A couple weeks ago CVD did a dance performance at the Salem Athanaeum for the Dickens Fellowship, at an event called "Tea for Mommy, Me, and Teddy." So we threw together a last minute Teddy Bear's Picnic choreography, put on some cute early 20th century outfits, and danced in the lovely back garden area. Of course, I had just gotten over the worst, most feverish parts of my flu at this point... so don't hold that against me! I put my hair up in delightfully silly puffs. Julia brought her charming British bear. We hit the town to get some lunch. Of course the shocking bit is at the very end of the post.

Every time I drop off the face of the earth, I never know how many excuses to give. Let us just say that I had a massive flu followed by a massive cold, and have been wrapped up in other things. But quick, let's have pictures instead of excuses! Orchard House, home of Louisa May Alcott and model for the house in her famous book Little Women recently celebrated its 100 anniversary as a museum. To celebrate, CVD dressed in 1912 clothing and did a charming dance performance. I wore the dress I made by the Titanic Weekend, plus a straw hat an a silly hair curl. I was feeling sort of Mary Pickford-ey, although I think she always does more curls.
