Our Lumber Gala

I love to dance even when I’m trapped in a hoopskirt so immense that I could be mistaken for a ruffly blimp. That’s one of the many reasons why Jason and I have happily become repeat performers at the Festival of Trees with our old-school pals.

There were probably about 90 yards of fabric stretched across all these dresses.

The Festival of Trees is a charity event that supports Primary Children’s Hospital. The Old Glory Vintage Dancers have twirled there annually for years. Jason and I have been involved in these performances for the last three years.

Although I’d have fun swaying with a toaster, people do add to the innate pleasures of prancing. We’ve made some great dancing buddies and laughing with them during rehearsals is as enjoyable as the turns of a reel.

Although I make most of my historic attire, I borrowed this elaborate gown from our dance leader.

I’m grateful for all the fine music, lively steps, excellent friends, and enormous dresses in my life.
