A few tidbits from the first half of August, other than that large theater buy out.
Left: A 1950s blue ball gown hanging on the clothes line after a soaking. Right: What I wore, a 1950s embroidered peasant dress. I'm trying to get all of my peasant dresses worn before the summer is out.
Top: A close up detail of a few 1970s ethnic printed garments. Bottom: A better view of one of them, a 1970s kimono sleeved dress. Aren't the patterns just awesome?
Top: A large tooled leather project. Bottom: A 1980s black Bali cut work blouse.
This one is a three-for. Top: It's butterfly season in the garden and I literally have hundreds of Gulf Fritillary butterflies. Middle: What they look like in caterpillar form. Bottom: The Gulf Fritillary butterfly feeds exclusively off of passion flower vines, which I happen to have, blossom pictured, all along my back fence. So every year, I get swarmed by hundreds of beautiful orange and black butterflies in the garden and it's pretty magical.
Top: Canning garden produce, this batch is sweet and spicy green chili relish. Bottom: Belts, belts, and belts!
