Apple Blossom Time: Petal Pink Perfection
FINALLY, another gloriously warm day! The sunbeams coaxed the beautiful blooms of the crabapple tree in my backyard to open and I swear the grass grew green and tall in a matter of minutes! The yard was too lovely to resist; I decided to take the 1920s dress I've recently listed in the Etsy shop for its one and only brief outing with me. I paired it with a pair of vintage t-straps that are 1950s but very 20s style (These are also going into the shop shortly. They fit size 8 US. Convo me via the Etsy shop if you are interested). How could I resist, when it is the exact colour of the apple blossoms? I tried to take some pictures up in the tree house that was built up in the tree by the previous owners of the house. I have blogged before about my serious desire to transform this little structure into a Krazy Kat Klub style flapper hideaway. Well, I discovered today that it is going to take a massive overhaul before any gin swilling or charleston dancing can occur in it, as it has dry rot and is generally unstable. Still, it was lovely to be up right in the bows of the blooming branches with sparrows singing and bees droning right in my ear.
