Hello dear friends! It has been a while since we did an Our Favorite Comments post, so here is the latest with all the greatest from you, our darling followers! Enjoy! 🙂
Cassie – Hi Brigid! You can imagine my happiness to see your post today!
Okay, so I can totally see what you are saying is so true!! Just yesterday I was looking over the dress that I will be wearing to that vintage and antique show, (I just posted a photo of it on Instagram) thinking how it really didn’t have much of a waistline. I quickly concluded it was because it didn’t have the belt with it anymore, not even connecting the two to make this conclusion! (I think that this is quite overlooked unless you see a 30’s dress in real life or modeled in that nature; without being belted etc.) That is till I read your talk through!
Your deeper tid-bit of people being tight on monies and not wanting to spend any extra on closures; I can definitely see too playing a large part in this!
I think that our/my next item to look into should be why the 30’s hemlines were so much longer, I mean, look at the 20’s just a decade before! Was it because the feminism movement was calming down? Why were the people who needed to save every penny, spending on “extra” fabric? I suppose that when the great depression hit the hardest hems were starting to come up and stayed that way through the 40’s because of the War. But… I’ll try to look into that a bit…
Thanks so much my vintage loving friend–Brigid!
Charlotte! These graphics made Brigid’s post so enjoyable! I don’t think that I will ever sing enough of your praise!

Hana Marmota – A most excellent point about being nice to others!
And a most excellent outfit – I’d wear this in a heartbeat. And it definitely helps that it’s beautifully captured in the photographs. It’s funny how sometimes in the yuckiest of places, you find these lovely spots. My father has a tendency to admire old industrial areas, so I think I’ve developed a sort of sense for it over the years of travelling with him; but it’s still always a discovery.
(And I have my own Swiss Army knife, a gift from him, that I’m rather attached to, even if I only use it occasionally – so I like the title, too.
There is also a lovely view of my own hometown from the cemetery – or, rather, from the hill the cemetery lies on. We used to go there in the evenings, I guess on Sundays, the whole family; the town lies to the west of it, so it was always a breathtaking view with the sunset. Trying to make some sense of your view; American little towns differ much from Czech ones!
Kate – I believe that in life, we should always be striving to be more and better than we are, both temporally and spiritually. Boundaries are often a way to achieve that. However, I don’t think that we are meant to live an expressionless, regulated life. We are here to feel joy! God does not want us to be miserable — He created the earth and sent His Son so that we WON’T be. So, I guess what I’m saying is that I totally agree with you. We should do what’s right, but that should include doing what makes us happy. (I adore your blog, by the way! It makes me wish I had friends like the three of you. I live in a town of about 300 people and most are older folks. Not many opportunities for friendships outside of my family. Ah, well. )
Sarah – Thanks for sharing this. I am finding out that I am not the only one with problems. I tell myself over and over that I am not the only one in the world that has problems but it never sinks in till I read about others problems. So thank you for sharing this with all of us blog readers. And btw I love your jacket. If I lived near you I would be running over all the time to borrow it =) And great photo shoot!
Miss Michelle – What a sweet post.
I love you outfit. I don’t think it’s eccentric at all. (Though perhaps I can be a wee bit eccentric myself.)
Oh, what a lovely view.
I don’t think there is anything wrong with having a bit of something that brings you such cheer everyday. It is a blessing from the Lord! As long as you aren’t being greedy is just fine. He fills our lives with good things. He doesn’t have to give us things like chocolate. He didn’t have to give us beautiful view either. But, I’m oh so glad & thankful He saw fit to do so! ^_^
Charlotte Shepherd (Our precious Gran) – This blog was absolutely amazing every photo was beautiful to look at, and you young ladies are so easy on the eyes (I’m not partial), your three amazing busy bees. And I love and cherish you deeply. Keep up the amazing good work !!!!!!!!!
Madison – Oh My, those necklaces are stunning!!! I love the Blue Butterfly:) I have always dreamed of taking pictures in a butterfly garden and I must say that you all did a stunning job with this post. The pictures are breathtaking and so very magical. Of course your ensembles paired perfectly with each necklace and It all looked like something from a story. Fabulous!!!
Naomi Bennet – My! Thank you so much for linking to the writing contest! Writing is my biggest passion, and I’m so excited to have finally found a competition I’m old enough to enter – normally it’s always 18 plus.
Abby – What a lovely thing to collect! I love love love them all, but I think that last set is one of my favorite. I just adore those little rosettes, and like you said, polka dots make everything better!
I clicked over to Kingdom Pen , and have totally fallen in love! I feel that writing will most likely be what God calls me to do, and I love that these people have created a way to encourage aspiring writers like me! I have already subscribed to them, and hope to enter this contest should time allow. (My actual writing homework has been taking up every waking second lately. Let’s just say that a certain someone is not very good at sticking to word limits. ) I hope you enjoy your new role in their ministry!
Nora – OMG that is very excitingggg!! I had braces once (though probably at the wrong time in my life and now my teeth are crooked again – only had it for a short year!) and it was the weirdest thing when it was removed! You will notice the absence and your mouth will feel a bit weird for a while but I cannot wait to celebrate with you!! Yay for eating a whole bunch of food without worrying about them getting stuck!!
Samantha Snyder – Haha Charlotte, you can never know what to expect, can you? One time I had an older man try to give me clothing advice after a show. His idea of an outfit consisted of black slacks and a white shirt. Hmm.
Hang in there with those braces! It’s totally worth it! (I had ‘em too, and I have never regretted it!)
Thank you, everyone, for leaving us such special comments! You make blogging worth it! 🙂
