Fashion History buffs’ social distancing treat

For introverts like me, social distancing has been a treat.  Much of my adult life has been spent trying to get out of social engagements I have no interest in so I can Netflix binge and craft.  Now I’m doing what I like with no need to work my way out of engagements I have no interest in.  Yeah!

My latest thrill is “Self Made: Inspired by the life of Madam C.J. Walker”.  It is the story of an African American woman at the turn of the century who is trying to start a business.  She was an inspiring character and her story is really interesting.  But the icing to the cake for me is the costumes.  All of the dresses seem historically accurate to me.  But I LOVE  the fashions of the more well to do ladies.  They are so pretty.

I recommend it to anyone who is into history or biographies or pretty dresses!

Donation at work

I work in a nursing home that at one time was a Veteran’s hospital. There are many memorial style donations and last week I noticed a new one.

It is a quite large replica of a Swedish war ship.

The detail is impressive!

Until next time, keep virus-free.
