Miss Lucy Louise Snodgrass, great-great-great granddaughter of the illustrious General Sherman J. P. Smut, who, as the story goes, single handed rode across the county on his trusty stallion 'Takmystnd',
announcing the arrival of the scallywag pirates when they landed on the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.
Miss Lucy Louise is resident of Whackahatchee.
Most days you can find her walking the banks of the Whackahatchee River looking for the return of her fiancee, Commodore Winfield Julius Caddell, known for his sailing exploits around Madagascar!
Oh the pearls, pearls and more pearls... Commodore Caddell always brings home to his lovely bride-to-be, strings and strings of pearls! Miss Lucy Louise never leaves home without at least five strands of the lovely gemstones!
Today she is dressed in vintage clothing...
with lovely lace...
and flowers for the lovely lady...
Miss Lucy Louise Snodgrass will wait for her dance card to be filled by none other than her handsome Commodore!
And then they will dance the night away at the ball hosted by..."
The pearls that Miss Lucy Louise is wearing came from estate and consignment sales. That's one of my weaknesses...love the jewelry!!
Allow me to share more jewelry that I thought about using on the dress form but didn't!
(I know, silly me!)
This set was given to me by my aunt's best friend. I was so thrilled to receive it even though at the time I really had no idea what it was!
My Eisenberg Jewelry has appreciated in value! I wear the brooch often. I've worn it on sweaters, scarves, hats, shirts...anywhere I can add a little bling! I plan to pass the set down to the next fashion queen!!
"Eisenberg originally produced clothing at its beginning in 1914. Eisenberg began to market its jewelry around 1930. In 1958, Eisenberg began production of jewelry exclusively and abandoned its clothing line. In 1977, Eisenberg became a part of Berns-Friedman. Early Eisenberg jewelry was not marked. From late 1943 unitl mid 1948, the company used sterling silver. Sterling pieces are highly collectible, especially the figurals."
So today I'm sharing my dress form, vintage clothing, pearls and rhinestones! Here are the parties I am attending...I hope you will visit with these wonderful folks too!!
