Thanks for your thoughts on the Paying to Blog bit, I've decided that at least for now I will continue to blog because I do enjoy it so much!
As I mentioned in a recent post, hubby and I took a mini vacation to a bed a breakfast town. A most wonderful idea if you ask me. We stayed at Anna V's B&B located in Lanesboro (B&B capital of Minnesota). It was a quaint little town that consisted of more B&B's than shops.
If you have never been to a B&B before, I highly recommend a stay. You get to wake up to delicious homemade food (Anna V's even used a lot of local farms and gardens in their food prep).

And the best part is I got to stay in a home built in the 1880's. It was beautiful, I wish I had taken more pictures of the inside. Since I wasn't able to buy a Victorian home while house hunting this summer, staying in one for a few nights almost made up for it.
While we were in town we decided to stop in a few of the shops. It's funny how every other shop advertised that they sold antiques, but what that meant was there was usually a small table or two that was filled with junk. Now, I'm not the most seasoned antique shopper, but I think that 1980's tupperware is more garage sale material than antique. Besides, I was on the hunt for some vintage patterns, fabric and notions.
I did not find what I was looking for, but I did stumble upon this cute little piece of lingerie at a shop just outside of Lanseboro. I thought about buying it, but the lady working in the shop did not know anything about it (approximate era, material, etc.) so I took a few pictures of it before leaving:
|Do you think it will fit?|
|Love the lace detail, great care was taken during the construction of this.|
|Side seam hook and eye closures|
|Button closure on the legs|
I'm trying to decide if I want to have a giveaway for this little lingerie piece or use it to make a template for a sewing pattern so I can reproduce it for myself (with my dimensions) and share it with all of you. What are your thoughts? Would you like a chance to win this? Would you rather that it was a pattern? Do you have no interest either way (a perfectly acceptable and respected option too)?
Live in this moment and love life!
