Dear Anne, I found your website by using
I am presently working on a crazy quilt, my first effort at a quilt. I was
looking for victorian images, and yours are wonderful! I can see that it
must have taken a long time and much effort.
The site is done in such a beautiful way, and feels as if I stepped back in
time, if it weren't for the fact that I am sitting in front of my computer!
Thank you for the inspiration!

Jeanine O'Neill. 24th July, 2002

I can't begin to tell you how very beautiful your web-site is, I enjoyed it so very much. I'm in the process of making a scrapbook of victorian cards, I so love them.

Anne, What a beautiful website. Such wonderful children.
And Isabelle Lily. Such a beautiful name. Recently we took
a trip to Norfolk. We were there to attend a wedding in
Norwich of our exchange student. I did not attend a girls
school. But my parents sent me away at 18 to live with my Aunt and Uncle in Paris, France. At the time I hated them.
But now I appreciate their sacrifice. I was able to travel
to Bosnia when visa's were first issued. And I also saw Venice and Switzerland. We took the ferry from Bar, Italy to Yugoslavia. How I wish I could see Budapest one day. It looks so old and lovely. Your cottage is lovely. My grandmother was born in Oxford, England. And she gave me her very own copy of 'Water Babies'. How lovely to find another person who can quote from my favorite Fairytale. My family lives in Florida and Colorado.
