What's Your Answer Wednesday: My Favorite Place in Time

This is the second week of our new meme! You can read more entries or find out how to participate and post your own by going here.

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 f
or 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 th
e 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.

What's your favorite time in history? I'd love to hear about it! Link up here or, if you don't have a blog, feel free to tell us about it in the comments!


  1. History was not my best subject when in school. Now that I am older, I find some things more interesting. I truly enjoyed your vintage feature for today. Thanks for your visit.

  2. I LOVE Ann of Green Gables - - - especially the BOOKS.

  3. I would have to say way back in the times of Anne of Green Gables. Even though the technology wasn't around that is now, it was a simpler time when being highly educated meant something to everyone.
    And a lot of people tell me that if I plait my hair, I look like Anne.
