18th century fashion

The handcraft guild at Louisbourg creates beautiful things.  This 18th century ladies pocket I purchased today at The Fortress gift shop.  They make great yarn bags.  I like the idea of having a pocket to tie on.  I probably could make it steampunkish.  Well I could try…

Louisbourg Day Four

Happy Birthday to me!!!  I had a great day.  I volunteered in collections this morning then went exploring around The Fortress.  I found another piece of the puzzle.  Look at what they have to work with, it’s very intriguing.  

Hmmmm….


Wore a few sparkly bits today…birthday suit…

Louisbourg Day 2

A few discoveries today and a lot of questions still to be answered.  The longer I delve into the bits and pieces the more I want to know.  I found part of an etched inscription  today.  I’m feeling more and more like a code breaker.  I used to love criptoquotes as a kid.  I guess those interests that you develop as a kid, turn into your passions when you are an adult.  


Visited Kennington Cove…


Day one Louisbourg 

It’s that time of year again.  My volunteer vacation at Louisbourg with Parks Canada Archeaology.  Today I was working in Collections, which happens to be one of my fav places.  Just think 1000’s of artifacts at your fingertips.  My project was wading through a mountain of glass trying to find pieces that were unique.  It’s like playing with a jigsaw puzzle.  Lots of fun for me.
