Yesterday I did a set for a 30's style hair style with finger waves in front and pin curls in the back. Here are the results. I think wave clips would have been better but I had seen a tutorial on using the duck bill clips so I thought I would give them a go. I did get some waves but I think it could have been a bit more wavy since my hair is very straight I may need to purchase the clips one of these days.
So I have had a horrible cold this week. Last night I woke up in the middle of the night and was coughing non stop. So I got up and looked at different home remedies for my cough and found most suggestions were for a Hot Toddy. It certainly seemed like the most pleasant suggestion. Though I will have to say that since it was 3 am and I did not feel inclined to visit an all night grocery store I had to make due with lemon juice instead of fresh lemon and Kentucky bourbon for my whiskey. I had plenty of honey on hand seems I had bought 2 or 3 bottles and they kept getting tucked away in a cupboard so when cleaning up and organizing a few weeks ago I found I had 3 bottles. I used a decaf English Breakfast tea since I was wanting to go back to bed afterwards although in hind sight I think I had some chamomile that would have probably been nicer if I had looked. Well needless to say it worked like a charm and I was able to continue my beauty rest. Well cheers and good health to all.
Well I am not sure that anyone will be interested in reading this but I am starting this to encourage myself to continue to experience what I love and much of that is vintage related. I feel as if I have strayed from my path for the last 5 years raising children, being married, working a full time job that some seems to take more and more of my time and energy, taking care of a house has diverted my attention for a while but now I feel a bit more focused and wish to pursue my passion for all things vintage from the mid century and golden era. I have started some sewing projects, I have tried crochet but my mentor, Aunt Marybeth just told me it may not be my thing but I will continue to pursue time willing. I also love collecting vintage everything from sewing machines to furniture, my house used to be lovely but now with two young children I find it a bit of a challenge to have it as I would like it. Well that is enough for now next post I hope will include some of my endeavors in the realm of sewing I am currently working on two muslins one a 30's blouse and one a pair of 40's pants. So hopefully my next post will include some end results. Happy Holidays to all, until next post take care.
