Vintage Miscellany

Here in the Northern Hemisphere, the weather has turned fall-like, which is a real relief after the scorching summer we have suffered through.  Still, it’s sad to see summer leave us.  I love the green mountains, and the roadside flowers and being able to take my morning walk with looking like I’m on an Arctic trek.   My problem is that I can’t fully appreciate our super fall weather for worrying about the winter.  I need to do like our cover girl and sport a cozy sweater, a cool pair of jeans and sneakers.

Well, cozy up and enjoy this week’s links:

    Great information Lizzie. On the hat expo – you say it “openED” and then you give 2012 for the year.. ? I’m going to go check out most of those links.
