last days of summer


summer ends tonight. the days are still 94 degrees here and we've been making the most of it. yesterday we went to a local brewery to share a farmhouse ale and take some photos with our new holga-style lens. 
i love it.



darin did some modeling for my shop. that's why we ended up at the brewery. he said, i'll be much more agreeable about all this if i get a beer in me.


check out that iris!  damn i love embroidered shirts. you can truly feel the love and beauty and care in the stitchery. 







i wore this DeGrazia pendant i thrifted earlier in the day. twice we have visited and rhapsodized over DeGrazia's Gallery in the Sun in Tucson; we were there on our road trip last fall. it deserves its own post and one day i will show it. meanwhile, i love the colors and shapes and tenderness of this papoose etching on wood.
 i also wore two raggedy cotton slips as a skirt. the top one is really tattered around the waist area but i layered another one underneath, belted it all and voila! passes as presentable for me.




 


then today we went to the river. the canyon was already shaded by the time we hiked down the steep dusty trail, but the cold water felt great anyway.

here's me after a quick skinnydip :)

these rocks are so warm, the perfect place to hang out on the last day of summer.


speaking of hanging out with my hub, here is a list of the movies we have watched in the last few days:
Drive
have you seen any of them?

that much movie watching must mean it's fall.

We watched the Wild and Wonderful Whites a little while back after a friend mentioned it...I am still haunted by those people.

I love embroidered shirts, that iris one is so cool. If only I could get my boyfriend to dress in shirts like that hah.

I wish it were still warm enough to swim outside here. The nights are cold and so the water is cold too.

And thank you for reading my blog and all the kind words you leave me. I really do cherish and appreciate them ever so much.
