We don't dress like this much any more. I mean really dress up. It is a long list. The silk stockings, heals all polished and shiny, fancy dresses, jewelry, brooches and silk hankies, hats, gloves, purses, and then there is that fox. Yes my Great Grandmother has a fox draped around her neck. My Grandmother Arnold her daughter had one too. It fascinated me as a little girl. Maybe it was this same one.
It makes me happy looking at this picture that captures these two sisters in a moment of joy and sharing. This is a celebration of life. Two sisters caught in a gentle moment between two world wars.
There is a lot to think about when a picture like this comes into view.
