It's that time...

Petticoat Pond  celebrates its twentieth-first year this winter!  During that time, it has striven to become a friendly place for all who
appreciate The Bouffant and petticoats, and femininity in general - You're not the 'only one!'  Part of our philosophy is to welcome all,
no matter whom, and no matter their financial station in life.  Consequentially, we try to rely on banners and spurious monetary contributions. 

However, that is not always enough.  In the past we have occasionally held fundraisers to see us through those leaner times (The last was
held 2½ years ago), and now is such a time, a time to help us keep our head above The Pond water, as it were.

We appeal to those who can, to send even a small amount - it is certainly appreciated! 
Of course, special thanks to those that send funds when they can!

Funds can be sent by check, made out to 'Coral Computers - PP' and sent to PP, PO Box 624, Gainesville  VA  20156;

OR,  PayPal, using this address: <<lierse@reagan.com>>   (Best is to designate the money as 'personal', and not 'business'.)

We are committed to NEVER making The Pond a pay site.

Her Pond page

 


Crinolyn is in the slow process converting all the video clips from our video page to a HTML5 compatible
format. As this is a long process, we thought we would give you a sneak peak of a redone clip we had online
before. The original clip was
here; the updated version is here.  As a special treat, Crinolyn also included
some slow motion versions of the same clip. Unfortunately, due to the file size of the slow motion clips, we
will only have a few select clips redone with the slow motion.

This was posted in the past, but Sylvia Marie's optimization is pertinent
because this picture points out that some
Era crinolines were open
weaved, and stiff enough to stand alone.  Makes for a unique skirt flow.

Nostalgia

Offered and optimized by Sylvia Marie

 

For those of you who remember the Corvair (and its notoriety), Crinolyn  has found a 1960 commercial featuring a VERY bouffant-y' little girl.
(The 'Easter Bunny' is scary, like all clowns are...bbbrrrr!)


Yvette C. calls this a twirling parachute dress,
but it more aptly could be described as a twirling upskirt.

Yvette also points to this page, which concentrates on hoopskirts.

In The Era, little girls ALWAYS dressed like this for
occasions, and many times for school and travel.

(On our many flights to the Caribbean, we have
often noticed that even these days many Puerto Rican
[and perhaps other Latino] parents will do the same)

"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.
Tessy 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 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).  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.
