when it was october

 I used a magazine cover outfit as my inspiration.
Hello ridiculous poses.

Here's my version of the look.
My blouse was thrifted.

Today's outfit inspiration is:
Elle August 2013 cover with Amanda Seyfried

My black boots were thrifted.

My nephew Speed Racer wore his Jedi costume.

My twin nieces and nephew got all dressed up.

I worked on pages of my Florida trip from 2007.

written at the airport July 31, 2007
painted 2008 or 2009?

Full moon this morning. Only slept 2-3 hrs. 
My guy is groggy.
It's 6:15 am.
We went 1 hour before flight leaves.
I was freaking out in the security line, waiting for my guy to come back. He was parking the car.
I wanted him to make it in time.
(P. S. : He did).

The last thing anyone wants is to miss their plane, unless they're in some played out fake movie/story, that I still seem to fall for.

garden green

I found a runway outfit I was inspired by,
 and wore my version of the look,

I also wore this  Hendrix shirt here,
and the garden green pants here.

Today's outfit inspiration is:
L.A.M.B. Fall 2013 RTW

My shoes, pants, and purse were thrifted.

My nephew Speed Racer sliding with the
 garden green behind him.

My nephew JJ with his dog Buddy on their
 garden green yard.

My art journal page from March  20, 2013
When I was in high school, I wanted to live in a story book house covered in 
garden green vines.

"...And his tears fall and burn the garden green

And so castles made of sand fall in the sea, eventually...

And to the ledge she smiled you wont hurt me no more

But then a sight she'd never seen made her jump and say

Look a golden winged ship is passing my way

And it really didn't have to stop, it just kept on going...

And so castles made of sand slips into the
sea, eventually" 

Castles Made of Sand by Jimi Hendrix

Some days grey is a balance.

Some days grey lets you shine through.

Some days 14 Shades of Grey is an album, I listen to, by the band Staind. We've seen Staind in concert here and here.

""This is my life, it's not what it was before

All these feelings I've shared...

An' now that we're here, it's so far away
An' I feel like I can face the day"...So Far Away by Staind

Some days grey is the background, allowing color to be the star.

My art journal page about our trip to the
Japanese Garden in Florida, 2007

I asked a woman who worked at the Japanese Garden
if the leaves change color in the fall.

She said, "No. Some things flower
at different times of the year. At the end of October, it is
beautiful, cool weather here."

Some days you barely notice grey,
unless you look.
