This year’s Ticket to the Twenties, the 20s festival at the Workman Temple Homestead Museum, was a delight.  So much cooler than last year, we were actually able to enjoy our picnic with friends rather than drip in our clothes. At the festival you can do everything from tour the homes, watch silent films, hear talks, learn to play the ukulele or mahjong, or listen and dance to the live bands.  We chose to picnic, listen to music, and watch the fashion show.  The Sunday show, put on by the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles, was once again a delight.

There were a couple of adorable Halloween costumes.

Our picnic with friends was terrific and getting to visit with those we know is one of the highlights of the event.

This year I wore a vintage 20s homemade dress that took lace and elements from an Edwardian dress back in the day and upcycled it into a 20s/30s transitional dress.  Rather clever, that crafty sewer was.

The Spanish style Casa Nueva, one of the homes on the estate, is lovely and my favorite on site. The inside I've shown you in this post. But the outside is just as beautiful.

Overall the day is a highlight of my year and something we always look forward to.
