Let me introduce myself...

Hey y'all, this year I made a trip to the enchanted woodlands of New Jersey...

I brushed up on my sewing skills and was introduced to darning. I participated in discussions of a fabric nature. We spoke of patterns, colors and textures. Ooo, can you hear that crunchy, swishy sound of the silks and the hum of Singer? Ahhh...

While there, between tea (Earl Grey with cream, of course) and scones, I was bestowed the great honor by The Fairy Skirt Mother  (pictured here), of forever to be the World's first ever Herberdasherist!

Let me define this. The Herberdasherist is she who collects finery and accessories: treasured trinkets, attractive additions, darling discoveries, and versatile extras because she believes dressing is fun. That's me!
