I’ve been telling you about the new program that I’m debuting at Laura Days in Pepin this weekend. I’ve been working on getting the final touches pulled together. I have a couple of test shots to share with you. This is one of my great-grandmother’s aprons. I’m going to be graying my hair and accessorizing differently, but I think this dress will work. I’ve been working on a different 1930s dress since my normal one is a little formal to be found in the kitchen. The second shot shows some of the props I’m going to be bringing along for the program. That is a genuine oilcloth tablecloth and my grandmother’s egg scale.
