18th century shoes from the Agnes Etherington Collection, Kingston, Ontario

 I'm turning to the 18th century this week, as tonight I am off to Williamsburg , Virginia! I'm very excited to see the costume workshops. I understand they have open workshops, demonstrating millinery and   mantua making. I hope to spend some time chatting with the specialists there and comparing notes.

So I thought you'd like to see these 18th century shoes, which I saw at Queen's University in Kingston this May. I was part of a group that had a back stage tour. Very interesting. I have more pictures to share with you from that visit.

But now, I must away! See you soon.

Sounds wonderful Edwina; Take lots of photos if you can. I'm jealous. I'll be in Ottawa the following week if you are.
