Resource Roundup - Lots of Little Things Today

Most of these links will be helpful if you write historical fiction of any type. But there are other genres that would find a couple of these links helpful, too.

Need to know about vintage hats, anyone? http://vintagefashionguild.org/fashion-history/the-history-of-womens-hats/

Or how about the parts of furniture? When you need that illusive synonym this site can be very handy. Don't forget to check out the categories on the side. http://www.props.eric-hart.com/resources/parts-of-a-chair/

Struggling with how to describe your heroine's purple dress from 1862? Or simply need a dress to throw on her? Check out this site: http://www.antiquedress.com/gallerymuseum1new.htm

This is a LONG list of internet sites that do reviews of books. Great promotion opportunities here! http://authorautobahn.webs.com/reviewers.htm

I love the food timeline found at: http://www.foodtimeline.org/fooddecades.html

And here are a few links for design elements. Whether you need a background for your website, book cover, or whatever.

I played for way too long with this tartan creator.

Here is a reflection maker: http://www.reflectionmaker.com/

A Stripe Generator: http://www.stripegenerator.com/

And a navigation tab generator: http://www.tabsgenerator.com/

If you are designing your own website GRSites.Com has a ton of helpful backgrounds and other nifty stuff. This link goes to their huge database of background textures, but don't forget to explore the other offerings on their site - there's LOTS there. http://www.grsites.com/archive/textures/

And that's it for today, folks. Have a super week. And if you have some other nifty websites to share along these lines, feel free to do so in the comments.
