Christmas Morning


All is peaceful. I just watched the sun come up here in New England. It is cold outside, but it is as it should be for this time of the year. While I am having my first cup of Earl Gray for the day, I feel it is the perfect time to sit and send my Victorian friends good wishes. I wish you  and your family peace and harmony for the day and the up and coming year.
With much admiration, Lady Estelle

Two African American girls

This photo is amazing. The young girl standing looks like me at the age of 8 and the girl sitting looks like my sister Wilhelmina at the age of 9. Wow,

african american woman, circa1910

I absolutely love the flowers on her waist band.

Happy Holidays!

December is here already. Soon we will be saying "Happy New Years!"
But before that happens, let me wish you all a very happy and healthy holiday season.
From my family to yours.
Lady Estelle
