So all of you who sent in a guess as to the identity of last mystery object are way too smart. It is indeed a shoe button hook, though a nice lady at my nearby antique shop thought it was a crochet hook. Unfortunately I couldn't find any pictures of buttoned boots in my collection, but I thought these slippers were adorable.
And now the important part...(cue drumroll)...the winner of this month's drawing for a review copy of Bewitching Season is...The Book Muncher! Ms. Muncher, I'll be contacting you off-blog about getting your mailing address.
In the meanwhile, this is going to be a short entry because I have some work that needs doing in the next day and not much time to do it in...so I thought I'd take a minute to ask if there are any suggestions for topics that you'd like us to post on in the future. Do you want to hear more Weird History Stories? What about learning about guys' clothes? Or about the books people were reading? Or what exactly happened at all those balls where the fluffy dresses we post pictures of were worn? Or what girls did for hobbies or fun? Or what they snacked on?
Talk to us. We'd love to hear from you.
