Well, my dears, the time has come for me to say my goodbye! We’re officially leaving Florida in a couple days, and the internet is getting cut off soon. So that means no more blogging for me until I get a bit more settled and our belongings are delivered. (Which, if anyone is inclined: prayers/good thoughts about that would be appreciated. Someone messed up our paperwork and we aren’t sure when we’ll be getting the household goods delivered. This has pretty much been the tenor for this move: one small crisis after the other… lol.) I’m going to miss you all so much! But, I do have some pretty fantastic guest bloggers filling in next month–I’m so excited to share their posts (and am very thankful they are helping!). I just know you’ll love what is coming over the course of November. Things will keep fairly regular, and I do have a couple pre-written posts of my own coming up (including some exciting book reviews), and just might pop in a couple times with little moving-related updates. Fingers crossed everything goes smoothly from here on out; it’s been a bumpy ride the past week, so I’ll be glad when it’s all over and I can unpack and stop living out of a suitcase (the movers came Wednesday, so I have been living out of a tiny suitcase since then… Which is slightly tricky when you have to pack for two totally different climates. lol.)!

  • Gertie (and readers) muse over the shape-shifting and societal ramifications of the bra throughout history (my fashion history-nerd self loved this!).
  • Great tips for washing silk scarves!
  • These roasted almonds with honey and thyme look so tasty…
  • Ever wonder about the “49er” jacket–a perennial favorite among vintage types? Solanah gives an explanation.

Apologies for the shortness of this week’s list, but I have to get back to cleaning! Wishing you all the loveliest of weekends and Novembers! “See” you soon!

Oh, good luck on the move Casey! I hope it will go much more smoothly from here on out! Also, thanks for the fabulous links! I got stuck on the bra post for far too long! lol! I am one of those small gals, so it’s a bit of a close subject to me as well. No one makes 34AA! I’ve found some well fitting bras at Gilly Hicks, but I really don’t think they make any granny style bras! ;) I’d really love to find some of those “granny” styles in my size, though I highly doubt I’ll be in luck. Anyways, fun article on the subject. I’m also drooling over those beautiful girdles on WhatKatieDid website. Now if only their 1940s style bra came in my size! :)

Lovely photos, and the links are great! Doesn’t need to be many, when they are so good =)

Sorry to hear you’ve had such a bumpy ride, I’m crossing my fingers your stuff will get there soon. But how exciting, finally moving! =) For me the owrst part is always packing and leaving the old, comfortable and safe, but when I’m out and away I love arriving at a new place and start making it a home.
If you want to browse some coat pictures; I know I’ve been all talk and no buisness for ages, but now the coat I’ve been sewing is finally ready! Two years from the idea to wearing it, but so worth it =)

Hi Casey! Best of luck on your move! I’m sending my thoughts for smooth sailing from here on out! I also totally got sucked in to Gertie’s bra post! So fascinating – I loved reading everyone’s comments, and since I am sorely in need of new bras I picked up some great tips too!
Try to enjoy your blog break as best you can, we’ll all be happily awaiting your return!

I spent a lot of time yesterday reading Gertie’s post on bras and all the comments. I think your dad thought maybe I got lost somewhere in the house, as I sort of hid upstairs and kept reading. I really found the point she made about bust shape/bra styles being influenced by the latest version of pornography. Very interesting. It was reassuring the read the comments and see other women with similar problems to mine. I hope she does more on this topic.
