Introducing Vince

I'd like to introduce you to my sweet husband, Vince. Our love of history brought us together six years ago and has continued to be a mutual passion. Vince is also a long time Civil War reenactor, portraying both Civilian and Military, and a graduate of Penn State University with a Major in History - among his other degrees. He is currently studying to earn a PhD in Business.

Vince will be a co-blogger here at I'm sure you'll find his witty posts vastly more interesting than my picture posts.

Welcome to the blog world, Vince!

  1. What a darling picture. You two are a cute couple. It's so wonderful to have hubbies who share our passions and play history with us :-)

  2. Heh, I feel like that explains the subject line of the previous post, maybe. I'm gonna quote myself, though, in response to your statement about your picture posts--"Pictures or it didn't happen!" ;) Also, hello Vince! I look forward to seeing what you have to say.

  3. that is just a fabulous picture! Wonderful! I'm slowly drawing my hubby into the world of vintage. Nothing better than having your love share your loves!

  4. It has indeed been wonderful for us to share an appreciation of history through the lens of aesthetics. I spend most of my days doing engineering stuff--which has also prevented me from doing much reenacting--so conversations with Lindsey about fashion design of the Regency Era, for example, are a welcome relief. Coupling my basic knowledge of standard history with her immense knowledge of costume history has been a lot of fun.

    And I know Lindsey has so many more ideas and experiences than what shows up on this we thought I could occasionally post--sort of as her assistant/student/scribe. I learn a lot from her and her passions, and I think you can too!

  5. I just found your blog from the nester and LOVE it. My bachelors is in Theatre Design, and I got to do a little costuming. Your work is great!!!! How blessed you are to get to do this for a living. I'm dying to learn to sew again (have totally forgot everything I knew) and have no clue where to start. Any beginners book or machine you could recommend would be appreciated!

  6. Although it may not be a beginners machine in price, I love my Bernina sewing machine. I've had it for about 7 years now and only take it to the shop once a year for a good cleaning - it's never had any problems and always runs great! I would definitely recommend Bernina for an excellent sewing machine.

    I like the book "Complete Guide to Sewing" by Reader's Digest. I don't think it's still in print, but there are plenty of used copies out there - Ebay, Amazon, etc.

    Hope this helps you get started! You should definitely learn to sew again, it's so fun to be able to make all sorts of things. :)

  7. You two look so sweet in that picture!
