09:51 am - Monday Inspiration
Horribly busy day ahead, but first, a moment to breathe.

This morning, after walking Master Danger and before I worked out, I spent a few moments scanning Pinterest (as one does). British Vogue occasionally posts covers from their archives -- I've linked to 20s and 30s images before -- and today's image resonated with me.

June 8, 1938 -- a spring/summer image. A woman, seen from the back, strolls with her black spaniel through an abstract representation of trees in bloom. A book is clasped behind her back; the blue blouse and orange-brown skirt almost appear to move with her. She looks free, and smart.

I Pinned the image, worked out, and then pulled together my outfit for today. On some subliminal level the image haunted me, because without intending to, I am wearing these same colors of blue and orange-brown, just reversed in top and skirt.

Here's to freedom, smartness, and the power of good images. :)

May your Monday be delightful, despite all the pressures and lost hours.

Ooh, lovely subliminal inspiration. Last night we had a lovely soaking rain and today the sun is out. I hope for more hours like this (although we still need snow up the hill, desperately, desperately...)

I hope you do get more rain soon, and snow in the higher elevations -- but a sunshiny afternoon can be nice. :)

Hugs and a good start to your week!

The line from shoulder to waist is always so pretty with those dresses, and that's a great picture.

The line really does work, doesn't it? I am impressed.

Hugs and a good end-of-day!
