One happened to be the Centennial Heritage Museum that was only about 3 miles from where I lived.
As I read more I found out they had a Victorian Tea Society that meets there and often have Tea Parties as a form of a fund raiser. They were going to have a Tea Party that was free. It was their yearly way of opening up the group in hopes of getting new members.
I made reservations for not only me, but my two sisters also. I thought it would be fun if you wanted to come along too. So, let's go.
Wow! There it is. I never even knew this place was around. Where have I been?
Turns out the Centennial Heritage Museum bought it for only $1.00 from Mr. Kellogg. Can you believe it! They did have to move it to their property though so I guess that cost a pretty penny.
We ran out of time so we couldn't go through the house. But, I'll be back to take a tour inside.I love gazebos. Don't you?
What a pretty entrance into the rose garden. I love roses so of course I want to walk through here.
Roses everywhere! Smells good too.
The one she is showing here is Laura's husband and child.
She spoke for about an hour and then took questions. No one could stump her either. She knew it all. Just as if she lived the life herself.
Nope, we didn't win.
Well, my sister, Maureen and I loved this so much, we signed up to join. My other sister, Patty, on the other hand couldn't wait to get out and go home. She said she felt like she was in a living nightmare. She couldn't understand why grown women would get dressed up and play pretend.
Maureen and I were all excited and were talking about getting dresses and hats and gloves. We are looking forward to our next Tea with the Victorian ladies.
How about you? Would you ever join a group like this and play dress up and have tea parties? Or, would something like this be a nightmare for you?
Hope you enjoyed your Tea Party.
