Sometimes the multi-facets of my life cross and collide and let me bring onto my blog some of my other passions. As some people may or may not know, I am also a piano teacher. Music is very important to me. My family can probably read my emotions to some extent by how or what I am playing on the piano at any given time.
If I am not sewing, I am reading. (Okay or maybe wasting time on my computer or a host of other things.) The point is I do like to read especially old books.
I love to read. The End. But I think I have made that point before. Most of my reading material lately has been focused around the decades of the 30's and 40's.
I thought I just might show off another one or two of my Christmas presents. Quite a bit of my Christmas list was sewing related, although not entirely since I got my new cowboy hat!
One of my dearest friends knows me well enough to have completely nailed my Christmas presents this year. This cute little vintage picture and shotgun shell turkey decorated the outside of my gift.
I did the dangerous thing and went to a book store while on vacation. I haven't decided whether I came out the better or worse for it. I came back with less money, but more books, and now have the extremely challenging situation of trying to figure out how to fit them on my book case.
For those that like to participate in historical reenactments will know that background is very important. I love vintage fashions, but learning about those is not enough. I need to immerse myself in the period to really understand the people and the times so I can better present myself as legitimately coming out of the period.
This book has been on my wishlist for a long time now. When it came down in price recently, I decided that it was time to own this book. I was glad to see that Jessica of Chronically Vintage reviewed the book a few years back and really liked it.
I will admit that I am a just a bit of a bookworm. Okay, okay, a really big bookworm. I have books stacked unconventionally on my bookshelf (which is over 5 feet tall). Not surprisingly my love of antiques/vintage goes into books as well. Things like old books are useful from a living historian perspective.
Sarah loves to sew, learn more about sewing, and create items with a vintage flair. Her arch enemy is clipping curves, and she has a tolerable relationship with the seam ripper.
