Welcome! I believe as with anything else in life, this first post is going to be the hardest and perhaps the most awkward. Where do I start? Why a blog you may ask? Well, I have been toying with this idea for a while now, and I have decided to do something about it. I hope to share mainly observations, but perhaps a little of the knowledge that I have picked up along the way. I love all period textiles and the ethnic foodways of Wisconsin. I am experienced in period crochet and tatting techniques. Women's history has a special place in my heart.
Basically, I hope my wanderings through the 19th and Early 20th century material culture are as interesting and fun to you as they are for me.
