My Favorite Things
I’m starting a new tradition for Wednesdays. I’m calling it My Favorite Things. Play along if you want, post a link in the comments, I think it could be fun.
I’ll start with a website full of useful information: Vintage Sewing.
Complete period sewing manuals to read on your computer! I want to make a 20’s inspired evening dress for a Holiday party this year, and this is proving to be a great resource. And the hats, how I am enjoying the hats! I’ve always wanted to learn millinary techniques.
Now for something completly mundane, yet oh so useful: Dust Cloths. I know, it seems silly, but living in the country is dirty business, and our house is always dusty. I was standing in the cleaning aisle at the hardware store looking for a solution, and almost bought a cheaper cleaning cloth, but then I spotted the Genuine Mystic Maid Cleaning Cloth which claimed to be the best in the whole world. 381% Better than all the rest! It was a few dollars more, but can you really put a price on being the best in the whole world? I don’t think so. And you know, I think they might just be that good. I’m going to get another one for my car, because it deserves the best too.
My favorite lipstick, ever.
My shade? Sequin! Please don’t ever discontinue it! I have six empty MAC containers to trade in for a free one tonight on my way home. Life is good.
What are some of your favorite things?
