For Christmas, my husband bought me all the Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. I just finished the 6th book called The Long Winter in which the Ingalls family endured hardships of blizzards for seven months! I decided to look up old photos of Laura Ingalls Wilder. I decided on Sunday morning to go to church dressed with an inspiration from the books I’ve been reading mixed with the 1950s. I have posted myself in this 50s skirt before back in December, but they were indoor shots (due to the bronchitis I had) and I have been dying to get photos of myself in it outdoors! My friend at church’s reaction to my outfit was, “LITTLE WOMEN!” . . I have yet to read that book too 😉
It was about 17 degrees outside when I took these plus it was windy. My eyes watered a little from the cold wind. The following day it was -4 degrees, so I picked a good day for photos! Now as I type this up I am staring out of a window as the snow is falling and is said to create about 10 more inches for us. I’m feeling very blessed to have such weather, as odd as that sounds. I guess reading The Long Winter was helpful to see how blessed I am.

I love all their clothes. Probably were all handmade by their Ma. Laura is the one standing on the right. Carrie is the little one and Mary is sitting.
