All I Want For Christmas...and a Giveaway Link!

So, there are a few things a historical clothing enthusiast always has on her Christmas list.  Books, books, fabric, books, fabric, and fabric top that list.  But I've found one more covetable--the necklaces and earrings at Dames a la Mode.

Seriously--I love that this is historical jewelry that one could wear with an 18th century ballgown or jeans and a white shirt and look equally fabulous:

 And the pearl earrings she creates remind me of these stunners:

Italian or Russian Woman, Pietro Antonio Rotari

Finally, she's doing something I've seen very little of anywhere else--millinery flowers.  You can read about uses for crafted false flowers at this post at The Sign of the Golden Scissors, but I'm really excited to see someone exploring this idea.

So, if you're like me and are salivating over these designs, enter for a chance to win a set at American Duchess.

And cross your fingers that your family listened when you told them what you wanted for Christmas!
