Loving Life after 50

Its a High Lo Maxi Day and a Labour of Fashion Link up

Today I finally had a chance to catch up on some blog posts from some of my favourite peeps and one stood out for me, How to get the Most from Styled Stock Photos. Anne always leads me in directions I never quite expect but always really enjoy.  Go figure that there would be so many places that one could purchase awesome photos from, just to use on your blog, hello where have I been, living in the 90’s I guess.  On a serious note, it is a cool concept and I did spend a bit of time ( like a lot of time) perusing pretty pictures… and then I thought hey lets gather all sorts of things together and try to capture my own. I have to tell you I have one crooked eye, I swear I thought the journals were straight and forget the pencils … some turned out Ok and some I may use but it was really fun experimenting and wasting an evening.
Funny concept taking pictures of anything but not me on my blog. I also used the time to try and take some photos of the awesome glassware my sister etched for me. She made me Blog Wine Glasses that have my catch phrase on one side ” First we Blog, Then we Wine” and they have glitter stems. How cute are these and yes they really do make the wine taste better ( Caution do not fill your glass this full I was just trying to get the etching to show through)

and she made wine glasses for the band ( who by the way will get a post of their own because shouting this from the rooftops they are in the top six and will be performing live on August 21, so Toronto people come visit me and cheer them on OK)

The Honest Heart Collective Wine glasses
 and mini mason jar shooter glasses and a few more surprises I will show you later.

How cool is it, I have my own personal T Shirt and Etching shop…. I sure am happy my sister loves me.. Pictures are all inspired by Anne’s post as I try and upp the dazzle on the blog.
From an outfit perspective, well I threw together a few pieces that were a hit last year but added a different shoe and hair.

My Old Navy Hi-lo Dress, a Target Denim Vest and an Old Navy Sandal, simple but classic. 
Add a sock bun to the mix and a simple jewellery set from Avon
