Welcome to all my SITStas!!!


I am so excited! I just found out I'm the featured blogger today on The Secret is in the Sauce! Yay! Welcome all my SITStas; please relax, pull up a chair, and welcome to my world (cue slightly maniacal laughter).

I'm an actress and historical costumer by trade, so a lot of my posts have to do with my costuming projects and analyses; do a search on my blog for "dress diary", and you'll see what I mean. I also post often about my favorite stores and products, and have been known to do the odd review or two;) On top of all that, I love baking, and every Friday I post my favorite recipes. But, I decided to feature posts today that cover some of my regular rantings and musings; I sometimes post about politics, current affairs, and musings on my life and experiences. I know not everyone will agree with me, but I love to get my opinions out there!

I talk a lot about body image and struggling with my weight, and this is a post trying to bring some sanity into the debate:

This summer had a lot of wonderful moments for me; I played a faery at the Bristol Renaissance Faire, and the character is not what you might expect (nary a glitter tutu or nylon wing in sight!):

This season at Bristol meant a lot, I learned a lot about myself, and I wanted to share my powerful experience with y'all:

Please stay and look around at my other posts, if you like! Also, be sure to click on my blogroll, which feature my favorite daytime reading, and remember, when you see the SITS icon, don't forget to comment!

Congrats on your SITS day!! Can't wait to look around some more. I read your post on weight and Scarlett Johanns... ok, I totally can't spell her name!! Married to gorgeous Ryan Reynolds, I love her take on weight and Hollywood. Finally - and she's noted as one of Hollywood's "curvy" actresses. After reading what she said, I think I like her just a bit more now too!

Happy SITs Day!!

Woah, a historic costumer?? Nice! I love to wear dresses worn around Henry VIII's time. I currently have an Anne Boleyn costume. I didn't make it though. I bought it. But I love putting it on.

Congratulations on your SITS day, good job!

I know what you mean, I reside in Southern California but in my heart I really reside in Florence Italy. Also in my mind I live in a flat while I'm renovating my lovely house in the hills of Piazza de Michael Angelo.

Stopping by from SITS! Congrats on your SITS day! Beautiful blog and I totally agree with the need for change to help the environment. Instead of bottled water I found that Sigg bottles are great (just make sure BPA free). I fill it up at home from our filtered water(reverse osmosis filter) and bring it with me during the day! its great!

Happy SITS Day, Ginger!

My older daughter has her degree in Theatre and is now working in radio. I did get to see her perform in NYC summer 2008 when she was part of NYC Fringe Festival. It wasn't Broadway, but it WAS New York City! Something I can cross off my Bucket List! My younger daughter is now pursuing her degree in Theatre at a college in PA.

I'll be back to read more of your blog (It's really late and I'm really tired!)

Congratulations on your SITS day. Just to let you know, I think I just died and went to heaven! A blog written by a theatrical costumer with oodles of pictures. Gorgeous! I'm from the UK, studied drama, and have a lifelong love of vintage clothes, costumes and particularly Victorian gowns. I'm delighted to have found your blog. I've already had an explore, and really enjoyed your breakdown of how you are making your green victorian gown. Beautiful. Sending smiles.
