The series of Keeping Up Appearances tackles some of the thornier social issues of mid-20th century America, inspired by text from a 1954 book on etiquette. Imagine women chain smoking in offices, tipping 25 cents for good service, showing interest in a potential marriage partner
or even giving boys names to girls! All the work in this series incorporates heirloom linens.
