    How tall are you, Ladies?

    That's an excellent observation, gluegungeisha! You're probably right about the confidence factor, protection, and desirability. It would be interesting if we were talking about weight instead of height--would we be mentioning the relative girth of the men we are with? Would we even be...

    How tall are you, Ladies?

    Well, I'm 5' 81/2", the shortest woman in my family. All of my 4 sisters are between 5' 10" and 5' 11", my only brother is 6' 4", Dad was 6' 4" and his brother was 6' 9". My hubby is 6' 1", our daughter is 5' 10" and our son is 6' 3". So, in my family I am a shrimp!

    Signature Shades

    I almost always buy my foundation in three shades--one that is as close as possible to my skin, one that is darker with a bit more yellow, and one that is very light. I've never found one that is perfect, so I pump out a bit more of the closest one and add a dab of the darker one to it. As the...

    any old-school housewives??

    I have been a homemaker and SAHM all of my married life (34 years!) I loved every single moment of it and would do it all again in a heartbeat. The joy of being there to watch and instruct and enjoy our children brought me deep satisfaction and a sense of fulfillment. I have never once felt...

    Show us your vintage patterns!

    Looking for a Pattern... (If this isn't posted correctly, please feel free to move it!) I am looking for a pattern for a ladies' long robe that has a fitted waist. I've noticed in a lot of old movies that the robes or dressing gowns that women wore tended to have waistbands. (I hate the...

    Nothing but Seamed Stockings

    Noir Dame, I wear an 8/12 to 9 shoe and I wear 10 1/2 L or tall stockings. (I am 5' 8 1/2"). If I wear anything shorter than a 10 1/2, I pop right through the toes!

    Cold Cream- Brands and advice!

    Gluegungeisha, what make and color of lipstick are you wearing in your avatar? It looks fabulous on you! I posted this to you before but didn't find a response--maybe it's too far back! Anyway, does it tend to stain the lips and do you find that the oils remove it well? Thanks!

    Goldleaf. How are you feeling? Have you been hit with morning sickness at all? Hope not, but if so, it usually only lasts for the first three months. So thrilled for you and your husband!! Will this be the first grandchild for your folks or his?

    How do you store your purses?

    About a month ago I purchased a few yards of clear plastic at Joanne's Fabric Store. I roughly measured each of my purses and cut the plastic into envelope shapes for each bag. I simply folded the plastic so the fold was on the bottom, and the excesss for the flap was at the top, and stitched...

    Questions About Day Dresses

    Another idea if the length happens to be too long for your petite size, is to make a belt or sash with the extra length you cut off. That way it matches the dress and doesn't draw extra attention to your waist.

    Hat and Glove Era Advise & Etiquette

    You just stick the pin into the crown of your hat on one side, "catch" a bunch of hair underneath, and push it out on the other side! I find the onger the pin, the better it holds because it's catching more hair. Some of my hats have small combs sewn into them on the inside rim, which is truly...

    Lovely pictures!! Speaking of movie stars and scarves, I watched an old movie we have called "Come Live With Me and Be My Love" last night, with Jimmy Stewart and Hedy Lamar. In it, Stewart find a "garment" of hers that looks a lot like a pair of footless hosiery with a stretched waist. He's...

    Vintage clothing: when is enough, enough?

    Somehow I never saw this thread earlier...but upon reading it, I immediately thought, "When is enough CLOTHING IN GENERAL enough, vintage or otherwise?" I guess I am of the school that says that I don't want things in general to own ME! Moderation is the ticket for me!
