Some of the magazine descriptions of clothing, houses, and furnishings are as charming and interesting as the items themselves. This bed is a great example. It strikes me as delightfully fanciful, and I like the way it's described as a balance between English and French taste. I also like the options of decorating with more "chasteness" or more "gaiety."
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.
