Let autumn begin: steam train travelling in style


Because today marks the actual beginning of autumn an autumn style post.  This will be more of a picture post with not too much text.

So the event it is about event actually took place before I went on vacation. But the weather was so autumnal it felt like autumn to me and I dressed for it in the warm colors suitable to that season.

I went to a historic steamtrain day withy friends from Club Interbellum.


Here's what I wore:
1940's burgundy red novelty print dress
Burgundy red felt hat, late 1930's, with a label from De Bijenkorf al large Dutch department store that still exists
Hand knit (by my mother) cardigan after a 1935 pattern, more on that in a next post
1930's burgundy shoes
1920's/30's leather purse
Carpet bag

Myrtle had just returned from France so we had soo much to talk about!

 I was in a rather clownish mood, so these pictures are the least embarrasing ones ;)



And then there was this caroussel.....Oh yes, I really had to eventough the horses were way to tiny for me! And it kept going round and round.

And then this group photo attempt....Herman who made the pictures wanted it a little less 'people standing in a row' and encouraged us to be spontaneous. So, silly as I was that day, I jumped in front of the row of people. Well on the resulting photograph it is a least visible that I was actually wearing (fully fashioned) stockings...oops! But funny.


On the next pic I looke like Mary Poppins just landed ;)

And that concludes the first autumn event of the year!
 
Below a pictures that could be seen as a prequel to the next blogpost. It was taken on my mothers 40 year work anniversary where I served coffee and food on trays. Wearing: a white apron and thats the clue for things to come.
