December Theme Day - People In Their Workplace

click on photos to enlarge
For this assignment I am transporting you back to 2011 the 1750's... The Ingles Farm
This woman is teaching us how to make candles...

This man is showing us what it is like to write with a quill

This man is showing us how to BREAK FLAX

Some of you might remember Braden and Dalton demonstrating this HERE

Ok, guilty as charged...these photos are from 2011 when we attended Cabin Days At The Ingles Farm . The theme day caught me slacking again! When I was looking through my archives for someone "at work" I had come across these and noticed I only posted THIS POST so I thought it would be a-ok to post the people at work!

  1. Really great display of past workers. It's fun when it's recreated that way.

  4. How interesting!

    I'm a librarian - I'm sure if I took pictures of my work today it may not be recognizable in a few hundred years time!!

  7. I can't tell you how much I would rather have been making candles today than trying to get to grips with my new phone, being a total technophobe it was a bit eeeeeeeek! I think your 'ye olde' workers are perfect for today :)

  12. Around Fredericksburg here in Texas, there are often reenactments for living in the past. There's a permanent fixture at the LBJ Ranch as well.

  13. Really interesting, AND good pictures. You posted so long ago, new followers like me never saw them. I think it is good to re-post so new followers can see.The thing he is breaking flax on would make a dandy wooden reindeer with not much work.

  14. It appears we had the same thought! The candlemaker one is particularly eyecatching to me.

    I thought of going with a blacksmith demonstrator from this summer... but there was a glitch with the shot.

  15. I wonder if they get tired of doing these "jobs"? I would think sometimes you would just have enough of doing things the "hard way"! ;-)

  16. These events are charming and entertaining...we've one "historical" event here in Ocala with similar offerings. It was great fun and made me realize again how fortunate I was to be living where we don't have to work 24/7 just to survive and have tools and technology that serves us so well - usually.
