Photo Folie - Snow, Black and Ruffles

photo from here

TGIF and another Photo Friday! In case you are just visiting Joyfolie, every Friday I design a new pair of shoes {or in this case, boots} inspired by a photograph. I love today's image--the snow, the color, everything! When I look at this photo, I can feel the crispness of the air, the warmth of the tights and the weight and sway of all those ruffles. Today's boots are drawn from the same concept of chiffon paired with black and are made from a reclaimed faux snakeskin fabric. They are lined in organic cotton, and feature nude-colored ruffles and black satin bow. If mom wants to coordinate, I suggest this pearl collar black trim dress. The boots are called Vivian. I will be offering more.

If you're like me and your inner girlie girl is swooning, I have a few more images for you...

This photo is from a thoughtfully designed online shop called Lovely Clusters that groups handmade and vintage wares in artfully curated concepts. You even click on a color wheel and shop by color.

Another beautifully feminine image from here.

Here are a few random thoughts and quotes I've been thinking about:

"The power of finding beauty in the humblest things makes home happy and life lovely."
~ Louisa May Alcott

"My life, my personality, my habits, even my speech are a combination of the books I choose to read, the people I choose to listen to, and the thoughts I choose to tolerate in my mind."
~ Andy Andrews

Miss Ainslie gathered a bit of rosemary, crushing it between her white fingers. "See," she said, "some of us are like that it takes a blow to find the sweetness in our souls.
~M. Reed taken from Lavender and Old Lace

"God's purpose in us is not to simply make us beautiful, plump grapes, but to make us grapes so that He can squeeze the sweetness out of us." ~ Oswald Chambers

Have a lovely holiday weekend!
