Creation is satisfaction.

 I feel more accomplished after creating something with material rather than providing a service. I love construction on all levels- sewing, knitting, crafts, furniture, roadwork, buildings, and public infrastructure. My friend lives next to concrete factory and to me that is the best view I could have in NYC. Watching the piles of gray and brown dust deplete and replenish then, transformed to serve a definite purpose. There is always something, very real, literally concrete, being created.

I’ve seen a few fashion posts trying to expand the “Marie Antoinette is not Victorian” rant, but this stuff can get complicated, so here is a semi-comprehensive list so everyone knows exactly when all of these eras were.

Please note that this is very basic and that there are sometimes subcategories (especially in the 17th century, Jacobean, Restoration, etc)

And people wonder WHY I complain about History/Art History periodization. Note how much overlap there is to the above “eras”, and how many exceptions and extensions there are to these categories.

Oh, and by the way…

Because you wouldn’t want to be historically inaccurate.
