Aunt Ruth

This time of year always brings me back to Aunt Ruth and her farm on the Michigan/Indiana border, with fields now fallow and it's pecan trees, hardy for such a Northern climate.  I would fall asleep and wake again to the murmurs of my aunt's conversations and the hope of some inclusion in the fold.  I wish my poor old Mac could capture the long shadows but alas, it's old school for me as it's just not in the budget.

I love Reila Skins latest group gift of the cozy poncho.  Part of me cringes at the idea of summer turning to fall but the northerner in me is ready to leave the heat behind and cozy up just a bit.  I paired it with one of Bingo's new Safari skirts, pulled on some new boots from Baby Monkey.  I adore Wasabi Pill's newest hair, Mimi; it has just the right amount of jagged to catch my interest and I believe they have some of the best colors on the grid. It includes a hair bow, which I chose to forego this time. Ready or not, I move on to another new autumn.
