Spirit Animal

spirit animal peace flags

indie outfit

Lately I've been trying a new approach to taking personal outfit photos.  Instead of going to a public place or park to shoot, I just use my own backyard.  With a little imagination I can use things I have on hand to create an interesting scene for my photos.  Then I can take my time with shooting, freshen up in between takes, make adjustments, and have no pressure of being noticed or watched.  These photos were taken with my tripod under the apple tree in my yard and gave me a way to show off these beautiful spirit animal peace flags.  Throughout my whole life I've drawn guidance from nature and all the beautiful creatures in it.  These colorful peace flags remind me of the spirit animals and are so unique.  The larger ones I scored at the Oregon Country Fair last year and the smaller ones are from Down to Earth in Eugene.  All pieces in my outfit are from Miss Meers and Heritage Dry Goods, in Eugene, OR.  Details and online shopping links below.  Hope everyone has a beautiful week!

Mango Salsa

A little bit of my weekend here.  I made this delicious mango salsa from veggies I picked up at Lonepine Farms, love to drive out there on a summer weekend afternoon to pick up local produce and breathe the country air.  Hope everyone has a gentle start to the week!

New Blog Design


I'm back with a new style post today, styling up this peacock chair and, as you may notice, a new template design layout for the blog.  This time I went with a Pipdig blogger template, love the clean lines and even spacing.  It was very easy to set up and customize, I'm loving the new look for the blog.  Make sure you click around and check out the updated links, including my new "about" page.  In these photos I'm wearing a BB Dakota kimono, Michael Stars hat, and Seychelles sandals from Miss Meers shoe boutique, Citizens of Humanity jeans from Melange in Eugene.  Peacock chair from UO and vintage rug from Oak Street Vintage.  Additional shopping links below.  Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!
