I can't say I've been up to much. Though I have been reading. Observe my recent achievements:

I haven't been writing...or posting....about anything. Whoops. I think I've been feeling a little introspective and uninspired lately. Just today I decided to leap around and peruse some of my favorite vintage blogs and it reminded me how much fun I have being a classsy pin up girl. I confess I've gotten lazy due to summer. I seem to wear a lot of stretchy cotton and t-shirt dresses, and while I play with hair and make up sometimes, my vintage wardrobe has been hanging around, bored. I tried to start reading Middlemarch by George Eliot but sometimes I have to confess to myself: I may be patient for a girl of the 21st century, but I may not be patient enough for seven hundred pages of George Eliot. I KNOW I'll like the Masterpiece Theatre miniseries, though. You understand my dilemma.

Oh yes: I learned to do a fishtail braid (exhibit E):

Oh Diane Kruger is so cute.

Also, tomorrow I plan to bake not one, not two, but THREE gorgeous-delicious-yum pies for the cast and crew of Trek in the Park....including a new recipe for me. So you see? It's not like I haven't been DOING things....I just haven't been doing as many things as normal people do.....but that'll change. La la la....the end of the random post about random things.

Jane Austen's books are so gorgeous :D sometimes is even better to stay reading and not thinking.
Like the braid too :)

Okay, I know I've bothered you about a hair tut before but I've always wanted to know how to do a fishtail braid!

And I think mysteries are perfect for summer reading! Well, and fall reading. And...

Thanks, Miss Ontherocks. And yes you can never go wrong with Jane Austen. :)
Emma, you never bother me-it just inspires me to be slightly less lazy. haha :)
