Catching up with 18th and 19th Century Portraits of Children

Oh my it has been many days since my last post!  I missed Christmas Monday and Thanksgiving Thursday! I have been cleaning out the garage and back patio.  All the stuff/junk has been tossed out or put away. It feels so good to go out there now. In the garage I found more old college textbooks to recycle. College was years ago and I can not imagine why I still had them. Next gardening. Now this finally did me in. Removing 30 year old ivy plants was so rewarding but hard work. And then yesterday was the most wonderful rainy day. Two cups of hot cocoa and lots of warm tea it was so cozy. Both my kitties wanted to sit on my lap all day long(at the same time)
 Now it is Sunday and time to get blogging.  Today is a day for beautiful old portraits. A real variety of children's clothing from different eras.
Thank you for visiting. Stay warm and dry, Louise

Very Victorian

Love this one. How sweet she looks.

Not sure of the date but it looks French 1770ish. Wonder what they really wore to play in.
