Earlier this month we had a lovely soiree, which included clothing that has been out of fashion for at least 100 years*, a dip in the pond, and stories around the campfire.
*they included that lovely bit in the invitation, which gave me much amusement!
One afternoon, while lounging on the grass doing handwork, we happened on the idea of imitating a painting. In essence, finding a painting with four girls in it, making the dresses, and posing for a replica photograph. I have seen it done very well before with Portrait of the Empress Eugenie Surrounded by her Maids of Honor

Lavender's Green also did one, The Croquet Game, by Winslow Homer.

So, the T.S.S. and I are on the lookout for paintings with four girls. The only one I have found so far is below. It is a little dull, with three matching dresses and one black one, but Jeb could even have a part in it!
Oh the fun we will have!
