The Ending to a good year!

 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.

New dress for a Christmas celebration

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.
