We live in an old, small house, pretty much in the middle of downtown. Right across from our front yard there’s a beautiful park where most of the spring and summer events happen.
We can sit on our front porch and appreciate the music every Wednesday evening, during the spring time. We’re also just a few steps away from the two major art fairs that happen in town every year. This is the perfect set up for us, since we don’t like to plan things ahead of time, specially on weekends – to me, weekends are meant to be spent with a go with the flow attitude: do whatever we feel like doing, without having to plan ahead for it.
When I came downstairs yesterday morning, I noticed that the park’s parking lot (did I mention that the park is across the street from us?) was full. Lots of cars, some with trailers attached. That meant something was going on. So I got closer to the window and from there I could see a few tents set up.
Since the weather was still nice (it wouldn’t last, though. It got to 103F in the afternoon), we decided to go check it out. It turns out that the Fall Art Fest(? Fair?) was going on. The first booth we saw, as soon as we got there, was from a couple who sells iron work – garden decor and sculptures.
They had an amazing kinetic sculpture at the front, so we decided to look at the other things they had. That’s when I saw her, standing by the side of the booth, almost hidden amongst all the other cool stuff they had – the perfect prop for displaying my shawls when doing a photo shoot: my new model.
I checked the price tag and couldn’t believe my eyes. She was being sold for a third of the price of similar ones I’ve seen before! And I had the money :D! She came home with me and in a few hours she’ll be housed upstairs in the one-day-this-will-be-a-studio-room.
I’d like to introduce you to my new model. Seen here displaying Verão, my latest design (soon to be released).
She does an amazing job at modeling, doesn’t she? On the next photo we can see her back, and how well she displays the stole.
