WallflowerVintage presents: An awareness of time and place

Can clothing summon a feeling? Absolutely. A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit Cushing, Maine; home of the well known Olsen house. If you don't know it by name, you certainly have seen "Christina's World" by famed and recently deceased artist Andrew Wyeth.

The past swirls around this lonely house bathing one in a briny history of salt-crusted sea captains and a hard, yet simple life.

Simpler times, simpler pleasures. Thoughts of handmade cotton dresses and cobbled shoes. Blueberry harvests and lobster traps. Salty air and harsh winters.

Come with us for a moment, breathe in the ocean breeze, sit down and relax.
