Happy Monday everyone!
Each month I do postcard mailings to let people know about the program(s) I do and as a result of my last group of post cards I may have to bring along a chamber pot during the month of May. There’s going to be lots of tea poured as I talk history in a fashionable way and that’s just fine with me. I’m always good for a cup of tea and bring on the scones with the clotted cream….
Spring is a perfect time to share a cup of tea; its what the ladies of the 19th century did when they got together. It was a time they could show off their baking skills, their newest china or even a new frock.
I’m working on some new summer frocks to show off and talk about starting in May and I’m pretty excited about them. The additions to my mid-19 century wardrobe are moving on to the 1870’s and 1880’s. You know what that means….. bring on the lobster bustle!
Until then, I’ll have to go easy on the scones; I won’t be able to remove my corset until the end of the 19th century.
I’ll leave you with a laugh for the rest of the week. Here’s a crazy picture I found of a lady serving tea? Sorry, I couldn’t resist…. take care.
