I haven’t written a blog in far too long, and for that I apologize. I was in Italy for 2 weeks on vacation (a sort of honeymoon I guess, only my parents were there as well so not really), and before that I was on a business trip for a week in Fort McMurray, it was the oil and gas trade show and there were wayyyyy too many people there that week so our internet connection was terrible. Before that I was getting ready for the biz trip and Europe, and this past week I’ve been recovering. We tore apart our hideous kitchen before we left so that my brother in law could come in and put up the cabinets while we were gone. It’s on it’s way to looking good, but we still have no countertops or sink, and linoleum was ripped up so the floor is bare and kind of gluey. The only appliances we have now are a microwave and a blender, which are doing the trick so far but I can see us getting tired of this situation pretty quickly. I give it to the end of the month
And so, while vintage has been heavily on my mind, it has not been in the tips of my fingers for a little while, so no blogs have appeared. I’m unsure of where to begin now, there’s so much to discuss. Italian style would be great to blog about; I always come back from Europe with a new spin on my own style. This trip made me think of flats in a whole new way, and also enticed me to be a little bit more experimental with shapes in my wardrobe. The women there were typically very slim and frowned a lot, and dressed very femininely, even while riding their bikes and vespas, which I loved.
I could blog about the recent amazing coats I’ve found while on the prowl in my local vintage and second-hand haunts. I’m not sure if I’m on a lucky streak or just living in a place where people don’t know what they’re giving away, but I’ve found some amazing cold-weather fashions in the past 2 months that make me want it to start snowing a lot sooner that I normally would.
I could also write about the home fashions I’m loving right now; we’re coming into the cold part of the year where we typically spend more time cozied up at home; what beter time to add special touches to your rooms that’ll make you smile as you settle down in your favourite chair with a good book?
I will blog about all these things, to be sure. For now though, let me simply wish you and yours a very happy thanksgiving. I am thankful for you, dear reader, and for everyone who designs, makes, and appreciates beautiful things. Whithout you, the world would be a cold and colourless place. Happy feasting!
