I am a Docent and tour guide to the historic Hearthside House in Lincoln, RI. I have a passion for the Victorian era.

I am a lover of the art of drinking tea, having Victorian tea parties, and teaching young girls tea etiquette and proper manners in public.

sorry I've been away

 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.
