Blog Description - Frills and Furbelows, Corsets and Cuffs, Prose and Poetry, Mittens and Muffs.
This blog is about the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries; the era of the pretty teacup! At least, this period of history saw a sharp increase in the tea-drinking of Europeans and the English, as well as the invention of the traditional English Tea Set. These centuries also happen to be my favourite parts of English and European history! The posts in this blog focus on the fashion, art, literature, poetry, customs and pastimes of the people of this time.
