I have lost track of how many people I have heard say "I don't belong in this century!"  I have always felt the same way, since early childhood.
Some want to go back to the 1800s, some to the 1960s, others to Edwardian England.
Where do you feel you 'fit in?'
I think the crafts potential here is wide open. food created from heirloom plants, old fashioned beauty remedies, sew me a sun bonnet I can wear as I walk on the Oregon Trail, make me wall art in the style of good ol' Charles Rennie Mackintosh, knit me old fashioned socks, vintage greeting cards, the list goes on and on and on. Can even go back to the cave days and make me a rock tool for my garden!!
Thoughts?

Fascinating concept!  Personally I'm glad I was born when I was, otherwise I'd probably be dead a few times by now!   Cheesy

Lovely idea.  My ex-husband's best friend used to love telling me I was born in the wrong time.  And apparently to him, the wrong species.  His favorite nick name for me was, "elf".  The tops of my ears sometimes stick out from under my hair.  Making me look like an elf, and hence the nick name.  Sometimes I think he was right, w/the being born in the wrong time thing.  I am a pretty old fashioned kind of girl.   Grin

Absolutely! This would be tons of fun!  I'm thinking preserves, salves, aprons, quilts, knits, leather work, tribal jewelry, the list is endless!

Ooh yes! I have watched those tv shows where people today, love the 50s for example, so they dress like that and live like that. I wish I had the guts to do that! 
I don't know what era I would choose though? Lol
I think it would depend on whether I could be wealthy or not.....

I love this idea, the old vintage things I just think they're great. I think the 30 to 50's is great, I was born in 49" I love the 40's hairdos. I like growing up in the 50's & 60's I think that was the best of times & we won't see it again.  But this swap should be a fun!

This is a great idea, I loved 40s and 50s fashion, would have loved to be fiscally challenged during the great depression, would have been a Clan of the cave bear hunter, and am especially drawn to post apoliptc times like Stephen Kings the Stand and the Hunger Games.

This sounds like a wonderful idea. I often wish I would have been born in medieval times.  Or the 60's

I agree 100%. I think I was born, not only in the wrong time, but the wrong world. I'd have been much happier in Middle-earth, having adventures and living a simple, but fulfilling life.

That said, I would absolutely love to do this swap. Smiley

This is me too!  I've been interested in different eras throughout my life.  Right now it's the 1940s, I collect things from 1930s-1960s and have sewn a few 1940s style outfits for myself (since real vintage clothing is hard to find and expensive).  I used to love the Victorian era as a teenager and Little House on the Prairie as a child (actually, I still do).  I would love to do this swap!

So, since we have some good interest, please post about when you might be able to do this. I am thinking September...

There's a lot of good swaps lined up for August and September.  I may or may not be able to do it then.  Also, it would depend on the size of the swap. I try to limit myself to 3 swaps since that's about all I can juggle.

My local group is not as active as I wish it was however they do put on a battle of the inland seas every year I have went to a school to teach kids about the renaissance. I might be moving to clarksville and they have a lot of events. The events are not really publi reenactments like you would think of them mostly everyone is already in the group or wants to learn about the sca and most of the evens require you to be in costume too. www.sca.org
