I was going to make a lovely post this morning on my experiences at Costume College, but WordPress is making it difficult. I hate peddling, but the husband and I are catching up on some unexpected financials from this year (namely my emergency wisdom teeth extractions not fully covered by insurance, and some car issues … Continue reading Anachronistic and Impulsive needs your help!
Sorry I haven't posted much in the last few months. I've been settling into my new home on the West Coast and getting into the swing of being in a new Kingdom.

I'm going into her inventory and trying to … Continue reading The Importance of Mantles in Middle Byzantine Fashion
