I was just given a series of Godey's 1870 Fashion Plates from a friend. She and her sister had ordered them through the McCall's pattern company as teenagers, I refrained from asking the year - she has grown children. The Fahsion Plates recently resurfaced as she was cleaning and reorganizing, and she immediately thought of me, and that I would enjoy them. I love them and have plans to purchase better frames, the ones they were in did a good job of protecting them, but they're falling apart. Now I just need to decide where to hang them, my sewing room (short of wall space but I could make room), or my guest room (definitely history inspired but again a little short on wall space)? I am leaning toward hanging them in the guest room as I am in there frequently, and then any guests could enjoy them as well.
I am a thirty-something stay-at-home pastor' wife that loves to read, garden, quilt, and knit. Not necessarily in that order though. I thought I'd start this blog to help friends and family keep up with what I am doing now.
