Date day is not dependent on location. Nelson and The Style Crone spent the day in our peaceful home and were honored with visits from sweet and generous friends. There’s been a lot of that going around lately! In celebration of friendship, The SC hit the vintage Asian rack once again. I could keep going for days with this magical motif, as I have only touched the surface. Years of estate sales provided many extraordinary finds in this category and the delicate white silk kimono with intricately embroidered birds and flowers was no exception. At separate estate sales years apart from one another I found this kimono and a white silk scarf with the exact same embroidered birds, which the brisk April wind caught and tossed across my shoulder in front of the flowering spring snow crabapple tree, making me laugh and toss my head forward with the vintage black ‘tower’ hat facing toward Nelson in a spontaneous nod. Fun and frivolity in front of the flowering tree! For free!
