This past Sunday, Victorian at Heart had its first official outing. We headed off to the newly reopened Dalnavert Museum.
Dalnavert is my favorite house museum and last year I had a little cry-fest when it was announced that it wasn’t doing well and would be converted to office space (horrors!) Enough people rose up and it was saved with a new plan to try to salvage it. I for one, will be doing my bit and going a few times this year.
Shirley and I had the joy of meeting our newest member in person for the first time. We had met through the internet but had not yet met her in person yet. This is our new friend Lottie Lovett trying out my stereoscope.
Lottie is an excellent seamstress who made her lovely 1880’s bustle dress!After our little snack and get to know you session, we toured the house. We started in the kitchen. From there, we went to the dining room.
Then the main hallway where I left my calling card.
