Can I say I’m glad? You know, that 2015 is over? Somehow a breeze seemed to stir as the ball dropped in NY. There were whispers of good things to come, fresh ideas to explore, a chance to expand instead of shrink and to act instead of react.
Yup, it’s a new year. Got up, got dressed and it felt pretty good. The weather is just where I like it, brisk with sunshine. The layers all came together and I even had time to snap a few pictures. This counts for a lot.
I thrifted this coat a month or so ago, and woke up thinking Today is the Day.
The next few pictures are from the end of THAT year. Since I don’t have still life shots of today’s accessories, I’ll gratuitously throw them in.
I’m pretty sure the missing hand and cut-off head were bothering me when I looked at this first one. The scarf turned out well though. Just noticed it’s the same pair of pants in today’s shoot. Guess I like them.
This photoshoot never got off the ground. Can’t remember why.
On this attempt, most of the pictures had a door handle growing out of my head. I like the color of the blouse though, and will undoubtedly revisit this.
I’ve got my sewing machines oiled up and ready to go. Ideas are swirling in my head as I formulate plots and plans. Here’s to a truly NEW year. XXOO
