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.

Lovely Young Girl's Afternoon Tea!

 What a fantastic afternoon with 44 young ladies having etiquette and tea with me this past Saturday .It was as rewarding for them as it was for me.

  All dressed up, and ready to host the Young Ladies Tea Party at the Gov Lippit House, which is now an elegant museum ..  This beautiful and elegant mansion was constructed for him and his family back in 1863. This home is full of life and history . The house stayed in the family for four generations









My dear friends dropped off the mini scones, that will compliment the Tea Party. Chief Shawn prepared the delightful finger sandwiches and tea was served my grand daughters and a friend.

 It was a huge success. This was a wonderful beginning of Spring Teas!

My Up-Coming Event

This is a wonderful opportunity for young girls of any color! Join me!
Stages of Freedom presents this annual event, co-sponsored by Preserve Rhode Island, to provide young girls of color an opportunity to take tea together. Lady Estelle Barada, a Black Victorian re-enactor, uses taking tea to teach social graces and tea etiquette to young girls. The party is a part of a long tradition in the Black community of using tea parties to teach manners, social network and raise funds for important causes. The event is free, but registration is required.Visit StagesofFreedom.org to register and sponsor a girl to attend for only $20!
