Pittock Mansion Picnic

This afternoon we went to the Oregon Regency Society’s annual Pittock Mansion Picnic. We had a lovely afternoon of eating, card playing, chatting, and strolling the beautiful grounds and interiors of the mansion. Here are a few pics, enjoy!

The Cartwright’s, in their new creations. Yes, this is part of the reason I have not been online much. The Captain has a second frock coat, that I do not have pictures of yet.

Wow, you finished your robe so fast! And it looks marvelous! You and your group always look just plain perfect.

Glorious!! Your new overrobe looks fantastic, love that colour on you Lauren! I am very taken with the prints that your companions are wearing, being a maximalist, and wondered if you could share their provenance? :)

The composition on the first picture is stellar. Aaron's work, I imagine? That picture of Mrs. Cartwright camouflaged into the wallpaper is HILARIOUS!

Lauren said...

Yes, that is Aaron's work :D
