My day was lovely. Not only did I get out of the house but I got to dress up in Regency attire and have tea with my darling "Auntie" Tina & partner in costume crime sadievale. A new tea shop opened downtown so we went to check it out.
Fredericksburg has a charming and decent tea room at last - I'm in shock! Pinkadilly was fun. The tea was properly brewed, the food nicely presented and quite tasty, and the price very reasonable. The atmosphere was really charming with tasteful china decorating the walls and windows with the walls painted a cheery pale pink. I'll be back! In fact Aubry, I'm thinking maybe we should stick close to home in our site-seeing on Saturday and check out their luncheon menu... *wink*
I wore my silk embroidered dress, this time with my long golden pearl necklace, matching earrings and a new orange silk ribbon in my hair. I wasn’t in the mood for camera work so I let sadievale take all the pics. I'll post them when I get copies. Until then you'll just have to take my word for it that we looked smashing and that my hair turned out especially cute this am. I do love Regency hair.
After tea, S & I talked costumes and concocted some very cunning plans for new caps & our coaching days outfits. It was great fun. So much so that I really wish I could just start on the CD outfit but the Poe comes first. I might go work on it a bit right now, although I'm tired from the day's excitement. I need to get cracking soon though or I'll be naked next weekend!
