Hey, it's almost time for Halloween already! It got very cold and Fall-like this week too, and the trees are all turning pretty colors. We don't get any trick-or-treaters out here in the woods. I don't blame them. Why trek up long driveways to one house when you can hit a whole bunch of houses for candy in a developement. In our old neighborhood, the kids didn't come to the door there either, because they were afraid of our dogs.
The 10/30 update will have some purses, lightweight jackets and slips. Today I'm soaking a 1950s lace dress that is discolored from age and I'm getting ready to start photographing the items for the following update. In between vintage work, I'm working of a collection of old photos for the Strathmere website. It's 120 photos that I scanned last month and finally got edited today. Now I have to organize how I'm going to put them up on the site and hope that I have enough history notes written for each of the photos.
