Cissy
Do you remember them?  They are the Davis family from the sitcom Family Affair.  Naturally, I aligned with Cissy, the eldest sister.  Family Affair was one of those shows that I only saw in reruns when I was home sick from school.  Twins Buffy and Jody were...

Point me Toward Tomorrow
I love reading about pioneering women.  How brave they were to leave all they knew and loved back East and head out into the uncivilized unknown.  They often brought cherished talismans from home:  china, candlesticks, a quilt or two.  Ever-hopeful for a ne...

Starry, Starry Night
A few years ago for a time, I was bullied at work.  The day I returned from Christmas vacation that year, my boss asked me to meet her in the conference room.  I remember how happy I had been that morning - I was tranquil and rested from my time away, I had...

Just Beyond the Page
This is Jean-Honoré Fragonard's painting, A Young Girl Reading , 1770.  The reader is enraptured with her book but her mind is soaring with vivid imaginings born on the pages.  I see her as a lass on the brink of womanhood who is about to leave a life of qu...

On the Twelfth Day of a Feminine Christmas
  I have a love/hate relationship with New Year's Eve.  In New England the weather is almost always seasonably frigid and it just seems cozier to stay tucked indoors.  But tradition calls for a convivial and festive party like our "cover girl" is enjoying. ...

On the Tenth Day of a Feminine Christmas
For those of us who work full-time, crafting Christmas is a challenge.  I find that things are not so Christmas-relaxed in the office anymore.  I recall wonderful Christmas parties held right inside the workplace years ago and days on end of decorating and ...

Of the Commonplace
Not too long ago, I happened upon a notebook I kept when I was a young married wife.  It was tremendously fascinating to me.  And although it had lists of homekeeping things such as cheeses to try, it also said a lot about its author.  I had great fun pouri...

Inconsequential Miscellany
Speaking of brooches, I just love the cheeky one on the top of this model's hood.  I suspect the image may have been styled by the great Diana Vreeland who was fearless in her vision, whether it was Twiggy's freckles or her shameless love of fur.  This imag...

On the Eleventh Day of a Feminine Christmas
I really want to read the three page special on Christmas Glamour on the cover of this vintage magazine.  Maybe it would help me find just the accessory to wear to my party tonight.  I know her headband with bling is easy to find these days.  She looks so p...

On the Ninth Day of a Feminine Christmas
I have never been able to wrap well.  It's the corners that do me in - I always have too much overhang.  My mother's Christmas gifts are always beautiful with little touches of silk holly, greenery and berries tucked into the ribbons.  Every package, a crim...
