A Wonderful New Year to YOU!

I wanted to wish you all a blessed year in 2010.

J and I had quite a New Year celebration. We drove to Oklahoma to see the Flaming Lips in concert. J had not seen them before so he was super excited...and of course the band did not disappoint. I like music...J LOVES a concert I tend to notice the visual aspect more than the music. Comes from being a visual person rather than an auditory person I suppose. Of course there was plenty to see!!! (see pics below)
I have big year ahead of me that I am gladly looking forward to!

1. March will bring my wedding! From there forth I will be "Madame H."
...says in a giddy girl giggle....

2. I am seriously going to continue my education.

3. I have to really get myself in gear to start my own business.

4. HOUSE: Must have...looking into buying but will probably lease

and of course costuming projects:

1. Two 18th century riding habits: I was planning on a maroon velvet. That has changed to green (due to me wanting to use the maroon velvet for another caraco). The second riding habit is for my mother (who owns the horses and ask for one lol...much to my surprise)

2. J's 18th century ensemble: Breeches, Shirt, Waistcoat, and Frock

3. New Shift

4. New Stays

5. Renaissance Gown for me and something for J.

6. Gold Silk Robe a la Francaise

7. Two of these three French Court Dresses from fashion plates I can't stop staring at!

8. Finish two polonaises (the cotton print and the same in stripe silk)



  1. I vote for the second court gown, but that is just me. Glad to hear you had an enjoyable celebration, and congratulations on the impending nuptials!

  2. THAT'S MY FAVORITE TOO!!! That will probably be first. Thanks for the well wishes!

  3. Your readers are begging for a new blog entry! How goes the wedding preperations?
