Today was another day spent in the cabinet shop, and tomorrow will be another, but it will be the last, and we are happy, happy and hopeful.
I wore my green, embroidered dress from Macy's over a very lovely cream, 1900's inspired, blouse from Chadwick's. To add to the photo, I stepped into Johanna's creamy, cut-out heels, my vintage shawl, and the latest addition to our vintage accessories, a lovely, ivory umbrella...
The air that swept through the finely woven layer of my shawl whispered of autumn, and of rain. I could feel the thickness of the coming storm in the air around and over the silky fabric of my umbrella...
Fall is upon us.
Johanna flitted downstairs in her vintage blue, pleated skirt, found at a thrift store, and a hand-me-down green, paisley top. Beneath the top she wore our wool, beaded tank from Dress Barn.
And to top it all off and add just a hint of sparkle, she laid some glittering, blue-greeny, vintage beads around her neck, and clipped onto her ears the matching blue earrings.
Grace wore a burgundy dress from J.C.Penney, with sweet, little rosebuds around the color, and buttons across the bodice. For warmth, she enveloped herself in her pink shawl.
Johanna and I discovered something tonight. We were browsing Ebay, for various reasons, and came across a gorgeous navy pillbox hat, velvet, with two ribbon bands and little buttons, worn and owned by Myrna Loy.... Really and truly!! We nearly died with our exuberant gasps, watching the time from 23 min. to 10 min. to 35 seconds. And the someone else got it, because we couldn't really, even though it was a steal at $99.99! We are sad now.... but full of thoughts, whether they be happy or sad.
Shall we say good night? Tomorrow we shall see you again!!!
Emma and Johanna
