Here is my Collage for this weeks Three Muses Challenge..Victorian Elegance.
My haughty lady is surrounded with her sparkling paste brooches, her scented note cards, and a feather from her peacock feather fan. To me she is the epitomy of Victorian elegance.
We tend to think of this sort of romantic image of Victorians. Unfortunately there was another side to the coin, with extreme poverty, terrible working conditions and child labour. Just read Charles Dickens.
