  1. Love the floral boots and the Ralph Lauren shirts!!

  2. I used to watch Anne of Green Gables on PBS after I met you and you told me about her. I am pretty sure my sister had a dress made out of the same fabric that your skirt was made out of.

  3. That was actually one of the first things I ever watched with Daisy was the very same string of production from your clips. It was amazing that the producers waited for the actors to grow up to produce the later story.

    Daisy now found Road to Avonlea which is based on the same universe, the actress protraying Marillia makes a cameo and so does that lady who plays Rachel Lynde.

  4. that is such a lovely post, Teddi! your childhood photo is the cutest and I can see a lot of Ralph Lauren pieces here. my mom likes Ralph Lauren's fashion very much but I think they don't sell RL here in Estonia at all.

  7. Oh I love this 19th century style ! The floral boots are amazing !

  8. Oh how I love Anne of Green Gables, and while that RL blouse is a stunning take on the school marm chic, I hope Victorian fashion does not come back into style in full force!

    You did a beautiful job capturing the wide-eyed innocence in your drawing!

  9. Hi Ted! Well .. I love clothes and I love Vintage clothes vitorianas.Eu went on an exhibition of Impressionism ... and I'm full of ideas' to make new clothes!

  10. I've never watched that film because I've never had the chance to read that book and I can't watch movies before reading the book.. it's sinful!
