OK, so the green grassy hills of Vermont are a far cry from the dry, dusty plains of the '30s... but I've been having a love affair with Great Depression and Dust Bowl looks lately! I think I want to look like a 1930s country farm girl this summer, and of course I live in the perfect location for that look. Vermont's beautiful landscape never ceases to fill me with awe; these fields, which will soon sprout corn, are just a five minute stroll from my front door, nestled behind a beautiful old graveyard and down an empty dirt lane. Very picturesque in the golden evening light!
I'd like to thank you all for the sweet and encouraging comments on my last post, they really cheered me up. I was in such shock right after I got the cut; I've been a total Jo March since I was a little girl: all through elementary and middle school I was a completely anti-fashion, bookish tomboy, but I had glossy wasit-length hair that was my pride and joy, even if I kept in neat braids all the time. I'm staring to warm up to my new look, though... it's amazing how easy short hair is. It takes curl almost too well, and holds up all day long. And I've always loved the "cloud of curls" look many flappers sported, so now I can emulate them, too!
I'm also so excited to have over 200 followers now... welcome new readers, and thank you to each and every one of my sweet followers, I'm so flattered you like my blog enough to read it! I will have a little give-away with some cute vintage goodies to celebrate sometime soon-ish! ♥
PS: Our wireless internet connection has been very sporadic lately... one minute it's fine, the next it just stops working! It's very frustrating. So I may not be as active at reading and commenting as I'd like for a bit. ☹
