Visiting your site refreshes me, thank you. I have a question for you: what exactly is "vintage" to you?

Hi Cat,
This is one incredible site...I have been on your site now for an hour...and I'm at work!!! Being a kid of the 50's you have nailed everything. You really took me down a memory lane that I soon won't forget. I'll be back...I have soooo much more to read.
My Mom would have loved this.

Hi Cat, What an adorable blog!!!!!!! I am homemaker who is a real girly girl who loves vintage things too. I guess I am vintage homemaker too.I always wear red lipstick and love to wear dresses and skirts. I love your clothes!!!!!!!! You are a true gem and such a blessing in this era of gloomy frumpy women!! Keep up the good work! You must inspire so many women to appreciate what the feminists hate and tried to destroy! Good for you! look forward to reading your blog. Amy from brandon,fl

That was a great first post. I love June Cleaver and I Love Lucy. I wish times were like that again for women. Where home and family were the most important thing.

I love your blog! The post about "what's in your drawers" was awesome!
I was wondering how you store your adorable dresses and aprons. I have only one vintage apron so far, but I'm dragging out the sewing machine this weekend to make some from a 1950's pattern. I want to take care of them well, and I thought you might have insight or inspiration!
Keep up the good work! You're super awesome!
