Its raining. Its cold. But the cycle of feeding and sleeping was broken by the arrival of SHERRY! Okay, Sherry is the nick-name I have given the dressmaker’s dummy I ordered on eBay after many months of lusting. Just thought it was a fun name given my love of vintage and the quintessentially forties and fifties feel of many of the patterns I love. Unlikely however that this one will do a Kim Cattrall as in the 80s movie mannequin (does anyone remember that)?
My bones ache and I pray I am not coming down with something. But in any event, the peonies my mother brought over at dinner last night are cheerful and too pretty not to photograph.
Father comforts son in the background… love the domesticity.
