Our outing to Fort Frederick Market Fair yesterday was lovely! the weather was warm (mid 90s) but the humidity was way low and there was a lovely breeze.
I managed to get my new ruffled jacket into wearable condition (and get a decent night's sleep the night before!) so I was a cool as can be expected. CC27 will see a matching petticoat and some more 1790s accessories. My blue stays (still sans proper binding) had their first wearing out and they are perfect! Very comfy and flattering, even with the 2.5 hour drive. *throws confetti*sadievale
made the trek up to Big Pool with me. We got there about 11am and after wondering around for 10 mins or so we found isabelladangelo
at The Smiling Fox Forge. That turned out to be a good thing since past_blue
's vintage shoes started to disintegrate as we walked in and Smiling Fox had Fugawee Martha shoes
in her size - yay!
After a little shopping, chatting and general drooling at The Silly Sisters we stopped at our favorite feather merchant and then went to have lunch. We were still sitting and chatting when tattycat
and her friends came up to say hi. After we parted ways with tattycat
the five of us pretty much spent the rest of the day shopping, browsing and having a good time. A highlight was our lemonade break sitting under some shady trees.
We left about 3:30. I came home a little hot (I love air conditioning yes I do!), very poor, but not sunburned yay! It was a nice break in the sewing/general madness that is my life but now onto the final stretch of CC27 prep!
