This blog post will consist of a tag Elizabethany was so kind as to give to me, some ramblings and nothing-of-importance stuff, and- at the end- the final new Summer Header! (I know this post is posted a day too early- I should have given you all another day for voting, but... well, I don't have an excuse, heehee.)
So. Firstly, the lovely tag.
1. If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you like to be?
I would go to visit my dearest friend Emma Jane who lives far too far away from me. We live oceans apart. Sobbbb.
2. What is your favourite vegetable?
Calm down Naomi. Strawberries aren't vegetables.
Oh. Uh, I suppose I'd go for tomatoes. Don't tell me that's a fruit too. (I have heard people say tomatoes are fruits, but not for me.)
3. Would you rather live in a fairytale castle or a Regency mansion?
Regency mansion- indubitably.
Fairytale castles are too- well, fake. You know, pink ones with millions of flags and red rose-bushes climbing on the walls. Yeah, that's nice too- but it's a little... you know. Regency mansions are GRAND, sophisticated and buried with secrets and history.
4. If your best friend was a period drama character, who would he/she be?
Emma is my best friend and she- I think- resembles...
Emma doesn't chat quite as much as Anne, but she has a vivid imagination, loves reading, has her sort of face, is as kind as she is, is good at inventing names, and loves writing and does it well and with big words. :)
And of course, I'm Diana.
5. What is your favourite book of all time?
The Bible. First and Always. It is the book I read every evening and never ever tire of. It is Incessant, Almighty and Holy.
After that, I LOVE:
This is simply THE most AMAZING book ever. I read it in two days, finished it three days ago, and I am all awe and fasciation. Go, read it now. You will love it.
I also love pretty much anything by Lynn Austin and Lucy Maud Montgomery, including 'Wonderland Creek' (read my review here) and 'The Blue Castle' (read my review here)
That was the tag. Thanks Elizabethany, I really enjoyed answering the questions!
Now. Some rambling.
My sister Margaret lately pointed out that they made a mistake in 'the Return to Cranford.' She said that in 'Cranford' Harry had his tenth birthday and that someone said he was fifteen in 'Return to Cranford'. But you know, Tessie? Martha's child? She's not five years older than she was in 'Cranford', is she? She wasn't even born then- and in 'Return to Cranford' she looks two, not five and not even four.
I thought it was a clever observation.
I just LOVE the following gif, don't you?
(for those of you who don't know who this handsome couple is, it's Queen Elizabeth and her husband Philip in their engagement official photo-shot. Oh my, I just love this couple.)
Because I'm skipping all over the place anyway- hopping from one subject to an entirely different one- I will do it again. Change the subject. Oh yes, I recently redecorated parts of my room with Period Drama pictures. Actually, that was a month ago, but my camera didn't work so I couldn't take pictures (yes, thank you Mary).... until now. Here's a picture of my favourite corner of my room:
As you can see, it's covered with Period Drama pictures and books. :)
Oh yes, here's another picture I once made, proudly displaying my fondest love for reading, literature and books.
Yesterday I was thinking and wondering which actor/ Period Drama character I look most like. I finally decided I looked a little like Jane in 'Austenland' (which- I hasten to add- have not seen so I can't recommend it).
What's the actor's name again? Oh yes, Keri Russel.
Saaadly I don't own such a pretty Regency gown- BUT I am planning to make one for myself very soon. Yayy! I have the pattern now, right beside me as I write this. I'm planning to make one out of pink bed-sheets first, so that if it all comes to nothing and goes wrong I won't have spent my money on expensive material for nothing. If it goes well (which I definitely HOPE) I shall make a second one, with real material.
The final Header
Aaaand now, the moment you've all been waiting for (you probably skipped the 'rambling' part anyway, haha)- the most-voted-for header is...
I will put the header up on the 21st of June, which is the first day of Summer. Please excuse me if things are a little ramshackle and out-of-place in the beginning.
Thanks for voting!
