Autumn is waning in it’s fiery, faerie glory and my thoughts have been as scattered as the leaves that dance and skitter across the ground with the breeze. I swear my focus is as fleeting as a real squirrels – one minute here, another there, always darting about, never staying in one place for long. It’s not a bad thing, per say, and I am know for my delightfully characteristic spaciness (to put it kindly), however with the holidays fast approaching (YAY!) and so many gifts I want to make, it can be a wee bit of a trial. Perhaps my focus will sharpen a bit if I give a more concerted effort to it and add in some much needed meditation. Until then, I shall give you this delightfully rambling peek at some of what’s been filling my time…
A bit of a blurry photo, but as you can see I got myself a haircut – the clavicut to be precise and I absolutely adore it to pieces! I have had super long hair for, like, ever and ever and even though I adore long hair, I wanted a change. I have been wearing it both wavy (my natural texture) and straight and both are so chic!
Whenever I take Nelly out (which is, oh about 6 times or so a day) I always come back in with several gorgeous leaves, or a twig or rock or something that caught my fancy. These sweet little baskets that I have a really cute idea for are holding a few of my nature treasures and catching the bright, late afternoon sun.
I’m not a huge nail art gal, but I do paint my nails all the time and I was particularly smitten with this pale, autumn-like combo. Add a lovely book, a pair of delicate fingerless gloves and a vintage ring and you have yourself a dandy fine photo vignette, tee-hee!
I have been playing with paper (as evidence shows here) and I quickly put together this darling fox from Oana Befort (download and instructions can be found here on One Sheepish Girl). It’s posing with even more of my leafy treasures – I just can’t help myself all of the leaves are so gorgeous and the colors make me swoon!
So there you have it, a bit of my sweetly scattered world. What is your world like?
