Getting back to my Dallas trip in March. On Saturday we visited a log cabin village in regency outfits. We were a little early time-period-wise, but it was a fun place to take photos - and actually really interesting to visit. Some of the log cabins (which were moved here from elsewhere) had a lot of history to them. And they were doing living history things like showing how spinning was done - one cabin was cooking something that smelled SO good I wished I could have eaten it. There was also a folk band playing in one of the buildings. We danced and entertained them so much that they wanted a group photo with us!
In this house, the family had an upper level which the kids slept in - there was no ladder, they had to climb up the furniture to get up there. Once, Native Americans came and the family hid up in the loft, and with the floorboards pulled over to cover it, they never knew there were people up there, so they escaped any harm.
You can see where they hid here:
I'm in love with Jen's little black cap!
Merja's gorgeous hand-made gloves - and this was, I believe, the less nice pair. Look at those tiny stitches! They were beautiful!
Ha - this one needs Jen's photoshopping skills to remove the apartment in the background!
This was the cabin that smelled so good - I forget now what they were cooking. But here's some bread:
