TBT: Hero

I didn’t know tape measures were such a bother! The only thing missing from these needles are the capes that will make them super. 🙂


TBT: Les laines du chat qui pelote

I’m having a moment with cats, with black cats in particular. If you follow me on Instagram you know I visited the cutest litter of kittens yesterday, which includes two black kitties. I have my eye on Selkie, the boy, though my husband has said “No more pets!” and I know it would be slightly financially irresponsible to take on another when we’ve got 2 ailing elderly dogs. But still – a girl can dream.

TBT: Thanksgiving, 1967

You may be expecting a greeting card or a photograph, but I stumbled across this vintage ad and couldn’t resist. It’s sort of related to this blog – knitting, turkeys, a throw back to the year my parents were married.

I wish I’d found this earlier; I could be wearing this very comfortable looking outfit today. Maybe next year.
