Tent Dresses of the 60's


I was browsing fashions of the 60’s and found this very same McCall’s pattern that mother used to make me a tent dress with a front pleat.  She made it for my senior after prom and used rust and white hopsacking polka dot fabric.

Talk about a walk down memory lane.  Wow...

June Garden

IMG 5680

We’ve had so much rain in May that everything has filled in nicely.  The hostas in the background are huge this year and hubby installed underground irrigation for me, so hopefully it will keep things looking good when the dog days of summer arrive.  I have so much shade on the patio these days that I can’t grow herbs, so I just tucked them in among the flowers, along with a cherry tomato plant in the concrete pot.

I bought a new rocker from Grandin Road for the area by the front door.  I love to sit in the morning and watch the horses in the field in front of us, and I’ve had a iron bistro table and chairs sitting there for the past few years.  There is nothing more uncomfortable than those darn hard chairs.  This is comfy and It reminds me of a bentwood rocker I had in the 70’s.  

Just a peek at what things are looking like this month in Heavensville.  The back patio is thriving, too.  I’ll post patio pictures soon.

I remember as a child, mother would take me to her friends houses in the summer to look at their flowers.  Fast forward to 2016 and we just post pictures on the Internet.  

It’s a gorgeous day here, low humidity, temps in the high 70’s, oh if all summer could only be like this.  It’s always fun to see other peoples gardens, just thought you might enjoy this… ~ Jan
