About

Welcome all visitors to this site! I hope you enjoy looking at this site and finding all the information you need to live out your Victorian dreams!

Our Story

Having watched my mother-in-law, who hailed from Stratford-upon-Avon in England and who loved everything Victorian and old, you know, antique, I was motivated to start this site in her honor. She was an avid miniaturist and her passion was to fill doll’s houses with everything Victorian and would spend hours doing research to make sure she got the clothes, era, décor and everything else spot on.

Her passion as become my passion. Not only is it interesting historically, but it can also be great fun to fill your home with character items or dress your baby in that Victorian christening gown!

It was an era of good quality, often hand made items, when it didn’t matter how long it took to make something, as long as it was good quality.

Helping Modern Day Victorians Find What They Need

It’s sometimes frustrating to find what you need.  Might it be information about the Victorian era?  Looking for an antique Victorian ring? What about looking for Victorian bathroom fittings?  The perfect Victorian pudding or recipe?  Toys from yesteryear for kids today?  This site will provide the answers you’re looking for.

Goals of This Website

Mostly, our goal here is that this site is a place to relax, have some downtime, find new ideas and enjoy some happy times reading and playing and looking at some wonderful pictures of Victoriana. Victorians were known to appreciate, actually expect, good quality items and I intend to do the same with this site, so all reviews, items, décor ideas, etc. will be of the best quality.

Enjoy every moment on our site!

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,
