And so it begins

Welcome to my blog. A few weeks ago, I was noodling around on the internet and found a few sites about women who lived their lives as if it were the 1940's or the 1950's. This intrigued me. I started looking around some more and found a number of great sites and blogs about other women who are doing similar things. Some immerse themselves completely in their favorite era and others adopt attitudes, traditions, styles.

Well, count me among them. I'm not sure where this journey will lead, but I hope a few things will happen along the way. I want to simplify my life. I want to be more self sufficient. I want to learn to do more for myself. I want to have a home I'm proud to have friends and family over to.

Why should any of this be framed by the 1950's? Why not? And there's almost no better era in recent history where there is so much in the way of magazines and manuals to help me do all of the things I've outlined above. And nostalgia for what has always been portrayed as a simpler time. And I've always loved the fashion. So feminine.

I hope you'll join me from time to time. I can't wait to see how this unfolds.
