grey servant dress, round neck with french trim






Yesterday I sewed for the first time in months. I think I was massively burned out.

I'm so happy Melissa finally shared her seven-month secret! Melissa, you remind me of a Vermeer woman, gracefully and calmly keeping your own quiet counsel. I wish I was more like that.

I loved reading the comments from the last post - especially the one from miss anonymous, who said "grounded children grow up to be grounded adults, who are able to do much to help this hurting world."

Here's to a much slower 2009.

I think you got it right--slower and more intentional is BETTER. We are all too rushed.

Here's to stopping and smelling the roses!

And bonus--that dress is fab!

That dress is wonderful, if only I had one in my size... somehow I think it would look better on her though, ha.

I was seduced by the "slow" movement this year too. Why don't we all slow down and smell the roses? What's the rush?

Lynne, your follow up in response to my comment on grounded children was just the push I've been waiting for. I am a techno dinosaur, but you have given me the courage to start a blog. It may take me a bit to get it together, but I think it's all part of finding my voice. I am filled with gratitude, Lynne. KarenLR

I love that you did the photos in black and white too! Lovely dress, lovely curls!! And you're absolutely right! I didn't say "Congratulations" to Melissa because i thought maybe I missed something earlier and would look silly only now saying it! Please give her my well wishes... I'm always SO excited for new babies!!! (I'm secretly very jealous!!!). Much love to you both!!

I LOVE this dress! Now you have to create an amazingly cool creation for those of us that have boys...maybe cute little french trousers with piping down the side? A boy equivalent to the wanderings coat?

Paige said...
