…lady in a black tulle hat………


Made my first ever crockpot stew yesterday. Received the crockpot from my Mom last year, so it was fitting to give it a go before Christmas this year.  A bit too watery, but incredibly good.

Yesterday afternoon was my time for play, so I put together this set up for a photo session.  One umbrella, one SB800 flash, camera right.  Black background.  This is processed only a little, as the lighting turned out quite well.

The set up: Hat, is the same hat from another shoot.  However, I placed some black tulle loosely around it to give it a completely new look.  The feathers, is a fascinator, i.e. headband with feathers, that I put around it.  The necklace is a Myriam Haskell necklace, (love her gorgeous pearl work).  The gloves are from a Halloween shop for $6.  The dress –  is really a camisole, with a Betsey Johnson scarf placed over it, to look like a dress.


I found these very comfy dog walking shoes for fall……….

I found these fabulous new dog walking shoes for fall.

When the days are crisp, but still warm enough that one does not want to wear winter boots, yet regular shoes are a bit cool, these shoes are just right.

They are very soft supple leather like butter, including the band around the back of the ankle.  The ankles are high enough to provide a bit of warm to your feet.  The insides have a bit of fuzziness, not too much, just enough for that added bit of warm.  The soles are very soft rubber with wonderful flex, for easy bending of the foot.  The bottom does have some grip and bite when walking on pavement. And they are easy to slip on and off as they have a wide opening and velcro closures.

All in all, just wonderful dog walking shoes.  And would be great for photography walking too. Soft, comfy with the right warmth for fall.

They are made by Josef Seibel.  I have not noticed this label before.  But did the other day as they have some great Converse like leather shoes  in fabulous funky colors that caught my eye.  These were right beside those and I picked them up, loved the soft leather and tried them on.  Just right.

BTW – I have no association in any way with the label or the shoe stores.  Just thought I would pass on something that I really like.

Happy walking everyone! 🙂
