  I finished my initials embroidered of my petticoat today. In reality, I started today and finished in a little time, while a delicious orange cake was baked in the oven. 

I´ve been missing a few days of Internet because family matters has grabbed my attention all this time.

   So I took advantage of having a couple of hours this afternoon and decided to make an orange cake to enjoy it at breakfast in the tomorrow morning, after preparing the dough, I left it in the oven and spent the time it takes to cook for to embroider me initials.

While I embroider, my house was flooded with the wonderful aroma of home baked cake and my mind flew to the 50s, thinking that is as it should smell a home in those years, when women of that era were a little more time than the stressed working women-housewives in this time.....
Meanwhile, I rambled could cost as a garment like this at that time and curiosity led me to search on Mister Google... I found answer in the copy of a catalog of the year 1956 (I think remember).  A petticoar could cost 5.98.... Then I wondered... How much is that cost today???   A possible answer is here..

We know that for vintage fashion look well, it´s important to wear appropriate underwear. However, I refuse wear a bra like Madonna  in her best time...

                       Orange Cake
 6 eggs, 1 glass of orange juice, orange and lemon zest, 1 glass of sunflower oil, 2 glass sugar, 3 glass flour, 1 and 1/2 on yest.
  Mix in a bowl the eggs, sugar, juice, oil and scratches. The yeast is mixed with flour and sprinkle the dough to mix well. Preheated oven at 180º. Line a pan with greaseproof paper and add the mixture, cook for half hour.
                                         Enjoy the weekend!!!!
