Thank you ladies for the warm welcome. I recognize some of you from Victoriana Tea Parlour, where I’ve been chatting with Wilma, of late, about teas.
GospelClown: I read tons of historical romances, a genre some people don’t like. I do have some creative fiction historicals. Today, I plan to begin reading, “The House of Women” by Anne Brear. Downloaded it from Amazon Kindle as a freebie… I am a Good Reads groupie too.
Little Queen: A pleasure to meet a new lady. Yes, the era appeals to my romantic nature and ignites my imagination. And because of the Victorian period, I’ve discovered another associated “world” – Steampunk. Although a fantasy science fiction driven world, developed by the publishing trade, this new discovery further fuels my love of the period.
I am looking forward to getting acquainted with everyone on this board.
I just realized I never introduced myself here...so sorry for the etiquette error. Well, here's the intro from Victoriana Tea Parlour:
I am an old-timer to Spark People, just returning from a necessary sabbatical. I missed the interaction with others as I work from home. I am retired from corporate America and don’t miss the hour long commute (one-way), and at times, in hazardous weather conditions. No more deadlines, politicking, or one-sided diplomacy. *LOL* I live on 10 acres in southwestern Michigan, so can classify myself as a Gentlewoman Farmer; nuts and fruits mostly.
I am planning an herbal tea garden this spring; a first for me, growing herb for tea making. I love all things Victorian and just discovered steampunk which adds to my adulation. Looking forward to sharing tea-time moments with everyone.
