Wishing my lovely followers a blessed Christmas season and New Year! I love you all, you are so supportive and encouraging for me! Without you amazing ladies I would never have been able to keep this blog going.
May the Christ child shower your family with blessings this coming year!
And now for some vintage Christmas ephemera...
I love this one.
Merry Christmas! I'm looking forward to yet another year of blogging with you all.
I am not going to start another post apologizing for the amount of time that has elapsed since my last post, but I will say this. I have been very busy and productive this Advent preparing for Christmas. Taking a break from the computer was really good for me, though hard at times. (No Pinterest *sob*)
BUT. As I said, I was very productive. One big project I finally completed was my very first 1873 polonaise gown. About 3 days straight at the sewing machine, but well worth it.
I wore it for a Christmas evening event at the farm. It was so fun to swish around in... who doesn't like dressing up in period costume?
I also cut my hair. Pretty much most of it. It feels really short even though it isn't exactly THAT short..
I finally grew it out long enough to wrap around my head!
My hair kinda looks a little red in this picture...
It was very long and I was tired of it.
So, I got almost a foot taken off, and then some layers.
I just have to say I'm so glad to be done with all that brushing, at least for a while.
Also this week I finally bought a laptop. Not sure if that's a good thing because it means now I will probably be on the computer A LOT. But it is really nice to have all my stuff on my own computer instead of sharing with mom and dad.
That means that I can scratch off TWO things from my bucket list this month! Wow.
And finally, today is Christmas Eve of course, so I did quite a bit of baking. I also handmade most of the presents for my family, so I will have pictures of those soon.
Well I better get back to my preparations. I've got to sing for midnight and morning Mass, and I still have so much to do!!
