My Folk Art Dress


Tomorrow begins another new month...August!  Can you believe how fast July has flown by?  Time seems to move faster and faster, I guess, as we age.  Bummer. But, I am looking forward to school starting later in the month and getting back to normal routine.  I'm also looking forward to designing my August dress.  The Artist Theme for August is Pointillism .  I'm very excited about that!  July's Theme has been Folk Art.  Folk Art is fun and encompasses many different mediums.  I based my July dress on matching outfits my mother made my sister and me when we were kids.  I remember wearing my Little House on the Prairie dress on that Christmas shown in the photo.  That's me on the right (brown hair).  My Folk Art Dress is blue and has that patchwork, quilt look to it that reminds me of my Laura Ingalls dress.  Sidenote:  My sister and I played Little House and, of course, I played Laura and she was Mary as she had blonde hair and older.  

So, here is my July Folk Art Dress:






The link to post your August dresses will be up at Midnight (Central Standard Time) tonight!

Tootles!

Hey Girl! Love, love, love that photo of you and your sister in your "Little House" dresses! My grandmother and great aunt used to make my sister, cousin and me dresses that all matched...but I don't think we were lucky enough to have LHOTP dresses! Too cute!

And I LOVE your Folk Art dress. Its wonderful, Angi. I'm also really looking forward to the August dresses....Pointillism....love it!

XOXO,

Cyndi

hi angela! Love your little dress, so cute. My Mum watched Little House religiously,( she fancied Michael Landon, she loved the programme where he was an Angel too,) I read Little house books and longed to live in a wagon on a Pairie, and then a little wooden house, I'd play it by myself when taking my dogs for a walk up the long grass meadow!! so your post really brought back sweet memories for me!! haha!
