Week in Review

Links of the Week





  • Immortal Ephemera has uncovered the elusive biography of Paul Cavanagh.  Thanks to Case 9840, basically Paul Cavanagh vs the IRS.  This is the perfect example of why you can't just look at Wikipedia for something and why solid biographies should always published.  





  • A chemise is a classic female garment.  This under-dress could be simple or quite elaborate.  In times past, it would be the garment women slept in.  Tea in a Teacup has directions for making your own chemise.  For me, it's another sewing project to add to my to-do list.

Feed Sack Fashion

One printed, plain weave cotton feed sack, unstitched wtih band paper label.
Print is a purple ground with a pattern of mandolins with green and orange accents.
Label reads "PILLSBURY'S BEST/XXXX/FEEDS." "100 LBS." Circa 1940s.; MNHS

My Marilyn in a Potato Sack Post got me thinking about I adore feed cloth.  It's beautiful and usable.  Our industrious ancestors used this cloth not only to fold the life giving flour, but for a multitude of cloth articles in the home including towels, rags, clothing, toys, blankets, aprons, and a multitude of other amazing things.

Happy Independence Day!

Fourth of July; 1916; MNHS

I love Independence Day!  For as long as I can remember, I have loved history, so celebrating historical events is right up my alley.  I love America, I just wish I could do something to help her restore herself.  Everyone has traditions and celebrations associated with this day.
