Pittock Mansion Picnic 2010

Hello friends and readers. I hope your week is going well. We had some more doggy drama this week. Leila ended up with a nasty infection on her neck and wound up back in the puppy ER. After some good drugs and some loves she is slowly beginning to mend.

On a more fun note, we had a lovely picnic on Sunday with the ORS and Le Bon Ton at Pittock Mansion. It was great fun and the weather stayed cool for most of the morning. Here are a few pictures. Enjoy!

Well, I am finally starting to sew again. I am going to be making a new riding habit for the lovely Mrs. Cartwright aka Angel. I hope to document my progress. Have a great week and God Bless!

What a beautiful event! I am with Rachel, your blog always makes me smile too! I LOVE the photo of you laying in the shade with your gown all swirling about you, you look just DIVINE in that picture! (but you do in every picture!) it's nice the weather was cool, and it looks like a beautiful location. Love your parasol! (where they called parasols during this period?)
