LOOK . . . at Spring!! 

There is nothing as much fun as a long walk on a sunny spring day! 

This year, those sunny days have been few and far between, but  today is one of these rare gems,!
So. . . dressed in their spring finery and cozy sweaters,  Bethany and her big sister Jo are taking full advantage of the day and are off to the park to see what they can see!

The smell of spring is in the air. . .  and the sound of the creek bubbling is a sure sign that the ice is finally gone! 
Heads whipping from side to side, Bethany and Jo are agog at all the beauties of Spring they can see!

. . . .LOOK!.
 . . there in the bushes is Mrs. Mallard on her nest, with Mr. Mallard close by. . . making sure she gets her rest!

 . . .LOOK!
  . . . Mama Robin is looking for worms. . . and Papa found a bit of colored string to build their nest!

. . .  LOOK!.
 . .the daffodils are in full bloom, and so is the forsythia, pussy willow and all the rest!!

No matter where you LOOK. . . the evidence is clear. . .

SPRING is here to  STAY. . . and summer is very NEAR!


Embroidered Chemise
. . . . Peeking beneath her skirt is the cuffs of Bethany's chemise.  It is made of  fine off white cotton and is accented with vintage trim and several sprigs of floral embroidery.    It looks equally as cute standalone as a cool summery outfit, and I am including a satin ribbon tie for the waist, to be used on those occassions!

Softly Pleated Floral Print Skirt
. . . . small pleats radiate out from  each side a central box pleat, creating a soft flare.  The fabric is a cotton flannel floral print, colored in a soft blend of blues, yellows and greens on an off white background..

Embroidered Wool Felt Jacket
 . . . Bethany's wool felt bolero style jacket is an alternate look for this ensemble, ensuring that it can be worn in the warmer weather when an angora sweater is just a bit too warm.  It is the perfect accompaniment to either the chemise alone, or to the skirt and chemise pairing.

Hand Knit and Embroidered Angora Sweater

. . . Completing Bethany's outfit (as there IS still quite a chill in the air this time of year) is a hand knit cardigan sweater made of  very plush and soft yellow angora.  Floral sprays accent the front as well as the back of the sweater, and a tiny working pocket is the perfect place for Bethany to store her treasures!

Hand Knit Angora Hat & Satin Ribbon
. . . A matching hat of yellow angora  is embellished with a band of floral fabric, tri-colored braided ties, and a vintage button, 

. . . An off white satin ribbon is also included for those times when a hat is just a tad too warm!
