We have a bird of paradise plant (strilizia) and yesterday I cut one to take indoors. They are exotic plants so I hope you enjoy the photo.
This dress-more a gown than a dress-was one of those that was being photographed at Cavalcade of fashion yesterday. Beautiful beadwork. I went there to help catalogue some swimsuits from the 1920's to the 1960's.
Off to the craft room now:)
