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.
What's so scary about a sweet little bulldog? I snapped this picture of Boris the other day while I was taking photos of clothing. He was mad because I wasn't paying attention to him, so he jumped up on my bed and grabbed the tv remote. He has chewed up 4 or 5 remotes in the past. He gets really mad if you try to take it away from him. You can see by the look in his eyes that he isn't going to give it up very easily. We had to lure him downstairs to get him to forget about the remote. He has a scarf around his neck to try to keep him from scratching a rash that he has on the back of his neck. He's very tender and sensitive really.
Below is a picture of my Dad's 1932 Ford Hot Rod, taken at the local hang out for retired guys who like to stand around and talk about cars and parts and stuff.
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.
