We Interrupt This Sugar Doll Award Top Ten....

I'm so glad y'all liked my first 5 things about me. I will TRY to come up with five more, but the weather today has been SO gloriously warm and summer-like, that I just could not bring myself to stay indoors and sit at the computer. Instead, I headed out with my stack of recently acquired 1930s Red Book magazines and other fashion ephemera, and lounged out on our backyard deck. Not quite bathing suit weather yet, but my 1930s sailor knit top, one of the other pieces I got from my new friend and fellow 30s knitwear addict, Tottie, was perfect! It reminds me of something Jean Harlow would wear on her day off or some of the knit resort wear separates I've seen in my beloved 30s knitting and crocheting books. Ok, back to basking I go. I'll try to stay focused and get the rest of the Sugar Doll list done some time soon!
