Photography Props

I didn't know which blog to post this on, my photography blog or this one. i decided to do it here since i use this one more. lately i've been all about the photography props. i love all sorts of stuff, baskets, rugs, blankets, pillows, chairs, sticks, old gas pumps, old suitcases tables, etc....some people may not understand some of the ideas in my head for my pictures but i have ideas that seem silly to others but they trust me and go with it, and usually love it. ANYWAYS the past few weeks/months i've been collecting props (mostly for babies/toddlers). i've spent some money but i try to get things on clearance/sale or from value village. on all the props on here today i spent between $150-200. i figure it's a good investment. ok on to the pictures (which ironicly are terrible)
this little jewel was found at value village, it was $3. i almost didn't get it then i did and i'm so happy. i sanded it and spraypainted it.
i actually don't know if this will work it's a potting basket i found in the garage. it's a little flexible so we'll see.
this chair came from the goodwill, it was $20. i'm planning on getting it upholstered soon but i have a disneyland trip coming up so i'll wait :)
i got this blanket from pier one on clearance for like 8 dollars. and i knitted that baby cocoon with yarn we already had. i plan on crocheting a chunky one soon...maybe
PILLOWS! i have other covers too from ikea. the two small ones were just a few dollars at ikea canada and the big blue one was from TJ Maxx for $7. it was leftover from when linens and things closed...a $40 pillow!
i love this green stool also from ikea. i believe it was $7ish.
ok long one, i got the black fabric underneath everything for $4 from walmart. there is that white fabric on the left corner, it's heavy-duty duck cloth that i got for $17...40% off. then the fuzzy white fabric was also 40% off and cost $7ish
now this little guy is really larger than it looks. i don't know if i'll keep it though. it was $24 at walmart in the garden section. it's a flower pot. maybe it would be good for newborns with a pillow/blanket on the inside.
mmmm baskets, this was 40% off at joannes and i LOVE the color. i think it works for boys or girls.
ok i love this one too. also 40% off from joannes. i can just picture a newborn laying in this (with a blanket of course) on top of a cool dresser or something.
this was a little pricer, i got it from TJ Maxx for $50. but i couldn't help it. i walked away from it, then kept going back to look at it more. i think i'll like it lots.
and last but not least, my new backdrop holder thing. i made it all for under $15 from PVC pipe. i was going to buy one online but they are around $500 each so i figure this will work until i make the big time (ha)'s really tall like 6 ft 6 in. and i have big heavy duty clips to hold the fabric up. when i cut the pipe, i did it so it can be only 3 ft high if i want/need it to be. i made it all by myself i even figured out the scroll saw. now i'm just going to spray paint it black. it's why i bought that fabric. i'm also going to get other patterned fabric/shower curtains for backgrounds. anyways if you made it through all of that...well probably nobody did. i can't even make it through....

Amanda, I am so impressed and SO EXCITED to have you take Reagan's pictures! All of these props are amazing. I love the baskets of course, but I bet Reagan is a little too big for them. I also love the red chair and green stool. You have such an eye for these things. It's amazing.
