This vintage Jack Winter skirt is part of a suit, though I rarely wear the pieces together. What I find so curious about the skirt is the button and zipper are placed in the front, along with the kick pleat. I've rub across front pleat skirts, and front close skirts, but not all at once. I'm confident I'm wearing it as intended (the pockets won't work any other way) but to be honest, I've felt slightly off kilter all day-like wearing a shirt backwards.

I took some baked goods over to the volunteers at the Friends of the Library book sale today. I haven't been there since Christmas even though I live practically across the street. I've had a tough time medically, and I just don't like discussing it. As a result I've avoided people that were likely to notice, which I'm sure sounds silly to anyone not dealing with on-going medical issues. I don't mind drawing attention to my vintage clothing collection, but I don't really want to put myself on display. Anyway, people were happy to see us, and it was like a family reunion as most of the volunteers have known Danny since he was a baby. He found some birding books, one of the volunteers gave him a book, and I came home with a Farm Journal bread baking book for .50 cents. I'm glad we went.
I love our park this time of year. We only saw an elderly couple walking, and had the park essentially to ourselves.
...well, almost to ourselves. This curious squirrel followed us through the park making certain we didn't disturb any of his carefully buried stash of nuts.
I'll leave you with a photo of a "Stink Bug". As the name suggests, they smell bad, particularly if you smash one. The best I can describe it is a very overripe banana. Anyway, best to give them space.
Hope you're having a great week.
