A friend of mine had her 50th birthday bash yesterday, and an 18th century one to booth. So yesterday I was a bit too busy hunting out my clothes, ironing them and doing some neccesary repairs to blog. I had great fun and really wish I had brought a camera. I hope I can borrow some pictures from friends, because there were some truly beautiful clothes to be seen. Especially a French gown that I think is the most beautifully executed 18th century gown I have ever seen- and I have seen some outstanding examples.
But here are a few links to this weeks most inetresting blog entries.
