Christmas Goodies

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas! I know I did. We had just a quite day at home. I read my new books over, and over again. :) And gazed at my new sewing patterns trying to find supplies to make them - and I did. The blessings of having a huge stash. :) I just need to buy boning and zippers.

1. Blueprints of Fashion 1940s & 1950s
2. Vintage Hairstyling
3. Costume Close-Up
4. Costume in Detail
5. Summer Shade Jumper (Marie-Madeline Studio)
6. Ladies' 1780s Portrait Dress Pattern (Sense & Sensibility Patterns)
7. Mint Chocolate Bar
8. 3 Pairs of Earrings (one pair I will be returning)
9. Bracelet (made by my sister, Hanne-col)
10. Gluten-Free Candy Canes 
11. Snowman Brooch

One of my new tea cups from Starbucks. I LOVE them!

             1. Necklace made by my sister, Hanne-col.         2. Robe

And on Christmas Eve the Astaire & Rogers DVDs I won arrived in the mail! It was like receiving another Christmas present. I've already watched Shall We Dance and Follow the Fleet. 

So how was your Christmas? Right now, I'm making two 1780s dresses. One will be made out a white on white cotton fabric for a day dress. While the other one, will be made out the leftover fabric from my formal for a ball gown. :)  Also I can't wait to buy supplies to fix my hair in vintage styles - mostly 50s & 60s. :) 



  1. AHH! you got the vintage hairstyling book!!!

  2. You received some lovely gifts...and very well thought out to, might I add :) :) I think the book of vintage hairstyles is really interesting. I may have to get a copy for myself. It would be fun to try styling my hair in a vintage style. it would be so fun!!! Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

  3. What lovely goodies! I love the rustic tea cup...so cute!

  4. AHHHH! Could you do some hair tutorials????? I need to check the vintage books out!

  5. It looks like you got some amazing gifts! :)

    What a crazy coincidence that we were at Disney World during the same month! We could have passed each other and not even known it. :) We actually spent two days in lovely Epcot on that trip (on our first trip in November 2006, we rushed through in one day). I think that working at Disney World would be one of the coolest jobs ever. :) And I'm glad someone else shares my strange desire to fly.
