Well, it's been a busy week working on new designs, filling orders, and the usual. Not anything fun to blog about right now, but I always find some fun stuff from the nineteenth century to share with you. How about a quiz?
There were names and phrases pertaining to objects or activities used in everyday life in the 1700 & 1800's that are now obsolete. I'm wondering if you'll know the answer to some of these questions. It's interesting, if nothing else! Ponder the meaning of the following words and I'll tell you what they really were in my next post. No fair Googling the answers!!
In the nineteenth century, what was the meaning of.........
1). By hook and crook
2). A Grike
3). Made by Cat and Clay
4). A Trunnel
5). A Summer Cloth
Fun stuff! Answers in my next post. Enjoy your weekend!
