Happy Friday!

Happy Friday, my friends!!!  Here are my favorite things from this week:

The Hairpin wasn't exaggerating when they said I would read the medical report of Lincoln's assassination with my hand over my mouth going "oh my god, oh my god."  Full pdf text of the Surgeon's report here.

A great article from Yes and Yes on how to fight fair.  

This 1930s Jumper is STUNNING.

Tasia is releasing a trouser pattern!  Aren't her versions just fantastic?I have some black pinstripe fabric that would be perfect!

If you like going to flea markets and antique fairs, I recommend checking out this fantastic post by Liz.  It has great tips for how to interact with vendors and get good deals.


It's really fantastic to have a cook in the house when you want to have a picnic/movie date :)

Speaking of movie dates, here are ten good themes for movie nights!

I've been in a bit of a crafting slump lately, but after reading this, I got some new ideas and perspectives for my hobby.  Once I return from vacation, I'm throwing myself into a huge crafting extravaganza event (soooo exciting!!).  It starts July 2 :)

Well, Friends - I am off!  I have too many clothes packed and more than enough sunscreen to flood a city.  There will be a bit of radio silence for the next couple days, and then a bit more after that as I recover :)

Have an amazing weekend all, and I hope you get to enjoy the sunshine where you are!

  3. My boss and I(!) wasted an hour this morning sitting in front of my computer in the archive wide-eyedly reading that Lincoln thing before we realized and got back to accomplishing things. Have a great time out in the world!
