Pretty and Graceful

"Things are pretty, graceful, rich
elegant, handsome, but until they 
speak to the imagination, not yet 
         ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

  I think I am getting used to the idea that it is Fall. Our street is lined with very tall trees and the leaves are turning gold and beginning to drop. I love to drive up this street on a beautiful Fall day with the blue sky and the sun shining through the trees and the leaves falling in little flurries onto the still green grass. It is a perfect day! I'm sure I will be fully acclimated to Autumn right when it decides to become Winter - and then there will really be tears! Oh well c'est la vie.
On another note -- Sometimes (alright nearly all the time) I find myself possessed by a thoroughly girly mood and I just have to take some pretty pictures. This past week when I felt that way my dear friend came over and together we satisfied our longing to be little girls again and dress up! We made use of my new three-panelled vanity mirror (a fabulous find from a local antique mall this past July - I turned the corner and there it was shoved into a corner and almost completely obscured by a tall stand and some pots! So exciting!), which I have sat on my little antique desk and styled a "Vanity" shoot. I hope you enjoy the pictures! They are always so much fun to take!

Also some NEW ITEMS in the Etsy Shop
