For those of you who think I do nothing but shop for vintage treasures, I’m showing a bit of my Instagram photos from December. Instagram has turned out to be the surprise of the internet for me. I love these little glimpses into the lives of people around the world. It’s the only social media that I use without a direct connection to this blog, so it is more like play. You can get a sneak peek by clicking the link at the right. You don’t even have to set up an account to view photos.
I showed the progress on my French couture jacket. Here is the collar and the fringe. This was the last component in the construction of the jacket.
I share a lot of my Scottie dog collection on Instagram. There are lots of Scottie lovers there.
I’m in the process of reading the memoir of Stanley Marcus, a book I found at the Goodwill Outlet. Marcus was the CEO of Neiman-Marcus for many years. So much fashion history…
And more of the Holiday decorations.
This is a project I’ll be showing here in a few days. It’s a Harris Tweed / cashmere sweater mash-up.
Christmas dinner with my family was celebrated at a local restaurant. That’s my little great-nephew and his daddy, nephew #2.
Carolina Boulevard in Clyde, NC.
Today I visited a museum in Asheville, and took a few photos of some of the great architecture. This is the S&W Cafeteria, an Art Deco masterpiece.
I want to thank all of you who take the time to read The Vintage Traveler. Having this blog and the conversations and friendship here have helped me deal with the loss of my sister. I’m so pleased that over the past year the readership has almost doubled. I look forward to more of our discussions of fashion past.
