- Downton Abbey returned to British television screens on September 22nd, but folks in America will have to wait until January 2014. Until then, there are teaser trailers to get us through. Courtesy of Vintage Life Magazine and Hypable.
On the subject of British goodies, my friend Stacy gave me the idea to search the web for photos of Princess Margaret’s trip to South Africa c. 1963 because “the clothes are simply to die for.” My search led me to a Flickr page full of vintage photos from the 40’s thru the 60’s of Princess Margaret and Queen Elizabeth. The photos are well-captioned and stunning. The page owner also has a website dedicated to the same. It’s an amazing collection.
- September 22-28, 2013 is Banned Books Week. If you’ve never looked at the list, you should. “Bridge to Terabithia” by Katherine Paterson was a favorite of mine when I was young. What did you read this week? Courtesy of Random House, Inc. and Angelo Lagdameo.
- Betty White’s career is fascinating to me. Did you know she used to be a model…a nude model? As Kinfauns Vintage Clothing put it, Betty just keeps getting “more adorably interesting.” Courtesy of Kinfauns Vintage Clothing and Peachburrito Vintage.
- A recent trip to Urban Outfitters put me onto Crow Canyon Home, an enamelware company with a vintage line. I’m not a big fan of splatterware, but I do love vintage white enamelware with a black edge. Enamelware is experiencing a surge of popularity. Page 36 of the current issue (October 2013) of Country Living magazine offers some additional enamelware options.
