As much as we try to pack in lots of interesting historical drawings, paintings, and photographs here on the blog, there's still much more that we've never been able to share - until we discovered Pinterest, that is.
Have you ever wondered what fashionable creations Loretta's 1830s dressmakers were stitching in Silk for Scandal? Are you curious about which 18th c London town house inspired Isabella for When You Wish Upon a Duke? On our constantly updated (we can't help ourselves) Pinterest site, you'll discover boards devoted to "illustrating" our latest books. You'll also find other boards filled with everything from paintings of the Vauxhall pleasure gardens to Thomas Rowlandson cartoons, 18th c shoes to 19th c corsets, wedding dresses of every era to Queen Victoria's famous white wedding. We'll even show you what we'd keep in our jewel box if price and history were no object (and if HRH Queen Elizabeth wouldn't mind sharing a few diamonds from her own collection.) Please come check us out here, or better yet, follow us on Pinterest at TwoNerdyHistoryGirls*** (and yes, those asterisks are part of our "address.:)
There’s a big difference in how we use history. But we’re equally nuts about it. To us, the everyday details of life in the past are things to talk about, ponder, make fun of -- much in the way normal people talk about their favorite reality show.
We talk about who’s wearing what and who’s sleeping with whom. We try to sort out rumor or myth from fact. We thought there must be at least three other people out there who think history’s fascinating and fun, too. This blog is for them.
