I am the first to admit that I am fickle.
One year I will be passionately involved in cosplay and the next I will be knee-deep in gardening. One week I will be working madly on completing a cross-stitch and the next it will lay neglected while I focus on making cards.
But despite my changeable nature and wide interests there are some things that stay constant - like my love of all things old, vintage clothes and items.
I know there is a plethora of blogs on the netsphere penned by writers and photographers with far greater talent than my own. I almost talked myself out of writing this blog - because what could I add that these other bloggers haven't already?
So why is this blog here at all? Because another constant in my life has been diaries, journals and blogs. I'm a great believer in looking at the path you have walked in your life and recording the things you do so that one day you can look back on them with a fond reminiscence.
Recently (that is, in the last 6 months) I have been inspired by friends and by other bloggers to begin the slow process of building a vintage wardrobe. Before that I mostly just whistfully admired vintage fashions and collected vintage sewing patterns. I occasionally sewed an item or two but these were considered costumes and rarely included in my day-to-day wardrobe. To me, building this wardrobe is actually a bit of an adventure that involves field trips, exciting finds, disappointments and experiments. It is the kind of everyday adventure that I want to be able to look back on and remember.
So I decided that I would add this little blog to the mass that already exist.
