I didn’t realize it’s been three months since we did a blog post here. We’ve been busy and the summer is flying by. Anyway, we’re still here, and of course Brabarella too.
May has been a beautiful month so far. We spent much of the last couple of days outside. The rain hasn’t dampened our spirits at all. Our young plants and newly planted seeds could use a steady soaking. It’s a nice day to stay inside, listen to the rain, and read a good book.
We are giving Tumblr another go. While our last go-around went pretty well in terms of popularity (5000 followers) and generating sales, inappropriate comments, men trying to find out personal information, men asking us to send them more revealing photos, men with gross avatars, etc., was a real turnoff and led us to shut it down. We’ll try again. We appreciate nice comments and encourage them. Remember too, when you share a post, leave the credits please.

Today was the first really nice weekend day this year. We finally got outside and did some garden cleanup. There is a lot yet to do. We also planted some ferns, hostas, rhubarb, thistle, and two grape shrubs. As for the photo – another vintage nightie that will be listed at some point soon.
Yesterday was foggy with showers but it had a spring feel to it – finally. March has been an awful month weather-wise.
Shown: Rago Garter Belt, Style 72522. It goes up to a size 6X/42. It has six straps with metal hardware and is actually a cross between a girdle and a garter belt. Some refer to these as girdlettes. It provides some shaping, and your stockings won’t go anywhere.
Hope everyone had a fun-filled and festive Saint Patrick’s Day. It’s been a cold but sunny weekend here. We have power though, so no complaints!

Well, we lost power for 28 hours this time. It just came on. About half the Cape is still dark. We managed to survive on candles, trips to the nearby hospital dining room, and some Manhattans to keep us warm. The clanging of our steam radiators sounds comforting for once.
Another winter storm is headed this way tonight. We’re supposed to get anywhere from 6-18″. We’ll see. The last nor’easter produced all rain and winds as high as 93 mph. Along with the snow, this latest storm could have winds up to 60 mph. At least we had a mild Saturday for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade here on Cape Cod.

It was quite the wild weekend here on Cape Cod. We only lost our power at home for 25 hours but it seemed like an eternity. It really makes one appreciate the things we usually take for granted. We’re still without power at our office. It’s a lower priority for the power company (and we fully understand) because it’s a downed wire from a pole to the building, rather than part of the grid. Hopefully we’ll be back to normal soon. We can still function – package by daylight and do our computer-related work from home. Spring is less than three weeks away!
Just a rainy Sunday afternoon. Just reading a good book and sipping a Manhattan.
