An Anne of Green Gables Tag...

I just happened to stumble upon a delightful tag hosted by Miss Evie at Over the Hills and as I am a devoted lover of Anne of Green Gables, I simply had to participate...  
Do hop over to her blog on period drama if you would like to join in the Green Gables happiness!

And now, without further ado...

 1. How did you get introduced to Anne of Green Gables?  Let me think...  If I recall correctly, it was actually my mom who began reading Anne of Green Gables to my sister and I when we were just little girls...  I loved it from the very beginning and have adored the Anne Girl ever since...

2. Are you more like Anne or Diana? Why?  I would say a little of both as I have a dreamy, romantic side just like Anne, but generally display my more practical side, bringing out the Diana in me.  However, I am sure most folks would agree that I can chatter on about half as much as Anne!  {{Smiles}}

3. If Rachel Lynde called your hair as red as carrots how would you react?  I quite like the colour red, especially as generally red hair (according to Mrs Lynde, that is) darkens to an auburn as the years go by, and I think that auburn is a gorgeous hair colour!  {{Smiles}}  Just as a side note...carrots are not red...

4. Gilbert or Morgan Harris?  I have always loved Gilbert Blythe in both the books and the television series, although I find him more heroic in the books to have won the heart of Anne...I really felt sorry for him when Roy Gardner came on the scene...

5. Honest opinion on the third Anne film.  I would say it is simply not my cup of tea.  I am somewhat of a purist when it comes to these things and believe that an accurate adaption is key! 

6. Have you seen the New Anne film?  That would be a no...I hadn't even heard of its existence till now.  I probably won't watch it, as I am a firm lover of the original television series with Megan Follows.

7. What in your own words is a Kindred Spirit?  Someone whom you can be truly honest with and will not think any the less of you...  A person who is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow and who will always speak the truth.  Someone who is like...or is...a sister...

8.  Movie Gilbert or Green Gables Fables Gilbert?  As I have not seen GGF, I would definitely say the Anne of Green Gables Gilbert.  I think that Jonathan Crombie was the perfect Gilbert and when reading the books now, I cannot separate the two in my mind.

9.  Does anyone know where we can watch Road to Avonlea online?  Oh, I have heard so much about Road to Avonlea...what a delight it would be to watch it!  Anyone?

10. Favourite book cover?  It would be this one, as I am happy to have it on my bookshelf!  {{Smiles}}

11. The Films or The Books?  Both!  Megan Follows is just...Anne Shirley...wouldn't you agree?  Both are equally charming in their own right.  I love that Lucy Maud Montgomery wrote such a long, detailed series about Anne and then about her children...I find that when reading any of the Anne of Green Gables books, I slip into a world of blissful imagination and oh!  It is a most delightful place to be...

And if you have not yet read Anne of Green Gables...ah, dear you hop over to the library and take out the entire series in one go, for you will not be able to put them down...   {{smiles}}

Happy Sunday!


  1. What a lovely and fun tag post, my friend! Oh, how I love Anne of Green Gables! I haven't read the books *yet*, but they are on my list, but I have so enjoyed the movies. I LOVE Megan Follows as Anne- she seems to just fit that character perfectly. "The Road to Avonlea" is also a favorite! Julia and I enjoyed watching it all last summer on DVD, and agreed that it is one of our favorites...I love seeing the beautiful Prince Edward Island and all the scenery {{smiles}}

    Around the end of November (Thanksgiving weekend for us Americans), there is supposed to be a new Anne movie, which I am looking forward to seeing. Then, sometime next year, there is going to be a new series on Netflix, which shall be interesting as well. Lots of Anne goodness coming to look forward to {{smiles}}

    Hope your week is beautiful and blessed, dear Kelly-Anne ♥

    Love and joy to you!

  2. I loved reading your answers! I definitely agree with you about always picturing Jonathan Crombie as Gilbert now when I read the books, and the same goes for Megan Follows as Anne. They both did such a wonderful job at portraying them, and I can't imagine anyone else as Anne and Gilbert! :)

    Your blog design is beautiful, by the way! You've got a new follower. ;) And thank you so, so much for your sweet comments on my blog! I'm off now to reply to them. :D

  3. I'm also a huge fan of Anne of Green Gables so I really enjoyed this post! Now I want to re-read the books!

  4. I LOVE Anne of Green Gables. Seriously! It's my favorite film and probably book series too! Love. Love. Love. Sometimes I feel like I quote Anne of Green Gables in every life situation. Lol.

    So glad you did this tag. I thought it sounded like a fun one. Maybe if I get ambitious feeling I'll do it. I just have deserted my poor blog for so long.;/

    Take care sweet friend!!!!:)

  5. I love your post today. Riley Blake Fabrics actually came out with Anne Of Green Gables fabric line. It is sew sweet.

  6. Such a lovely post! I too love "Anne of Green Gables"! : ) I truly enjoyed reading your answers to this tag. Over the weekend I watched a couple episodes of "The Road to Avonlea" while drinking tea and knitting. It was the perfect way to brighten up a cold, rainy day. My husband found a few seasons of the Avonlea show through our library system. I think all of the seasons are on dvd. It is a fun show and some of the characters from the Anne movies (like Rachel Lynde and Marilla) appear on some episodes.

  7. Do you know that I have owned this book for years, but never read it? I suppose my book must be the first one in the series, if there is a series. Maybe one day, I will take the time to read it. :) Sending you much love, sweet Kelly-Anne!

  8. Great answers! I like your definition of a "kindred spirit" especially.

  9. Having grown up in Prince Edward Island, this is a post near and dear to my heart {smiles} I grew up with Anne in the sense that I read the books from the time I was a child, and believe I have every book Lucy Maud Montgomery wrote. I have read and re-read them until the pages are falling out of the books, and there was no greater delight in the world than to be able to freely visit the beautiful place where the setting of Anne of Green Gable's took place. Sadly, in most of the movies, the filming doesn't take place on the island! But, the films are still beautiful and delightful to watch. Perhaps I shall go over and be a part of the tag team, something I generally don't do, but if I have time, I think I will.

    Hugs to you today dear Kelly-Anne, truly enjoyed your thoughts about Anne :)

  10. I have a friend who LOVES Anne of Green Gables, so I sent her the link and she did it too! You can read her post here,
