In the Eye of the Storm Again: And Now Hurricane Ike! September 6, 2008

Filed under: Worldly women — rebmas03 @ 10:16 pm

Last week I posted a link to the Single Mom Meltdown blog and followed the story of a young mother and her children evacuating from the New Orleans area (many of her family lost their homes in Houma). And now she’s packing up AGAIN. In spite of all the chaos, she manages to provide better reports about the situation than any of the media. Read Claire’s story here. My heart goes out to her!


More Vintage Than You Can Shake a Stick At

I’ve recently come across a new favorite vintage clothing and designer resale vendor. Her name is Nelda and she has THREE stores and a blog. Nelda has truly embraced the virtual shopkeeping life and has the stock to back it up, plus LIVE customer help. If you been craving a ’70s caftan, a ’60s cocktail dress or a ’50s New Look frock, start clicking: Etsy shop; Storesecured shop; ebay store, and Blogspot.
