Hey you!
(waves)
I am honored you stopped by!

 I am a twenty-something blogger who has had a small space on the internet since my early teens, but have claimed this particular blog since I was 16. This blog has changed and grown, morphed and blossomed much since then! It is my prediction, it will continue to do so.

(Outfit from 2016)
I post about historical sewing, classy outfits, my fondness for tea .....

However you will also find deeper posts about my faith and personal growth. Prayer, bible-study, my church and immediate family make up a huge part of my life.

I am surrounded by some great friends and am blessed with a large, extensive family.
We are big, loud and find any excuse to hold a cook-out or go to dinner....

I am a lover of beautiful things and hot cups of tea.
I adore classic poetry, fluffy dogs and audio sermons.
My favorite book and film is Jane Eyre. 
I am redeemed by the Grace of God. 
I prefer something old rather than something new.

I am learning, reaching and growing everyday.
I do not like to stand still.
I seek above all else to run my race well.


This blog has seen many major turning points. In February of 2014 I lost my first rescue dog Molly. 
In April 2014 I adopted my handsome fellow, Olaf. 
You will see much of his fluffy face.....

My favorite era used to be the Regency Era. I started out making Regency outfits and have read all of Jane Austen books.  I will always love this era for sure.

As 4-5 years ago, I developed a deep interest in the Civil War. I enjoy not only learning about civilian life, but also about battles and generals.
I love attending historical events, traveling to battle sites and reading boring history books that are several inches thick.

I danced at a local folk dance studio as a child, and then quit for 10 years. As of January 2014, I started dancing again. This was such a wonderful thing, and I am happier and healthier than I ever have been before!
I dance Traditional Mexican Folk, or Ballet Folklorico.

I hope you stick around and enjoy reading my blog!
I always love comments too.

Blessings and much love,
~Lexi
