The evolution of sibling relationships have been documented in fiction, biographies, art, and psychological studies. But this 40 year photographic documentation of four sisters, to me, may just speak more than all the words.
Y’all know I love the Gap. I have and will continue to highlight their stuff on this blog. But sometimes you just have to wonder. I innocently opened a Gap promo email to find myself being exhorted to purchase the “Fur-Trimmed Snorkel Parka”. First off, after a disastrous honeymoon snorkeling experience, the word snorkel is not a selling point to me. Second, having been snorkeling – see disastrous reference above – I was flummoxed by the combination of the words fur and parka with snorkel. Even after checking out this bizarre sounding coat, I still cannot tell you from where or what the “snorkel” reference comes. Perhaps they were simply naming clothing as if “no one’s watching”.
Any attack on or defacing of art is reprehensible but when it is used as yet another way to denigrate women, well.
Every fall I become invigorated to cook and bake and do what I can to recreate those cozy Norman Rockwell kitchen scenes. I am halfway successful – I am very good at buying fall kitchen accessories and accoutrements! I am particularly eyeing these goodies from West Elm – that gold figurative owl mug is right up my alley or kitchen as the case may be!
Well, if you insist….yes, please!
I am such a wallflower at social gatherings that even saying goodbye to the host causes me extreme angst. I have been known – okay, I am known for – departing events, squirrel-like, head down as to avoid eye contact darting for the exit. Apparently, I am not alone and it is a “thing”, a rather established “thing” from the 1700s.

Maybe it’s called a snorkel because you’d need one to breathe if you put the hood up and cinched it close around the face (a la Kenny in Southpark)?
