This first one really makes me wish I could knit.
What beautiful fabric! I LOVE that coat!
I put this one on here for you Miss Fiona! I absolutely adore these outfits!
Miss Emaline is still on Holiday... But I am sure she will have plenty to say when she returns!
And I am dying to here from you all, and see some pictures... *hint* hint*
In the mean time... I remain your humble servant, Marguerite

I hope you all like the new banner at top... I thought it was such a gorgeous painting I just had to make a banner of it. It was time for an update.
It is such a wonderful time of year, November... It's getting rather chilly out doors and one can't help but want to drink hot cider and sit by a roaring fire with a good book. Or a new dress to work on. =] My Sisters and I are currently getting ready for a Nutcracker Tea and Christmas Boutique to be held by May Farm Cottage. We are all tremendously excited! My sister Aimee and I are preparing a ballet dance for the entertainment of the tea guests and we're all making little ornaments and things to sell at the boutique! I simply cannot wait!
Here's a rather random little picture that is so lovely! I thought I would share it.
And here is a picture of some antique doll clothes that are just beautiful!
I absolutely adore the pink and green bustle dress! Very lovely!

One of the children who was adopted by the Johnson family was Sara Kalei. Before Sara was adopted she had two brothers and one sister. After she was adopted she had six brothers and two sisters.
My family and I (Savannah) came across Sara's family just in time. If we had come three days later, all of the kids would have died.
Sara went back to Harpers Ferry with me, but later fell in love and moved back to Oregon.
Sara loves just about the same things that I do. She also loves to be out in the country. Sara does not get to spend much time with her friends,but when she does, she treasures every moment that she has with them.
Sara mean: Princess and Kalei means: One who serves the King.
Since I told all about Sara, she would like to take this time to tell you what my name means.
Savannah means: Open Plains
Mariee means: Sea of Bitterness
Let me tell you that Savannah is not bitter one bit!
I'm so glad that I can be a part of this Circle of Friends!

Janurary 15th, 1837, Harpers Ferry, West Virgina a new baby girl was born into the Johnson family. Her name was Savannah Mariee. She had four brothers, and one sister, who later died.
When Savannah was five, the Johnson family packed up all their belongings and headed for the Oregon trail. Savannah thought that this adventure was going to take them back home to Harpers Ferry. When they ended in Willamette, Oregon, Savannah promised herself that when she was old enough she would go back to Harpers Ferry.
In 1860, when Savannah was 23, she headed back east. She lived there for two years until the war broke out, and Harpers Ferry was held by the Union. She was forced to leave and while she still had her life she fled to Vicksburg, Mississippi.

What else could a lady (of her time period, no doubt) want?

I would like to introduce... Miss Fiona Grace Harrison, who came from the coast of Ireland at age 16 with her father and her 4 brothers and sisters. In the summer of 1845 a terrible fever broke out among the townspeople of McDoogen. When Fiona's mother and baby sister caught it and died, her father packed them all up and moved them to the states. Joy and peace flourished in their household in Maryland. Fiona now tries hard to step into her mother's shoes in taking care of her sister and brothers. In her spare time she likes... singing, sewing, drawing, gardening and dancing (the highland fling. :-D) and she loves chatting with her good friends!!
Fiona made her dress from her family's tartan before she moved to Maryland. Though poor as they are, she tries to look her best with the silk ribbon (handed down by her great grandmother) tied around her neck.
She is very delighted to join the Circle of Fashionable Friends!
Please pass the tea!!!

One of her greatest interests is Fashion. While frivolity is something she makes Every Effort to avoid, she delights in being fashionable as well as studying the different arts and styles of fashion in all forms. Which is why she, along with her Fashionable cousins, has started this Circle of Fashionable Friends. She hopes that it will prove to be a place to ask questions, share ideas and post photographs of our latest (fashionable) projects. And of course, we must have all the news about the latest linens from Paris!
