Our 15 Minutes of Fame

Andy Warhol, U.S. Pop Art Artist, or his photographer, Nat Finkelstein, said “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes”. Here is some of our 15 minutes of fame. But if we are “famous” in the past, does that give us fame-debt or fame-credit, in the future? If you get there, come back and tell us, won’t you?

Here are some links to media which mentions us, in one way or another. Is there such a  thing as bad press?  Since this page is still a work in progress,  some of the links are not links, you’ll have to copy and paste them yourself. It will get better!

We got pinned! This photo from the Atlantic Living Heritage Association‘s readings, as part of the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic’s commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s sinking, made it around the world on Pinterest. (Now, try to say that without apostrophes!)

Cape Breton Media Coverage included our Caper Con Shop.



An article about one of the many workshops I did on Old Family Photo Identification 

And a poster from another one

In 2010 I presented to the Acadia University Planter Studies Conference about what Nova Scotia Planters (Settlers/Immigrants/Invaders/Usurpers) wore. I also organized a Living History encampment as part of it. The newspaper coverage show my husband at our camp, and my back, in the yellow gown.

If you dig through the old newsletters of the Former Costume Society of Nova Scotia’s Newsletters, you will find a number of pieces I wrote. Later I will dig them out, but first I need to get all my hats in a row!

One of my “What People Wore” presentations  was at Parks Canada’s Fortress Louisbourg, as part of their Culture Fete. We were also featured in an article that its source tells me is no longer available, though my eyes tell me otherwise.
