Merry Christmas!

I know things have been quiet around here lately, but it's because we've been so busy between sprucing up the new house and getting ready for New Orleans! There will be so much to share with you in the new year. :)

Today I volunteered in the shop with Michael since he was working. I wore a gown I made last year (and wore on Christmas last year working on the tent project!) but I've never gotten pictures of me wearing it! I have to admit I was very pleased with how my hair turned out. I'm also wearing the gown over my new false bum. It was really nice to be able to work with my husband and friends all together on Christmas!

My Christmas gift from Michael was an 18th century mourning ring with little diamonds set in the eyes of the death's head. I love it. And he totally had me guessing about what I was going to get! He's a pretty good gift-giver...

Your dress is very beautiful from cap to toe! Thank you for sharing.
And is there anything better than working in period clothes together with friends and loved ones?

Hope your New Year will going to be magical.

Lovely dress! It seems really confortable to work in.

May I ask...are you using a stays? Because your dress fits very well.

Samantha said...

Thank you!

Ju Lee, yes I have stays on underneath. They are so comfortable since they are 2 years old and nicely broken in. But it's definitely time for a new, prettier pair!
