Shirley and I decided to be like a real Victorian lady who wore several outfits throughout the day. But before that, we had our little Christmas morning.
I gave her the gloves I made for her.
Mine was a birthday/Christmas combo with a little tiara, a cabinet card, a vintage wallet with some funny coins for “ladies of the evening.”
Then we dressed for a morning of shopping.
We found an excellent deal at a fabric store. Shirley is getting hers measured out and mine is in the bag.
This is my fabric. I think it will be a day dress for a more common woman in the 1840’s.
There were some lovely photo ops all over the place.
While walking around, I found this quote and I think it suits me just fine!
We went back to our hotel at lunch time and the sun in the window made a lovely photo!
One for Shirley and one for me.
After a quick meal and a very Victorian rest we got ready for the afternoon.
As you can see by my taped shoulder, I am the walking wounded.
We went to the local church for a high tea.
And then enjoyed a carriage ride.
I love carriage rides.
Then it was back to the hotel to don our evening wear. Isn’t this the prettiest outer wear!
I wore my Green Queen dress.
The Queen and her Lady in Waiting.
All in all, an excellent time!
