"I don't know that a graveyard is a very good place to go to get cheered up"
"I'm going across to Old St. John's after lunch," said Anne. "I don't know that a graveyard is a very good place to go to get cheered up, but it seems the only get-at-able place where there are trees, and trees I must have. I'll sit on one of those old slabs and shut my eyes and imagine I'm in the Avonlea woods."
~ Anne of the Island by L.M. Montgomery
Ever since reading Anne of the Island I've loved cemeteries. L.M. Montgomery has a way of making it so romantic and old fashioned. So when I saw one on the drive to my aunt and uncle's house - just a couple minutes walk away - I knew I had to visit it. It turned out to be a perfect place to get some photos - especially with my new tripod. It is so nice. It is small enough to fit in my black purse (the one in the photos) without being noticeable. This will help with my photos so much as I was rather too shy to drag my parents big tripod around the place.
So what do you all think of my new scarf? It was a Christmas gift from my dear big sister, Heather. I love it so much and it was so sweet of her to get me something fashion related since she knows I love fashion - even if she doesn't. The sunglasses are also from her - for my birthday - but I'm going to wait to tell you the story behind those till I get the rest of her birthday present for me.
