When I post my video diaries I always get comments about my Laura clothes. No, not my period dresses, but my Laura Ingalls Wilder t-shirts that I wear for travel and Laura trips. I thought everyone might enjoy a closer look at them. So enjoy our monthly series where we look at a Laura shirt.
Shirt of the Month
This is my favorite Laura sweatshirt. I got it in Pepin at the greatly lamented Little House Store in Lund, WI. Lund is a couple of miles down the road from the birthplace. You go on the road past the cabin until the road Ts and then turn left. It was run for years as a side job for a teacher from Minnesota. She always had a unique selection of items that were different from the homesite stores. Sadly she died and her family closed the store.
I just love the design on the front. The sage green and the bright pink colors and flower edging make a unique design to compliment the cabin which looks like an old fashioned photograph.
