Feast Gear

As you can tell by the lack of posting, we were hibernating.  Honestly,  we had a couple of mundane things pop up that took up far too much of our time. We decided to cut a few obligations in order to make time for the ones that  are more important to our family.  To the confusion of many who know us, the SCA made the cut.   It something that all of us enjoy and my thinking is that if you can get your teen to hang out with you,  you work the angle.

So as the plan is actually to make it to some events in the upcoming months,   I am trying to take things out and make an inventory of what we have and what we still need.   I had dug out the feast gear and was tallying it all on a spreadsheet ( welcome to my own special form of OCD)  when the boys and I decided it would be fun to have a Spring Feast, this evening.

Feast gear is one thing I have a lot of as I've been working on putting together our collection for a few years now, due to dancing at Renaissance Faires.   It can be done quite inexpensively.   Most of our items were picked up at local thrift shops, excepting the stoneware pottery which I bought from an acquaintance who is a merchant at  faires we frequent.   This isn't all we have, but this is what we needed for dinner.  I am sure that I will probably pick up more pieces but I think this looks good enough to be presentable.    Eventually Geneviève wants to have a go at carving some bowls and we might try wood burning some designs on the wood chargers.

I wish I were as prepared in other areas....

I am trying to remember to stay away
from clear glass as it was not likely
to be period  for us. 

Isn't this the cutest little salt pot?


  1. That's an awesome setup! And it even matches for the entire family. :)

  2. Yeah, I am sort of a nerd that way. Crazily enough, I didn't buy it all at the same time.
