One of the most enjoyable parts of working in a living history museum for me is the period clothing. The outfit you see here is my favorite, saved for best. On ordinary days, I wear plainer clothing since it gets filthy during the course of a day in the life of an 18th century indentured servant. The outfits are not costumes, but pieces lovingly made by a woman who specializes in authentic historic reproduction clothing. They are fine, rich in color, and worth every penny. This being the final weekend before winter closing, the farmhouse is decorated with fresh greens to celebrate the holiday season. We served hot cider to our guests as they explored the house and farm. During the holidays. handmade crafts are sold in the farmhouse. As a lover of 18th century dress, and a vain one at that, I had been wanting a new cap for ages. Happily, I was able to purchase an incredibly beautiful linen cap made by a co-worker. Well, enough about my wardrobe expansion...what follows are some quiet photos I was able to take between tours.
