I must go back, I simply must...



Winterthur (the estate-turned-museum of  Henry Francis du Pont) is such a wondrous place. Going there as often as I could was one of best things {maybe the best thing} about my time living in Delaware. It would worth a return visit on its own, but this exhibition, opening March 1, makes a weekend trip a definite must.

If you're on Pinterest, you can see more images this way {including this detail from one of Mrs. Hughes' dresses}.

This exhibit is a MUST SEE! I've wanted to visit Winterthur for ages... the time has come! Thanks for bringing this to my attention, Audrey. I've followed the Pinterest board, too ;)

This and so much else in the Brandywine area. And the Hotel DuPont. A great weekend away.

Oh my goodness, Audrey, an exhibit like that would have me counting off the days like a child waiting for Christmas! Fingers crossed we have something like it come to Toronto.

Your post reminds me of the lovely exhibit which came to the Art Institute of Chicago, uniting dress and history. I'm totally unfamiliar with Delaware, but I'd go with you if I could!
