Some of you, my lovely readers, can relate to this. Why have I got so many followers ? Over 3000 to date ! I reckon that there are less than 200 who actually visit, comment, like or hit my blog. To the remaining 2800 I have a question. Why do you ONLY follow, then disappear, never to be seen again ?
That question actually leads me into my post. All of you 200 followers are special to me and I would like to give a shout out to one follower, whom I also follow. Mutual stalking ?
Hi Resa ! If it wasn’t for blogging, Resa and I would have never communicated and Natascha and I would have never met and got married. So thank you WordPressCom.
In a machine age, dressmaking is one of the last refuges of the human, the personal, the inimitable.
Resa is phenomenal ! Not only is she a fantastic movie Costume Designer, once nominated for a prestigious Canadian Film Award, but also in her spare time she creates wonderful Art Gowns. I think she has lovingly hand sewn over 12 gowns to date. Each one taking months to make out of scraps of material. They are all different and unique. It would be brilliant if she could one day show them in a gallery or on a catwalk.
This is where the gown “O Royal Treasure” comes into Natascha and my wedding last year.
Resa decided to name the gown after the Spanish village I lived in at the time. Cañada del Real Tesoro …. Track of the Royal Treasure. She thought that the gown would make a wonderful wedding dress for Natascha. After a lot of research, it was decided not to send the gown from Canada to Austria due to the expense and possible loss in transit, which would have been awful. Anyway, both Natascha and I would like to thank Resa for the kind thought which we will always treasure.
Resa asked us to link the gown to a charity and we chose Water Aid.
Recently, Resa made this drawing of Natascha wearing the gown. Lovely ! Thank you, our friend.
