Hello dears! Its been a long time since we’ve had a Favorite Comments post! If you are new around here and happen to be reading this, let me explain a little bit about this series. We like to put up a post every so often to recognize all of you, our wonderful readers, by publishing a smattering of our favorite words of love, edification, and encouragement that so many of you bless us with at the end of each of our posts. God has enriched our walk with Him by bringing you into our circle and inundating our lives with words that came straight from each and every one of your hearts. You have laughed with us and at us. You have prayed for us in times of need, and shared your own trials and prayer requests for us to lift up to the Lord. You have given us objective criticism, for which we thank you for being honest, and we all have grown in some manner or other with you as we walk together before the Lord. For this we thank you, and pray that our journey together will only grow brighter and more wonderful as time passes on. So without further ado…

Miss Pond: These look amazing. I totally agree on the much nicer and flattering A line on the trouser, and in hot weather, what could be more easy and comfortable to wear. On a separate note, your hair looks incredible, so perfect for the 20s through to the mid 50s. You look wonderful and happier each time I see your posts. I hope you feel it inside and that you are enjoying a very joyful time of life.
Elizabeth: I’ve been looking forward to seeing how these came out! I was not sure that the original Linden Lady pattern was for me, but these are amazing! They look so comfortable. Definitely on my list to make now. I would love to see a tutorial on the changes you made!
Marlene: Hello Girls, The andrews sisters are back. Where is Bing Crosby ? You will be fantastic all 3 in your new uniform. A piece of history that will not be forgotten thanks to you. With love
Jessica Cangiano: That is so immensely true regarding the ingrained sense of memory that our clothes (and accessories) can house. I feel that way, too, and find that it can work in both a positive and a negative way. There have been times in my life when an experience was so powerfully sad/painful/otherwise negative, that I could never bring myself to wear the pieces I sported that day again. As such, if I suspect such a day might be in the works, I will now wear pieces that I have as little attachment as possible, so as to avoid this scenario. Conversely though, and very happily, there are some items that are so imbued with positivity that just looking at them brings me happiness and I’ll often sport them to help bolster my courage, energy and/or happiness. Amazing, really, what our wardrobe can do for us.
Many hugs & happy holiday wishes,
Bonita: Brigid dear, this dress is heavenly! I haven’t heard of that kind of woollen fabric, and it’s perfectly dreamy! Thank you for showing us this stunning piece of workmanship; you are definitely inspiring me to unpack my machine and sit down again after many months away from my needle.

Rosi: YES!!! Ahhhh I’m so happy for you!!! Camera upgrades are the best! So looking forward to what beautiful things you will capture of our Father’s Creation!
Natalie: Roman Holiday is one of my absolute favorite movies ever, and your recreation of Audrey’s outfit is lovely! You look adorable and your backdrop is perfect.
Madison: These sunglasses are definitely so chic Charlotte! I think sunglasses are such an important staple accessory and have WAY TO MANY pairs…… As someone in a family that loves going camping I have been on my fair share of canoeing outings though I much prefer kayaking as I am less apt to tip over. .

Miss Pond: I love pin curling my hair, I also sponge roll it and rag roll it too. I use a classic setting lotion which does tend to dry my hair out, so maybe I’ll try something more natural. It’s been glorious weather here the last couple of days and I’ve been outside almost constantly making my garden over. You look as though you have caught the sun too my dear. You look beautiful.
Rachael: I laughed over your “springs”–so yes, I got a kick out them! Mine looks perhaps funnier since my hair is quite a bit longer–I really *do* get springs. ?
Sanne: Thank you for a lovely tutorial. You look so sweet in the photos. My hair is very long, so I don’t think pincurls work great for me. I’ve tried and got an (almost!) Lana Turner look, but I didn’t think it becomes me. Perhaps I should try again soon. Have a nice day.
Sarah: I have only moved once in my lifetime, and that was when I was relatively little, and I don’t think I will be moving any time soon. There are other life changing things happening this year, which means getting used to different circumstances and a new normal. It is going to be a challenge to let go of the past and accept the new with gratefulness.
Tatiana: I’ve moved more times than I can count, short moves, over the hills and far away etc. It’s never ever easy, saying goodbye, leaving Church, and everything like that. Not to forget making each new house a home and that is never easy. But I hope y’all settle in nicely.
Nathalie: I just discovered your blog! I had an amazing time scrolling through the archive. i love the vintage dresses. That dress is lovely and looks great on you (yeah for being the smallest)! I was thinking of buying those sandals myself, glad to read that they are that good.
Jessica Cangiano: You know, sometimes, in the midst of a world that feels as though its been turned upside on its head, a simple, classic outfit like this beauty is one the most grounding things we can do for ourselves. No need to complicate fashion when life already a three ring circus.
Many hugs & wishes for many joyful days to come,
Thank you all again so much for leaving us such special notes! We love you all so much!
Blessings in Christ.
