T-Shirt of the Month September 2017

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 new monthly series where we look at a Laura shirt each month.

Clothes are one of those things that I once kept as a firm line not to cross as part of my efforts to restrict my Laura collection to a reasonable size. That totally failed when I discovered how great it is to have a Laura t-shirt on when traveling. It really makes it feel like your trip has already started once you get in your car.

This time’s shirt is part of a limited edition from the Laura Ingalls Wilder Memorial Society in De Smet, South Dakota. This shirt is just offered this year as part of the celebration of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s 150th birthday. There was also a special limited edition shirt at Walnut Grove this year. These are always a fun addition to a t-shirt collection.
