The First Lady Astronaut Trainees / Mercury 13

"The men go off and fight the wars and fly the airplanes and come back and help design and build and test them. The fact that women are not in this field is a fact of our social order."

- John Glenn of the Mercury 7, testifying before a House subcommittee in 1962

"The women underwent the identical tests that the male candidates had undergone. In the end, 68% of the women passed with ‘no medical reservations’ compared to 56% of the men. The 13 females who passed were known as the Mercury 13. They were Bernice ‘Bea’ Steadman, Janey Hart, Geraldine ‘Jerri’ Sloan Truhill, Rhea Allison Woltman, Sarah Lee Gorelick Ratley, Jan Dietrich, Marion Dietrich, Myrtle Cagle, Irene Leverton, Gene Nora Jessen, Jean Hixson, Wally Funk and Geraldyn ‘Jerrie’ Cobb…

Cobb had tested in the top 2% of all tested candidates, male and female.”

Mason Jar Succulent Pots | Lolly Jane
Last weekend my mum and I came across one of those beautiful flower stalls that have gorgeous fresh flowers that you need to take out a small personal loan to purchase. My mum fell in love with a succulent in a jar - but fell out of love with the very high price! So I added the idea to my mental Christmas gift list, and then came across this DIY - kismet! I love the vintage, distressed feel of the pot. If you’re a brown finger, you can always pop a faux plant in your jar (though succulents are pretty hardy!)
