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!


  1. Oooo! Thanks for the link on the cold skewers! I'm definitely going to add them to my menu of park/picnic friendly foods!

  2. Thanks for the shout-out Meg! I loved that 30's Jumper too. I always see her stuff pop up on Sew Retro and I love everything this wonder-woman does.

  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!

  4. Oh gosh.. that 1930s jumpsuit is amazing! Thanks for sharing lovely lady!

  5. Thanks for the link! And I think we're all swooning over that 30s jumper wow! ;)
