Another one from Isabel Bishop, because I only discovered her recently and there is something so sympathetic and gentle about her work. This so reminds me of my mother who was never without her lipstick!

Still cataloguing my compact collection. This is just a small random batch out the next box! Trying to get it done so I can decide what to take to the British Compact Collectors Convention in a couple of weeks. Forgotten how many I've squirrelled away over the last couple of years. Swipe to see close up video.

Join Virginia and Chef @DouglassWilliams of @MIDABoston as they talk about everything from collard greens, to arepas, to stories that reveal the rich and diverse roots of the cuisine of the global South. @AngieMosier 's stunning photographs are the final ingredient in this evening that will transport you from Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains to the fields and farms of Tennessee.

Secrets of the Southern Table by Virginia Willis will be available for purchase at this event. A taste of some of the recipes featured in the new cookbook will be served during a reception and book-signing immediately following the talk.

Old French Japanese-style lacquered medicine pot

My rusty French translation advises: adults 1 or 2 tablets as laxative or 2 to 3 as purgative, to be taken 2 hours after the bedtime meal or on waking with a sip of water. Children, half a tablet for laxative. It is required to chew.  Cute little find!

Our curator of Social History, Will Phillips started setting up this new case today in our Touch of Bucks Gallery. It examines the change in women's lives in Bucks over the last century. Some beautiful pieces linked to the social changes in women's roles at home, in politics and at work.

‘Silhouette: The Art of the Shadow' draws from dozens of American and European sources to create a fascinating history of this elegant and enigmatic art form, and to illuminate the compelling social history hidden behind its shadows. Emma's sumptuously illustrated book was the first major work on the art of the silhouette and includes a foreword by Lulu Guinness. (Rizzoli, 2009) @rizzolibooksuk .

Tea pads were all the rage in the 1930s in New York, especially Harlem. Here the ladies meet for “tea” in this 1876 drawing from The Illustrated Police News. Not to be confused with opium dens, but not unlike them either, tea pads were a place to go to socialize with other marijuana aficionados. In 1944, The LaGuardia Report described tea pads “....A constant observation was the extreme willingness to share and puff on each other’s cigarettes.” Tea pads may not be around anymore, but some things never change. #opium #teapads  #highlightstrippyhistory #cannabis #marijuana #dope #weed #socialhistory #cannabisculture #cannabiscommunity #cannabiscures #cannabissociety #cannabis420 #cannabisdaily #420 #cannagrowers @cannagrowers #hashish #edibles #baked #hippies

Keepsake tin V
Sadly, this tin of long-forgotten treasures contained no identifying information, however, I can date much of it's contents to the 1950s and can pretty confidently assume it belonged to woman. 
I had bought the tin with the plan to use it to keep treasures of my own, but I felt that I should honour the previous owner by leaving her keepsakes intact as a little time capsule of her history ♡

Keepsake tin III
In addition to the 1954 newspaper, this vintage tin also held a number of lace & embroidery samplers.

Top right, is one of a booklet of Commonwealth Bank threepence roll papers; Australia switched from Imperial currency to the dollar in 1966. Perhaps the owner of this tin was a kindred spirit, holding on to historical mementos. Also pictured is a bakelite(?) hair pin, the only one in this vintage tin of keepsakes.

Know most of the rooms of thy native country before thou goest over the threshold thereof. Especially seeing England presents thee with so many observables.

Whores or mothers? Harlots or sisters? Humanising and remembering those on the periphery of history at Crossbones, the final resting place of more than 15,000 medieval prostitutes. Working women, do not feel alone, history is YOUR story, not told from a throne. #crossbones #alternativelondon #socialhistory

Another sunny day, so we went to the Dudley cemetery. Favourite pastime when the day is clear and the stones photograph so well! 
Definitely another collection of photos to go into my sketch books as reference. .

While silhouettes may appear simple, that simplicity belies a rich contribution to Western social history as revealed by the Smithsonian’s exhibition, ‘Black Out: Silhouettes Then and Now’ (until March 10, 2019). The huge cross-section of society that was captured in silhouette form in 19th century is extremely rare for a singular art form: the exhibition includes portraits of US presidents and a harrowing silhouette of a young enslaved girl, accompanied by a bill of sale. | Thomas Sully, 1843, Auguste Edouart, (National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution)
2) Ledger Book of William Bache, with associated pieces, c.1803-12
3) Maibaum, 2009, Kristi Malakoff .

In the ‘60s and ‘70s, the counterculture travelled the Hippie Trail to the Far East in search of spiritualism and drugs. There were few laws then governing the use and sale of hashish, which was openly sold in coffee shops and bazaars. One of the most famous coffee shops in Katmandu was the Eden Hashish Centre. #hashish #katmandu #hippies #fareast #bazaars #highlightstrippyhistory #cannabis #marijuana #dope #weed #socialhistory #cannabisculture #cannabiscommunity #cannabiscures #cannabissociety #cannabis420 #cannabisdaily #420 #edibles #baked

I love this photograph of this wedding party- aside from the clothes, the pose and set up is no different to countless wedding photos today. I particularly like the young ladies dress. Unfortunately unknown, it was taken in Orford in Suffolk #meettheancestors

Sometimes I read a book and wish I could tell the author how their work made me feel. This is one of those books.
A beautifully furious and eloquent enquiry into what it means to grow up working class on a council estate.

This piece is from my personal collection of treasured 70s pieces.  A fantastic funky, soul sister dress with amazing astrology back-patch.  This has some TLC issues on the back of the collar, so I have to take it to the tailor to properly fix it.  #funky #funkadelic #70s #rythmandblues soulsister #astrology #cancer #watersign #embroidery #vintagepatch #danceallnight #blackpower #foxybrown #resist #socialconsciousness #socialhistory #archivalfashion  #girlpower
Remembering the lives of people who were patients in a Victorian lunatic asylum.

Thankfully asylums of this type no longer exist, however history does remain of those who sadly were committed to these places.

Mental health shouldn't be shut away like in the olden days, where it was frowned upon or ignored. Thankfully in today's society there is a lot more help and understanding of the different conditions that exist, depending on the diagnosis.

There are many Victorian asylums in British history that have been banished to the history books, but the people who were committed to these places are also forgotten. Mendip Hospital Cemetary have volunteers who care for the cemetery where former patients were buried and those volunteers are bringing the history of the patients back with the records that still remain.

if you have history like this in your area, why not volunteer and offer your services? Friends of Mendip Hospital Cemetery and many more around the UK need the help and support to keep these places of history alive for future generations.

Mental health isn't something to be embarrassed or ashamed of, from the richest to the poorest, it affects us all.
