  1. Oh my golly, Anna! I nearly fell out of my chair looking at these! They're so gorgeous and it's hard to believe that they're not actual, mid 19th century photos. :) Beautiful!!!

  9. wow. These photos of the two of you are wonderful. I am new to your blog and love reading but this morning I actually forwarded this post to my sister. Not only did the photos turn out beautifully but the friendship between the two of you is truly touching. Sorry to be a sap but I think that this is pretty cool.

    On another note, I am sitting here in a pair of Bensimmons that I bought on the street in Paris last Oct. They are the most lovely little shoes and I am so glad to know that we can order them somewhere now! Thank you :).
    Very Best, Timshel

  12. Those are top notch. I've seen maybe thousands of originals and these are really spot-on. I especially love the one of you and your friend with the book and the portraits of you alone. Wonderful!

  13. WOW. These are simply gorgeous. I love the first one and the last one especially. Especially the last one - you look perfect, down to the little cuff details and the way your hair is done. Beautiful, beautiful work, all of you.

  16. Beauteous! Your ability to appear as though you've just stepped out of the 19th century never ceases to delight me. I wish I had all your dresses, too (as I've said far too many times before).
