Last fall, Victor, Zora, and I traveled to Round Top, Texas, for a day of antique shopping. I took along 35mm film and an analog camera and captured some fun and colorful finds. We spent the morning at Marburger Farm, then the afternoon and evening combing the fields and exploring the tiny town. I scored a vintage garnet ring, a new-to-us ’50s aqua dinette set, and some cowgirl boots for Zora. The next morning before heading back to Austin, we stopped into Junk Gypsy World Headquarters to look around and gather up some DIY inspiration of our own (as well as snag their book!).
I thought I’d blog it now, since the next antique weekend is coming at the end of March. For those of you in Austin like us, I highly recommend a day trip or weekend getaway!
Brittany & Chad were a lot of fun, and their wedding was classic, with country touches, like cowgirl boots and western-themed cakes from Classic Cakes by Lori. As always, Coordinate This kept the day running smoothly.
Soak up the beauty of their wedding day in the film below… full-length film to follow!

During September and October, students of Austin School of Film and HIVE Arts Collective shot, hand-processed, telecined, and edited their own Super 8mm films. I was inspired to make my first zombie film, starring my good friend Rachael, my partner Victor, my dad, and my toddler daughter, as well as about 15 awesome local Pflugerville residents who came out and gave it their all as our horde of zombies. The result, a film called “Zombie Daze,” premieres online for the first time today! It premiered at the Austin School of Film Friday night to a fun, enthusiastic crowd.
Do let us know what you think!
And happy October and Halloween!
