Hola! Where does the time go, Geez Louise! Half summer is already gone, and I am first now updating this from last December, tsk tsk. Bad Jan! So, been busy puttering around the yard, as always, and paying more attention than I probably should be to politics. The kitchen "remodel" is on hold due to budgetary constraints, but I hope to have that remedied before the end of the year. And I have yet to paint the guest room - it's only been 3 years now since I moved in to this version of Maison Newton, I'm not lazy or anything, nope... LOL! Take care and have a great rest of the summer. Jan

Movie Fashion Boards

I found these at The Wall Street Journal, of all places -- in their weekend newspaper.  Checked online (the firm I work for has an online subscription that we all can access) and there they were!  These are some seriously wonderful fashion boards!  All these looks from the February 4, 2012 article "Costume Drama" talking about fashions in recent movies.  Check it out (if the link continues to work).  My favorite is the Marilyn look.
