time flies

November 1, 2017

hard to believe it’s November already

only 54 days until Christmas – maybe you didn’t want to know that!

but first — my studio tour is this weekend

time to tidy up  – everyone welcome

the first journal page for this month is already finished

over the years I’ve saved interesting clothing labels

did you guess that I’m a pack rat?

the dress is a copy from one my Mom made

the bodice is smocked – and it really did have a blue ribbon

looking through pictures I realize that Mom made most of my clothes

girls didn’t wear pants in those days – only snow pants with your skirt tucked in

does anyone remember the horrible brown cotton stockings?

mine were always falling down

    That’s a fun journal page *and* a way to justify having been a pack rat!

    Awww…you still have that same cheeky smile! Hey, I still remember stuffing my school tunic into those snow pants. So lumpy and uncomfortable. Girls were finally allowed to wear pants to some schools the year after I graduated!

      Louisa – oh yes! times have changed, but I think it made us tougher. My granddaughters have no idea.
