I’m Meredith Sweetpea, an old-fashioned girl who likes old-fashioned entertainment, etiquette, and gracious living. The simpler times in life.  I enjoy entertaining friends, bygone amusements and dress-up tea parties to keep alive the time when folks would gather together in communities to share their lives and talents rather than sit home alone before their glowing television screens or video games.

This blog will entertain, amuse, and inform its readers on the joys and etiquette of Victorian and turn-of-the-century 1900s living–most practices of which are still in existence today–and the delights of tea.  We’ll harken back to the olden days and restore a sense of civility and simple old-fashioned fun to our world.  We’ll experience how to enjoy gracious living again.

Let’s discuss the modern-day etiquette and everyday challenges of today’s world, at home, with friends, in social situations, in school, and in life in general.  Share with me your questions and challenges and we’ll make this an interactive forum for exploring old ways of doing new things.

Most of all, I hope you enjoy this blog and find it helpful.

Linda Barrett (aka Meredith Sweetpea)
