Mini pine rune set in the works
Okay I am OBSESSED with doing tiny rolled hems. Especially on things with sharp corners. Can I make a business doing just this? Was there an 18th century trade that involved only stitching rolled hems on squares and rectangles? Handkerchief craftswoman? Skilled apron monger? Dish towel spectacular? Lmao okay I am done now
Dec. 9. #christmascraftcalender The Viking arrow. In 1914 near Naumnlauskollen, Norway. An arrow appeared in a melting patch of ice. It was made of birch, it was barreled and with a broad leaf shaped iron point. It was dated to the vikingage. Length was 69,5cm. My arrow shaft is made of birch with the same measurements as the original but I didn’t have the same point so I put another type on but from the same period. The point is glued with pine pitch and tied with sinew. The sinew was covered with hide glue. The feathers was supposed to be glued on with hardened tar, but somehow it wouldn’t stick, so we cheated and glued with normal modern feather glue. For the string to tie it with I used some hand spun waxed linen that my girlfriend @lbmbirds made especially for this purpose. Super thin 2ply and surprisingly strong. I gave it a coat of tar and shellac mixed together. To protect the string (and to cover the moderne glue 😉) and now it looks like it would have done if I had glued it like I originally planned. It’s a super cool arrow. It’s quite time consuming to do it this way, but very nice to try and go all the way. I wouldn’t mind making more arrows like this :-) . . #vikingbow #vikingarrow #traditionalarchery #primitivearchery #arrow #livinghistory #vikingreenactment #bowmaking #birch #pinepitchglue #hideglue #handspun #glue #feathers #viking #vikinglife #vikingarcher #bowman #christmascrafts #christmascalendar
Cold night on Fort Point Channel for our final dress rehearsal! #huzzah #tossthattea #december16 #bostonteaparty #bostonhistory #livinghistory
Theodosia Hawkins-Magill 1743-1817, one of the family. The costume was directly inspired by the gown she is wearing in the portrait you can see on the wall at the top of this photo. I’ve waited 4 months for the opportunity to take this photo. Well worth the wait. Thank you @karen_fitzsimons you looked perfect! 😘 Swipe to see closeup of the portrait. #livinghistory #portrait #18thcentury #castleward #theodosia #imadethis #18thcenturyinteriors

Went to the annual Tea Burning event in Lexington today. Anna performed with the William Diamond Jr. Fife and Drum Corps. Was a bit cold, but the hot cocoa and bonfire certainly helped. 😊

Reenactment Battle of Stalingrad - Soviet female fighter of 35°division Guard-Fusilier on September 1942. During the war, soviet used to conscript even the women for their armies. In the soviet storyography about the ww2, there are a lot of female soldiers, ace-fighters and even tank drivers who distinguished themselves. They also gave proof of bravery and spirit of sacrifice and Filottrano44 wanted to hommage them with this setup wear by @beatrisapucalev. A man and a woman should love themselves, not killing each others. We want to remember these female-fighters who were part of Red Army and gave their life into a war where there was not change to escape out, expecially into russians front. #reenactment #reenacting #reenactor #reenactors #secondworldwar #secondaguerramondiale #rievocazionestorica #picoftheday #photography #soldier #femalesoldier #battle #ww2 #wwii #ww2reenactment #ww2reenacting #ww2reenactor #worldwar2 #ww2history #ww2photos #instagood #followus #stalingrad #redarmy #livinghistory #worldwartwo
I'm looking so much forward to the annual viking winter games against our good friends in Österhus vänner! We wear our viking clothes, play, compete and have fun in the deep winter forests of Jämtland. Then, in the evening there is a blot followed by a big feast and a great party. This picture is from the very first year we were visiting them at their long house on Norderön, Sweden in 2012. It was 39 minus degrees Celsius. That's like 38 Fahrenheit or something 🙈❄️ It was freezing but oh so nice and fun! Can you read the sign? Have you tried being outside playing in the snow in your viking clothes? #viking #reenactment #vikingreenactment #reenactor #reenactment #historicalliving #livinghistory #historical #archeology #vikingage #runes #vikingrune #winter #vikingwintergames #winterviking #forest #cold #snow
It’s Christmas Card Day! The tradition of sending Christmas cards began in Britain in the early 1840s thanks to John Callcott Horsley and Sir Henry Cole. Christmas cards first appeared in the United States in the late 1840s, but they were very expensive. Of course, the tradition of sending cards grew in popularity as more and more people embraced celebrating Christmas and technology allowed for cards to be mass produced and therefore cheaper to buy. . Do you send Christmas Cards? . See some old-style Christmas cards in the Printing Office during Christmas by Candlelight at Old Sturbridge Village. . #christmasbycandlelight #christmas #holidays #oldsturbridgevillage #livinghistory #museum #sturbridge #massachusetts #newengland #igworcesterma #igmass #igmassachusetts #ignewengland #igersmass #historymuseum #history #MuseumLife #makehistory #christmascards
The playroom at the Doctors house at Brand Park in Glendale is full of the best sorts of creepy dolls. This playroom belonged to Dottie, the daughter of one of the four doctors that once used to call this house their office and home. People have heard phantom footsteps leading into the playroom and I have to say....it was creepy as hell. I’ll be posting a lot more about this house soon and it’s history because considering it was built in the 1880s, was a doctors office, experienced the flu pandemic and once housed a tragic silent movie stars life...it’s full of macabre tales. But for now; I hope y’all enjoy this pic. 🖤💀👻

Here’s a little view in motion of all my new 1816 pieces. The spencer and it’s coordinating petticoat (the petticoat hooks to the spencer waistband), the bonnet, and the muff that I knocked out on Friday night. I’m so in love with this outfit that I was sad to chance out of it into my evening wear! I feel just like a fashion plate!

So I got distracted on my way somewhere else and spotted something I really had to make a detour to see... I've been fascinated by #redevil3450 for a long time and finally managed to get sortof close to her. She is absolutely gorgeous. I don't think I've ever been so intimidated by the scale of a single piece of "machinery". So much for "Narrow" gauge. Goodness knows what it's like when she's breathing . . . . #reddevil #steam #steamlocomotive #steamtrain #livinghistory #ceresrailcompany #capegauge #livingmachine #retro #travelinstyle #southafricanrailways #class26
Etching paper with GlowCat to make some custom tags for my newest historical re-enactment project. The laser will cut them all out on the next step.
