Feeling Thankful, Too





Momma was inspired (Inspired, I say!) to make a Thanksgiving outfit this week.


The first turned out so well it sold immediately!


 "Feeling Thankful, Too" is cobbled (gobbled?) together with scraps left over from the first Thanksgiving dress - making it even more asymmetrical!


"Feeling Thankful, Too" has an attached pocket/purse fastened with a mini copper safety pin that contains a wee holiday surprise! Three working buttons fasten the bodice back. It comes with a coordinating (exposed) Flint corn (AKA Indian corn or calico corn) fabric-trimmed petticoat, and a copper pumpkin necklace.

This week in the Civil War: Nov. 16, 1864


Sherman's March to the Sea
Union forces had occupied Atlanta for more than two months when Union Gen. William Sherman departed in mid-November 1864 on the so-called March to the Sea — a campaign to capture Savannah, Georgia. As Sherman's federal forces advanced, the troops destroyed buildings, businesses, and property in their path, a "scorched earth" policy that angered and also demoralized Southerners. Sherman split his roughly 60,000 troops into two wings and the two groups kept miles apart as they crossed Georgia, raiding farms and plantations and occasionally clashing with Confederates along the route.

Bid Item #11
Birdie Wright
The "Seussian"
Thalia said she would do the modeling for this because she loves Dr. Seuss. This sweet Dr. Seuss fabric shows a great many of the characters from the beloved books. Even the Grinch shares his smiling face and little Cindy Lou may be hiding somewhere. I paired the skirt with a pink print blouse and pink sandals. The cute hat is a headband with embroidered hat and ears from "The Cat in the Hat". I had purchased the headband for this outfit as well as the sandals and writing accessories. The little tablets look like a couple of the well loved books from Dr. Seuss. All seams are finished and there is velcro to close the blouse and skirt. Doll not included.
