Really tho.
This speaks to me on so many levels - not least the hairline thing (have you SEEN my fod).
They used to say my Nana could start a fight in an empty house and they say that about me as well. Thoroughly unjust assessment of my multifaceted personality and all its charms if you ask me but I know I’ve got some streak of something in me.
When I do my family history not only is it like a giant entertaining geeky puzzle, but I also like to imagine them as people. 
I talked this week on the blog about Emma (link in bio) and how, as I learned more about her life, I tended to fill in the blanks and project onto her a version of a person I felt comfortable with. I wanted to feel like I understood her life I suppose.
What’s the point in history if you’re not gonna learn from it, right?
I already know I come from a long line of bad bitches and this week I forgot myself and let someone make me feel a certain way over something trivial which is laughable.
I think I mentioned in part 3 of Emma (or maybe part 4 which is more or less finished and coming out soon) that we don’t have a wealth of photographs in my family. We didn’t have the money for photography. So I can’t go back in time very far visually but I do know what my great grandmother looked like who was born the same time as Emma, and I know that I am like her. I might not wear a pinny and a shawl but I know I am like her. I’ll write about her one day. It won’t be as long as Emma’s story, but it’ll be a little snapshot of women’s history and whether character traits really can be passed down through the generations 🤔

Don’t forget Part 3 is up on the blog (link in bio) if like me you have to go back 150 years to find someone you remotely give a shit about.
I don’t know what I’m going to do when I’ve finished the story of Emma you know. I didn’t ever expect it to even be a two parter let alone 4.
Still, there’s plenty more to come in the final instalment which I’ve actually already written, but much like part 3 above, I’ve been hanging fire a little bit. With part 3 it was because I still lived in hope right until the very last minute that I’d get some kind of breakthrough. With part 4 it’s because I need to be careful whose toes I tread on with some of the tales I tell....
Parts 1&2 are already on the blog in the ‘Blasts From The Past Section’ if you fancy getting up to speed.
Am still in shock that anyone ever read my blog posts about Emma in the first place, let alone all the comments and messages I’ve received. It’s so nice to share it with you. Thank you ❤️

Part 3 of Emma is up on the blog now📣
Link in bio.
Featuring: St George’s Hall, The Lisbon Pub and @caroshortstay Main Bridewell.
It is LOOOOOOOOOOOONG. I am so sorry. I absolutely cannot stop myself I can chat for England.
Anyway if you have a passing interest in Liverpool, history, Black Victorians, Women’s history, Vauxhall & Scotland Road, family history, or you are just so unbelievably nosey that you’ll even read the lifestory of a woman who was born 150 years ago who has absolutely no bearing on your own life then you might just possibly enjoy this. 
I really could have gone on and on in this chapter, it really was so interesting to research and there’s loads of fun (and sad) stuff that I learned about while I was researching Emma that I didn’t even get chance to tell you about (and some stuff I already knew about, so I was all like ‘I know this! Look at me!’ to my sad self) so y’know if you’re interested in any of this geeky stuff and want to know more then hmu and I can point you to some good resources xx

4/5 Continuing our series of posts looking at female artists and makers @leightonhousemuseum today we will be focusing on Emilie Barrington. Emilie Barrington and her husband moved to the Holland Park area in 1882, taking the house next door to the Thornycroft family. Emilie was an amateur artist, and was fascinated by the Holland Park Circle. She became closely acquainted with George Frederick Watts, and was on friendly terms with many of her artistic neighbours. After Leighton's death in 1896 she was instrumental in his home becoming a museum, running and funding it almost singlehandedly until its transfer to the Council in the late 1920s. She also wrote an early biography of Leighton based on his own correspondence. Two of her paintings are now in the Leighton House Museum collection, swipe through to have a look.

3/5 Leighton House formed part of a group of artists residences known as the Holland Park Circle. These unique studio homes located on Holland Park Road and neighbouring Melbury Road were home to some of the leading artists of the day, including the Thornycroft family of sculptors. Mary Thornycroft was the daughter of the sculptor John Francis and began her training in his studio. Throughout her career she created numerous works for the Royal Family, and was hired as a tutor for Princess Louise. This bust is a copy of Thornycroft's portrait of the Princess. Mary Thornycroft also produced a bust of Emilie Barrington in bronze, another important female figure in the history of Leighton House Museum.

Victorian Women Poets offers a wide selection of the most famous female authors of the time and a sample of their work. Aside from its literary value, this collection vindicates the existence of great women poets, who, choosing similar or different themes as men, showed a farther insight into spiritual poems many times.

She cannot fade,

For ever wilt thou love,

and she be fair! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

... In long aged pencil, the inscription at the bottom of this lovely Victorian photograph reads, “About 1874”. 🥀🖤🥀

A sketch of Effie Gray, first married to painter John Ruskin (a relationship that was scandalously annulled), then to Pre Raphaelite artist John Millais. A talented artist and musician in her own right, Effie was Millais's muse, model, and mother of 8 children. However, the scandal of her annulment and swift marriage to one of Ruskin's protégées kept her from being presented at court or really accepted by society. Still, she adored Millais, blaming all her health problems in her later years on her marriage with Ruskin, and she died in 1897 at age 69 of throat cancer. Her love affair with Millais was a source of much speculation and indelicate humour amongst their social circle, but Effie proved to be a woman who sought her own happiness, regardless of the cost.

Sorry I haven't posted anything in the last few days! Been working my butt off on some character designs and trying to get better with my art in general. So here's sort of an experimental/redesign drawing I did of my characters! Tried focusing on using some little shapes here and there ☺👍

Sorry I haven't posted anything in the last few days! Been working my butt off on some character designs and trying to get better with my art in general. So here's sort of an experimental/redesign drawing I did of my characters! Tried focusing on using some little shapes here and there ☺👍 . . . . #shapes  #characters  #characterdesign  #designs  #colors  #artoninstagram  #art  #digitalart  #charliethedetective  #charliehopkins  #abigaledonnithorne  #emilietheghost  #victorianwomen  #victorianchildren  #victorianera  #oldtimeycharacters  #redesigns  #paintings 
More writing today, completing my article on how Queen Alexandra’s surviving garments revealed realities about her life that text sources alone could not do. It is a call for more historians to think about material culture - about the ‘stuff’ of life and what stories it can tell. This c 1870 vibrant tartan of Alexandra’s is currently on display at the Fashion Museum, Bath as part of the Royal Women exhibition #materialculture #royalwomen #fashionexhibition #fashionmuseumbath #1870s #1870sfashion #queenalexandra #royaldress #royalfashion #royalstyle #victorianwomen #tartandress #ballgown #dresshistory #fashionhistory #fashionresearch #fashionwriting

Regrann from @katestrasdin -  So this is the kind of picture that set me on the path to my subject on @bbcwomanshour this morning. Captions to these photographs usually deride the garments the women are wearing rather than celebrate their achievements. It is lazy history to assume that long skirts are equal to a lack of movement & that an interest in dress is frivolous......I love these pioneering women! #womenpioneers #mountaineers #victorianwomen #womenadventurers #womeninskirts #19thcentury #19thcenturystyle #19thcenturyfashion #crinolineskirts #crinoline #fashionstudies #fashionresearch #womanshour #dresshistory #fashionhistory - #regrann

My mom lives two hours away so when I got a tip from my friend, Janean, that there was a collection of Victorian goodies at an estate sale in her area, I asked my mom if she could go check it out for me. She was, of course, happy to oblige as my mom, whose name happens to be Victoria, is also a huge fan of the era--you should see her house! Today she visited me and brought what she found: an amazing Edwardian dressform, dainty crocheted finger purses, silk sachets, a hat, collars, handmade lace, gloves and more! How lucky am I?!? To top it off, she brought three vintage dolls that my friend, Connie, sent for me. Thank you guys so much for everything! The clothing you see hanging behind me is part of the collection from the 30s I have coming soon to the shop. ⚘🤗

“The Awakening Conscience” William Holman Hunt, 1853. One of the most common victorian themes were fallen women, depicted in such detail to a point that it exceeds reality and the capability of the human eye. The pre-raphaelite artist decided to emphasize the man’s possession of the un-married woman through very small details such as: the absence of the wedding ring, the symbolism of the cat harassing a small bird under the chair and the man’s discarded glove on the floor. However, the woman seems to enjoy a moment of revelation which allows the viewer to have hope for her. #preraphaelite #preraphaelites #preraphaelitebrotherhood #fallenwoman #fallenwomen #holmanhunt #victorianera #victorianart #victorianwomen #victorianwoman

It’s been an awesome year of celebrations for the Centenary of the Women’s Vote. I’ve been particularly joyful being a committed socialist and feminist so through my work I’ve named some of my more antique reproduction pieces after three of the most influential suffragists ( the less violent and radical form in the movement) First is Millicent- Fawcett. By far the most influential campaigner and feminist. She fought not only for the vote for women but to improve women’s education and to stop child cruelty. Thus the tiniest hat doff I can give as a creative woman is celebrate by dedicating her name to these vintage inspired pieces; true vintage faux pearls with antique style brass stampings

Happy Birthday Emily Jane Brontë!
BBC Breakfast even had an cameracrew at the Haworth Parsonage Museum for the bicentennial of Emily's Birth ;-) Such a great beginning of the day!

So I drew a “Victorian” lady. I really don’t know what era she’s from but I added the reference picture too. I just wanted to draw a girl because that’s what I do “best”

This week I found myself gathering artistic inspiration during an unexpected and brief adventure in the city of Boston with my sister. Our first stop was the Museum of Fine Arts. This stunning painting is a particular favorite. I love how the artist captured not just a beautiful landscape but that moment of exhilaration and danger when an adventurer steps close to the precipice of something new.

Seller’s fail. 😂 Took photos, made the listing, then decided I couldn’t part with her. Not as tiny as a gem, but still very small at 2 1/8 x 1 5/8 inches.

Marianne North (1830-1890) was an English botanist and botanical artist who traveled the world to document undiscovered plants through the medium of paint, an endeavor that was difficult, dangerous and frowned upon for a woman on her own, but also very valuable to science at a time when there was still no color photography. It was a visit to the Palm House (see my last post) that inspired her to go in search of exotic plants and paint them. A collection of 800+ of her paintings is now displayed in a building at Kew Gardens that she designed and paid for herself. Swipe to see some examples of her beautiful work, and look for the documentary titled The Incredible Life of Marianne North Through her Art and Adventures on YouTube. 🌵🌸🌿🌴🌺🌏 #mariannenorth #kewgardens #botany #botanicalart #19thcentury #victorian #victorianera #victorianwomen #femaleartist #ladyadventurer
