One man's style must not be the rule of another one's. ~ Jane Austen My name is Rita and I admire intelligence, compassion, integrity and a sense of humor while being very aware of my own imperfections. I'm in love with the idea of love in its many forms and I always wish for a happy ending to every story. This is my haven, my view of the world through rose colored glasses. Beware! I post frequently so if a busy dash bothers you my blog may not be a good fit for you. There is no 'theme' to my page other than 'me' so I can be all over the map with what I post. Expect bunnies and sword fights, kisses and guns, babies and armor and even some old movies. Feel free to check out my archives to get an idea of what you'll see here. A good portion of my posts are history related whether it be reenactors, movies or art but I am not a history scholar, I post them because they touch me emotionally or they appeal to my sense of beauty. I'm pretty good about tagging posts that I originate and if you're interested in knights or armor you've just hit the mother lode. Just use the search function on my page and you'll see what I'm talking about. I like to sew and have a particular fondness for the regency period. If you have a question please feel free to ask, I'm pretty easy to talk to, at least I hope I am. 99.9% of these lovely photos are not mine and I always try to give credit where possible. Thank goodness for so many talented photographers and artists who capture all this deliciousness.
