Today I got to wear my 1912 Violet dress for the first time in public!! The Bishops House hosted their last Table Rock Trio concert and We Wear History was asked to come again and lend our Old Fashioned charm to the event! We of course were delighted to attend in our finery!
When the concert was over, I was outside the house and this couple who had been walking the trails behind the House came by with a Grayhound and this fabulous Russian Borzoi. I think I sucked all the air out of the surrounding area and practically screeched, "May I please have my picture taken with that magnificent animal!?" The lady handling the Borzoi said, "I was just going to ask you if you would take a picture with my dog!" Too fun! So, after Broche (the French word for brooch) got acquainted with me and my enormous hat ("I think she is afraid of your hat."), we had our picture taken! Broche was so beautiful and charming, then her owner said that they were bred by the Czars of Russia in the Victorian Era! PERFECT!!!! Isn't she grand?

|I think we looked pretty good together!|
|This dog was enormous!|
|Marilyn, Me and Mom! We had such a great time!|
|Of course I had to sneak a silly picture into the lot...I don't know how to be serious!!!|
Today was a wonderful day and I am sad to see the end of the concerts from The Table Rock Trio...but am excited to see what the future holds with our partnership with The Bishops House!
