Beautiful Bee! Love how you went through the eras!
Nice. Can you imagine skating in those heavy skirts? In 1895 the bustle went away and culottes were considered acceptable and women could sit astride a horse.
Love this piece, how you worked your way through highlights and all the so called progress of time. Well some is, but some, was it really progress. I kind of like the legacies they left.
Bee,Well done lady.Thanks for the stroll down memory's lane.rel
To the women before us, brava and thank-you.Nice homage, Bee.

WOW...that is really great. Excellent. I am impressed. :)xo
This is really wonderful!
This is so true. They didn't have all the knowledge and freedoms...good and bad...that we have now. Love their stylish garb and they seem to be having such a grand time : )
This is perfect in every way ......
beautiful! i just love this piece, the history adds an incredible depth, full of lessons to learn and/or remember.
Where would we be without the women?! :)
I wonder how these three felt about women's rights? Wouldn't you like to sit down to dinner with them? Nice piece, B.
I'm late with my thanks to you all. When I saw the picture, I was initially at a loss, then lots of ideas and then nothing. This was the result!I am glad you liked it - all your comments gave me food for thought. I was very aware of the hardship that many faced - not all of course were born into genteel families. And before that particular era there were many hard working and brave women (such as the fictional Melanie Wilkes) who were the backbone of building the society of that time. ( I must admit though I found her a pain at times - not for her patriotism but for her unrealistic won't-have-a-bad-word-said about anyone, especially Scarlett).Yes I would have loved to sit down to dinner with them - I think the conversation would have been very enlightening to say the least.thank you everyone for taking the time to call in and post. Much appreciated.
Oh I do like this. Not just the meaning, but the sense of rhythm that carries you along as you read it.
Thank you Alan - glad you caught the rhythm - that's exactly what I attempted to do.
You are always welcome here . Thank you for visiting.
