Amazing and Marvelous

     In January, I learned that writing doesn't happen if you don't sit down to do it. And....it can be hard work if there are other fun things to distract you (friends and family). Our family has been busy this month, and I'm finally sitting down to share with dear friends.

          I had planned to visit Emily for her birthday in Annapolis during the February President's weekend, assuming she would have a day away from class and that we would be able to catch a museum visit together.  In the fall, I had read about at an exhibit of the work of Isabelle de Borchgrave at the home of Marjorie Merriweather Post, Hillwood Estate Museum, in Washington D.C. Then, I discovered the last day of the exhibit was January 19th! I have been following the work of Borchgrave for twenty years, so I was determined. I braved snow across the state of Virginia to get myself up to see Emily. I'm so glad I did. We had the time of our lives and entertained her dear high school friend and rowing partner, Lizzy. She joined us at the museum, and then we toured her Georgetown together. For a mom, it doesn't get any better. So....really whatever I might write would be pale and irritate you in light of the photos of the costumes. For those of you who love fashion and art, please visit www.isabelledeborchgrave.com and be stunned and amazed!




Zoom in really close and see the lace. This dress was located in the dining room.





They say, "A picture is worth a thousand words." What could I possibly add? This is just a small number of wonderful costume pictures I have. More to come!
