Morsel Monday: Issue 14

Fashion Shoot Photos

Happy Monday everyone!
Today's morsel is just a brief follow-up from last week's post.
I wanted to share with you some of Keith's finalized images from his fashion shoot last weekend.

The top two pictures are from the old house,
and the rest were taken at our friend Linwood's place.
He collects old cars.

Keith and I both go for the slightly grungy, grainy photos that suggest a vintage camera.

Perhaps you can see why I always hesitate posting photos of myself on my blog . . .
not really a model type in the least, especially next to the girls he is always shooting.
I tell myself they don't have babies or breakfast.
: )

I hope you all have a wonderful start to the work week.
I should have LOTS of new jewelry for you tomorrow,
maybe even a bit tonight depending on what I can wrap up before tree decorating commences.

This is the most perfectest recipe ever for taking along to a holiday party when you don't have much time
to prepare something fancy. With only three ingredients and an amazingly pumpkin-y flavor,
it's sure to have everyone thinking you spent an afternoon baking this bread from scratch.
Shhhh. I won't tell if you don't.

1 can pumpkin
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 box spice cake mix

Combine all three ingredients and mix in a large bowl until well blended.
Pour into a baking pan and bake as directed on the cake box.
Cool, cut into squares, and place in a pretty pile on a platter.



  1. I think Keith's photography rivals anything I've seen in Anthropologie! He is just as good, if not better! Great photos, every single one!

    And that bread, mmmmmmmmmm, I think it needs a little cream cheese frosting too....;)

  2. Nice photos, very nice!
    Do post your own pics, what do you care what others look like?
    Thanks for the recipe...I love pumpkins.

    Happy Monday to you too!

  3. I love the 3rd photo - eye-catching! Did she actually stand on the car or was superimposed on one? Thanks for the super simple recipe - anything pumpkin is great, too!

Take advantage...I'm sure he captures you at your best.
