From the webcomic Dresden Kodak – mad science girl’s path to “gaining a diseased mind fit only for science.” I too went through the “Sign Your Name Only In Tengwar” phase.
Crusin’ Australia has vintage repro shoes and does $12 shipping worldwide. Sizes 5 to 12. Made of leather. Suede dancing soles available. This pretty much solves all my shoe whining issues.
Dunbar and Sloane, the Wellington auction house, is having a significant “vintage costume and boudoir accessories” auction. Massive online catalog is available, in-person viewing starts from Sunday August 7th. I don’t need anything but I’ll go along to see. “Finesse Emerald Green Leather Clutch Purse together with green kid Gloves.” Hmmm. “Three Vintage Unopened Pairs of Stockings together with Priestley’s velvet talcum powder tin, unopened.” Awww! “Selection of Vintage Sewing and Knitting Patterns.” Hwaaaaa! Thanks to Tamara of Seven is a Journey for this hot tip!
