It is one of those day's!
The washing is done!
The ironing is hidden!
The bed is made!
I pulled it us quick this morning!
But a nice pot of tea has been gently brewing
and now here I am to take a moment to visit my friends and sipping tea in a very unhurried way!
Yes I made dark chocolate spiders late last night and I know it is early in the day but well what the heck! there is no-one here to see me nibbling them so early (hips forgive me!!)
but I am home alone!!
ALL DAY!!! on my own!
and; Just a bit of news from here too:
My husbands masonic lodge in May is having its 150th birthday and while it is a secret (I know you won't tell) the girls of the lodge on the very full day of events and at the very Victorian Dinner are all going to step back in time and will all be dressed in outfits from the year 1859 how much fun that would be and as the masters wife I came up with the idea at the time thinking it would be easy but it is hard to choose what to wear but here are some photos of some ideas you may be able to help me make up my mine as to what would look best (smiles)
I believe this last photo was taken very close to the year 1859 and the bustle dress was what they dressed in here however many outfits were continued to be used from the previous ten years and I think they were the more full Crinoline skirt. Most of our ladies are going to get the fuller style because they will feel more comfortable on such a busy day seeing as we are going to serve morning tea, light lunch and the afternoon tea followed by pre-dinner drinks and then the formal meal will be served by a catering service.
However below..........this is my outfit below and the bonnet as well I got them all from America but that is another story and also this is just one of my outfits for the day I think......and that is still another story. (smiles)
