Summer vacation

July 22nd, 2010 § 0 comments § permalink

It’s summer.  I’m lazy.  Or rather, I’m distracted.  Here are some things that keep me occupied.

  • My garden (sorry no pics – we had a massive near tornado here last night and it looks like “walk of shame” hair.
  • Reading about my talented friend, Greta Bank, in Downeast Magazine.
  • Training for the Mount Desert Island Marathon (oh my poor feet).  Which entails
  • Listening to loads of podcasts, including my new favorites, RISK! and Stuff you Missed in History Class.
  • And listening to music, like this, for example

  • Getting super worked up about Madmen, and Madmen-ing myself in the meantime (mmm…bloody mary).


  • Motorcycling
  • Reading, reading, reading, reading.  I’m especially taken with Steig Larsson.  You may have heard of him?
  • And of course, finding more vintage.  Stay tuned for some amazing vintage menswear, and lots of good cold weather items.  I find the best wools and velvets here in Maine.

Flattery will get you everywhere.

I am thrilled to have my vintage 70’s silver metal/conch belt (now on Etsy) mentioned in the Popfizzvintage Blog post about the 70’s Glam Trend for fall. Reese has a great eye, and I’m not just saying that because she featured on of my items.


Where am I?
