A Hundred Years Ago

This could have been me 100 years Edwardian/Victorian lady.

Or maybe a Medieval lady in Shalott:

Went out walkin' through the wood the other day
And the world was a carpet laid before me
The buds were bursting and the air smelled sweet and strange
And it seemed about a hundred years ago

  1. I wish! Is it so much to ask to be a character in a Jane Austen novel?

  2. Not too much to ask at all! So who would you be?
    Me - Anne Elliot

  3. Cool pics in this post (especially the medieval one). Also dig the new header at the top of the site. Nice!

  4. Awww, Anna, I love these ladies. Some of my favorite images from the 19th century are the ladies - they look exquisite in their dresses, their hair done up, with bouquets or kittens or tea or books. Sigh. Your new header is gorgeous, too!

  5. Thanks, I am glad for the feedback on the new banner header - I was unsure if I liked it well enough to keep it - It is growing on me, though!

    If I could only step back in time, even for one day...I would! Like "Lost in Austen" only not so complicated ;)
