I Found a Castle in the Woods

Not really a castle, but an old military fort dating back to the Civil War. It was such a beautiful day! The temperature reached all of 50 degrees, making it feel like spring. The dress I am wearing is a Christmas present from Jonny. I love it! He knows me so well. We had such a wonderful Christmas. I hope all of you are having a lovely Holiday as well. :o)

A Snowy Day In

In my last post I said I was going to make another skirt, well this is it. I made it out of some vintage fabric I had lying around. I love it!

Today we are having quite the blizzard. That picture with all the snow was taken in my backyard. It's a perfect day for staying inside and drinking hot tea. I hope everyone is having a great weekend! :o)

Skirt, made by me!

Lately I've been sewing like crazy. I absolutely love sitting at my sewing machine and stitching away! This skirt is one of the first I have ever made. I made it without using a pattern and am quite happy with it. Tomorrow I'm planning on making another. Until next time....

Little Doll

Thursday we had a huge ice storm. It was extremely beautiful, though quite treacherous! Our electricity was out for two days. Having no computer was very interesting...haha. Though, having no electricity was fun for a little while. I enjoyed walking around the house carrying a candle, pretending I was Jo from Little! Why grow up!?

Jacket: Vintage from Etsy
Shoes: Fly London
Doll: Shirley Temple Danbury Mint

B&W with a touch of Red

One of my New Years resolutions is to buy nothing but black, white or red clothing. Kind of a silly one I know. My reasoning for this is, black and white are essentials for everyones closet and red is my favorite color. Also, I'm hoping this will help me do less shopping. We'll see...

Speaking of black and white...I LOVE the dress below from Anthropologie! Sadly it's way out of my price range. Who knows, maybe it will go on super sale someday?! :o)

Holiday Inn

I've adored Bing Crosby for as long as I can remember! So today when I had an awful headache I could think of nothing better then getting cozy and watching Holiday Inn starring Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire.  I haven't enjoyed a movie so much in what seems like a long time.  The combination of Bing's voice and Fred's dancing is magical.  Though I must admit I favored Bing in this film!  Holiday Inn features my favorite holiday song "White Christmas" plus many other wonderful musical numbers.  I recommend this movie highly, if you haven't seen it already.  

PS: Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments on my last post!  It was so much fun to do! :o)

In My Room!

Here is the first picture ever of me in my! Today is the first day of my weekend so I'm doing some of the things I love most. Reading my Bette Davis biography, drinking tea, playing with my cat, and watching old films. Perfect!

Also, as some of you may have noticed I have been wearing a hat in almost all my pictures. The biggest reason behind this is that I'm TRYING to grow my hair out. I have been longing for a haircut similar to Louise Brooks. I'm telling you all this now so I'm not tempted to cut it all off in the next day or two! Until next time....   :o)

PS: Isn't that first picture of Louise fabulous!?
