Last week I bought a nice load of vintage clothing, about 250+ pieces. There are about 50 dresses, including some XL sizes, 20 coats and jackets, 40 hats, lingerie, Victorian whites and small items too. The load should be enough to keep me and you happy for awhile! Of course, I had to snag a few pieces from the lot for myself. I grabbed 3 cute lightweight jackets. This pretty 1940s lavender one to the left and the 1960s brocade and light brown wool ones below. I also snatched a straw purse for the Summer.
Cleaning is going on presently and you'll start seeing some of the new item in the next update, starting with the XL items which include some 1950-60s dresses.
I didn't get any painting done this week, because it suddenly got very cold, and the heater isn't done being installed yet. So maybe I'll get to paint in another week or so. I have that vintage stuff to keep me busy, so the painting can wait (even though the house does look a mess and I'm anxious to get everything back in it's proper place)
I'm at the part time job right now, and it's slow here. I wish I were at home chapping my hands in Biz & bleach!
Last night a new episode of Hereos aired. I was looking forward to seeing it. I don't watch many tv shows regularly, but somehow I got hooked into watching this. I think because it was on right before Doctor Who and because the guy who use to play Jess on Gilmore Girls is now on Hereos. He caught my eye one night while flipping channels. He looks even better now than he did on GG (how old am I?) Anyway, after watching a few episodes, I think I know what the show is about and I'm hooked. Now Christopher Eccleston is joining the cast, so I have another reason to watch.
Only 3 more hours of work.
Bye for now, Carol
