Well done, everyone!

I which I prove that Mr Darcy smiles a lot

We finished watching the annual Pride and Prejudice 1995 this evening. I'm heart-broken. Honestly, I could watch it all again right now. Well, this time, what I noticed was how Mr Darcy keeps on doing those teensy-weensy smiles. Sometimes he barely moves his lips, but his eyes twinkle and that's his smile.

Who ever said Mr Darcy doesn't smile?!! Today I shall prove you wrong.


This took quite some time to put into each other, so enjoy it. :-)

My favourite covers

Emma and I talked on the phone about how we got attracted to pretty covers. This gave me a blog post idea! I'll be gushing about some of my favourite covers. Ready, set, go. It'll be fun.
 
 
The Lynn Austin books have some gorgeous, charming covers. Contrary to what some people say, I absolutely love the cover of my blog namesake's book, 'Wonderland Creek.' I love her dreamy dolly look and her velvet hat and silky curls and her three books. And I love the way a little village is puffing poorly in the background.
 
 
This is probably my favourite Lynn Austin book cover, which suffice to say, says a lot. I remember as a very little girl, I used to admire this cover of 'one of mummy's books I was going to read when I was older.' I crazed about this cover for years and years, and I still do, 'cos it's SO CHARMINGLY lovely.
 
 
Haha, this is a weird, fun, childhood book of mine, with Nellie Oleson as the main character. Anyway, about the cover - don't you like it? True, there's a really spoilt girl sitting on the counter (who does that, pray? (Nellie, apparently)) but still, I really like this cover. I used to LOVE it. Rave about it, stare at it. Now, I like it. A lot. Because I always will.
 
 
Another random childhood favourite. I love how the picture of the girl seems to be scratched through the American flag.
 
 
Oh my stars and stockings, what do you think of this gorgeous cover? Isn't it so speglamaglaforiously lovely? Yup, the Regency gown. Yup, the sea. Yup, pink. Yup, the bonnet. Yup, the big house. Yup, I approve. Yup, I want to read it again. Yup, I love this cover.
 
 
This is a Dutch book I often used to check out at the library, when we still lived close to one, and the main reason why I checked it out? The cover. JUST LOOK AT THE SINCERE BEAUTY OF IT. (Am I getting excited to quickly? Nah. I really, honestly adore this cover.)
 
 
The cover is just as epic as the book itself. The FIRE on the background. Those flags with the black spider, as Gretl in the Sound of Music puts it, telling you immediately that the story is a War one. The girl's determined look and beautiful hair. And then the book she's clutching... gah, this cover makes me want to read the book all over again.
 
 
This cover is awesome. Yes, you can't see any faces, but it's awesome anyway. Come on, admit it. Go on.
 
 
One has the face issue, but for me, this cover is just so SWELL. This was also one of the covers I used to admire and admire and gaze at as a little girl. The DRESS. Those little ribbons at the bodice - you know, the way they keep on getting smaller and smaller. It's just a lovely cover.
 
 
Finally we also have all those gloriously beautiful OLD vintage covers which I just LOVE. This copy of 'Little Princess' is just one out of millions and zillions of adorable old covers. LURVE.
 
What are some of your favourite covers?
Do leave a link in the comments, because you all now know that pretty covers are one of my one weaknesses!!!

Answers coming next week! Feel free to guess as many times as you wish. :-)

I am sixteen...

That's right, readers. Today, just in case you might be interested, is my sixteenth birthday. Yay! My Liesl years have started, I don't need a governess anymore, I'm in the second half of my teen years, I would be able to learn how to drive if I lived in America, and I can marry with my parents permission! Of course, I won't, haha. I'm happy to stay with all my fictional heroes for several years yet. :-P
 
So yes... Happy Birthday, myself!
 
 
Many people have birthday traditions. I definitely have. Here's a list of things I always do on my birthday:
~ I go up a year. Every birthday. I know, it's such a coincidence, right?
~ I wake up early. I can't help it, I always do.
~ I get clothes. For Christmas I get mainly books, and for my birthday I get mainly clothes. It's not a rule in our family, it's just how it always happens to be on my birthdays the last few years. I bought myself a whole new outfit several weeks ago, and now I'm enjoying them. I'm a bit of a fashion-geek. And yes, my new clothes do have some pink. And yes, also some sparkles. :-)
~ I watch Pride and Prejudice 1995!!! I've done this for four year already, and I'm going to do it every year. P&P on my birthday. It's tradition. And a very good one, too.
~ I get to spend the whole day not-doing-schoolwork. This is the best thing about being homeschooled! You can get a free day on your birthday! (And no, my siblings still have to do their work. I'm the only lucky one today. *evil grin*)
~ I have quiet birthdays. While I like people and I like talking with people, I do not like parties (unless they are family parties). So I never have birthday parties. I prefer doing it my way, quiet and just NICE. :-)
 
 
 
I intended to make a 'Period Drama birthdays' post - but all the birthdays I could think of were Bobby's one in 'The Railway Children' and Sara's one in 'The Little Princess'. And - heh - those two movies aren't exactly my favourite movies (I don't dislike them, they just aren't post-worthy) so I set off to think of something else.
 
So I decided to do something different... I'm going to have a look at all my fellow sixteen-year-olds (in the fictional Period Drama world.) Here goes!
 
 
The first that comes to mind, is, of course, Liesl von Trapp in the Sound of Music. We all know her, 'I'm sixteen years old and I don't need a governess' and her famous song, 'I am Sixteen going on Seventeen' (which I'm going to sing a lot this year because it's the only year I can sing it in without lying.) Liesl is a nice girl, dreamy, rather naïve, sweet and innocent. While I personally think sixteen is far to young to go out with boys, I really like Liesl.
 
Did you know that Charmian Carr, who acted Liesl, was not really sixteen, but twenty-one? Yes, you did. Everyone knows that 'did-you-know.'
 
 
Sweet Georgiana! She is sixteen too. The actress however, just like Charmian Carr, was twenty-one when she acted in P&P. Oh well, I suppose twenty-one-year-olds look like sixteen-year-olds. I hope that doesn't mean I look ten. :-P
 
We all know Georgiana got swept away by Mr Wickham, but we all forgive her for that because she's sorry for it and she's just a gorgeous, sweet, shy lovely girl. She's rather a lot like Liesl, I think - she has the naiveness, and she had a something with a boy that ended wrong. Of course, Georgiana is shyer. Did you know that in the book, Georgiana never talks? Not directly, anyway. I believe Jane Austen did that to emphasize how sweet and quiet she is. I think Emilia Fox did a charming job. I love Georgiana.
 
And her sister-brother relationship with Mr Darcy is so sweet. :-)
 
 
I read Gone with the Wind in five-and-a-half days. I love it to bits. I don't really know why, because all the nice characters die, and the majority of characters are annoying, including the main character. The famous Scarlett O'Hara. You know, there were times when I read the book when I thought, 'Oh, maybe she's not too bad, maybe I could like her.' But then something popped up and I perished the thought again. I do not like Scarlett, but, as Emma said in her review of GWTW, I like her just enough to care what happens to her.
 
Anyway, Scarlett is sixteen in the beginning of the book, and no, I will not follow any of her examples in my next year as a sixteen-year-old. No. way. Scarlett is not a role model and that's all there is to it. :-)
 
 
I know, Lydia is fifteen, but she's sixteen by the end so I thought I'd just pop her in - seeing as I'm in a Pride & Prejudice mood and all that. :-)
And no, Lydia, I shan't follow your example and marry at the age of sixteen.
 
 
I always seem to forget that Marianne is sixteen! But she is, so Jane Austen tells us. I like Marianne. She is perhaps a little too carried away in emotions, which I am not (only sometimes, and when I write), but despite that, I like her. Especially when portrayed by Kate Winslet, who did a marvellous job.
 
Gosh, I'm so glad times have changed with the marrying age. In the old days, marrying at sixteen was considered normal. I can't imagine marrying for some time yet. :-)
 
 
Jo March is fifteen in the beginning of the book, but I always think of her as sixteen during the majority of the book. Don't ask me why. :-) I like Jo, but I do not relate to her much, apart from the fact that we both love writing and that we have three sisters. I am not a tomboy at all, but still, I like Jo. She's a funny sweet kind of girl. I absolutely love Winona Ryder's performance as Jo. She was brilliant.
 
Meg is sixteen in the beginning of the book. In some ways I relate more to Meg than Jo, but in other ways I don't. I have Jo's creativity and lust-for-life, but I'm practical and responsible like Meg. And I have a fondness for fashion like Meg, too. :-)
 
 
Can you think of any other sixteen year olds?
What are some of your birthday traditions?
 
 

Disastrously random post

A synopsis of this post? Randomly nice pictures, gushing about it, and a little bit about my life at the moment, but not that much because I'm too occupied with the randomly nice pictures. :-D
 
 
 I love gowns. Old ones. I'm reading Gone with the Wind at the moment and t'is sheer delight, reading Margaret Mitchells descriptions of her heroines beautiful frothy garbs (and everything else, of course, because Gone with the Wind is my favourite book at the moment). My favourite one in the picture about is the pink one, of course. My favourite colour is SO officially pink. Rosy, frothy - that's what I adore to read about and to look at in movies. :-) Oh, and I also love that pink gown because it looks so nice to rub between your fingers. You know what I mean? That kind of tulle-ish fabric texture?
 
 
Girls? Please don't tell me I'm the only one that bursts into unladylike giggles when I see Gilbert clapping after Anne's sentimental poetry readings. Pluash. At our house, Gilbert's clap and proud-face gets mimicked so much. We practically die laughing on the couch when we see that bit, every time.
I don't know... IT'S JUST HILARIOUS.
 
 
 
I love finding really old gifies. I found this one lately and it just really made me smile. Of course, I thought of my best friend immediately.
 
 
I saw this picture of Winona Ryder as Jo March first about three or two years ago. I was so jealous. My hair is bountiful indeed (hehee) and people tell me my hair is really thick, but my braids are nothing like that. My! Don't you love that thick, thick braid? (Yeah, I warned you this post was going to be disastrously random. That's what you get for following Wonderland Creek.)
 
Oh!!!!
 
Ladies and Gentlemen, ladies and gentlemen, ladies and gentlemen!!! On Wednesday, I'm going to watch Pride and Prejudice 1995 again. I just HAD to share my excitement. BADLY.
 
Anyway, what I wanted to say is: DANCES. Again, I know, for I have rambled about how I love the ball-scenes in other posts before. But hey, I can't resist to write about how much a love the ball scenes again. They are just so adorable and happy and elegant and impossibly charming. I want to go to one. Really, like, mopingly badly.
 
 
BOOKS. This year, my goal is to read one-hundred books, in the least. So far, I'm on schedule, despite my busy lovely life. I'm reading nine books in January, and I'm on my sixth, so not too bad, right? Here are the ones I've already read.
 
Just Jane (by Nancy Moser) I started off the year by plunging myself into this nice booky about the life of Jane Austen. I got this for Christmas - asked it after I read three or so good reviews on it. This is a book I owe to my bloggy friends. I really enjoyed it, but it didn't blow me away like some other books did.
Longbourn (by Jo Baker) As with Just Jane, this was a first read, and I really enjoyed it! It's a retelling of Pride and Prejudice, from the servant's point of view, and such a pleasant surprise. I loved Baker's writing style, and I'll definitely be rereading it in the future.
The Book Thief (by Markus Zusak) OH. MY. WORD. THIS BOOK BLEW ME AWAY. The descriptions were beautiful, the story was so lovely, the characters were adorable (mostly), and the ending... oh, that horrible, horrible ending. I was crying and crying so much. I was moaning the whole night through, trying to hate the book. But I couldn't hate it, despite the ending - it's just TOO GOOD. Thank you mum and dad for giving me this for Christmas.
Dear Mr Knightley (by forgot-her-name) This was pleasant, really nice. I loved the way Sam was a Period Drama and Classics-geek like me. And it was similar to Daddy-Long-Legs, which is veddy good indeed.
The Blue Castle (by Lucy Maud Montgomery) Ah, now we come to the re-reads. I read the Blue Castle again, for the 100th time (approximately) and ENJOYED IT SO MUCH. It's just my own darling gorgeous funny witty book and I'll always love it. :-)
 
Now I'm reading the utterly rosy, amazing, darling, epic Gone with the Wind, and also Persuasion (with Heidi's read-along.)
So yes. In short - I'm reading till so late I don't dare to look at the time, and I'm just loving books and words with all my heart. LOVE YOU, BOOKS.
 
 
A beautifully girlish cupcake in an old-fashioned tea-cup. How can something get better? :-)
 
 
I just love this. I love my room to bits, but I must say - this room is darling. The bed and the trunk and the wallpaper... yeah. Besotted. But still, I wouldn't trade anything for my own room I share with my cutest-button-of-a-sister. My girlish abode and I are thick and inseparable. :-P
 
 
That's all for now folks! Do share some random stuff you enjoy. I always encourage nonsensically random things, you know. :-)

Pollyanna (2003) Review


See there, on the cover of the DVD, a comment of 'the Daily Mail.' They say it's 'dramatic and heartwarming.' Well. it's not. It's not dramatic, that is - it's definitely heartwarming, but not dramatic. It's the kind of fuzzy, happy, sweet, 'ahhhh' and everyone-in-the-family-enjoys-it-except-your-picky-older-brother kind of movie. But it's not really dramatic, in my opinion. But that's entirely besides the point.
 
Pollyanna is this delightful story about yet-another-bossy-aunt and yet-another-freckled-orphan. And to be honest, such stories never grow old. I could read fifty other books about chatty orphans going to strict people and then only perhaps would the idea start wearing off me. It's just a lovely, darling story.
 
The 2003 version is not a famous version, don't ask me why. I haven't seen the famous one, the Disney Hayley Mills one (since I was about six), but I know that this version will always have a special place in my heart. It's just SO adorable. Just SO sweet. It's not perfect (few things are, you know) but it's just so oh-please-see-it-so-we-can-talk-about-it-together. (Gosh, I seem to do a lot of those word-word-word things. I guess I'm in that kind of mood.)
 
Anyway, let's get to the review.
 
 
So you all know the story, right?
 
I know you do, but then you might not, so here's a synopsis à la myself. So Pollyanna, a talkative girl with the positive-est attitude a person ever had, after the loss of her father, finds herself an orphan on her way to live with her Aunt Polly, who's the kind of cliché-book-aunt, only prettier. Nancy, the blonde maid loves Pollyanna immediately, but Aunt Polly shows little love. Pollyanna doesn't notice that, and treats all her punishments as rare treats. It's hilarious. Then Pollyanna meets old Mr Pendleton, an old scruffy mysterious man, and matches him with Aunt Polly, thinking they were lovers in their youth. But it ain't so, and Pollyanna has more girlish adventures along the way of finding her aunts old lover, which includes an injury, calfs-foot-jelly and a beggar boy called Jimmy Bean.
 
There, what a synopsis! I'm dashed proud. :-P
 
 
I've not a clue what the actress-who-played-Pollyanna (there I did that again)'s name is, but she did a pretty good job. Sometimes I thought she kind of just SAID her lines, but then I realised the way she did it was SO Pollyanna-ish, and I perished the thought. Pollyanna was such a darling. It's like, she's SO sweet that it's almost depressing. :-)
 
She had red hair. In the book she was a dirty blonde. Yeah. 'Tis nothing.
 
What I love the most about Pollyanna is her glad-game. It's so adorable, how she teaches it to random city-people. In the book however, she continues to play her glad-game (which is a game where one finds something happy in everything that passes your life and it all started when she got a pair of crutches for her birthday and...) when she's injured, but in the movie she gives up and says that there's nothing good about being crippled. I didn't mind the non-book-accuracy, because I loved the way they did everything, and how city-people came to Aunt Polly telling her to tell Pollyanna how they were playing her game.
 
Oh, and THERE'S A SCENE WHERE POLLYANNA READS PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. It made me squeal soooo.
 
 
Ugghghghg. Aunt Polly is SUCH a mean bean. Honestly, I really admire Pollyanna for being so positive about her. I would have just felt like pouring maple syrup over that stiff, frown-y head of hers.
 
But in the end she's nicer, of course. And her Edwardian hats and blouses and skirts are very elegant indeed, they are. Amanda Burton did a good job. I loved how she found Pollyanna's energetic-ism so tiring. At one point Pollyanna was doing her lessons, reading something loudly and with great gusto (not P&P, that was another scene) and Aunt Polly mobbed her forehead with a white hanky and murmured, 'I didn't know being read to was so tiring.'
 
And she and the doctor... so sweet.
 
 
Nancy!
 
I loved how they portrayed Nancy in here! I'm kind of glad they didn't make her like the weird, Cockney, kind of empty-headed Nancy in the book. She was very pretty and kind and graceful and had a beautiful golden kind of voice which I'd love to possess. And you know what they did in the movie? They put in a Nancy-romance! Yes!
 
The romance between Nancy and the servant Tim was SO ADORABLE. I personally didn't care that much for Tim, but yet it was adorable. My favourite scenes were the Nancy-Tim ones, I must admit. I told you I have this thing for romantic scenes.
 
 
Tim, as I said, was not someone I'd rave over, but he was a great character. Boyish, funny, a bit bashful, always talking about machines (which bored the ladies to death). My favourite non-Nancy part with him was where he tried to convince his mistress to buy a car.
 
Tim: 'I was just telling your lovely Pollyanna that the motorcar is the future.'
Aunt Polly: 'I seem to remember you once telling me the Titanic was the future.'
 
He was so funny, the way he kept on talking about the motorcar.
 
 
Mr Pendleton. He was sour and cross, just like he should have been. Kenneth Cranham did a very good job indeed. I loved it when he adopts Pollyanna's orphan beggar friend, Jimmy Bean (who's SUCH a sweet boy, by the way). Their relationship was so cute.
 
Mr Pendleton: "Go to your room, Jimmy."
Jimmy Bean: "Which one?"
 
 
Pam Ferris as Mrs White! Her scenes were hilarious. Pollyanna knows exactly how to change her life attitude. And oh, the WAY she plays the glad game. I MUST quote.
 
Pollyanna: Here's another one- this one happened to me. A fair is coming to the village but it rained a lot so nobody can go.
Mrs White: I would be glad because.... everyone else would get wet besides me because I was confined to bed.
Pollyanna: That's not playing the game right.
Mrs White: Oh. I would be glad because.... let me think.... because the next time it came everyone would enjoy it more because they hadn't been there for the last time!
Pollyanna: Yes, exactly!
 
 
I . LOVED . THE . DOCTOR .
 
Doctor Chilton was so kind, so handsome, so sympathetic. I don't think Aunt Polly was good enough for him actually. My favourite doctor Chilton quote was, 'I'm doctor Chilton. The good one.' and, 'I hear you've cheered up Mrs White. She's also one of my less giggly patients.'
 
 
There's a deplorable lack of pictures of this movie. Honestly, why is this version so un-famous?
 
Here is a list of some other things I liked about this movie:
~ Mr Collins was in it! David Bamber was in it, that is to say. He was a pastor, again. He was very nice in here, I liked him - especially when he said how unsuitable he found the idea of Sunday school on a Monday. And when he picked up Pollyanna's dog and played with him.
~ Nancy's blue bowed hat.
~ The bunch of roses Tim gives to Nancy under the washing line.
~ When doctor Chilton tells Pollyanna in a dreamy way that, 'It was I who loved your Aunt Polly.'
~ The wedding at the end!!!
~ The way Tim tells Pollyanna who he is. 'I'm the odd-tasks-servant; Tim. My father's the gardener; Tom.' (He has very funny facial expressions as he says these things. Go watch it and you'll see what I mean.)
~ THE WAY POLLYANNA LOVES HER PUNISHMENTS. Hahahaha.
 
 
The scenery: Very Edwardian-ish and lovely. I especially thought Mr Pendleton's garden nice, and the village.
 
The costumes: Very good. Historically accurate, and very beautiful.
 
The quotes: As you might have gathered from the review, there are so many lovely, funny, just-must-quote quotes in here.
 
Objectionable content: NONE. None vatsoever, as the gentleman said when his... oh never mind. I was trying to find something really funny to say the way Sam Weller does in 'the Pickwick Papers.' But I didn't really succeed, haha.
 
Anyway. Please watch this, come back here, and we'll talk about it in the comments. And if you have seen it, I'm delighted! Let's talk about it right now. :-)
 
On a sidenote, what do you think of my new design? I know it's still winter, and it's not as if I'm yearning for Spring (I LOVE winter, you know), but I just felt like trying something different. I know. Again. Anyway, what do you think? Oh, and don't you think it looks like Anne Steel (on the header) has nothing in her sleeves? Ewww. Creepy.
