I could have danced all night...


My Halloween involved no candy and no scary pumpkins...but an old fashioned band, a large dance floor, and a white ball dress! Yes. I am speaking of the amazing Bonnie Blue Ball.

While most people were going up to doors asking for sweets, I was dancing the night away in the 1860's style...a waltz here, a virginia reel there...and having a jolly good time doing so! A mixture, of period music, happy friends, and lady's wearing hoop skirts always proves to be an enjoyable evening!

Please feel free to drool over some pictures of the exciting evening!

I love your dress! As a reenactor myself I have always wanted a white dance dress. Hopefully sometime this spring I will have one. I have this cotten white sheer with a blue and grey stripe on it that I want use for a dance dress.

thanks for the inspiration and I love your blog! I am LadyAnn from the S&S forum
