Wednesday Stamper - Dress

Do you ever leaf through your vintage photos and actually study the dresses that the women are wearning in them? Many are so fancy with lace and full skirts. The bodices are cinched in giving the women such a form fitting look. I often wonder how uncomfortable they must have been. Was it difficult to breathe? How did they survive the heat? "Juliet" (my name for her) is one of my adopted relatives from my vintage photo collection and she has a particularly distinct dress. I thought she looked like a woman who loved to decorate her home so I created a story for her in this round robin journal page. This is my entry for the Wednesday Stamper challenge this week.

I love the colors you used in this - beautiful as always! I really enjoyed your library comments too.

I miss the old days of library cards/pockets. I grew up in a small town and it was always fun to be able to see who had read the book I was checking out.
