Oh Marcie, how I love these images of Victorian life. I think I was born in the wrong era for sure. I think I would have rather loved having a maid, don't you? lol

Sooooo lovely! The first reminds me of John Singer Sargent - one of my favorites. Hugs, Terri xoxo

Marcie, the paintings are so lovely. Did you see how tiny her waist is in the first picture? Goodness, she had to have been uncomfortable & couldn't even set
Thank you for sharing these. They are beautiful.
Blessings dear one, Sharon

Marcie, what beautiful images you've shared today. I LOVE that first one....that dress is just to die for gorgeous, and yes, her waist is amazing! I'll take the waist and the dress, please!

Marcie, the paintings are clear and yet such soft colors.
Love collectings these white dresses...especially the children's clothing.

Such great lighting in these- and such a delicate waist in the first image!

1909 was the year my grandmother was born!

Dear Marcie, I just dropped by from another site, as I was perusing things for my blog.

Your place is so very wonderful! I feel as if I've been in a little cottage in the English countryside. Thank you for your love and labor!

I am home from church this morning with sick grandbabies, so after devotionals I thought I would work a bit on my blog. My diversion to your own has been very refreshing!

Much Love in Jesus Christ our Lord,

Beautiful images. I love the maid's uniforms of years gone by. If I ever could afford a maid now, I would specify she must wear that vintage style as part of her employment ;)
