Today's question is: "What is your favorite time period(s) in history and why?"
I'm a real history buff so it was difficult for me to narrow it down to just one era. I have favorite things about a lot of different time periods but today I'm going to focus on the Edwardian days.
The Edwardian era was the time in history that lasted from 1900 to just before 1920. Although King Edward VII of the United Kingdom, for whom the era is named, died in 1910, the 8 or 9 years following are often included in the classification, "Edwardian".
This is the time of Anne of Green Gables and the Titanic. Beatrix Potter was writing the Peter Rabbit stories during this time and the Wright Brothers were perfecting their flying machine. These were the days of Einstein, Freud and the military brass band. I especially love the clothing of this period in history. The womens' dresses were so lovely and romantic and their hair was done up soft and wispy. I love the jewelry and jeweled accessories like hair combs, purses and shoes.
