I’m going to change things up a bit and move Mad Men Monday to Friday. This should give me more time to watch the episode and gather photos, patterns & links and actually write a coherent post for your reading pleasure. Hope you don’t mind the slight delay. In place of Mad Men Monday, I shall be sharing a picture of my relatives from the early 20th century for the next few weeks. I think they are lovely, but I’m a bit biased.
My great-grandfather, Ludvig Bernard, who immigrated to Los Angeles from Norway in 1911. Or was it 1910? I’m sorry, mom, I’m getting my dates mixed up again. But back to the photo. I love the Norwegian flag on display in between the California & Los Angeles pennants hanging on the wall. This may sound silly, but it makes me think about embracing both the past & the future; the old & the new. So often we cling to nostalgia or go running blindly into the future. Personally, I like having one foot firmly planted on either side.
