October Roundup

IMG_5627 (1).jpgUrgh. October hit me hard- mostly because I wasn’t ready for its speed and for the cold that met me. I’ve spent the past month in Montreal, Canada and though it’s not as cold as it would be in January- I packed fairly light clothing for the cold that met me. But it also reaffirmed to me that I no longer like the cold- I feel the chill in my bones…the struggle is real.

 

 

“Textures”
One of the side effects of fall is the cold, you get the pleasure of the sun, but then winter teases you by slapping you on the face with a huge gust of wind. 😣 I took this a shot of some of the textures of fabrics which make their way out of storage to help us cope with the cold.

“Fluff”
If you’re wondering why I’ve named this shot Fluff- I have no idea, sometimes a name just sticks. I took this shot for my blog as a filler shot, but I really liked its simplicity, but also because of the fact that I  recently bought floral props to up my flat lay game. So here’s fluff. 😊

This shot is a bit Christmasy, but I just loved the vibrancy of the red of these berries on the bush. One of the best things about fall is the combination and vibrancy of the colours out there in nature! It really does open my eyes up!

“Trelace”
My mother recently moved to a historic area in Montreal, so when we took a walk on a lovely Sunday afternoon, I came across this house with so many lovely details. I’m not really one to like old features in a house, I normally like it for decorative items. But this house made my day!

One of the best things about Canada is the fact that we have 4 distinct seasons, and they are so beautiful to watch the seasons transition. On our walk we came across so many wonderfully changing trees, it was extremely difficult to choose!

“Hydrangea”
An extremely talented friend of mine painted this for me!! You don’t understand just how touched I was to receive this! It’s not often you get presents that are not only handmade, with such talent, but also with such sentiment. I can’t wait to put it up in my office!
