and we’re back!

I moved, first of all!  Only two blocks away, but tell that to my groaning shoulders.  Not to mention my executive function – you try coming up with #engaging #content when your brain wants a bad movie and your gullet wants a beer. Then, once I was finally craving vintage again, it rained for a whole damn week. Such is a Vermont spring (and such is the curse of small talk).

I’m almost all settled in now, with the grand exception of all the junk I haven’t yet unloaded. I moved in sort of a hurry, so I didn’t have a proper pre-packing sale. Every bit of back-of-the-closet dross came with me to the new place, and I’m dying to get it off my hands. Join me on Instagram (@quando_porpoise) tonight at 6 for a vintage flash sale! Everything in my Etsy shop marked down, plus lots of new goods.

in like a chimera

I had planned to post these last week when it hit 65 degrees, but the temperature plummeted the next day and ruined my whole “in like a lamb” theme. So here I am – better late than never, but still pretty damn late.

Not to mention that I already took these photos almost three weeks ago and I haven’t taken any since. It’s the end-of-season doldrums, I know, but that doesn’t make it suck any less. You’ve already seen all my winter clothes. I just want some straw hats and cotton skirts. I thought getting a head start on my spring/summer sewing would cheer me up, but all it’s done is tantalize: I’ve got a closet full of airy blouses I can’t yet wear. Boo hiss.

I’m also moving in less than two weeks (just down the block, but still a pain), so my blog might be quiet a little longer. Rest assured, though, that it’s not by choice.
