Thank you everyone so, so much for all the warm congratulations to SH and I on Monday’s post! I cannot begin to say how these brightened my day–I think I looked like a Cheshire Cat for the last couple days. I can’t wait to share more of this journey with you–and beyond pregnancy too. I think having a small one around here is going to inspire me in so many ways I haven’t even thought of before. (Not to mention all the cute things I can make it! And planning birthday parties… I’m really, really excited about those! hehe.) I’d also like to say congratulations to all the mamas-to-be who posted as well!
I could have sworn I posted these previously; and perhaps I did back in the hazy, early days of the blog (or even a couple years ago). So if a couple of these images are repeats, please forgive me–but I think they’re worth posting again!
Every so often I become completely smitten with the 1920s–particularly the early 20s (which has more of a romantic, soft air than the latter half of the decade). It’s the details I think that get me. So many inventive pocket shapes, trims, fantastic fabric colors, soft ruffles… I start to fill the pages of my inspiration notebook with little sketches of these details that I glean from all over. I hope you’ll enjoy these inspirations. I’m not entirely sure of the year they date from (I purchased them as loose pages), but I’m guessing somewhere between 1919 and 1924. Be inspired!
