Our Heber Valley Civil War September 28 - 30th, 2012.
I lost a button during the Ladies Fashion show this year and am sewing it back on to my shirt. While I was at it I used J's"housewife" to sew on two of his buttons that popped off during battle. A housewife is a small sewing kit that soldiers kept in their haversacks. I love our period lantern. I timed it, a paraffin candle takes exactly 4 hours to burn. Not only did it provide enough light for us to see by, it also provided some well needed warmth. It was cold this year.
J makes me laugh. He borrowed my parasol to keep his pale Nordic skin ghostly white. Red beards burn easily I hear.
I love her horse.
