Yesterday I told you about the wonderful, historic Victorian house and gardens where I love to go. I told you that I was going back again to help take down a display of vintage wedding gowns. And I told you that I wouldn’t have a chance to take any photos. Was I ever wrong! There were a few minutes here and there for me to snap a few photos before the display was taken down. I really enjoyed helping with the wedding gowns. It gave me a chance to look at the gowns up close – a chance to see details the public doesn’t always see. The underpinnings, the incredible fabrics and trims. . . The hand-stitched details that give the gown shape and form. . . All exquisite and made with care. Perfectly placed stitches and every detail intrigued me. The front of each garment was wonderful, but when I saw the back I knew that the train was my favorite. Imagine the beautiful bride as she strolls down the garden path. Or, as she gracefully comes down the elegant staircase. A display of wedding shoes filled the built-in cupboard in a nearby closet. Of course, every bride needs flowers. I couldn’t help but stop to ‘collect’ a few as I made my way along the path to my car!
