This is the season for Weddings, my girlfriend's son was married Mother's Day weekend, my other girlfriend's daughter will be married this weekend and 100 years ago Lumber Barren Mr. Hume's daughters Constance and Florence Hume had a double Wedding. This is a picture of their home (from the side), restored and taken care of by our local historical society. For this 100th year anniversary they have a celebration going on throughout the summer with displays of their wedding clothes and the home set up to look like it did on the Wedding day where the reception took place.
All the rooms in the house were set up like they would have been for the reception.
Copies of the actual place cards.
Older sister's dress on her bed. Love this quilt.
This is just a few of the many bed rooms in the house.
This potty chair was too cute.
The ending to this Wedding story, one sister died 3 years later and the other got DIVORCED twelve years later, her parents let her if she promised never to marry again! She lived at their home until she died.
I haven't done much dyeing or quilting lately, my elderly father fell and broke his hip. Most of my time right now is being spent with him at the hospital, my mom at her home (she doesn't drive any more), helping with my grand kids, keeping my house up and working! I don't have time to go to the bathroom anymore. Now, I know what the saying "sandwich generation" means! But everyone is happy and trying to help so we'll make it ( I do hope to put in my garden before Fall).
I've always been a sun-lover and even though I don't lay out in the sun any more I still love to have a little color in the summer. I found these two products I hope will give me the "sun" look. The first Jergens Natural Glow for face, it got high recommendations in a study. I've used it for about 4 days, so far no orange color or streaks and my white skin is coming along.
I also found Australian Gold Intensifier made with natural dyes! Black walnut shell extract, annatto, carrot root extract, carrot seed oil, banana fruit extract, aloe leaf juice & tree leaf oil. I'm sure it's not all natural but I'm giving it a try. After 4 days no orange or streaks and my legs and arms aren't bright white.
Both product are not overnight "tans" but seem to be coming slow but sure. I'll let you know next week how they turn out. (neither are oily either)
