"I came across Charlene’s experience in 'Charlene’s Cookout' on this site, and would be interested in reaching out to her as I’m working on a new
written work and would like to ask her about her experiences. If she can contact me at sheryltheauthor@outlook.com
, it’d be greatly appreciated.

A rather dignified bride allowing
dignified peaks at her unmentionables

 

 

David Barber:

"I spotted on YouTube, a colour photo of my pop star Helen Shapiro, taken on a TV studio programme called Thank Your Lucky Stars, this would be
 about 1962. The song is 'Tell Me What He Said.' The dress, full skirted, is dark in blue satin and it has a sliver mesh net overlay on the skirt, it looks
 very nice. I think the song as it plays, shows photos of Helen in sequence.  you might be able to grab and down load that photo as it appears.
Anyway with best wishes  David  david.barber434@gmail.com

Indeed

From Crinolyn  
Media area

 

A short while back, we posted a couple pictures of Patti, who passed  away a couple of years ago, and of whom during her life, her husband took many pictures, which he jealously guarded. (However he DID give us  permission to post the ones here, in our Femme Splash area- we believe he, too, has passed away.) Doug M. has provided a HUGE cache of her work, which, we will post periodically, as these three pretty frilly blouse pictures.  Many are a bit  risqué for The Pond - we will not use those.

"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.
