I've been tagged by the lovely Margaret at The Earthly Paradise to do an archive meme. Well, there's not much archive here yet, but today was a stressful, blizzardy day, and I'd welcome another chance to not have to do something new for today's post!
First, however, I do have to direct your attention to a new website I found last night, vaguely related to the week's beginning discussions on Pre-Raphaelite hair. Rapunzel's Delight is a website I know I'll spend much time enjoying and exploring. The galleries there are stuffed to the gills with vintage Victorian and more recent-era photographs of beautiful long-haired ladies. There's something fascinating about seeing a Victorian photograph. It more directly hits me that this is not just an archetype of a mythic figure, like in art, but it's a real person who lived and breathed.
Now, on to the meme....
Here are the instructions:
Link 1 must be about family. Link 2 must be about friends. Link 3 must be about yourself, who you are… what you’re all about. Link 4 must be about something you love. Link 5 can be anything you choose.
I think this is a great way to circulate some of the great older posts everyone has written, return to a few great places in our memories and also learn a little something about ourselves and each other that we may not know.
Post your five links and then tag five other people. At least TWO of the people you tag must be newer acquaintances so that you get to know each other better….and don’t forget to read the archive posts and leave comments!
Of course for my entries I have to be a bit liberal in my definitions, but bear with me.
Link #1...family. I'm going to link to my blog post about William Morris and his selfless love he exhibited. This was my entry for Valentine's Day, and I give a nod to my beloved fiancee at the end of the post.
Link #2...friends. For this I'll link to my post about Grace Notes Photography. Aurora, the owner, is a new but dear friend of mine.
Link #3...Myself, who I am. Well, mercy...this whole blog is about that! But I'll link to my blog from this past weekend on Pre-Raphaelite tresses, since I've modeled myself after these lovely ladies since I was a mid-teenager.
Link #4...Something I love. I can has William Morris Interiurz?
Link #5....Anything. Well, I was pretty pleased with my blog about Artistic Dress....and it inspires me to dare to be different.
