The Mink – and St. Pete Sunsets

29 12 2012

I have every day in January, 2013 planned out and am already behind schedule! Argh. Ever heard of a mink stole? My grandmother had one with a face – which is extra creepy. Google “antique mink stole” to see what I’m talking about. Over Christmas I came up with this:

I don’t like the “dead mink” idea much. How awesome would it have been if people just kept them alive as pets? Although I’ve never heard of a domesticated mink. Also, obviously this woman is an anomaly for her time, so I had to give her a weird hat:

Anyway….I’m also behind on photos – here are some from my last trip to St. Pete, Florida:

One more sunset - from inside the condo. By the time I ran out for a shot, the sun had set.
