Gentlemen's Corner


This weekend was great for people-watching, and blog-photo shooting.  After having a yummy crepe at the Kantina booth at the Western Fair Farmers' Market I spotted not one, but two stylish men, within a few feet of each other. The first was this guy, with his cool two-tone lace-ups, natty chapeau, and sleekly tied scarf....


 Then I spied this young man in his patchwork cap and tweed blazer (which he thrifted for about $5) with leather elbow patches.   His friend was familiar with my blog so we had an interesting chat about self-expression and blogging.

I realized when I was about to publish this that it was my 700th post!
Time really does fly when you're doing something you love

  6. Thanks for bringing on the guys! It warmed my heart to see these fellows dressed so thoughtfully, creatively, and appropriately....ALMOST makes me want to go out to a cafe on this cold, 11 degree fahrenheit day in search of my own subjects...ALMOST. <3
