I’ve recently started decorating the house with cranberries. I have bags full in the fridge after working on a fun project for A Subtle Revelry. Have you seen her holiday magazine yet? I think it’s my favorite so far. Full of inspiration and bright white images—it’s a wonderland. I photographed and styled the cranberry feature—these sparkling tart yet sweet little gems included.
