.....preparing for one! :-D
It's rather exciting! The ball is later this week and we're trying to make sure all of our wardrobes and accessories are in order! We had ordered some hoop skirts for Mom and me from e-bay and have already received those and the gloves for my dad and older brother should be on there way. :-) Mom has been busy sewing on the civil war uniform for my older brother and it is really starting to take shape!
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I've been
looking at hairstyles on the internet and on the
left is a picture of one I attempted to duplicate today. :-)
I also thought about trying one with part of the hair pulled up with lots of curls cascading down or maybe something like the the ladies hair in the next picture....hmmm.....we'll have to see what we can come up with. :-)
We also recently watched the movie North & South, which wasn't about the Civil War, but I believe it was set around that time period. It was a pretty interesting movie! :-)
And lastly, here is a link to a you tube video I watched and was amazed at how many people were dancing and how straight the dancer's kept their lines. The place in which they dance is also beautiful. Enjoy!
