Details of swap:

Do you love the Victorian Era, or want to learn more about it? Are you inspired by the clothes, the tea, the literature, and the explosion of scientific and philosophical thought? Sherlock Holmes, Charles Darwin, fascination with Egyptian archaeology and the "Far East," colonies around the world, Charles Dickens, the invention of photography, obsession with disease and cleanliness, electricity, phrenology....the sources of crafty inspiration are endless!

This swap will include crafts inspired by the Victorian era; its past-times, fashions, and decorative styles, and also modern offshoots, like Steampunk. These could include crafts that are classically and authentically Victorian (embroidered handkerchiefs, or decorative pictures made from sea shells or hair), or crafts inspired by the fashions or tastes of the time (funky spats, felted tea cakes, tea cozies).

We will be crafting three items: One large, one medium, and one small (or the equivalents). You may also include optional little extras (crafted or non-crafted), as discussed with your partner.

Bookstorebabe - I hope you can do it! I made the swap a half a week longer, so hopefully it will work out.

Hmm. Delicate china, tea,lace, cameos and jet,nature journals & nature crafts in general, Sherlock Holmes(yeah!),gentlemen-and lady! adventurers, and, of course, Steampunk.
I'll wait until the last minute on signups, and if I'm caught up enough...seriously, I'll lurk before I overextend myself. But this does sound so cool.

I love Sherlock Holmes, and anything to do with tea, and the fabulous clothing and the flowery writing styles, and Victorian boudoir (hee hee!), and definitely the clothes! I loved the 1900 House PBS documentary. I'm also hoping to find a swap partner as fascinated by Cabinets of Curiosity as I am! I also want a partner I can make a fabulous _________ that I just found a pattern for!

I'm watching the Beatrix Potter biopic as I write this, too! Smiley
