Ah, there's nothing quite like graduation! It's a grand affair, and when you take that walk across the stage and receive your diploma, it feels like a million bucks! Check out this photo of an old Victorian lass, big hair bow, pleased as can be...and she should be, as many Victorian ladies did not receive much opportunity towards higher education. That's why it's a good thing for all us gals to celebrate graduations with other ladies we know.
Over on Ruby Lane, I have a really sweet old graduation print from the 1890's, called "The Girl Graduate". Take a sneak peek of it here! Such a sweetie, obviously lost in deep thought, dreaming of her new "life".
