A Merry Christmas!

Yes, I know, it's almost the New Year... But in my house it's still Christmas so...
Merry Christmas to you all!!
And here are some pictures I've found of Christmas scenes or illustrations in different eras.

Medieval (love the yellow and gold dress!)

Victoria and Albert and their children

The very first Christmas. =]
A Very Merry Christmas to you all!

Christmas, Apologetics (of sorts) and Pictures

Hello my good fellows!
I simply have to post something for I cannot bear the sight of the date on the last post any longer!

*sigh* There. I have fixed it. I feel much better. And I WILL post the bonnet tutorial. Just... not until I have the time. (That's where things get messy you see..)
Anyway... I am SO excited about Christmas! I cannot believe it's here already! What joyous times! I hope everyone's Christmas will be full of merriness and love! Merrymaking is one of my most favorite things! I would love to hear all about your plans for Christmas and of course your projects and presents, and the like, I am always interested in. =]

I haven't been doing a whole lot of sewing lately, but I have been "researching" a bit... Which usually consists of me finding a picture I like and then perusing ALL of what the blogger has posted. And this, ladies, is why I do not have an entirely full closet! *gasp of horror* Yes, I know... Shameful.. Disgraceful... Alas... that is the way of things at the moment. So... I will leave you with a few pictures I've found that I think are absolutely inspiring!

Calender from the year 1897 (from the Graphics Fairy)
(To me, the dresses look like late 1700's while still resembling styles of the late 1800's, which I think is pretty typical of paintings.) =]
Regency evening attire.
(Isn't this gorgeous? I've never seen anything like this before!)
Here are five different ladies from Renaissance/medieval/Shakespearean Eras
(Also from The Graphics Fairy) Aren't they lovely? =]

All my love,
