Last night I performed stories at Palm Key on Knowles Island. Palm Key is an amazing place surrounded by natural beauty and wildlife with lovely cottages that can be rented. Palmetto fronds dangle above the edge of the pond.
Views of the pond at sunset.
Palmetto trees outside of the building where the storytelling performance was held.
When performing I always set up with period specific items.
Antique photos, eye glass case, and card holder sit atop an antique leather hat case softened with bits of lace.
This is dress number 10 made by my angel of a friend, Christine. The fabric for the bodice came from a velvet curtain panel while the skirt fabric came from a shower curtain. This is what I call my version of the Scarlett O'Hara curtain dress:)
