It was a beautiful weekend. Went to a few sales and found the best things for fall. After an absolute vintage dry spell this summer I have been having such luck finding things. Vintage cardigans, little dresses, books and ephemera, a floral prarie dress, pins and cameos, english rose earrings with golden filagree and a 50’s prom dress in peach tulle. I found this book and it is HEAVY with lots of full page images. I even got an old suitcase with beautiful gray satin lining and ribbons to tie down trousers. Its the type of luggage that was meant to lug onto a steam engine boxcar. We got a new (old) station wagon and it fits our trips and findings perfectly. We walked around Princeton, NJ and the combination of fallen leaves and cobblestone was too much texture to bear. I have had my nose in Pride and Prejudice for the first time ever and I was really missing out! Got a big, hefty art journal and I have been filling it with little sketches. I think I’m going to offer prints for some of them.
The thing I miss the most about summer is seeing the sunlight fill my room. We are approaching daylight savings time! Tell me, what do you miss the most about summer?
