Romantic dresses & beautiful old stuff

Hello dear ones! 

Scouring the internet, I found a page with lovely dresses sewn in retro style of Titanic and  other times long gone. Those ladies who love old times will love this. A wonderful page and I am thrilled I found it! It's called the Wardrobe Shop and there you can look at and buy dresses. My favorite ones I show here, but they're not mine. :) 

I received a beautiful music book from Scotland from an older lady I befriended some time back. The book is from 1870 and in wonderful shape so it will not be used in decorations and will be gracing my shelves instead. Inside the book I found a photograph, lovely because its so old and its been retouched by hand. Although time had blanched the colours a bit, you can clearly see the rouge of the lips and cheeks and since it is a gift, I am so very happy! I also bought two ladies in lovely frame that I adore! :D 

Thank you for your visit, sweet words you all leave and I wish you all a lovely week and plenty of smiles!

Witajcie mili ludzie!
Grzebiac w necie znalazlam strone z przepieknymi sukienkami szyte w stylu retro,tytanika i innych przypominajace czasy dawno przeszle.Duszyczki ktore kochaja stary romantyczny styl beda lubialy.
Super strona i jestem szczesliwa ,ze ja znalazlam.Strona nazywa sie  Wardrobe Shop  i tam mozna poogladac lub kupic sukienki, Najbardziej mi sie spodobaly te ktore zdjecia pozyczylam z tej strony i chce Wam pokazac.
Dostalam piekna muzyczna ksiazke ze Szkocji od starszej pani z ktora sie zaprzyjaznilam,Ksiazeczka z roku 1870 w dobrym stanie wiec ozdobi moje polki nie bedzie uzyta do dekoracji.W ksiazce tej znalazlam fotografie , piekna bo retuszowana. Chodz  czas sprawil ,ze kolory troszeczke wyblakly,widac jeszcze zarozowienia na ustach i policzkach,rowniez i ona zostala mi podarowana przez  wiec i radosc wieksza.Dokupilam sobie jeszcze dwie damy w starej ramce z ktorej rowniez jestem szczesliwa :))
Dziekuje za odwiedzinki i mile slowa ktore zostawiacie,wszystkim zycze pieknego tygodnia i duzo usmiechu!

Wow, those dresses are amazing! I can just picture "Rose" from Titanic wearing them... and the book! Too cool to have. You are very lucky indeed to have that in your collection.

Have a wonderful weekend... it is snowing heavily here. Looks like tomorrow is a "shoveling out" day!

Hello Katherine:
The dresses are so wonderfully romantic, perfect for special occasions when an elegance of times gone by is called for.

Our favourite here is the Scottish Students Song Book. That is an absolute treasure. The binding looks to be beautifully executed and the type is glorious. Yes, that will look perfect gracing a bookshelf!
