Welcome!
Take a (virtual) seat.  I have so much I want to share with you!
  ... in presentations ...
I'll come and speak for your class or group:
Go to my "Talks and Presentations" page.
... in supplemental reading lists ...
If you're a student, teacher, or parent and want some good reading suggestions in the genre of children's literature:
Go to my "Twig-is-Bent Schoolhouse and Library" page.
... in advice and opinions ...
I'm posting recommended reading lists and some blog-like essays of opinions on various topics ... on "The Salon and Reading List" page.
... with original artifacts and garments ...
Soon as I can overcome some technical challenges, I'll be posting photos of original garments in my collection:
On the "Museum" page.

...but I won't be posting pictures of me ..
.
and that's definitely not me in the picture at the right!
It's a photo from an original carte de visite, one of two dozen in the portofolio of a mid-19th century actress.  If you want to know who really is the sponsor of this website,
