I am a 24 yr old young woman of Non-Denominational faith. I am a homeschool graduate,who is still living at home with her Mother & Father & two younger brothers. I am involved with my church in many areas of ministry, from singing to American Sign Language, to drama & dance, to nursery work. I am an avid reader, lover of anything involving history, passionate sewer & wearer of historical clothing,continuous watcher of historical costume movies & black & whites, Future Homemaker & hopefully, Lord willing, Mother, & lover of my Lord & Savior, Jesus.
It has been a month since I last posted anything, but I have been so busy that I haven't even had much time for being on the computer, much less for writing a blog post. I will try in the future to be more constant with my posts, but during the holiday season, I am always so busy, what with Thanksgiving (by the by Happy Quite Belated Thanksgiving!), numerous Christmas parties, making presents for family & friends (which I hope to post photos of), sewing costumes for the upcoming Christmas play at church (which I am helping direct), & teaching American Sign Language to my church group for the Christmas program, I have been a little short on time for anything else.
I recently watched "The Thin Man" starring two of my many favorite 30s-40s actors/actresses, William Powell & Myrna Loy. It is the first in a series of films that are simply fabulous, from the dry satirical humor to the gorgeous clothes, to the plots that keep you guessing, they are a must see. As I was watching the particular film which was made & set in 1934, I had the desire to rummage through my stash of 1930s fashions. Below are just a few of the wonderful creations as well as several photos of William & Myrna:
The above three photos are of William Powell, Myrna Loy, & the terrier that played Asta in the Thin Man series. Below are some of the lovely clothes from the period.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week & that the above photos will inspire you to break out a new project or an abandoned one & enjoy yourself while sewing.
