-Holly may be able to come down and visit for a few days next week; there are so many things that we’ve been talking about doing, we seriously need to write up a list and prioritize our various projects!
-Because I had to skip Costume College this year (BOO!), I'm going to re-think my costume calendar for the rest of the year. I’m hoping to be able to make it out to Dickens Fair this year. It’s been on my ‘wish list’ for a long time, so I think this year may be the year! I have a couple of gowns in my closet that would work, but really, any excuse for a new dress, right?
|From Augusta Auctions - it appears the original image is no longer available online.|
|Also from Augusta Auctions (I believe!) - also no longer available online.|

The Bowes Museum
|A third gown from Augusta Auctions (I think) which appears to no longer be available online.|
-I’ve more or less decided on doing a ‘fancy’ brocade gown for the ACC; now I just need to settle on a fabric and exact design details. More details to follow.
-I really want to make sure that another costumed tea happens before the end of the year, more on this to follow as well!
