I hope you are having a lovely weekend and enjoy your Sunday. We had a nice day yesterday just wondering around our neighborhood and the surrounding areas finding new sites and spending time together. One of those sites is a place we have wanted to visit for a while. So we went and I must say it was very beautiful. It is the Grotto here in Portland. It’s basically a Catholic chapel and park with stations of the cross and a very impressive alter. It reminded me of a place I visited in Malta, although this was much greener and lush.
It was a sunny day yesterday and we could clearly see Mt. Hood, which is a rarity around here.
Yours truly. Further proof that I do indeed where modern clothing in real life. Although, since I left work, I have been rarely wearing makeup. It’s quite freeing and comfortable, actually. Aaron caught me off guard with this pic, but I decided I would post it anyway. It’s the real me.
Finally, I procured these lovely Williamsburg reproductions from a good friend, who also happens to be an antique dealer. I am so pleased with them and the craftsmanship that went into creating them. They are quite a work of art and they are more pieces in the puzzle of my quest to create more of the 18th Century in my home.
They’re quite tall!
Please excuse the chords. Unfortunately we can’t seem to find a good way to hide them, but I’m working on that.
I will be starting on a custom 18th Century suit for a client very soon. So, I should have some sewing posts again shortly. I also plan to finish Aaron’s coat in the next few days. I have sleeves and button holes left and then it will be finished. Well, I hope you have a lovely week.
