Yesterday we commemorated the first anniversary of the passing of Allison
, Pond Pinup, fondly known as "The Girl Next Door."

                                    We sadly miss this shining light of a woman, and trusts she rests well.  What a loss...

"How many clouds of scented lace kiss each other under your skirt?"  
                                                                             
C. Govoni (1884-1965)

 
WHEN I SEE...
A fetching lass, enveloped in tulle,
declaring, defining the beauty of Man(kind)
Slim of waist, contours of mystery.
Dark tresses which defy description,
a mantel of the soul.
She leads on, unaware of her uniqueness--
Classic, haunting,
Deep auras of eyes
Deep vibrations from the heart
Deep color of the gentleness of her inner self.
I see jealousy
I see my yearning to take her place
I see, also, my utter, deadening sadness.
Tes Staylace -- July 12, 1992
Update Page Policies
Generally, updates are linked to the appropriate area so you do not have to search for it.  We keep updates for as long as six months,
after which we merge the individual entries into the appropriate areas of the site.  Very rarely is anything discarded.
Pettipond  ALWAYS attributes the source of pictures when possible.  Image contributions should include the source, when possible, so at least the site from which it is taken can posted with it. It makes no sense, and is unfair, to have the same image on the Internet more than once, especially if the site originally posting it doe not at least get the benefit of a link. If an image is not attributed, and later is found to be in violation of copyright laws, it will be removed.
The Pond is FIRSTLY a petticoat/bouffant/crinoline site, and SECONDLY a TG site.  Image contributions are always welcome and appreciated, but our policy is to not post TG images (with the exception of Poufbunny Parlor Pinups and the occasional VERY passable CDer (in our Flash Pinup section).  Please do not be offended - there are many TG sites on the Internet, but only ONE Pond, and we want also to be inviting to GGs and non-TG males who merely appreciate females in petticoats!
Pettipond Reflections response additions will NOT be listed in this area.
