It’s challenging to keep up a “period correct” portrayal. But for us, it’s easy too! The difficult part is the research to make SURE that what we use is accurate in every detail. The easy part for us is that Lehman’s has many items that are necessary to carry off the illusion of living “back then.”
Usually my garden sits pretty bare through the winter. This year I’m hoping to make the most of our growing space.
So why bother? It’s a legitimate question. I bother because the money I earn is in direct proportion to the labor I expend. The product I provide is useful and ethical and I can be proud of it. I bother because I prefer blue jeans to business suits and Muck boots to high heels.
