Merry Christmas!

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.

What I have been up to...

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!

Before:

 
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.


After:


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!!

Farewell my little peeps!  Talk to you soon....

Yours truly,
