>Internet withdrawls, I had them. Glad to be back online!
Here’s a cheery little page of sweaters (or jumpers, depending on where you are from) that probably dates to around 1933. Now, who is going to start reproing 1930s sweaters ready made? Sign me up
Husband and I saw The Kings Speech last night. Have you seen it yet? It was the best modern movie release I had seen in a long time!
If you saw my last post on Gift Certificates available in my shop now, you might recognize the top of this page! Isn’t this delightful? All the lovely colors and patterns- I’m having a hard time choosing a favorite, though I particularly love the blue and white checkered scarf and the fuzzy white scarf with bands of color.
Can you believe Christmas is just over a week away? What happened to December? Pretty soon I’ve got to find spare time to get some Christmas baking done, and if I’m lucky I might *just* be able to squeeze in some last minute sewing!
Hope your holiday plans are going well, and that you all had a lovely Thursday!
Do you ever look in old catalogs, old photos, old movies, and see something that reminds you of yourself? That’s the way I always feel when I see the girls in catalogs from the WWI era. It’s like I’m staring at who I would have been if I had lived back then. The girl in the mustard sweater above reminds me so much of myself when I was a young teenager.

I’m quite taken with all of these sweaters. I wish I could just magically send in an order form and have them appear in perfect state. I was actually watching one very similar to some of these on Ebay last week and it went for over $300. But isn’t it gorgeous
Hope everyone’s having a great week!
