The Holly and The Ivy~Extremely Late!

Before the end of 2012, I took photographs with the theme of "The Holly and The Ivy" based on an Old English Song now sung by the talented group of female singers, The Medieval Baebes.  I was inspired by the lyrics to this song referring to the Holly Berry and the Ivy Leaf which both bloom in the cold and white of Winter.   I was so lucky to find a forest green silk velvet gown that was handmade as a Wedding gown by a woman in the 1930s.  I also added a gorgeous necklace and pair of earrings made by the talented Christina Allen Page of Sihaya Designs Jewelry



The last photograph is available still in my
Hopefully, I will be adding new Spring themed photographs!
I hope all is well with you folks in Blogland!
Best!

What wonderful creations! And what a lucky find the green velevt dress was, it is absolutely perfect here. Love the ethereal otherworldy quality. Sublime! Spring will come but for now, in this English fog these images are uplifting and somehow comforting.
