It's hard to believe the first month of the new year is gone already! This last day of January was a work day and we had two delightful guests for Afternoon Tea... Elizabeth and Sandra.
As soon as they walked through the front door in beautiful pre and mid Civil War outfits I knew I wanted to take their picture, and they graciously granted me permission. I thought they might belong to an reenactment group, but they don't. Elizabeth [on the left] is a seamstress and makes costumes. Sandra is her good friend. They're big Jane Austen fans.
The Whitney grand staircase was perfect for photographing their beautiful outfits.
We had two other guests today who were special too - a pre-school little boy and his brother who was probably in kindergarten or first grade. They came with their mother and grandmother and were dressed in matching light blue sport coats with red bow ties. They were perfectly behaved little princes. Because they were children I didn't ask to take their picture to post on the Internet.
I always say, "You meet the nicest people over tea!" And my job allows me to meet them frequently. I love my job!
