Stepping Back In Time Part 3!

 
The men weren't forgotten either.
Can you believe these are slippers for a man!
There was a collection of "Mrs Beeton's" books.
The Book of Household Management.
That little iron is only about 3 or 4 inches long!
Time to do the vacuuming!
Fashion magazines.
This is a year's worth of 1800's fashion magazines 
that have been bound into a book.
This cottage has been embroidered with hair! They would collect hair from the family and get different colours.

I hope you've enjoyed the tour of this wonderful 
collection of fashions. I certainly did!
Don't forget to head over to Mel's blog to see more wonderful pieces of the collection.
