Wednesday Welcome

A warm Wednesday welcome to new follower Gina of Beauty From Ashes.  Gina is a  talented seamstress, and her blog is devoted to her penchant for historical costume.  Those of you interested in Victoriana will find some good inspiration there.

As her subscription serves to remind me of my concern that the blog has been too narrow in focus in the last few months (and because it's generally a good idea to cultivate followers who make macaroons), I've had a rummage about and found the collection of cdv's of New England seafarer's and their families I bought some time ago.




But as you've decided that this year you'll concentrate on the 1920s, here's my grandparent's wedding photo

  3. Oh what a wonderfully warm welcome!! Thank you so much! I found your great blog while researching British Royal Family Orders. Your imformation will be very useful in a future dress project! And it also causes my Royal loving heart to be quite happy! By the way, I adore that image of Princess Alice of Teck...her tiara is one of my all time favorites. I know that I will be visiting this blog often! Thank you also for posting pictures from your collection! Your Grandparents look quite darling...your Grandmother's hat is faaabulous!!
