Fashion Plate - 1836
My very first vintage fashion plate arrived. It is from 1836 and I love it. It came all the way from France and is in fact in French, so original. The only issue that I have is that the idiot who sold it to me is a smoker. So of course the thing reeks of cigarette smoke; which is for a start just plain gross and I have to air it out before I can store it. I am thinking that I will get it framed so that I can add it to the sewing room. Seems a rather appropriate place for it to go. I mean at the moment it will be my mothers’ sewing room, but once I get my own place it will definitely be headed for the sewing room. Along with the other items I have stashed away.
