After whining about a sadly large number of bloggers who've been slacking off lately, I want to shift gears and applaud someone who is doing good work in the blogosphere.
Bethany blogs at The Glamorous Housewife. She recently put up a lengthy series of posts on the fashions and culture of earlier time periods: the Twenties, Thirties and Forties. Her posts both inform and entertain with historical references, pretty pictures and commentary on interesting trends, such as the emergence and different styles of makeup.
If you like learning, browse through Bethany's blog. If you're like me, you'll get hooked. I love learning about how women lived in earlier times. It provides context and insight into our present lives.
