Color in the Garden

Man socks in Lorna's Laces Black Purl - one skein per and nope, I didn't check the dye lots.

Grey and purple make for a pretty colorway. It's one I saw in the gardens of Paine Art Center in Oshkosh, Wisconsin yesterday.

We were there to see Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
which Bonnie Marie blogged about, http://www.chicknits.com/rambles/.

The exhibit is at the Paine through September. If you're anywhere near Oshkosh, go. The costumes are displayed in small groups of three or four in period rooms. Our favorite? We had two: the hand-painted dress worn by Melanie Griffith in "Shining Through" and the winged ballgown worn by Drew Barrymore in "Ever After". And can I just say that Elizabeth Taylor's 1980s-era waist was tiny?

Unfortunately for us but fortunately for the preservation of the costumes, no photography was allowed. Instead, let's stroll about the flowers outside, shall we?

Yes, those are rollerskates on the carhop! Nothing goes with a morning of film fashion and flowers like a cheeseburger and a rootbeer.
