don't sit down...it's time to dig another one

In honor of All Hallow's Eve, the last batch of cemetery photos. Boo to you (and you, and you, and you). I hope you all had a wonderful time celebrating this gorgeous harvest season!

flutter for a day and think it is forever

Just like the butterfly,
I too will awaken in my own time

tryin' to win you with her feminine ways

We are having ourselves a veritable wind storm! It has blown the chill right up to our door and the leaves from the trees. Foolishly, I thought I could take pictures without any jacket, but that didn't last long. I had to race home and grab my cape and gloves.

I'm still in a gothic mood and I thought I'd nearly exhausted all of my black dresses, but not so. I was digging around my closet and found my stash of old high school dance dresses. This one probably was my least favorite of all the dance dresses back then, but, since its rediscovery, has quickly climbed almost to the top. I love the glitter (which didn't photograph well without the sun) and the sheer fabric hanging asymmetrically at the hem. I pulled out these tights to go with it because the pattern reminded me a little of spider webs.

I ain' 'fraid of no ghost

Some of you will probably recognize these from last year, but I thought I'd post them again. Seeing as how Halloween is almost upon us, it's quite appropriate. All these pictures were taken and edited by my boyfriend.

every wall is a door

A few weeks ago whilst hunting for more places to snap pictures, I stumbled upon this - a beautifully arched door...without a handle. How very strange...and mysterious - a perfect place for pictures!

I found this dress at Goodwill and I fell in love with the simple cut. Modest cut (but not too long), and such a pretty print for fall. It was just waiting to be paired with something velvet, so I threw on this hat.

just a-havin' a think

Well, after the gorgeous Indian Summer we were just blessed with, it seems that the chilly fall winds are now upon us. No problem for me...my socks, scarves, and jackets have been at the ready for weeks now!

There's something about trench coats that makes me think private eye...so not having obtained the perfect magnifying glass yet, I could pull out my pale pink glasses frames and have some fun with those.

he says, 'cranberry sauce'

These tights are totally the perfect shade for fall. They remind me of the color of cranberry sauce...yum. I like having them as a go-to pair instead of my beaten-to-death black or brown ones.

When I was working at the thrift store, one day I was sorting clothes and a whole bin came in full of old Missoni vests and cardigans. I pounced. At the time, I didn't even recognize the brand - I just immediately fell in love with the crazy colors and prints.

I bought this gorgeous Native American inspired scarf from a festival in Door County last spring. I'm excited to be headed back up to the Door Peninsula this weekend! I'll definitely be taking advantage of the gorgeous weather and luscious scenery.

come dress yourself in love

Somewhere, sometime I remember reading about a girl who got whisked away to prom on her date's bicycle handlebars. Today, as I contemplated choices of transportation, the thought immediately popped into my head and I promptly wheeled my Schwinn out into the sunshine.

At times I mourn the loss of high school and school dance functions where it was more appropriate to wear gowns other formal pieces. But, thanks to the days of my 'dress-up box,' I am no stranger to pretending. Today I decided to pretend as if it was a cool Saturday afternoon and I was on my way to a homecoming dance.

A cool, windy ride called for some sort of cover-up that I could shed the moment I stepped into the gym, thus the kitty sweater was pulled out of the closet and tossed on.

I love the look of the bright bold colors against the muted fall leaves.
