"Keeping Mason in Stitches since 1865",


Victorian Tailor is doing a float for our 
local Mason Historical Society this year for 
the 4th of July Parade.
I have recruited wonderful relatives and girlfriends to 
help with the float this special year,
The Sesquicentennial of Mason Michigan! 




Found a trailer, thanks to cousin J.J.,



Gathering supplies, 


Making cotton calico fringe for the Float,


Made the "Victorian Tailor Girls" some special Bloomers
for the Celebration!


Try on 




To dress Civil War or contemporary Victorian Tailor?

We will actually put the float together on the 
4th of July, so will have pictures later
that day I hope!

Please come back and visit to see more!
Meanwhile hope your 4th of July plans are 
full of Family and Fun!

Mis-Matched Shabby Bohemian Birthday


My oldest of four children's birthday, Elizabeth  was on Fathers Day,
It has fallen on Fathers Day many times over the years,



So, I had a "Bohemian Birthday Brunch" on the front porch for her and 
son Daniel, What a Beautiful Day!!! Sunny, warm, not humid! 


I love antique mis-matched dishes! I have only a few of this and that,
I use these everyday, why not? better then in a box somewhere, 




Flowers from the Garden, 



Black, blue, pink, can you imagine what the set of these would have
looked like in the day? 



Pale pink border, 



Sweet little flowers, mis-matched silver utensils, 




Found these wicker hanging baskets from one of the vendors at the 
antique mall my shop is in, 5.00 each!!! Perfect for the wall of my porch!

So blessed to spend such a glorious  morning with my beautiful daughter, and her son,
on her birthday! 
Thank you Elizabeth, love you,
 Mom!
