Brian:
Your Photo's are amazing. I was looking at Ella's jeweled appearance and wondering if She ever missed that life?

Sometimes....She retains appartments to the Governor's palace and used it sometimes...

how (and why) would she still have any "right" to continue to stay there?   she no longer had any links w/ the post of governor-general?   

ie: after JFK was assasinated here in the USA, his widow, Jaqueline Kennedy ("Jackie-O"), didn't keep rooms in the White House.   she moved-out when the incoming president, LBJ & his family moved-in.   


it just seems a highly irregular thing to do.     i would think it would have been more appropriate for her to "retain apartments" in the (Little) Nicolas palace in the Kremlin and/or Illinskoe....

Thanks Brian! :) Of picture of Ella in emeralds!

I have painted a pretty realistic portrait of Ella (not as grand as Philip Alexius de Laszlo, my favorite painter ----I absolutely love his style and try to copy his technique!)  For my friend who is going to become a Deacon soon and he likes Ella. I made it copied from this picture but she's in a bluish-green blouse (it looks like 1914 style dress worn by her niece Maria Nikolaiovna)  and in pearls collar and a moon shape hair pin. I'll post it as soon as I get my computer at home fix and along with my scanner.  :-\ :)

Great ! Looking forward to seeing the painting !  :)

As for staying in her former apparttments, I guess she just used them if she needs to attend some functions in the Captial. I guess she would like to be reminded of things and life style she gave up. It is one of the complex things about Ella... ???

Is it Ella's or a representation of the kind of pin we were discussing in her veil?

Yes it is very amazing and gorgous but is it clothing or an object? I can't realy see exactly what it is. Ella's dressing is beyond elegant.
