The Modish Guide is featuring my new line of Vintage Dictionary Earrings.The Creature Comforts Guide will be featuring these combs and these necklaces.To celebrate such wonderful holiday press I would love to offer everyone a discount. Unfortunately my website shopping cart can't do discount codes, so instead .... every order $24 or higher is getting a free holiday gift! Hammered copper and turquoise earrings! (Sorry about the fuzzy picture. I need to retake this with my undamaged camera).
If you've read the premier issue of Victoria Magazine's relaunch, you may remember the glamorous photo shoot of Tasha Tudor's historical gowns. You can view all the gowns being auctioned at this site. You can also purchase a full color auction catalogue. I was a huge fan of the old Victoria and this new version, while nice, just doesn't have the same magical grace or sense of style ... at least for me. This auction gown, however, is lovely! Look at that great seafoam color! You can almost see the cameo at the neckline and the upswept hair pinned with a tortoiseshell comb.
And the sad thing. My husband and I have "date nights" (where we dress up and dine out without the kids) and I was so hoping to see Elizabeth: The Golden Age on our last date, but the movie showtimes didn't match up with the childcare opportunity available to us. So, alas .... looks like I will be watching it on DVD in the spring of 2008 in our family room. Not quite as romantic as I'd envisioned. :)
Oh! And I DID go to that graveyard. Not at midnight though :) My oldest son and I went for a walk to check out this bit of our town's history. Very still and creepy. And the creepiest part? One of the graves had ... dare I say it? ... had a stake on top of it wrapped in a silver wire! Now, I don't know if that wire was real silver or not, but one look at that and we were out of there. Waaay too spooky!
