I recently heard the expression "salt and Light" referenced in regards to a philosophy of life.  What a wonderful use of imagery.  
I think this would be a wonderful theme for a series. Hmmmm

The Year of the Dress

The Year of the Dress

Sometimes a project takes over your life. My daughter married this past summer and asked me to make THE DRESS.
She didn't want any dress, she desired a reproduction design of 17th century with modern leanings. So began our odyssey first into historical costuming books, the quest for fabrics and finally construction and embellishments.
