2012 is drawing to its close and for this little blog it hasn’t been that great a year. They first half of the year I struggled with my health and then it was summer and vacation and then an autumn that was kind of overshadowed by 8 weeks of plumbing renovations. Oh the mess! We are still not completely recovered from that. I was also a bit crazy in venturing a new project that I don’t think I have mentioned here as it has nothing to do with the 1940’s. I am working on actually recreating cosmetic recipes from the 18th century to see how they actually work at Madame Isis’s Toilette. It’s great fun, at least if you are interested in makeup history, which I guess I have to admit isn’t something everyone is passionate about. Odd but true. Still, excuses, excuses, I know and despite it all I get new readers steadily, so thank you for reading!
I’m far from tired of the 40’s and I’m not at all tired of my wardrobe project, but I feel a need to get myself a boost for the upcoming year. A drawback in posting less is that I have started to second guess myself. I start on a tutorial and then I think f all the great tutorials that are already out there and I give up. I take photos of an outfit and don’t feel it is good enough and so on. So I’m asking you, what do you want to read about? More about the wardrobe project? Makeup? Hair? Anything else? I have ventured into other decades in a few posts just because a decade doesn’t come from a vacuum. Would you find it interesting with more posts that cover1900’s-1950’s to put the 40’s in perspective? More regular features like movie reviews and Etsy-finds? I would love to hear your feedback.
