I individually responded to each comment on the post about my grandmother, but wanted to say a great big THANK YOU! to everyone that shared their stories and left condolences. It meant more than you know.
Having the last week off has been great for some reflection and rejuvenation of spirit. I thought a lot about shutting down the blog, because it was no longer fun and there are 20 million other places where I can store my images. If that was my only objective, but the whole point was to connect with people who shared my same aesthetic and cared that I found sequin bits and bobs at the thrift.
So I'm starting anew, and will be tweaking the blog over the next several weeks. One big change was that I had to take the blog list down to make room for some other items, but I'll be remantling it as soon as I figure out how to link it to a separate page.
I also upgraded my blog account, so I can starting posting larger images. Yes! Unfortunately, there will also be less scans that I created of my own until I can figure out how I want to handle those images.
I'm trying to catch up on things, and the lovely reader Caroline pointed out that she thought I would have made a Kate Moss for Topshop post for her spring collection. She was right because there were several pieces that look promising with this collection. It looks like I missed out on most, but I'll post what caught my eye.
Caroline, please leave a review if you can of the sequin jacket!
I also finally caught up on all the Glee episodes. The Bad Reputation episode nearly did me in when Sue went off on Molly Shannon's character, Brenda Castle. She says the most inappropriate things but she makes me laugh and laugh.
If you love Glee's humor, and haven't seen the show "Popular", you must rent it. The scenes with Mary Cherry and Cherry Cherry are hilarious.
(the video stutters in the beginning because it is just a tiny clip of the scene)
Oh, and Mr. M and I are mapping out a week long road trip for the end of June. So far Nashville, New Orleans, Atlanta and Savannah have made the list. Please share your summer plans, it may inspire us to visit another city.
