Halloween is upon us and with it the marching parade of small pumpkins, princesses, comic book heroes, and of course Darth Vader. There was a guest appearance from a few of the local storm troopers and lots of candy along the way. It was a lovely warm evening with youngsters romping around the park – flashes of glitter and color, smiles, and hands smeared with chocolate. A warm thank you to all the parents that gave me permission to share their wee ones with the world.
How do you keep New Year’s Eve classy? One waits for the midnight train, dripping with jewels, tendrils of hair framing a striking face. Prepared with a jacket swung over a crisp shoulder, lingering, anticipating, waiting. Laughing and loving in the company of those closest to you. Embracing the moment, for all the beauty and heartbreak that it brings.
Life-It seems to come and go in huge waves of intensity and then a bit of drifting. I had really fun time playing with my mothers knitting basket the other day….lots of warm and cozy-making spun sheep.
yep it definitely feels like fall is on her way.
I took an afternoon off from all the craziness and went to have nails done. There is a very sweet gentleman at my nail salon whose specialty, are intricate nail art designs. I always love to watch the attention and care that he pays to the delicate petals as they unfold on my waiting thumbs. I then enjoy spending a week with mini works of art on my fingertips, striving desperately to not chip them sooner than one can avoid.
What does beauty look like when you stumble upon it? Can an old beat up bit of scrap metal, be full of glowing jewel bright colours? I walked by a scrape yard of car parts…and paused…the brittle, forgotten beauty of the material had a quality that could be seen to stand alongside my flowering nails or wooly basket.
I headed into town with my girlfriend for a bit of shopping and girl time. After a bit of strolling, poking, and browsing…I fell upon a window that captured my attention.
There was a lovely eye catching piece in the window of Blanc one of my favorite local boutiques. As a super nerd for all old, medieval prints, I went a bit maga for this one. It was the Astrological print mixed with a very beautiful cut that sent my hand flying for my camera.
A print that brings with it the changing of the season
Party at my place! It was a cosmic event of fantastic proportion. There is nothing like a healthy dose of BBQing, Hot Tubing, and Mingling to make it feel like summer. I had a wonderful time hosting, and even tried to capture a few of the ensembles that attended the event.
