Life lately...

Left and Right: A day trip to Carlsbad Caverns National Park, website HERE.

Top: Lots of sewing repairs. Bottom: Re-doing the hem of a 1940s dress. What a great print!

Left: A shimmery 1960s era kimono. Right: A 1950s lace dress getting a soak.

What's currently coming out of my garden. Top: Shelling lima and pinto beans. Bottom: Tomatoes, tons of tomatoes!

Left: What I wore to a friend's wedding, my tablecloth dress, mentioned in THIS post, and a 1920s Art Deco tooled leather handbag. Right: The embroidered detail on a 1970s satin robe.

Top: Vintage piled everywhere in my workroom. Bottom: The rainbow trim detail of a 1950s circle skirt.

A trip to a local farm for freshly harvested produce. Left: The vegetable stand with a wide variety of produce all grown on the spot. Right: A New Mexico late summer/fall tradition - roasting green chilli. The farmers offered to roast the chilli while customers waited if a bushel was purchased. The smell of roasting chillis was wonderful and of course I bought a bushel!
