We had a tea for my niece, Thina,
at Leduc's Dr. Woods Museum, yesterday.
The museum's current feature is
Bridal Fashions Throughout the Years.
Isn't it unusual to have both
a wedding gown and bridesmaid's dress (this dress was amazing!)
still in perfect shape from 1959?
What a treat.
I loved this gown.
Intricately beautiful headpiece.
I couldn't help but wonder if there is fruitcake under the sepia icing.
I think these shoes would have fit me ~ they were so cute ~ I really wanted to try them on!
Simple, crisp, pretty.
This gown had an exquisite design on the dress ~
unfortunately it doesn't show up in the photo.
These two gowns were some of the oldest in the show
from the early1900s.
Discussing wedding fashions
Thina with a bottle of Mrs. Stewart's Bluing.
Her maiden name was Stewart, so she had to have her photo taken
with the likeness of her mother :)
Another pretty headpiece
What a splendid way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
