You all know how we feel about outtakes here at 3191 Miles Apart. We love them!

Today we thought we’d share some of our 3191Q7 outtakes. It’s hard to believe that our issues have some 130+ photographs in them and we still have dozens and dozens of leftovers.

Above: A photograph I took in Portland, OR while getting coffee. I love concrete floors! Sidenote: I take a lot of photographs of feet and I get a lot of emails about these boots. They are nearly 4 years old now and in pretty bad shape. I’ve had them resoled two times and now I think I need to have the whole bottom heel rebuilt. They are Rachel Comey flat boots (which to my knowledge she’s not making anymore; all her boots have heels). I can’t bare with losing them. The grey leather is just getting good! If all goes well and I can find someone to help me with the bottoms you’ll be seeing them in photographs for some time to come.

Above: This photograph for the Deep Winter gallery was taken in our sunroom on a rare snow day. Yes. You read me correctly. We had very little snow this winter here in Maine. It was kind of strange. But when we did have snow things went as they usually do … big storm … big digout … big sun. I love Maine.

Above: I had set this photograph aside for our At Home feature but it didn’t make the final cut. When we were reworking a few things in our flat before we moved in, our amazing contractor and dear friend pointed us in the direction of a glass designer here in town. I had never picked out glass before in my life! It was one of the only things I stressed out about in our place. I had to pick out glass for this little bathroom window (seen here) and one in our big bathroom window. I wanted to stay true to the feel of our 1891 flat so I went for it and picked out old-school raised glass designs. So many people tell me they love this window. I always say, “I do too!”

Above: I brought two jars of these Maple Peanut Butter Cookies (recipe is in the issue) to some friends house for dinner recently. They told me they were the best they’d had. Score! I can’t get enough of them and they are so easy to whip up. My problem is eating too many … yikes.

Above: Oh Charlie. Another outtake from At Home. I just love how he covers his eyes. So sweet.

Below: Lastly, this is not necessarily an outtake, but rather something special for you guys. My creative team (special thanks to RTS & LSW) put together this fun little video on the day we photographed From His Closet (see outtakes from that Q7 piece here). The orange t-shirt and pink sweatshirt here belong to my sweetheart. I love to borrow them! And that is what From His Closet is all about … thrifting on the mens side of the thrift shop or borrowing from your sweetie’s closet. I love to add these pieces into my daily rotation especially when I need to spruce things up but don’t have the budget for anything new. And you know that feeling when you put on a nicely worked in t-shirt or sweatshirt. Sigh. So good. So without further adieu … From His Closet … our little video … enjoy!
