Old Things, New Finds

Hello Faithful Friends,

A while ago (but I will not say how long ago, so I don't want to reveal how behind I am in posting), we went to the an old mansion to tour.  As me being so very much into those things, I really loved it!  It truly was a mansion with 40 rooms - even an art gallery!  It would have been nice to see the house full of furniture and maybe even people dressed and acting like they lived and worked there!  But I can see why they wanted to use furniture that was original to the house.  It was still very educational and fun!  Sadly, flash photography was prohibited, but a couple pictures turned out.

I also found this neat website:  They sell late 1800's fashions newly made, and anything you want - from corsets and swimsuits, to dresses and boots.  Take a look at the swimsuits, I actually think they are cute and wouldn't mind wearing one!  Does anyone have any other good places to buy old-fashioned clothes?  Ebay is also a good place to look.

Thank you for reading!  Until next time,

Wow! Thanks for sharing that website. Very cool. I love some of those clothes they have on there, and I'd like to wear them if, first of all, they cost a little bit less, and secondly, if I wouldn't look like a time-traveler and get all kinds of strange looks every time I stepped outside the house! lol But you ought to get one of those dresses when you start teaching one-room school.

You've been quite busy on the computer tonight! Thanks for the e-mail! <3

Looks like a fun old house! Very big!

Cool website! I love that swim-suit! Almost looks like something you could wear even when you weren't swimming. haha Maybe someday if I'm feeling really rich I'll get something off of there. :-D
