Arid Adornments

As the weather heats up, it seems like the perfect time to roll out those succulent cactus prints.  I picked these up at ModCloth's Memorial Day sale for a song.  Love the print, love the length and I love the light, airy fabric.  Perfect for the rising temps.

Belle & Chip

It's been a while since I've done any cosplay outfits, so I decided to put together a Beauty and the Beast costume.  I don't have long enough hair to do Belle's full style, but I did my best with what I have and I thought this yellow dress from SheIn worked well for a more causal, if not somewhat Grecian style, with the Chip Purse.  Is it perfect?  No.  Does it need to be?  Also, no.  It's all just for fun and I did enjoy putting this outfit together and taking pics with these beautiful roses.

Support Your Local Wild Flowers

I find all sorts of clever things that nature holds while I'm stopping to small the flowers, insects and blossoms I've never seen or heard of before, all in their own micro world.  And I always wonder if they're aware of me, or if I'm just too big to even catch their notice.  They are probably  far too busy to bother much with me.

Peach Eyelet

I'm coming around to jumpsuits.  I've done a couple of posts about them and this one is my favorite pick for summer.  Cotton, eyelet, and a beautiful peachy color?  Yes, please!  I think the tie front and cut away at the sides adds to the charm and helps to create a more balanced silhouette.  I think I'll be all ready for the blackberry picking days coming up next month with this little number.

Cherry-O!

Animals never cease to amuse me.  You're never alone if you live on a farm...even when you really want to be alone.  There are times when I want a quiet, solitary walk to process my thoughts, but there is no such thing on a farm.  Each time I venture out for a walk the dog and at least one or two cats follow and occasionally a chicken or two comes along.  The most likely reason they come with me is that they think I'm leading them to food, but I like to think it's because they like spending time with me.

Today I wasn't out walking alone, actually I had both my girls along to play photographer for me.  We went to my parents' farm on a sunny afternoon when school let out and I brought along the tripod and set up the shots while they stood in for me and then they'd switch with me to press the button.  It worked well and they were great help with very little complaining.  But, of course the animals had to come with us and this very old dog, Bruno, who first wandered onto this farm when my girls were just learning to toddle, couldn't resist bombing a photo or two.  I had to designate one daughter as the animal wrangler and of course Bruno didn't mind because it meant lots of dedicated attention.  Another dog came along too, but she's more independent and stayed busy chasing various things until it was time to go home.  Her name is Dot or Deedee or something...we've never really connected because I find her annoying...and so does Bruno.
