A Real Peach


After days of rain and grey clouds, this afternoon afforded the perfect opportunity to sit out on the front steps of my beloved little vintage home and savour the bliss of a fragrant, perfectly ripened local peach.  Fingers crossed the weather holds for the weekend, so that we can head to the apple orchard that is two minutes from here and fill our cold cellar with HONEY CRISP apples.  YUM!!!
Pssst:  The mid-1930s dress in this photo is for sale (convo via Adeline's Attic if interested) (sorry, the vintage tempting continues).

You wear the vintage dresses so well!! Enjoy your apples this weekend. I love when apples become the center of every dessert/breakfast/beverage in the fall.

thanks, all! If I had more occasion to wear this frilly little depression-era darling, I would keep it.

Glad you liked the bare feet, Lauren. Note to self when posing sans shoes in future: don't clench toes. Just realized my little piggies on my right foot look like alien claws here ;)

Love this picture. My grandma always had her porch steps painted red too. You look divine in 30s!

What a fabulous dress! You look beautiful in it.

BaronessVonVintage said...

awww, thanks. Looks like the dress might be leaving me, though. A sale is pending. I hope I won't regret letting it go!

:) i always clench my toes and fist my hands - and I am not talking about photos, but going about my business or being seemingly "relaxed"!!

i love the things you are selling, my favorite is the ginger blouse!

BaronessVonVintage said...

I think I do that too, garofit. Yoga has helped a bit, though.

Glad you like my "wares." I'll be sad to see "Ginger" go, but she just doesn't suit my un-starlet lifestyle!

BaronessVonVintage said...
