The life and adventures of a mildly dotty old bird.
This seems to be happening more and more in small communities - really interesting if it moves to the bigger cities... happy new year Aril
Cue an entrance from a pet hobby-horse...The holidays usually offer an occasion to "commune with the ancestors/ghosts of Christmases past". Coincidentally, I've been remembering the expeditions to select fabrics for sewing gift nighties or toddler clothing, or even! a trip to a professional dressmaker for that special dress. (Having lived through the Great Depression, when one reused any whole scrap of cloth, the older ladies considered buying new yard goods a treat!) Aside from haute couture and bridal wear, whatever happened to the dressmakers?
This view just made me smile. Seen in London on a warm sunny day. Have a great weekend everyone. Arilx
