Autumn is my favorite time of year. The leaves turn glorious colors, whisper their journey from the branches of trees and the cool breeze is a welcomed reprieve from the Summer heat. Fashion wise, Autumn brings us layers and Earth tones, light jackets and a need for hats.
Mrs. Raynier and I had a nice afternoon enjoying Autumns approach. The fun poses and props are from the lush creative mind of Adorkable Peapod. I love Adorkable poses, they always make you smile, have a naturalness to them and invoke imagery that leads to fun photos like the one below. You can snatch up these amazing poses at the upcoming ARCADE Gacha Event opening to the public on September 15th!
The piggy banks are from Sway’s and I just have to say these are absolutely adorable! I had a piggy bank as a kid, though mine was from Spain, made of clay with intricate flora painted upon it. I recall the day it cracked and how devistated I was for it had been handed down in my family on mon Mama’s side, brought from Galicia, Spain where my family came from to the United States. Mon Papa was a patient man, and while mon Mama and I were in emotional tears over the broken piggy bank, he quietly mended it back together with clear ceramic glue. You could not tell that it had the crack unless you looked very closely and he explained that, “It is not ruined son, it just has a war wound now to show the adventure it went on from the top shelf to the floor.” My piggy bank had been saved by mon Papa’s mending hands and set back where it resided in my room until I was an adult. Funny how little things bring about memories. Thank you Sway, for creating a bit of fun to remind us of our youth and the things we grow out of. I’ll be sure to keep a piggy bank in the house to not forget those great times.
