One of the girls in my on line card making group gifted me some words die cuts to use on my cards, and this is one of them. Also awhile back I did a bunch of backgrounds using this stencil and I used them in different ways, this one I just sponged the gold ink through it, so that is why I went with a gold paper for the flower, which I did a little shaping on it to give it a little lift :)

Daniela did a post on civil war dresses and it reminded me of the dresses I took pictures of at the Lincoln Museum we went to, so I thought I would share some pictures I took of the dresses in that time period. If you are into that kind of stuff it is a real interesting read and you can find it HERE on her blog . At the end of all her posts you can read it in English.
The only one I have of Mrs. Lincoln in her dress has me in the shot too, my hubby took this one of me. These were not all her dresses it was others that came to the white house too, but I don't have the information and I can't remember.
I will have to say this last one was my favorite, I just loved the color, lace and the stitching, which is why I got a close up.
After taking the picture I realized I have this same pattern on the shower curtain off my master bedroom, except the flowers on my curtain are pinks and burgundy's, I just thought that was too funny.
I was going to share my Prom dress and wedding dress in this post but I would have to find them and scan them and I knew that wouldn't happen anytime soon so maybe I will share in another post, they were both hooped dresses also, and I made my poor bridesmaids wear them too. Can you tell I just love this style of dress.
Well that is it for me today, we have some rough weather coming this evening they are telling us, high winds and possible tornado's, It is suppose to hit while I will be at the church for Ladies Bible study, which is safer than here since we have it in the classrooms in the basement of the church and here at home I don't have a basement.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and let me know you have,
