So not only did you teach me about writing memoir, you also taught me about reading and thinking about how others write memoir. Thank you so much! Rebecca

Bobby pins - Tipper brought back memories

I'm sure bobby pins had been used in these hair styles way back when.

I try to catch up on reading blogs on my subscribers list on weekends, and today I got a kick out of reading Tipper's post on "bobby pins" at the Blind Pig and the Acorn. It made me remember how important bobby pins were to hairdos of the fifties and sixties, but how important it was to never let one of them be seen in our hair . They were tools to create with but not for decoration. Read more about bobby pins and if they are coming back here.

Tipper is Cooking this Week at JCCFS

My friend, Tipper Presley, of Blind Pig and the Acorn fame, is teaching a cooking class at John C. Campbell Folk School this week.

To enjoy her posts on the class, click on this link

I don't know where Tipper gets her energy. She never stops and has made her blog on Appalachian culture one of the most popular on the blogosphere.

Let me know if you like it. I have sent so many of my friends to this site and they all thank me and subscribe to Tipper's interesting blog.
