Brijee Patterns Casey Skirt Pattern Testing and Blog Party

In June I participated in a pattern test for Brijee patterns. She is currently hosting a pattern giveaway on her blog here. I made my skirt from Robert Kaufman Superlux Poplin in navy. I’ve needed some more business formal looking skirts (the color is darker than the photos, but I wanted the skirt to be… Continue reading Brijee Patterns Casey Skirt Pattern Testing and Blog Party

Little Women Blog Party Tag

I’m joining Molly Rebekah’s A Ramble Through the Woods Little Women blog party; Abby from Lavender Spring is her co-host. I think the focus is mainly on the 1994 film version, so that is how I will be answering the tag questions (also, I strongly advise listening to the soundtrack Molly uploaded whilst answering the questions).… Continue reading Little Women Blog Party Tag

A Lovely Blog Party Tag

I’m joining up here. Jo and Laurie: Name a couple that should have stayed friends…or did stay friends… I disagree . . . most emphatically on the Jo and Laurie friendship point.

Classic Hollywood Celebration: Friendly Persuasion Review

I am linking up here again. Former friends introduced me to Friendly Persuasion years ago.

A Celebration of Classic Hollywood Week: Film Review of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

I’m linking up at An Old-Fashioned Girl for A Celebration of Classic Hollywood Week. Since I seem to be either criticizing or incoherently fangirling or only noting a few details when I write about movies, I thought I’d better look up some more formal guidelines for movie reviewing. I found two printouts from the Thompson… Continue reading A Celebration of Classic Hollywood Week: Film Review of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
