I just popped in to share some photos of a fabulous tea at the
Oregon Ohio Historical Society and Museum.
The Oregon Historical Society holds 2 teas a year
honoring First Ladies.
Even though this lady was never a "first lady" she was the very first lady
to ever have her name on the presidential ballot; her name was Victoria Woodhull.
Much to my surprise she lived a very public and colorful life.
This tea seated 48 ladies, with 2 seatings held a day apart.
My sweet friend Betty played the part of Victoria Woodhull and shared
her rags to riches life story with us.
She did an amazing job!
All ready for the lovely guests to arrive!

I am sure a wonderful time was had by all!
Hope all of you are having a wonderful Wednesday!
