PINK SATURDAY AND THE LIFE OF A VICTORIAN SCHOOL TEACHER
Today we are in the Pink Saturday mode and loving it. Thank you Beverly for hosting this amazing event. Amazing because 'so many' Pinkies join in the fun with the color pink. We visited an outdoor/indoor museum and even in the the early Victorian times ladies liked pink. You probably guessed we were in Momtrose, Colorado.
It all starts like this...
This home where the Victorian teacher lived, is over 100 years old.
The school house where she taught 12 grades. These buildings were moved to this location.
The bedroom with the sweetest pink and white quilt. Everything is authentic in this building.
A few of her clothes. Notice the wallpaper which was recopied exact. Some pink there too.
Wash stand and chamber pot. Three cheers for modern bathrooms. LOL.
This home has only two rooms. I love the settee.
A wood burning stove. The stenciling is original but redone.
To the right is a cook stove for wood or coal.
Check out her vacuum cleaner. The stove was weird.
Her working and dining table. An oil lamp. How did that vacuum cleaner work???
She was a Pinkie. Notice the dishes and even the glass oil lamp. She had some pink attitude.
Do you see the color pink?
Awwww, pink bunnies. Definitely pink attitude.
Can you read these rules? Who would want to be a teacher back then?
Be sure and visit as many Pinkies as you can at How Sweet the Sound.
Remember this is preposted and we are camping. See you in a week
