    Show us what you've made!

    Just recently for my husband's Christmas party I made myself a party dress. I had 11 days to work on it and finished it in 9. Lol. It's from a 1962 dress pattern from Simplicity #4360. Fabric is a flocked taffeta in colbalt blue.

    Thinking about a tattoo, but is it what good girls did in the 1940's?

    I have 8 tattoo's so far. My hope and plan, when I have enough money is to have a whole sleeve or half sleeve of tattoo's on my arm. I am not into rockabilly music or anything like that, just like the look is all. I am self employed in a beauty salon, so it doesn't interfere with my job. My...

    Hi ladies, question- will the woman at the MAC counter help you with a red color that is best for you, or just sell you whatever?? I'm terrible with finding the right color, so I just don't wear it, and I feel like I'm missing out.:(

    Who can't wear lipstick?

    For some reason I think lipstick looks terrible on me, so I never wear it. It doesn't matter what color it is. I am so envious of the ladies that just seem to find the best color for them.:p

    Walking Into The Past...

    Last spring my husband's family put his grandmother (my mother in law's mother) into a nursing home. She was living in one of her 2 daughters houses, and hadn't stayed in her own home in a few years. She fell on a few occasions, and that was the last straw to the girls. She is 82 and of sound...

    I think about that all the time! Let's buy up some land and make our own "golden era" housing development. Forget the cookie cutter homes of today, we'll have wonderful nostalgic homes and cars on our streets. Some developments have strict rules, we'll have them too, everything in your yard...
