trouvée: the three graces

No inscription, no date. Barbara's beautiful women in white made me think to dig this snapshot out. There is just something about summer fabrics and soft breezes. Simply looking at this photograph makes me feel cooler. {click image to view larger}

Lots of goodies this week:

* New York is on the half-shell
* Stéphanie de Rougé is On your Roof (via Simply Photo)
* George Washington's garden is revamped
* and Mary Boykin Chestnut's Diary is reprinted (to mark the 150th anniversary of the beginning of the Civil War)

Here's wishing you a wonderful weekend. . . xo.

I imagine them to be sisters sharing words about their next covert operation.
What a glorious image. You are so right, the dresses, the hats all look so wonderfully breezy and gay.

Marvelous, lovely photograph, so evocative of summer. I also liked your links, the NY oyster piece and the revamping of Mount Vernon's garden, in particular. Thanks!

Love your straw-hatted take on the three graces and the wonderful update about Mount Vernon.
