A painting to be jealous of…

There are days when I wish myself out of this year and to some other time.  It never tends to be the same time period…usually a day dream to 1810 walking a meadow in England, or an idyllic scene of myself sewing near an open window on a warm summer day around 1880.  Oh how intense my feeling of longing can be to ditch my jeans and slip into something more girly…and more complicated.  Of course, I often will drag myself back to reality realizing that I would never survive without hairspray, or mascara…but today was one of those days when I saw a picture and felt my thoughts smack right into the middle of the scene. What was this inspiring painting?…take a look for yourself
