I’m very slowly catching up! Here are photos from the Braddock Day Ball at Gadsbys Tavern. The date was 1755. For whatever reason, this ball didn’t sell out and it was a relatively small crowd. (Unlike the 1790s Birthnight Ball which was packed.) But that meant more room for dancing! I rewore my Princess Caroline sacque. I really should have … Continue Reading →

I’m not sure exactly where they came from, but we have these two Godzillas that hang out in the little room attached to the small “lounge” where we have lunch and tea.

Getting back to my Dallas trip in March. On Saturday we visited a log cabin village in regency outfits. We were a little early time-period-wise, but it was a fun place to take photos – and actually really interesting to visit.

I am super belated posting about this, but oh well. I was lucky enough to get the chance to visit my DFW friends for a costume weekend!

We stayed one night at Port Orleans Riverside, which was ok, but to get to … Continue Reading →
