Peacock Alley, Down on the Farm

Peacock Alley's Penelope duvet and shams

Ah, spring . . . step behind the scenes with me on Peacock Alley's spring 2015 photo shoot. These gorgeous images were shot on location at Peacock Alley founder Mary Ella Gabler's family farm in Granbury, TX. The models are her own granddaughters, the brood of Gabler's sons Josh and Jason Needleman, who run the company with their mother. 

The girls are darling and so photogenic. You can view the new collection here. Some of my favorites are the ruffled Penelope duvet and shams (pictured above)—like a petticoat!— the Eloise  duvet and shams (scroll to find them below) that look like a meadow full of flowers, and the Vienna hand embroidered duvet and shams (scroll down to find them).
