  • Coral Colors Posted on December 9, 2011

    Sorry ladies, I had planned to put up my next free knitting pattern for you all today but something went wrong. I did all of my scanning steps like normal, but when I went to preview my pdf that I had created, all of the text was blury.  It’s readable, but I wouldn’t want any… Read More »

  • It Finally Arrived! Posted on December 8, 2011

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I really, really love getting mail!

  • Hayes Dress Fashions from 1958 Posted on December 5, 2011

    Hey Guys!  I’m back today with more Hayes Fashions, but this time it’s dresses instead of coats. Nothing perks up a Monday like vintage dress fashions, don’t you agree?! The main feature in the fall/winter 1958 catalog seems to be the new relaxed silhouettes. I myself, like a nipped in waist, but I can see… Read More »

  • Fashion Predictions from the 1930’s Posted on December 1, 2011

    Felix found, and sent me a video he though I would like that came from one of his favorite sites boingboing.  Peeps, it’s awsome!  It’s an old newsreel with fashion designers from the 30’s putting their spin on what a garment would like like in the future, year 2000.  Take a look!!!
