I have my feet in two worlds. I’m a typical 21st-century woman; I listen to Spotify, watch YouTube videos on my iPhone, bank online, and cook dinner in a microwave. But unlike most people who do those activities…I wear petticoats to work. Every morning I walk into the 18th-century world of Colonial Williamsburg—a world where ladies courtesy when they enter a room, wear bone stays for bust support, powder their hair for special occasions, and by all means, keep their elbows covered in public. It’s a world that doesn’t always make sense, but the more I learn about it, the more I understand its complexities. I conceal my electronic devices, iced lattes, and lipstick for eight hours each day because I want to help unlock in people a sense of curiosity about worlds they don’t understand. Maybe that means getting them to appreciate and value the 18th century world, or just think in a different way. Somehow, I think this kind of understanding is greatly relevant in all worlds…and I don’t think there’s an app for that.

Hosteen Nez Basa, a Navajo woman from New Mexico, was convinced her son would die while serving in World War I. She made this blanket for his burial. When he returned from the war alive, she donated it to the Red Cross for a fundraising raffle. It raised close to $1,500 in war relief. 🇺🇸 #MothersDay #WorldWarI #TextileTuesday #Patriotism #AmericanHistory
