Last week I decided I wanted to watch some of the lunar eclipse.I
knew it was cold out and so I put on my beautiful brown Valenkis that
go almost to my knees. The temperature was cold, -11F, and I decided
to stay out only until I started to get uncomfortable. I watched a
lot of the eclipse and thoroughly enjoyed my time outside, being very
still, and very cozy. My fingers started to get chilly and my cheeks
were cold, although my bare toes in my warm boots were just beginning
to cool off.
Imagine my surprise when I discovered that I'd been out in that
sub-zero weather for almost an hour!
I LOVE your boots!!!!!
Thanks, Pam, US
Presented Russian handmade head-dresses were traditional for Russia in 18 - 19 centuries. Women's headwear, though varied in shape and style, was subject to one of the strictest regulations: no married woman could be seen in public with her hair showing. Maidens, on the other hand, were expected to have at least tops of their heads uncovered, and were free to show off their hair. The best known and probably oldest kokoshnik had a high front shaped like a crescent with rounded edges. The front of a kokoshnik is adorned with gold and pearl embroidery.
