A Small Dinner with Friends


The Devereauxs, the Cartwrights, and us


We had to do a shoe shot to show off our hard work from the week before.


At dinner.

Horses :D

Here’s a pic of hubs and I riding at his last lesson. I hopped on Bob while Aaron was walking Beesuz out. Audra, our instructor, snapped this pic of us.

Painted Devies

The girls and I got together yesterday afternoon and had a Devonshire painting party. Here are a few pics of my shoes :)




They aren’t perfect, but I’m happy with the overall results.

God Bless!

Another Gratuitous Pet Post!

Ok, I know, I just can’t help sharing my cute pets and they’re cute behavior. They just brighten my life so much. The latest super sweet pet moment occurred last week. Miss Georgina finally started laying eggs. When the older girls started laying, they would get my attention and have me sit with them through the process. Well, this time, Catherine, my oldest chicken, took it upon herself to sit with Georgina through her “labor” while Henrietta sounded the “mom, come here and check on us” alarm every twenty minutes. It was ridiculously adorable and sweet, and thankfully, I was able to snap a pic of Georgina and Catherine.


Catherine, the chicken on the left, sat with her wing draped over Georgina all day while she passed her first egg. Catherine preened her, and talked to her, and comforted her. It was amazingly sweet.

Pemberlies Progress



Here’s the original shoes I’m using for inspiration…


Here’s my pair so far. I still need to add the pleated ribbons. I also am not thrilled with the way the silk ribbon looks. The fabric glue makes it look wet and blotchy. So, I’m probably going to go for biased tape instead. Anyway, I’ll post more once they are finished. Have a lovely day!

Finished 1790’s Stays

My transitional stays are complete and quite comfortable. I’m very happy with the fit and feel.  Here are a few pics of them. Enjoy!




They are entirely hand sewn and constructed from one layer of canvas and two layers of medium weight linen.
