had a great weekend, although it did not include that many photos I do have a couple from the week dazzze..
made it a little tradition going to the Green Door Market on Sundays to pick up fresh flowers from next door-these are the second go around and pictures of new ones coming later. maybe.
speaking of fresh, I was walking around our premises and discovered a large black berry bush stocked with ripe-ready-to-go berries! This is the BIGGEST BERRY found, I zoomed in on Iphoto and you could see the moisture on an individual berry, way cool to have a good camera! after this was taken I ate it immediately and right then all the sweating && burning cuts from the prickly bush were totally worth it.
this is batch one of two, my neighbor picked another 2 cups or so and I washed’em up real good and baked my first pie! Super simple too, I found the recipe ((here))
the second pie crust, used for the top, was kinda gooey and therefore broke apart making it hard to cover so I improvised and attempted to make ‘weaved strips.’
ha, turned out ghetto but way Yummy!! especially heated up with vanilla icecream.
these flowers reminded me of the wild ones that grow on the side of interstates and such that are protected by the law and if picked you will be served a large fine. I’ve always wanted to pull over and grab a handful or two but paying the 2.00 in quarters is a whole lot safer.
top: Lola, purse&shades: vintage, cutoffs: diy’d 7 for all mankind, shoes:Dolce Vita
don’t really like this outfit all that much, but am really excited about these sandals. they are a little hard to find things to go with (maybe I’m just over analyzing) but they sure are comfy. This week I plan on celebrating the 4th with my family and catching some ‘healthy’ sun via the lake and my handy dandy SPF. def going to post the latest vintage gear whenever Savannah gets it up on the Ebay store…*cough cough*…
Ps//I was approached by ChickDowntown.com offering another reader give-away…would that be cool? or nay…
Ps+S//just noticed that Hippie Frou Frou has 60 followers-wow!-thanks ladies!!!
You all don’t even know how much your sweet comments and uplifting words mean to me, you’ve gotten me through a wild year and I really mean it when I say, thanks.

Those blackberries have made me want to plant my own blackberry bush somewhere on my property.
Also, I lurve just about everything about your outfit, but… the style of the shoe. The color of the shoe is excellent, especially with the lovely warm colors in the rest of the outfit. But… the super-extra-fabric-thong? Eh.

Those flowers are so pretty! I love your top.
CindyJuly 1, 2009 at 4:21 pm
love this post. it’s full of favourties, blackberries, pie, dahlias and great shoes. i think your over analyzing it. those shoes would be great with skinny jeans or anything short, especially if it has a bit of a bohemian vibe. which i believe is something your into, right? they look great on you.
