It was a lovely warm Monday morning in May, 2015. Our Memorial Day parade went off as planned.
My grand daughter had been marching with me, in the parade ever since she was 7 years old. She is now 11.
We are reminding the young onlookers about the upcoming American Girl Doll Tea Party next weekend, on May 30 and the 31.
Nice to meet you, Estelle (virtually). I was so happy to find your blog and site! I am ALSO a former Harlem School of Dance student. I've worked professionally on stage and I am now a playwright and screenwriter...who happens to LOVE Victorian and Edwardian dress and history (see my blog http://victoriaedward.blogspot.com/2014/02/in-my-own-image.html) I have been looking for balls, dances, picnics, teas and events to wear my Edwradian lawn dress, and the new Worth reproduction bustle gown that I just purchased. Also interested in period dance events and classes that aren't too far from NYC. California seems to be more on the ball when it comes to period events.
