The company was delightful, the rooms prettily decorated, and good times were had by all!
Before the gaming commenced, we all milled around the back-yard taking pictures of each other. I didn't get any of myself with my camera, but plenty of others did, and I have happily stolen the ones that I like best.

I wore my old(ish) 1820 silk evening gown, though with new jewelry and a plume in my hair.

A selection of my pictures of the evening's company-
After the card playing had died down for the evening we just sat around chatting and snacking and drinking Good Things. At one point, I pulled out my trusty drawing box, and did a quick sketch of Taylor as she sat across the table from me, lit by candlelight only.
