Natalie from Kentucky is another wonderful friend met via the interweb. Her blog is A Frolic Through Time where she shares her love of 18th Century clothing, including an incredible patience with embroidery techniques of the time. And she is a Mom with twin boys who keep her busy.
Anyway I won a giveaway on her blog in early June, and it was so exciting to receive a parcel of things from Natalie in Kentucky. The things are wonderful, but what I find the most wonderful is touching them and knowing that Natalie had chosen them, used them, lived with them, then sent them. It's a bit like that frisson of excitement one gets seeing a dress from a Janet Arnold book - that association of the bigger picture with what is in front of one. :)
Thank you Natalie - all these things will go into my stash, and will come out, inevitably, given the number of friends I have who are pregnant, bound to get pregnant, and subsequently have babies who will grow into children! :)
But they're not getting the flower buttons, those are my precioussss!
