Excellent.


Reading outside under the apple tree this past spring.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Dressing gracefully begins with developing inner beauty, which consists primarily of a gentle and quiet spirit.
A woman of noble character exudes natural beauty that cannot be captured by merely donning a fancy gown. Externally, she is dressed modestly and elegantly.

Historic fashions offer modern women a sense of romance and elegance. Ladies of the past wore lace-trimmed petticoats, fine fabrics, proper gloves and hats.
While one does not want to appear as if she is dressing for a costume party (nor do we want to break the bank), every lady can borrow some vintage elements to create a historical flair.

The Regency, Victorian and Edwardian periods in particular provide some beautiful ideas for making our own clothes, or choosing clothing that has timeless appeal.

And I do not know where this wonderful bit came from, as Julia found it on the web. But if anyone knows, please be sure to let me know.

  2. Rosie: I believe that bit comes from the front page of Eras of Elegance, which I found thru your link. I am really enjoying your blog, your sweet spirit just shines through. Another place on the web you might like is Victorian Trading company. They have a really neat set of catalogues, which are free. On a different subject entirely, do you have the Robin Hood cookbook? If not, I would love to send you a copy. Please let me know. My e-mail is moodiesmum at yahoo dot com. Much love - Raquel XO
