Early Colour Photographs

I am most definitely subscribed to too many email newsletters. However, one that consistently sends me interesting links and information is The History Channel email newsletter. One of the best emails ever was one I just got about an article on a collection of colour pictures from the early 1900s by Albert Kahn. He traveled the world taking photos using autochrome plates, one of the first color processing of film.

This Is Vintage Now CD Review

Hello readers! My eyes are finally getting back to normal and I am still catching up on schoolwork, but I thought you might be interested on a post I wrote for my music blog Tart Deco's American Popular Music Blog. Oh wait- you didn't know I had another blog? Yep and it's all about music with in-depth posts about certain pieces and genres of American popular music, including reviews, music clips and.... wait for it.... give-aways.

I just did a review on a new CD compilation that will be coming out soon called This Is Vintage Now that I think you all would be interested in reading. So pop on over and explore!

The Eyes are the Portal to the Soul

Sorry everyone for the sporadic posting lately. It turns out that I have some pretty bad eye strain between being in Grad school, work and other projects that employ my eyes. It is mostly caused from computer use, which I typically do about 6-8 hours a day or more.

Therefore I am limiting my online time to a minimum until I can get things under control again. I will still try to post as often as I can, but not as much as I want to :)

UPDATE: I don't actually have eye strain by severely dry eyes. Hopefully some extra special eye drops will remedy this and I will be back to my old pithy (hah!) self in no time!

Vintage Hawaiian Wedding Set

If you are into the late 50s/early 60s look and want to get something super cool for your wedding, or maybe an early Viva Las Vegas present to yourself and your man, CHECK THIS OUT! Its a vintage wedding set and its barkcloth. Even better yet, it's in bigger sizes- 46" chest for the man's shirt and 42" chest for the dress. You could even do double duty and tack up the hem to make the dress shorter for VLV.

It is $120 for the set from the fun etsy shop sarahblackheart.
