RETRO TUESDAY: Etiquette Advice from 1922 ~ 'The Proper Way for a Lady to Sit'


"No lady should cross her knees so that her skirts go up to or above them; neither should her foot be thrust out so that her toes are at knee level. An arm a-kimbo is not a graceful attitude, nor is a twisted spine! Everyone, of course, leans against a chair back except in a box at the opera and in a ballroom but a lady should never throw herself almost at full length in a reclining chair or on a wide sofa when she is out in public...The proper way for a lady to sit is in the center of her chair, or slightly sideways in the corner of a sofa. She may lean back, her hands relaxed in her lap, her knees together, or if crossed, her foot must not be thrust forward so as to leave a space between the heel and her other ankle. On informal occasions she can lean back in an easy chair with her hands on the arms."

REVIVING THE ART OF CONVERSATION...Or Words We Should Use More Often Like


Who hasn't wanted to flee the scene as quickly as possible at least once or twice in a lifetime, when the band was winding down or the fuzz was raiding the gin joint?
How does the saying go,"'we're here for a good time, not a long time" - a wise old friend of mine (GS, you know who you are, no need to name names) always knew just the right time to cash in her chips so to speak and split, a master in the art of the 'skedaddle'!

RETRO TUESDAY: Etiquette Advice from the 1930s ~ 'Table Manners for Ladies'


"Ladies are never seen to bite into food. A lady cuts a piece of food into 'pop it into the mouth' portions. Even and especially toast. One breaks a small piece of toast, butters it, jams it, and then pops it into the mouth to chew"
