28 weeks in a riding cape with a kinfolk giveaway!

today i wore my new favourite item of clothing. a green riding cape (it also has a hood). the weather was perfect for gumboots, umbrellas, winter leggings and capes.

as the calendar flicked to a new month the weather changed with it. rain and mist cover our hills now. the blanket on the bed is pulled up high on our chilled shoulders instead of being pushed far down the end away from overheated toes.

i am welcoming this cooler weather with open arms. it makes me think of the life i lived in canada - waking to find fresh powdery snow, drifts big enough to cover our car completely. i miss it there. i'm desperate to show timmy the places that hold such a special place in my heart. 

we'll take our baby there one day too. our little eskimo baby.

wearing american apparel unisex gumboot, winter legging in burnt orange, polka dot chiffon oversized button-up in black and creme polka dot, california fleece cape in forest.

this week i have a copy of the best magazine in the world to giveaway - that mag is kinfolk. tim and i received our very own copy this week and i have been losing it over every single page. there is a story about a couple who travel across canada to stay in one of the places i lived called prince edward island (think anne of green gables). you all need to go there, promise.

i have a second copy of kinfolk mag that i will be gifting to one of you lucky suckers. all you have to do is follow my blog and leave a comment below! the winner will be announced a week from today.

you can find out more about kinfolk here.

  5. I'm a very new follower of your blog and loving the photographic feast! Beautiful beautiful shots...what a precious way to follow such a wonderful time. I'm not sure if I qualify in the Kinfolk giveaway because I live faraway (Switzerland), but it sounds lovely. Hope those Canadian days come soon :)

  16. Did you say PEI?? I love Kinfolk! I've never actually looked through a hard copy but I've looked into it a lot because the head designer graduated from the BYU graphic design program (what I'm currently in right now). I can't help but gawk at the design.

  42. My Anne obsession runs deep. I visited PEI as a teenager and stayed in a tower room in Charlottetown that I am sure was the inspiration for Aunt Josephine's house. The red-headed daughter of the house was away playing Anne for the year at Canada-land in Tokyo. Beautiful images of a Titian beauty!

    And I think I should get bonus entries for being Canadian and JUST that much closer to PEI.
