This delicate net and lace dress came from The Rose Arbor,
the booth of Vicki Potter on Butternut Hill
at the Madison Bouckville markets this year.
She thinks it is from the 1930's.
I wonder who it was that wore this lovely feminine creation?
Vicki tells me that it came from an estate north of Syracuse, N.Y.
It was the home of a famous doll maker and at the same time,
Vicki bought many beautiful laces, buttons and fabrics.
It would fit a tall, slim girl like my daughter Kate.
She would love it, I am sure.
For now, it hangs in the upstairs bedroom window at the lake...
It has been pouring rain here all day....
...a good day for baking, reading and napping.
Hope your Labor Day holiday has been restful...
...and if not...hope it was fun! :)
