Sorry for the late-ness of this post, it was actually meant to be for yesterday but the day sort of got away on me. We have three big events in a row coming up this week – Thursday is the first of our awards dinners, Friday is a big town and gown event and Saturday is another awards night. The following Saturday we have yet another awards night and then things finally peeter out a little.
All these awards nights mean I get to bring out some of the stash of beautiful vintage dresses I’ve been hoarding. And I mean hoarding, really, I have so many summer dresses...
Speaking of vintage dresses, these photos were taken on sunny Sunday by none other than David (thank you!). But it's no longer sunny here, today is pouring down with rain.
These were taken behind our house, and behind me is our apple tree that I am waiting with baited breath to fruit. David and I picked masses of apples towards the end of summer last year and we stewed a bunch and froze them, then bought them out when we felt like crumble during winter. We also froze a bunch to make our own apple cider, which I did actually take photos of, but never posted – I’ll find those and post them soon.
I’ve also been thinking a lot lately about the photos I post. I really loved posting those baking shots last week that David took and it really made me want live up to my namesake and actually post ‘Pretty Little Pictures’.
I really don’t put in that much effort when I’m taking outfit shots – I balance a camera on my dressing table in our bedroom and voila, a picture is taken. So, I am going to endeavour to take prettier pictures. I don’t promise that I will be able to do it all the time, but I’m going to give it a good try!
Yes, I think my eyes are closed - it was bright!
Also, some of you asked where the final shot of me with my scones was – and to tell you the truth, David has now learnt that for every one shot I like, there are ten I don’t. There was only one photo of me with the finished result of my efforts, and I didn’t like it, so away it went.
Oh, and my Sunday also turned out to be somewhat productive and I finally sorted out a bunch of clothes that I had culled from my wardrobe weeks ago. But I am having some major issues getting rid of some pieces that I know I'll never wear again but still really love!! How do I let go of my somewhat emotional attachment and get rid of them? Help!
PS) I took this shot of the sunset last night - we have been having some beautiful ones lately...
