Aunt Lois

On Monday, my great-aunt Lois Yost left to go back to her home in PA. We spent a few fun evenings with her and Grandma, and we shared a lot of laughs.

Covet Central

Hello there girlies! (and- um- others) For lack of a priest, I must confess to you one of my weaknesses. Or maybe I just want company while I swoon over pretty dresses. I’m now going to show you some of the goodies I have discovered recently.

On recommendation from my friend, Mrs. Mallery, I went to April Cornell’s place and found the most wonderful blouses and nighties. My favorite: (although it’s really impossible to choose)

Also, if you are in the mood for Titanic-era tea dresses, there is the lovely collection from Nataya. Some of their stuff is frankly, skimpy, and the models look like retrievals from the morgue, but the tea dresses are so pretty! I love the layers of beautiful embroidery.

The Peruvian Connection is not for serious inquiries, unless you are the type who regularly spends $398 on one item. My pick: the sketchbook dress

Last, but not least, a cute pair of Baroque-ish lace shoes from Fluevog:

Pretty as….well, you know.

“Summer time, and the livin’ is easy…”

Yeah, I know, Gershwin is a little- uh- out there, but I think it encapsulates the general feeling this beautiful weather evokes. I have been taking a lot of bike rides with Megan, and my cousin Rachel. We always go about 4 miles up Foothills road, and we usually end up visiting (or is that harrassing?) the ever-patient Underhill family. Mr. Underhill gave me a kombucha mushroom, and that is really neat. Anyway, here is a picture of one of the recent fiascos.

Birdies

July 15, 2008 at 9:32 am (Hannah's Little Blog, Pictures)

Here is a picture of our neighbors. Ugly, aren’t they? Oh well, they grow out of it.

The bluebirds built their nest in our birdhouse, which is right next to the hammock. So….I can go and completely bliss out, swaying to and fro, watching pretty birds, enjoying my view of the mountains, chewing through some lit, and having fun in the general morning atmosphere. *yawn* I guess that’s why they call these the lazy days of summer.

Child of Yore

July 9, 2008 at 8:52 am (Doings, Hannah's Little Blog)

I am starting a new blog over at childofyore.wordpress.com. Since this is my personal blog, I like to write about my own life here, but hopefully the new one will be a place to post my old-fashioned stationary, B&W pictures, and thus and such. I also am planning on making it open to select people who want to author pieces on the old ways/days, to give a little more diversity than my own brains can offer. Let me know if you are interested.

Unusually Celebratory State of Mind

July 5, 2008 at 11:50 am (Uncategorized)

I’m not normally a very festive soul on the fourth day of the seventh month, but I had such a delightful time last night, and I was so inspired by American materialism, that I decided (at the risk of becoming a cyber casualty) to post another cartoon.

Sweet Relatives

July 3, 2008 at 5:48 pm (Hannah's Little Blog, Pictures)

I love this picture, although it’s not what it seems. The young man is my grandfather, and the girl is his cousin. Just one of the many treasures I have unearthed since I started scanning negatives, it is pretty cute. (if I do say so myself)

Color Pop

July 1, 2008 at 6:04 pm (Doings, Hannah's Little Blog, Pictures)

This is my long-awaited fruity skirt. I have learned that I hate sewing godets with flat-felled seams, and that I love doing pockets. Other than that, it was a nice lesson in patience and unusual color combos. It swirls quite satisfactorily, and works very well for bike riding.

Special thanks to my headless twin, who graciously modeled in my stead.
