In this very hot summer we are having
in the Pacific Northwest,
I have been living in my long,
summer broomstick skirts.
Not only are they cool with a simple tee,
but they are perfect country attire
when exposing bare legs is
just an invitation to lunch for
the many hungry mosquitoes
and other biting insects
here in the foothills.
A broomstick skirt is defined as:
A full, gathered or pleated skirt
that has characteristic tiny creases
obtained by wetting the skirt
and winding it around
a broomstick to dry.
Here I have designated a little corner
of my kitchen for my
newly washed indigo silk
I simply secured it at the top with an elastic band,
then wrapped a long length of thin ribbon
around, starting at the top and criss-crossing
it on the way down, then tying it in a bow
at the bottom.
Is there anything more delightful than
gathering up field flowers
in a long, flowy skirt?
A home-made lavender sachet
keeps things sweet.
Do any of you
have a broomstick skirt?
Wishing you lovely summer days,
full of sunshine and flowers!
Thank you for your sweet visits -
I so enjoy every one!
