I just completed a special order for 2 sisters who will be in a local beauty pageant tomorrow.(I know its very close to the wire but I made it!) The theme of the pageant is the red poppy. Georgetown is the red poppy capital of Texas. A native son brought back some seeds from Flanders Fields when he returned from WWI. Ever since we've been very proud of our red poppies. There aren't large fields of them, but many of the small parks and bungalows in our downtown have glorious stands of poppies.
The dresses pay homage to the red poppies and all the veterans who have served our country. Aren't they adorable. Picture them worn with a cowboy hat decorated with poppies and cowboy boots. I hope to get some pictures of the girls to post nevt week.
