California Trip – Part 2

This post has been sitting in my drafts since December, and the events happened even longer ago than that, but since it is late March and just keeps snowing, I think it seems as good a time as any to recap the second leg of our California honeymoon trip – a visit to Disneyland! We…

An A-lure-ing Dress

While we’re on the topic of sewing, I realized I never shared this novelty cotton dress I made last summer and so a post was quite overdue. I’ve wanted some sort of fish or fishing themed dress for quite a while, since fishing at the lake was one of the high points of every childhood…

Love Letters

At the beginning of February, one of the vintage sellers I follow posted a garment badly in need of a rescue. Now, I’m not usually one to want to alter vintage clothing – if it survived this long, I shouldn’t be the person to change it! But I do make an exception for things that…

Cardinal Again

More in the theme of “Frances dresses like cardinal in the wintertime”, an outfit from a rather snowy day. 1950swinter

Cardinal Colored

I have more California pictures to share, and indeed many more summer and fall pictures to share, but it was 3°F this morning and I found myself rather resenting the ice-free photos. And honestly, I didn’t have a lot to say about them. “In this picture here, it is a reasonable temperature. I was warm.…

Summer Sheer

When we were in California for our honeymoon, we spent a couple nights with my extended family. The conversation turned, as it often does, to family memories, and my aunt suggested that I might have a look at a few hats she had stashed away that were her mother’s — my Busia’s. (A note —…

Wedding Garb

I promised more wedding posts, and although I’ve taken my sweet time about writing them, I did not forget! Today’s post is going to focus primarily on the pretty clothes aspect of the wedding. All the photos in this post are by our wonderful photographers, Novella Photography. Unfortunately, we didn’t end up with a ton…

Slated for Success

I think I’ve mentioned before that the ladies over at Modern Millie are wonderful but also somewhat evil. They know my size, what I styles I gravitate towards, and how to get in touch with me, so sometimes when they get something in that has my name all over it they’ll let me know and…

Running Late

Well, we had a lovely vacation to California, where it was not warm in the slightest, and we are now back at home where it is also not warm in the slightest, but while I’m sorting through all of my vacation photos, here are a few very belated pictures from earlier in the spring. Seriously.…

Get Me to the Church on Time

So you may have noticed that my blog posting has been a bit… erratic of late. Some of that was due to my recent career change and all the extra coordination that entailed, and some of my blogging absence was due to another big life event: I got married to my love on Saturday! I…
