I just got back to California after being on the equator - I mean, in Phoenix - for three days. Faith and I were trying to get her house in order, but it aint easy when you have no air conditioning and it's 107 degrees outside...yes, I said 107. Read more of the hilarity here.
I don't especially like hot weather because I really don't look good in no clothes. I am a layers kind of girl and I don't do shorts. I am going to miss my Faithy dearly, but Forest promises we can go visit often (just not in July) and when I stepped out of the airport in LA the ocean breeze never felt so good.
Before I left last weekend I snuck off to the Ventura flea market for the morning just to see what was out there. I'm looking for a credenza for our TV...didn't find anything, but I did find these fabulous McCall's magazines from the 50's. Who knew? They are big like W magazines and filled with so many amazing photographs and dresses. They also have a little feature in the back of each on fabric and their new patterns.
I want to scan and frame just about every spread, but here a few of my faves:
Just got word that our friends who are coming for a visit are just pulling into town so gotta go finish cleaning! I'll post more of the mags on my flickr soon too...
