    1. Debbie: Once you agree to buy tickets for the Beggar’s Banquet, you’re committed to dressing up. They have big shelves of skirts, underskirts, blouses, vests, caps for women and pantaloons and shirts and vests for the men. Everybody pulls on these clothes before going in to the dining room. (And I love your Salzburg photos!)

  1. How adorable those two little sisters are (and the older ones too) :) This would be such fun- to ‘play dress up’- I do have the East Coast and Nova Scotia on my list of places to visit and I plan to play dress up while I’m there :)

    1. Jessie: Our clothes are different because they’re from a different (later) era, and a more prosperous colony. But I love the little wooden shoes they had for the little girls.
