Victorian Christmas

This is our first holiday season in our 1893 house and we have always wanted to host a Victorian Christmas party.  Since I just completed my masters degree in Public History, it was the perfect opportunity to have a party and get the house decorated.  We brought nature inside and decorated with cypress garland, boughs, red berries, etc. 
I want to keep the garland up all year round!
Boughs on the frames
Edmond and Nellie-Bly wish you a Happy Christmas.
Two Eastlake frames I picked up at the antique fair last weekend.
I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday this year and as our Christmas cards say, "Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man." --Benjamin Franklin

  4. Recently came across your wonderful blog! 1840's is pretty much my favorite decade, love seeing the wonderful gowns you've made. I have a dear friend who always attended the Dry Diggin's up in Columbia...I bet he knows who you are!
