Catching Up

Photobucket

Like Miss Elinor in the above photo, I have been redecorating. I'm so excited because after a few weeks of looking for just the right background image for my blog I have found it! I love the brown and cream theme and am very pleased with the simple elegant design of this free background I found at The Cutest Blog On The Block!

Sorry for the drought of posting. I've been viewing too many period dramas lately and not blogging about them or the other old-fashioned things I've encountered lately. And I'm afraid this procrastinating is only going to get worse as the summer comes because I am headed off to work at a Christian children's camp for most of the summer! I'm very excited this opportunity to minister to children and work along side fantastic brother and sisters in Christ! But working all summer means little computer time and hardly any time at all for blogging. Oh well! :(




Oh yes, I wanted to share some pictures of the lovely locket I found at a flea market recently. It caught my eye in a display case and I was very pleased that the lady was only asking $3 for it!




I just love wearing it!


Let me know what you think of the new background. Also, what kind of old-fashioned things have you been doing/watching/reading lately?

Blessings,
Miss Laurie :)

Love the new blog background, Laurie! And the locket is beautiful. :-)

What old-fashioned things have I been doing. . . hmm. . . knitting socks? Though the yarn I'm using is decidedly modern - bright, variegated acrylic yarn, LOL.

Old-fashioned movies. . . I recently watched the 1998 version of Far From the Madding Crowd for the first time. And The Woman in White - also made in 1998! I enjoyed both movies.

I watched "Singin' in the Rain" today and I love the 1920's period. The music is great. My favorite song is "Good Morin'". I like the old fashioned costumes.
I like the locket you bought. It's very pretty.
