Modest Monday: A Modern Victorian



It has to be time for Modest Monday, right? It’s been far too long. And this post took far too long to post today/night. But iPhoto was fighting me , and WordPress was fighting me, ugh! Had to go and live life and come back later, but here we go. πŸ™‚


The day after Christmas we attended an “Anne of Green Gables” play, a birthday gift from my in-laws. I LOVE Anne. I AM Anne! We had so much fun!!! Us ladies in the group decided to dress sort of modern-Victorian in honor of the play, and this is the outfit I wore. I also wore it this past, muggy weekend for tea and church. So I have frizzy hair in the photos, but c’est la vie. Nothing I could co about it. πŸ™‚





Considering the fact that I’m such a huge Anne fan, and have so much in common with her: red hair, adoption, searching to belong, loss, etc. this is only the second time I’ve been to see the play!




My Sweetie captured some nice, genuine smiles this time. πŸ™‚




Matching cameo necklace and pale pink rose earrings from Etsy complete the vintage look.





And here is an interesting mushroom that popped up in our yard:








Are you an “Anne of Green Gables” fan?


And have you seen my other Anne themed posts HERE,Β  HEREΒ  and HERE?



Now I need a day for an Anne marathon!! πŸ˜‰

  1. I am low-tech and apologize for leaving this comment here. Can’t find where else to do it. You posted about colorizing black-and-white television. We never had such a thing, but I distinctly remember it being advertising in home merchandise catalogs. The description was lots of fluff, but the illustration clearly showed three horizontal bands of blue, red, and green. I think blue was on top for sky, green below for trees or grass, and red in the middle almost by default. As I said, we never had one, but there is no doubt in my mind that they existed as you remember.
