Yesterday we travelled up to Long Beach for a lovely afternoon of 1870s picnicking at the Banning Residence Museum. The house is absolutely gorgous inside, with so many rare and beautiful antiques. The teenage girls room is just like a room I would love to have for myself- even now- with Deliniator and Harpers Bazaar magazines strewn about, a picturesque little sewing basket, and such amazing period furniture swathed in laces and textiles.
Here’s a few photos from yesterday. My husband, Vanessa, Valerie, and I rode up and shared a yummy lunch on the lawn. We three ladies all made our gowns- Vanessa (in the white with pink accents) made hers in only five days and after working overtime at work! My husband wore all original vintage, with the exception of his shirt, which he found new at a thrift store but it’s perfect!
