My Vintage "Lizzy" dress




My heart skipped a beat when I saw this old dress at the antique market today. This is what I would classify as my "Lizzy" dress. I am a great Jane Austen fan and Elizabeth Bennett is who I strongly identify with in the world of Jane Austen. I plan on wearing this lovely number with a pair of boots! But before I do that , I have to prepare Andrew who finds my " Pride and Prejudice " world a little strange.....

LOL, Suz... I sometimes need to prepare my Good Man too! I've become more 'out there' since he married me but, luckily, I do make him laugh! He came home the other day to see me gardening in K's 'prairie' bonnet... it was just so good for keeping the sun off my face :-)
Thanks for posting on 'Friday's Nature Table'.
Blessings and magic.

I just found your blog too! I have been sitting here for over 2 hours reading so it escapes me where i found you but i am so glad that i did! I loved reading about your homeschooling activities with your children and have only just started my adventure in homeschooling and waldorf.
I hope you post a picture of the dress on you!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, although you came to it at an unusual time, because I've abandoned it for my old blog. However, I am so very glad I found your blog and I am completely jealous of you Lizzy dress. Jane Austen would be pleased.
