Dress up day

Here's my adorable mom and I on our way to the Renaissance Fair. I had invited my travel buddy but she's training for a marathon so she wasn't able to go. My mom was such a good sport to dress up with me. We had so much fun getting all cinched into our corsets and getting dolled up. It seemed fitting that my mom was able to enjoy wearing her creation. She is such a talented seamstress.
We really felt like ladies of the court.
My sweet boy came along too, he's dressed as a peasant farmer. He was totally into his character and even smudged a little dirt on his face and tried to mess up his hair to really look the part. He is so dang cute.
The best part of the faire was the sword fighting and jousting. This was my first time at a renaissance faire, people really get into it from the costumes to the way they speak adding an eth on the end of every word. It was a lot of fun.

Thank you to all who dropped by and left a note for me on my last post. I'm feeling much better now. It's so wonderful to be connected with all you lovely ladies.


  1. Jenny, these dresses are exquisite!! I'm so glad that you two were able to wear them and to a Renaissance Fair! How fun is that?!

  2. Goodness - your mother made those?? Those are amazing!! Those fairs can be a whole lot of fun if you let yourself enjoy them!

  3. Jenny you and your Mom are so cute!

  4. i'm in awe of anyone who can sew creations such as these
    and you both look so nice in them too

    my mum wanted to go to Versailles when we were in Paris, I was heading to Chartres for the labyrinth and the tourist info centre told us it was not on the same train line, so mum said she'd come with me....

    she was livid as the train pulled into the station outside Versailles, about halfway out on the line to Chartres, I told her to just jump off and I'd see her back in Paris, but it was all a bit too scary for her....

    so, does that make you feel better - someone else missed Versailles too :)
