For the Record
My husband, Derrick, mentioned to me the other day that my suggestion to people that he's "not into vintage" is not exactly true. His argument is that he has yet to find vintage from the 30s and 40s that will fit him (he's quite tall). We'll see about that. Once my wardrobe is sufficiently complete, I'm going to start working on him ;). Anyway, if you consider the fact that he has had INFINITE patience when it has come to driving me to every vintage event and Anne location, not to mention that he has been the one who snapped many of the pics from these excursions, I think it is only fair to state, for the record, that my chap really IS into vintage....even if he doesn't wear it much. D's birthday is coming up in just over a week, so as thanks and as part of his birthday boy wishes, I am posting some pics from HIS vintage day back in 2008, when he and his golf-addicted friends were over in Scotland for a once-in-a-lifetime golf holiday (I was working and have been to Scotland twice, each time for a month-long holiday, so didn't go on this trip). I'm trying to convince him to start a blog, but it's not happening, so here's his 15 minutes of fame on my blog ;) The location in the pics is the Hill of Tarvit, a mansionhouse and garden with accompanying golf course from the 20s or 30s(?), which I recall hearing was restored to its former glory after lying in disrepair since WWII (just looked at the website and it seems Hill of Tarvit is experiencing financial troubles again and has to close?! In the mean-time, our friend Bill is the chap swinging the club on the hickory course website!!!) This trio knew they were to be the first to golf the course on its opening day, so they planned ahead and brought vintage style "plus fours" for the occasion. Yes, they played their whole round with vintage hickory shaft clubs and leather balls. Happy birthday, Monsieur Le Baron. ...and thank you for humouring all my silly, outlandish, vintage-obsessed whims!
