When we think about 18th-century military forces, we often picture soldiers carrying muskets, fifers and drummers, and generals barking out orders—in other words, men.

Yet, this is not the complete picture. While they did not enjoy the same share of glory, and their stories have often been left untold, women were also a part of army camp life.

Join us on Saturday, March 4, at 11:30 a.m. for "Tag, Rag, and Bobtail: Women Belonging to the Army" in the Hennage Auditorium at the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg. Included with Museum Admission.

Sometimes you just have to #TreatYoSelf! Fabric is ordered and a wacky 18th-century mixed print outfit (much like the example on the left) is coming soon! Blue jacket fabric is my splurge from Betina Printing. Red skirt fabric is one of the new reproduction fabrics from @colonialwmsburg.

The Rittenhouse homestead is the oldest remaining building at Historic Rittenhouse Town, dating to 1707. In those days, people got a running start to jump through the front door (at left). Made it tough to fumble with your keys when you got home from the bar. #wissahickon #alternativefacts #rittenhousetown #18thcentury #wissahickonschist #colonialamerica

当時お茶は貴重でお金がないと振る舞えなかったから
見えるところに置いて財力アピールするための
お茶入れ。

作品の配置の間の取り方だったり、タイミングがすごく好きで勉強になる
