Craft Collecting

It crossed my mind the other day that the sun and warm weather will not
last forever; soon will come a day when the forest floor is blanketed by
snow and the beach will have ferociously freezing winds that chill you to
the bone. When that day comes I no longer will be free to walk the land
and find items for crafting. That day has yet to come though, for now
summer continues. Squirrels can still be seen frantically scurrying from
tree to tree. A family of ducks can be seen casually bobbing along with
the ocean waves. A raccoon hurriedly climbs a tree upon hearing the
forest crunch beneath our footsteps. This land is home to foxes, moose,
and coyotes, but we have yet to venture deep enough into the bush to see
them; our scent bothers them more than other creatures. We are a sight
to see, us two humans and a dog; Kobe runs wildly ahead, Paul keeps
a steady pace in the middle, while I lag behind, stopping to smell the
flowers, stare at a particular tree, or pick up sticks and abandoned shells.

And just when I thought I couldn't get enough of wearing blue and being
by the ocean, the forest is what calls to me as of late. Perhaps it's the nearing
of autumn that causes me to want to wander the woods donning clothes
brown and red in colour or plaid in print.

  1. Such a gorgeous photos- not just the lovely outfit but the whole feeling of it. I want to go to the mountains now!

  2. I absolutely love this skirt and these pictures are so beautiful!

    I am hosting a POLAROID CAMERA GIVEAWAY on my blog if you wanted to join :) || AUS Fashion/Lifestyle

  3. How many times did I tell you before that I'm extremely jelous of where you live? You look lovely as always, very free-spirited. And I won't be worried about summer's end, because where you are winter must be extremely beautiful!

  4. Aaw I love the pic of you and Kobe on the rock, so so cute! <3
    The outfit is beautiful, I love the arthy tones and natural theme of this whole post! The landscape looks stunning as usual, you really live in a fairy tale there :)

  5. I must admit, I am slightly jealous at your location and being so close to nature as you are! I really am not a city girl but that is where I ended up for the time being. I love being able to take walks near water and forest! These are beautiful photographs, and your outfit mirrors the surroundings well with that gorgeous skirt and hat.
    Enjoy, have a great start to your week! :)

  6. Love this vintage outfit!
