I'm sure my photos won't be nearly as darling as hers, but it's worth a shot, right? Looks like a fantastic brunch you had there!

YAY puppy! So cute. And that chalkboard! That's the way to organize meals and make fun family menus. You sold me -- I'm heading over to their blog now.

I LOVE the picture of the deer & flowers. The lighting is perfect! It looks somewhat vintage.
