#makesmesmilemonday Thelma's Gypsy Girls

Anyone who knows me well knows that I am obsessed with the Amish, Appalachians, and Gypsies.  I am just completely interested in learning as much as I can about these unique cultures - I admire so many aspects of each for so many different reasons. I have watched every single Netflix or online documentary related to each. Yep - I'm obsessed!

So I'm thrilled to see that there is a new series on the British Channel Four: Thelma's Gypsy Girls follows along as a group of young traveller women learn the ins and outs of dressmaking alongside famed and over-the-top wedding seamstress Thelma Madine.

Am I the only one obsessed with Traveller (and Amish and Appalachian) life?

Yes, I realize. Probably.

Check out the show's website or watch part one of the first episode on YouTube.
