If you were committed to a psychiatric institution, unsure if you’d ever return to the life you knew before, what would you take with you? That sobering question hovers like an apparition over each of the Willard Asylum suitcases. From the 1910s through the 1960s, many patients at the Willard Asylum for the Chronic Insane left suitcases behind when they passed away, with nobody to claim them. Upon the center’s closure in 1995, employees found hundreds of these time capsules stored in a locked attic. Working with the New York State Museum, former Willard staffers were able to preserve the hidden cache of luggage as part of the museum’s permanent collection. “There were many patients in these asylums who were probably not unlike friends you and I have now.” Abandoned Suitcases Reveal Private Lives of Insane Asylum Patients

The C.S. Lewis Foundation invites you to help with the founding of the C.S. Lewis College | Narnia Fans Hello fellow Narnia Fans!

Kids Explain Marriage I’m not really a big believer in kids containing in their tiny bodies all the wisdom and humor of the ages (in spite of the fact that this is the premise of at least 20 popular television shows). However, I am a big believer in, when first dates turn sour, running home and telling everyone I know who write obituaries that they need to print that I am dead. Problem solved!

There is nothing more fun than getting a friend addicted to thrifting–which is something I managed to do recently (yay for new thrift buddies!). I have been thrifting since I was a child, and remember with delight accompanying my mom on Saturday mornings to the local thrift shops and digging through the racks of $0.25 tees and exotic-looking vintage. (Little did I know that I’d grow up and wear some of those pretty frocks!) Although I’ve covered some of these tips in several of my thrifting videos, I thought I’d compile them into a post as I get asked these fairly frequently. The internet is your friend. a few thoughts on thrifting

Hipster Disney Princesses Are Here Here’s a trope people can’t get enough of: taking Disney princesses and putting them in hilarious other contexts, be it Vogue covers, fashion illustrations, subcultures and historically accurate dress. Now, they’ve made them into “hipster,” which is an extremely relevant thing. Buzzfeed got these from Deviant Art user viria13, who has them labeled “Fashion Princesses,” and explains, “At first I was going to draw hipster princesses, but got that I am not quite sure if I know the right meaning of ‘hipster’ so , just fashion.” We’re not really sure what hipster means anymore (besides a pejorative catchall for “people in pants who like bands!”) but you’d see any one of these outfits in an Urban Outfitters campaign, so… close enough! Well, Urban Outfitters or how Vanessa Hudgens dresses at Coachella.
