I love vintage dresses too Kitty. I have recently bought an Edwardian blouse with high collar, the intention being to wear when out in the sun drawing so I don’t get burnt. I have been pricing up a matching linen skirt and considering even making one, but they are expensive. I would love to go to to our local steampunk event, not with outlandish gadgets, just to look the part in costume and join in.
Yes it is great to be a girl. I love the variation we have.
I paint my nails with clear polish often, too, Mamie. I always use a base coat beneath my nails. It makes my nails look neat, pretty and glamorous. I keep my nails short, though: long nails – on me – bug me. I also often clean my nails with soap & a nail brush. I don’t like grubby nails. Plus, I do a lot of cooking and hate having onions beneath my nails: yuck.
