In case you’re wondering, no this lake picture isn’t connected to our current flood issues (posted one picture on my fanpage though). This is in NY as we were checking out an area that my in-laws are interested in moving to (these were taken about two weeks ago). The house was very lovely and didn’t seem to have been updated since the fifties!
This is another vintage dress borrowed from Lauren of Sparrow & Urchin. I love the details in the neckline! So cool! Thanks again Lauren!
Reason why I’m doing this #14:A couple of weeks ago I finished reading a book called Little Princes. It’s about a man who volunteered to work for an orphanage for a pat on the back. However, in time he realized how much he adored being with them and found out these kids were really misplaced, not orphans. Misplaced? There was a civil war in Nepal in 1996-2006. Many children were taken by various people and often left in numbers at places where they had to try to survive on their own. One man in particular he knew of was trafficking the children, telling the parents he was going to take them somewhere safe and give them an education if they let him have their kids and some money. Because the parents wanted what was best for their children by giving them opportunities, they would let them go with the man. The problem was that some of them he would in turn sell to people to be live-in-unpaid “servants” who get beaten for richer people in Nepal. Other times he would just leave many of them to survive on their own in abandoned buildings. Conor Grennan started to search out the families and search out for lost children so that he could bring them back to their families and explain to them what really was going on so that they wouldn’t do it in the future. He runs an organization called Next Generation Nepal and has reunited hundreds of children to their families. Find out how you can help here. I truly recommend the book too!
