What I Wore on Saturday, May 7, 2016

by mary May 11, 2016

On Saturday, May 6, I wore this fabulous flower print dress from the 1930s that I got at Dorothea's Closet Vintage clothing several years ago, & this great hat that I got from the owner of a bed & breakfast a friend & I stayed at last summer in Cedarburg, Wisconsin!

The material covering the buttons on the dress is a bit worn, as is the backing on the belt, but I still love this dress for the print & the way it feels on!

With my dress, I wore 2 pieces of jewelry I made this spring.

I made the necklace out of 1/2 circles that I cut out of vintage lithograph tin & little wooden 1/2 circles & beads that I found at an antique mall just outside Manitowoc, Wisconsin a couple of summers ago.

I made the earrings out of copper discs that I domed & enamelled in a class I took at the Art Center this spring.  I thought they really turned out to be quite fun!

My little photographic friend is Belle, our beagle.  She's almost 7 years old, but thinks she's still a puppy & loves to be photographed!
