  1. I wish I'd lived there then. Well - except for dentistry. And plumbing. I like plumbing. And shorter dresses. I like those now. Hmmmm....why did I want to live there then? Ahhhhh......NO COMPUTERING! :)

  2. I think the dresses and home were gorgeous from that time, but I like plumbing too and computers and health care......but I love looking at things from that period! Thank you for the chance to win this piece of vintage goodness!

  3. A very interesting time in your history for sure! I think every generation has something to offer. I am unsure what will be in our future. I love all the pets you have and had in your life. They are so sweet! You always post the best vintage! Hugs Anne

  6. What a beautiful catalog. I love the little girl's dresses. The styles really haven't changed too much for little ones over the years. My Jessica (will be 30 in August) had a number of cute dresses very similar to these when she was a "wee one". Hope that you are having a beautiful day! ((Hugs))

  25. The Victoria era is a close second for me behind the mid-20th century as my favourite of all time from a fashion standpoint.

    There was so much elegance and grace, allure and skillful tailoring that went into the immortally wonderful looks of those days and I know a catalog like this would provide me with reams of wonderful yesteryear fashion inspiration.

    Thank you for holding this giveaway, sweet dear!


    Big hugs & joyful Tuesday wishes,
