I happen to love this dress so much that I wish I had seven of them in different colors, one to wear each day of the week. It’s so cute and comfortable I wear it all day long.
When I wore this dress to church one day, a lady came up to me and told me that she used to be a teacher in Australia, and that many years ago, the schoolgirls down under would wear something like this every day to school.
I love collecting old book. Pictured here we have:
“Mrs. Browning’s Poems”, by Elizabeth Barrett Browning. There isn’t a date printed, but it was first published in the mid-eighteen hundreds.
“The Clue in the Crumbling Wall”, by Carolyn Keene, 1945.
“Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”, by Lewis Carroll. It was first published in 1865 but since this copy also includes “Through the Looking Glass” which was written in 1871, it would have to have been printed after that date.
