 Last month, I was invited to my first Steampunk Tea. It was just one of the events that was part of an out-of this-world Convention and Exhibit.

 I had the opportunity to meet some inspirational Time Travelers.

 A Lady must always be prepared to defend herself on such an adventure.

 The entertainment was out of this world.
 And such wonderful delights with interesting guests.

 It was truly a memorable event.

 2013 is quickly coming to an end. It was a good year for me.
 I had many new adventures and met wonderful new friends to take the journey with me.
 I have learned a lot about myself and feel quite lucky.
 I have no regrets on how the year went for me. If I had to do it all over, I would not change a thing.
 Yes, life have been good to me and I am truly grateful!
 I want to thank my friends who have inspired me in my quest for knowledge of history and my heritage.
 As I look back on what I have learned, I am ready for what the future holds for me.
I am ready to bring in 2014 as a true Victorian and Historian.

From time to time a Victorian woman must make some alterations on an old dress to create a new look. Well mine began with a lovely yellow ball gown I have not worn in year. The first time was at a Civil war ball in 2010.
It was a challenge being I have not sown in awhile. But it was the time to put on my Victorian thinking cap and come up with something smashing for my up and coming event.  Here goes.

I had a wonderful and rewarding year at Hearthside. I was pleased
with my interpretation of the Hearthside house cook and feel my guest were to.

 Now the season is coming to an end. 
This month we will decorate the house for Christmas, give our last tours of the house and then close up for the winter

An afternoon of old-fashioned fun is in store for girls and their moms, along with their American Girl Dolls® on the grounds with a Victorian Garden Party being held on Sunday, August 18th.

This event is especially designed for girls ages 5-10. This event focuses on the leisurely past times during the Victorian age. There will also be refreshments of old-fashioned lemonade and cookies along with lawn games, such as croquet, graces and hoops. The fun continues with prizes and raffles, tours of the house, and shopping for a special treat for girls and their dolls.

There will be two seatings: one at 11:30 a.m. and the other at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $20 for each child/adult pair and $12 for any additional children and may be reserved by calling Hearthside at 726-0597. Like our other doll events, we expect that tickets will go quickly, especially since seating is limited, so don't delay!

The Great Gatsby Auto Show at Hearthside House, this weekend past, was a smashing hit! We could not have asked for better weather. The lawn of Hearthside was filled with beautiful automobles of the past. It was a pleasue to meet the owners of these well kept and pampered automobiles. It made for a most memorable event in Hearthside's history.

 What a wonderful step back into the 1920"s.

 I am sorry I've been away from my blog for so long. I've been busy doing so many wonderful things and having a wonderful Victorian journey. I have so much to share with you, I do not know where to begin. Well first of all, my good friend Mia has decided to shut down her blog. I'm so sad about that, but I can totally understand her reasoning. Her journeys is taking her in to new places and it is very hard to sit down and write about adventures in a timely fashion.

 She is my inspiration for such a young woman. You must read her blog. You will also be inspired.
 I do feel that it is important to keep a blog. Writing gives you a chance to stop, sit back and see where you have been and where you are heading. I wish her all the best that the world has to offer.

I had a wonderful historic 61st birthday spent with friends and family.

When one gets older one must still make changes in their lives. This is my motto. Every year , after my birthday day, I plan for these wonderful changes that send my into a new year with new adventure and a new start. This is my way of not feeling old but new.

My Victoria Birthday Tea Party!
I hosted the tea party portraying Madam Sissieretta Jones, "the greatest African American Opera singer of her time.
The guest arrived promptly at 5pm on June 26,2013, as invited and was greeted by two of my dear friends of history, Sir.Salisbury and Lady Kennedy.

The ladies was dressed for tea with their hats and party attire. It was held in one of Providence's elegant Victorian Homes.
At the tea, I had the honor of teaching the young ladies that attended, some good old fashion tea etiquette. It was a glorious event. These lovely photos were taken by Robb Dimmick.
The Tea received news coverage by the Providence Journal, which is our town's paper. These photo's were taken by their photographer. I was given permission to use one or two of many that were taken.

It was my birthday and I could not have wanted to spend it any other way.
