Happy Birthday Georgie!

On this day in 1757 Miss Georgiana Spencer was born. If we were lucky enough to have her most fabulous Grace with us today she would turn 251 today. I am celebrating by working on my Picture Hat and avoiding the heat. However, a true celebration worthy of Georgiana would consist of a lot of drink and gambling so I encourage others who don't live in the middle of nowhere to go out and celebrate!


  1. Reason #251 why you need to escape CT, to celebrate georgies bday in high style

  2. I just found this blog and I am absolutely in love with it. Ever since reading Amanda Foreman's amazing biography, I've been fascinated by the late 18th century, and this blog has made me squee aloud.

    Out of curiosity, would you ever consider doing a post on the slang Georgiana invented? I've been trying to research it on my own and meeting with little to no luck finding anything besides the fact that she came up with them.

  3. Oh my goodness, the awesomeness of your comment is making me squee aloud! I would definitely considering doing a post about that! Now that you have mentioned it, it will probably become something for me to obsess over.
