It has been a long day – at the hospital. To make a long story short, I fell on a patch of ice and broke my left shoulder. My left arm is in a sling and will be for six weeks. I have a few graphics prepared in advance and I will continue the blog posts until those have been posted. Once those have been posted, I don’t know how much I’ll be able to do with one hand but working on the graphics is a highlight of my days and I will try to do what I can. The descriptions for my blog posts may be brief because I’m limited to “pecking” at the keyboard with one hand (this took a while to type).
Here is an illustration of two Victorian ladies at a piano. They are modelling visiting toilettes. The image is from the October 1889 issue of The Delineator magazine. Click on images to enlarge.
OUCH!! Sooooo sorry that you fell & hurt yourself! Hopefully it won’t be too terribly difficult to deal with, but more importantly, I hope it causes you minimal pain!
SO SORRY to hear about your accident, hope your shoulder improves soon. Have you thought about dictating your posts? Windows (if you use a pc) has a free included voice transcription. It takes a while to learn but maybe you will have time to practise! Alternatively, you could create a small video, again using voice and your pictures.
I’m so sorry! Hope you feel much better real soon! xoxo
First of all, thank you for what you offer us but the most mattering it is that kept silent restores you very fast and you take care of you! A bad fall it is never good. Do not get tired too much in front of the computer and rest(base) you. Kisses
I’m so sorry to hear about your accident. I truly hope your shoulder feels better soon!

Thank you all for your kind thoughts. ♥ I will be sure to do everything the doctors recommend (including resting my arm) so I can heal as quickly as possible.
Merry Christmas to you as well ScrappyMama!
Meg, it’s interesting to know of the voice transcription option.
I hope you are recovering okay-ice is no fun! I so enjoy the vintage items you finds. Try to enjoy the holidays anyway and have a Merry Christmas!

I’m not able to do the things I’m used to doing for Christmas (esp the cooking) but I won’t let that put a damper on my enjoyment of this wonderful time of year. One of my boys and his wife have everything under control and we’ll have a great time.
Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
