I'm not too crazy about patchwork. Perhaps a great quilt, but that about it.Mary
Well; boy do I have something to say about THIS!!(our daughter started moving in today to her house here; we leave for Boston at the crack of dawn to visit another daughter and our grandson at Andover)I HAD to comment!I think I was in 8th grade? 1960?? When I saw Gloria Vanderbilts amazing creations.......I became an "instant fan" ; and have remained one! This is one of the great beauties of the "internet"!!This is a creative woman who has been a beacon and an idol my entire life! I remember every picture (thank the Lord for the 'photographic memory')and every view of everywhere she has lived!She is an absolutely gorgeous.......(looking..omigod) person in every way!Her friendships with Carol Marcus Matthau; and the divine young wife of Charlie Chaplin...."Oona O'Neill..." is the greatest story I have ever read about female friendship! EVER!!You must get the book about these three friends!She is an astonishing, creative, gifted woman.....And on she goes!What an inspiration! I know not to "feel old" (the kiss of death) She is 90 or something!If only I could resurrect that patchwork tartan long skirt I wore for our Christmas picture in 1972!!what a wonderful post! This is the best thing about blogging!!XXOOps on my way to Boston tomorrow! seeing grandsons at school.....but my other excitement is "Beauport" !!Have you been there?Seriously.....I thought I would die there of a heart-attack!Pennyps with John and Sallie Kelsey; and also Lena of www.zoedesign.com who did the mural in our powder room.....she lives right there; and has never been!What fun!
Love Jasper's dress and GV!!!!! She is such an inspiration, always! ox
