So do it

Yesterday I took the time ti watch the bedroom-part of the series...
... and learned things not only about bedding but also where some sayings are coming from, e.g. "sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite", "hitting the sack" and I think "coming out of the closet" could also origin there (even if not mentioned).
Looking forward to watch the history of the other room

Smile Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater

or the evolution of bathrooms...

Yep, finally had time to watch the next part of the series 'If walls could talk'

Very interesting and maybe a new destination for all bathroom researchers?
Stoke-on-Trent shall have the largest collection of loos

And for the proverb (title of this post) it's origin is from around 1500 at Germany but as Lucy showed it could also be used at around 1900/1950 after a family bathing day

Smile Kitchen - heart of the home?

How lucky I wasn't a scullery maid at Victorian times ...

... to follow my Sydney Vista theme of the day (Eating) I watch the kitchen part of the series "If walls could talk".

Interesting how the location & function of the kitchen varies not only through periods but from upper-class to middleclass to poor.

Again a good help for research on periods kitchen at dolls houses, I think.

Smile Development of the "fireplace"

or The Living room

Yep, just watched the last part of the series

And learnt that the "Living room" had a lot of different names (and functions) throughout history:
Great Hall - Withdrawing room - Drawing room - Parlour - Great chamber - Front room - Lounge - Family room...

...but we ended up as we started in front of a fireplace (even if it's now called TV )
