The Dress

I think I have mentioned the 'Seventy Mile Yardsale' that takes place in my area in late September. It was given that name by the first organizers and it stuck but the yardsale covers hundreds of miles.

 

It is full of treasures and I come home with something awesome every year.  This year one of my favorite items was an antique wedding dress.  The seller had owned a bridal shop and had sold it and retired but was selling her own collection of antique wedding dresses for $10.00 each.  A steal in my opinion. My sister and sister-in-law who came from New Brunswick for the event begged me to try it on. I thought it was too small but wouldn't you know, the darned thing fit perfectly. Other than the dress, I am not in any way ready.

Cripes, Mary...Davey Jones Locker must have been stripped of all pearls to make this fine garment.
Mary MacADNski: I have emphasized the pearls but it is only trim on an otherwise plain dress.
The beading is really lovely. I hope you post a photo of the whole dress... that's in waiting.
Mary MacADNski: I will take one.
Beautiful detail on this dress, I love the photos Mary! I'd love to see it on you!
Mary MacADNski: Everyone says it is suitable for a party so maybe some day.
Worth it just for the photo's, Mary. Thanks for one of my favourite Joni tracks.
Mary MacADNski: It IS my favorite Joni track. I thought it was worth it as a decoration. I have it hanging in a room.

I would love to see the dress on you - lovely pictures!
Mary MacADNski: Maybe someday when I have a helper. The whole back is buttons that have to be done up - 15 buttons.
It sounds as if there are some real bargains to be had Mary, what a huge enterprise. We could do with a similar sort of thing.
Mary MacADNski: It is the most fantastic event! I had a sale here the second year (out of 20) but have attended it every other year instead.

A real sea of pearls
Mary MacADNski: It is actually just the trim on the dress.
Some fine close-ups Mary, those pearls are beautiful.
Mary MacADNski: It is well made so the pearls stay put.

That was quite a bargain, Mary, and for it to fit, too.............
Mary MacADNski: I had no intention of even trying it on as I bought it for a decoration. The sisters talked me into it and offered to do up the 15 back buttons.

So, Mary.. are you getting married? What a bargain you'e found here and what a beauty it is, too, judging by this detail.
Mary MacADNski: Not in this lifetime, Alan. Been there, done that kind of thing.
i am so happy that the dress fitted well Mary... some days you have to spoil yourself...
Penny's Grandma had a saying every time i mentioned that she should find another beau!!
Bit once shied twice!!

i loved Joni today... this is my favorite song by her....petersmile
