I've always liked the idea of a housewife. Not a soccer mom (not saying I don't like being one), but a homemaker. It seems that's what women were.
Durham Museum recently. I can't wait to go back sometime when I am on my time and don't have any responsibility but to leave before they lock the doors for the night. The museum is the former Union Station of the UP railroad. It houses some incredible history that is a permanant part of the museum and some amazing exhibits that change. Part of the appeal I think was that it wasn't Egyptian history or California history that I was walking past...it was Nebraska history.

THIS DOES NOT APPEAL TO ME:
AND ESPECIALLY NOT THIS: (although if everyone was wearing this, no woman would have been able to ask her husband "Does this dress make my hips look big?" Nice camoflauge I guess!)
This one is pretty...and seems a little less time-consuming to get into...love the hat!
However, I could go for this one...again with the era that I'm drawn to...this is earlier 40s. Jeans are great, but really, I think it would be fun to wear dresses/skirts and hats and gloves! Probably only because I don't have to! :) I'm thinking that a party needs to happen where everyone has to dress in a past era...80s are SO NOT INCLUDED! Maybe just one or two decades.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time daydreaming while herding 8th graders. It was a very filling and gratifying day.
