Anyone adopted any "Romanov" habits/sayings?
« on: May 27, 2015, 03:03:55 PM »
My friends and I used to refer to our "monthly visits" as Madame Becker like the Tsarina and her daughters did. :D

Anyone adopt any other names, habits, etc?

Not being particularly religious I don't cross myself often, but I think my Romanov and broader Russian history fascination has influenced me enough to where I make the sign from right to left now rather than left to right....does that count?

I also refer to "Bekker," romafan96.  Dorky, I know, but what can I say?

I try to imitate their photos from time to time... Attempting to pull off the no-smile-but-still-elegant-look.

It fails.

I believe you get it right Kassy, but you are humble to admit it ; )
Include me to the ones who use Becker.
I use nicknames given by Alix to Alexei to refer to my babies -(stuffed toys). I call them Babykins, Sunbeam, Agooweeone.

Amazing colored fotos  by the most wonderful Yelena Aleksandrovna. Endless thank you very much!
