Anne of Green Gables

The greatest Canadian that never lived.............................

For all Kindred Spirits

I can see it vividly as though I were still 8 years old - the wondrous joy of her world - I so wanted to live in her house - I wanted green gables but we however lived in an apartment in the heart of the city.
My father passed away when I was quite young - so kindly Mathew was someone I wanted ( needed? ) in my life - I had tons of uncles ( my mother came from a very large family ) but they were more the Archie Bunker type - I loved them, don't get me wrong - but I longed for a gentle kind hearted Mathew too. ( Marilla always scared me actually, lol ) I also btw would have settled for an Uncle " Bill " and a Mr French because I did have a Mrs Beasly doll after all.
I had an imagination the size of my little world - filled to capacity - and so I could relate to her.
I read those books - and I reread those books - and writing up this post tonight I realize I want to read them again - I want to get lost in the antics of a precocious young red haired girl from long long ago............

For those of you who loved these books as much as I did, a visit to P.E.I ( Prince Edward Island ) is
mandatory - walking around the grounds - walking through the reproduction old Green Gabled home -
you can just " feel " Anne's spirit all around you.

Here's my tribute to Anne ( with an E - because it sounds more distinguished Marilla )

I started with this


and ended up with this


I used the stencilling I bought this week to do my Parisienne Butcher Block  and I'm just loving the lettering on this -

And the flower is an Ikea wall art sticker set that I bought years ago - I placed the sticker where I wanted it
to go and outlined it with my Sharpie - then removed the sticker and and went over the design to " thicken"
the lines......................


I painted the 2 backplates on the top drawers black - to match the script - but not sure if I should have
went silver - not to late to change it - thoughts anyone?




I love the crispness of the black against the white - ( Annie Sloan pure White )

And really, from the bottom of my heart, I don't care if no one wants to buy it - this one can sit right where it is in my bedroom for as long as it needs to - I get all mushy and goosebumpy just looking at it .
Sorry John, I know it's girly - I'll make you a Hardy Boys something or other lol.

I hope mothers of little girls still read these books to their daughters -
I hope mothers of young girls leave them on their nightstands as soon as they're old enough to read them themselves -
I hope mothers of young daughters take the time to read them again themselves -
And I hope when their finished they forward them on to Grandma because everyone needs a little Anne from time to time.

Though she struggled with terrible bouts of depression for most of her life,  Ms. Montgomery still managed to create this incredible character that will delight girls forever.
Thank you Lucy Maud - for all that you gave with your amazing talent.

A very grateful reader,

  1. I think I am as big of an "Anne" fan as you! I too have read and reread every single LM Montgomery book. I love the quote you chose for your dresser! Hope you get to keep it!

  2. I loved Anne of Green Gables and just bought the book for my grandd not too long ago. What a great makeover on the dresser. You outdid yourself with that project!!! Love it- xo Diana

    ReplyDelete
  3. Another Anne fan here! I couldn't count how many times I've read the books and they get deeper as you get older. For me, it's a toss up between the House of Dreams and Ingleside. I would like to live in Miss Lavenders house, though. Whichever one I settle on, I'll take your dresser with me! ~ Maureen

  4. Dear Suzan!!! I missed you!!! I am finally home!!!
    I loved your dresser!!! I am not familiar with Anne as you because I did not grow up here and this was not a "must read" when I was a kid. But I did see a play the put on in my son's Elementary school, I remember that!
    I read a lot to my son when he was little, and my favourite Canadian author was Robert Munch. I never thought of putting a quote on a dresser, you are really creative!
    I also love the colours you chose!
    Hugs,

  7. Last year around Christmas time, I rented the Anne of Green Gables dvd's from the library and watched all of them while I was cooking and making gifts. I had an Anne of Green Gables marathon. I love the stories and the quaint way she spoke. The speech pattern does get stuck in your head and you find yourself wanting to talk like that as well. Your dresser is a fitting ode to Anne. Beautiful!

  8. I am head over heels in LOVE with this dresser! Beautiful transformation. I'm pinning this one for certain!

  9. I was only introduced to Anne a few years ago, but we became very close. My mom had never met her, and I think that's why I never heard of her. I grew up with Trixie Belden and Cherry Ames. And Buffy and Jodi, just like you. I love the dresser!

    That dresser is sublime! I would leave the back plates black, it's perfect. Using the Ikea sticker is a fabulous idea...hope you don't mind if I borrow it. I have not read that book in 40 years...think I'll pick it up again and thanks for the inspiration...I have a few books I'd like to immortalize!

  23. I loved Anne of Green Gables! And it's nice to hear about other people re-reading their favorite books so you can get lost in their world again. I do that so much!!

  27. If I were forced to pick, Anne of Green Gables would be my favorite book series of all time. It is soo good. Can't wait until my girls are a little older. We will be reading it for sure!
    I love the quote you chose and think the dresser looks fantastic! I like the black at the top, it goes with the quote and flower, IMO.

    ReplyDelete
  28. That is beautiful! Did you actually stencil it? I can't stencil so I'm always looking for other ways to do something like that. I have a dresser that I'm having the devil of a time getting a french graphic transferred on to. I just love your dresser!! I may have to figure out a way to freehand it!

  71. Hi Suzan,
    I am loving your makeover of the chest! LOVE it! I especially love the quote you put on it. I just read Anne again about a month ago. I read the books every once in a while to feed my imagination! *smiles* Thanks for sharing this with me and I'm very happy to 'meet' another Canadian too!

    Blessings,
    Sandi

  72. Aww, I love that book. Ok, that's a lie. I've never read it. But I'm sure if I read it, I would love it! The chest looks fantastic! :)
