It's that time of year again! Can it really have been four years since I first started this little blog? Apparently it can, and to celebrate I am holding a giveaway of a lovely vintage painted fan.
Isn't it sweet?! In order to be entered for the drawing all you need to do is leave a comment by July 3rd telling me what your favorite blog entry has been; I'm curious to know what you've enjoyed the most. I will choose the winner at random; and, yes, I will ship the fan overseas.
Here's a quick shot of my new mantelet, about which details will be shortly forthcoming. After this I'm going to be taking a hiatus from the 18th century (briefly) to complete a costume from another time period. You can follow along with that project on my other blog here.
I am a university professor and costume professional who calls Virginia home. Interested in costume history, and history in general, I endeavor constantly to better understand life through those who lived it.
