Fashion and Frank Lloyd Wright
A couple of years ago, I had the privilege to stay in a home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. While there, I participated in a vintage photoshoot which provided great pictoral memories of both the old timey fashions and the incredible home. Apparently, I talked about it often and with such fondness that my husband took note of how much I truly enjoyed my time there. My Christmas and Anniversary gift were to be a stay at another Frank Lloyd Wright home, The Palmer House, in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
An advocate of thrifted fashion, I brought my vintage suitcases loaded to the brim with mostly thrifted outfits I've had in my closet for a while. During the height of Covid, many social events were cancelled and the opportunity to dress up has been minimal. I've been watching a lot of B. Jones Style channel on YouTube and I love her motto, "Always play dress up." You don't necessarily need a special occasion, sometimes it is fun to just dress up and enjoy it yourself. It seemed fitting to play dress up in this beautiful home.
The Palmer House in Ann Arbor, Michigan, was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and built in the early 1950s.

If you like reading about Frank Lloyd Wright I recommend this set of small sized books written by Carla Lind featuring different aspects of Wright's work in each book. These are a lovely set to have out on a coffee table and don't take up very much space. I also enjoy these two larger books by Dianne Maddex which are full of amazing photographs inside various Frank Lloyd Wright buildings and homes.

My name is Jenny. I'm a hand engraver but I also am a creative who has a tough time sitting still. My mind is always swirling with new project ideas. In between engraving, I like to jump in and out of other activities like restoring a vintage camper, redecorating my home, woodworking and print making (just to name a few).
