Mrs Daffodil has been leafing through her scrapbooks and noting the posts that most found favour among her readers. As the year 2015 passes, here are some nostalgic favourites. Mrs Daffodil wishes her readers the happiest of New Years!
An archival post on The Angel of Gettysburg is a perennial favourite.
A look at the grewsome relics of King Charles I was also popular.
A Bashful Bridegroom was the “hit” of the June bridal specials.
Strange Flower Superstitions in Many Lands continues to fascinate.
How to Make Stage-Thunder and Lightning seems to have struck a chord.
Also popular were An X-ray Spook Party, Motto Dresses, Men who wear Corsets, Bicycle Jewellery, and, a personal favourite of Mrs Daffodil, who was able to “scoop” that person of mortuary fancies over at Haunted Ohio, The Death Drawer.
Mrs Daffodil will return to her regular level of service early in January 2016. Happy New Year!
Mrs Daffodil invites you to join her on the curiously named “Face-book,” where you will find a feast of fashion hints, fads and fancies, and historical anecdotes
You may read about a sentimental succubus, a vengeful seamstress’s ghost, Victorian mourning gone horribly wrong, and, of course, Mrs Daffodil’s efficient tidying up after a distasteful decapitation in A Spot of Bother: Four Macabre Tales.
Year’s End Felicitations, Missus D!
And to you, sir!
