In the early 1890s, finally a good deep black. The fabric designers got a little crazy...with overprints in harsh colors like purple, bright blue, pink and green. These prints were often referred to as 'Uglies' at the time. 'Neons' is a 20th century term for them. The first modern use of neon lighting was at the Paris Motor Show in 1910.
We are headed out to Yellowstone Park for the weekend for my husband's 67th birthday. We are staying at a B & B on a bluff just above the Yellowstone River. The forecast is for overcast and cool....perfect Montana fall weather!
