 ;D Thanks to all! Yep, I've gotten the layout, but unfortunately I cant post it on the web, yet, so I've sent a msaple to GD_42, and Holly, if this site works out, then guess who's up next? Why, Nastya, of course! She really deserves it. (I'd love to make a Naotmaa chain of sites *squee*)
Now I'm working with GD_42 for the content!
If any of you'd liek to submit or comment or help or anything at all (!!) Just email me at

My grandparents receive a catalogue about every 3 months, I believe, called Treasures from a Bygone Era. Its filled with antequie reproductions, and even features a page on Russian pieces, complete with hand-painted balalaikas and reproductions of Russian coins with Catherin the Greats insignia on the backs of them!
But there are many victorian things as well. Mostly, in fact, is victorian/edwardian. And I thin kthere's a page of actually lavender victorian things, I know it sounds crazy, but. I know there is an official site for the catalogues, where you can order things from the site or/and order the catalogue, but I dont know its URL. Maybe googling the name of the catalogues (at the beginning of my post) should do it. I can try, but I have to leave at the moment.

Skandar Keynes also resembles Prince Luitpold of Bavaria!  ;)

*chokes* Why thank you for that honourable mention, Holly!  ;) jk, jk, fangirl joke! Heheh. *gulps*
Anyway here is my belated scan of my grandmothers brother [and my great-grandmother, whom I do not ressemble  ;D]. I think Danny (thats my grandmothers brother) ressembles Aleksei slightly.

^Wise words. I'll post-it-note that. lol
I was speaking to my old phsycholigist the other day, and she was retelling me some of my old meeting with her (I have no idea why) and she kept mentioning how amazed she was at my memory and I didint understand..what she meant, cos, frankly, I have been a bit..brainwashed so I asked her, after absorbing her ranting for hours, what she meant by my having a memory. She said she didint mean that kind of memory..but a memory that went deeper that others'.  And Im thinking 'Oh no..its another hippie..phsycholigist..type..' and then she went on to make it clear that she believed in reincarnation and that she meant I had memories of past lifes what go deeper than others' who are lucky enough to even have an ounce of a memory from a past life..and then she went on to tell me how I always would have these dreams that I would speak to her about (I was about 7 or 8 when I would go to her. Now I go to one that specialises in my needs. So we would talk about not very important things liek dreams, in this lady's office). Just chit-chat, but anyways she tells me now ( ::) ) how important they really were and what they meant. She says that I would always have dreams underwater. And sure I have this really huge memory of one dream I had in a ballroom that was underwater, swimming with a blonde toddler in a sailor suit (I diidnt know about the Romanovs at the time) but I didint think that I had had other dreams that even had to do with that one dream in the underwater ballroom. She told me that underwater means the mothers womb and that she realises that that dream I had of beling in an underwater ballroom with a boy in a sailor suit means that when I was urm, I guess ,'seat\rching' for my mother in this life (I dont knowin what other way to put it), wanted to go back and be born into something that had to do with, well we think, the Romanovs, and..well its really hard to explain.  Im not quite sure what she meant, but it was that me, as in my soul, I guess, wanted to be born into something Romanov-related, and of course when I was 'searching' for my mother (before I was born..ugh this is complicated), I didint know what the Romanovs were unless I had something to do with them in my previous I'm do we even know that that one dream of the sailor suitted boy in the underwater ballroom was Romanov-related (meaning..I guess, if the boy was a Romanov)?
But anyways I just thought I'd share that.

I totally agree with you, Nanastasia..I mean, no one will ever know for sure who was/is a Romanov or who wasn't/isn't..or even if they were reincarnated. But, anyway, if it's any comsellation..I don't believe I was a Romanov, but somehow had a relationship with them in a past life.

Well maybe it depends on how many things Olga had..especdially being the oldest and all.  Like FA said, we have to look at it the standards of their time..not ours.

Yay for support! lol Well here's my first try at a collage with photoshoppe..the only one I've ever done was in Paint.

Tsarevich Aleksei Nikolaevich Romanov

And I'll get working on those colourbars soon enough! I only have 12 days left of the photoshoppe trial!

Ugh, I wish I could profile wont let me! GD_42, I emailed you on Hotmail, though. And, Isa..Yahoo;D.
Anyway Im currently making a collage of Aleksei..I'm trying different blending techniqes I found out for myself. Hopefully I'll have it done by tomorrow. I also have plans to make colourbars for each of the GDs with one word to describe colourbar for each of OTMA. Sort of a tribute to their individuality.  :)

Isn't it Mossolov who writes that Anastasia had all the markings of developing into a truly great beauty but that her beauty faded in adolescence?

Well doesnt that happen to the best of us? ;D If you've gone through've probably experienced weight losses and weight gains...bad hair days...days when ur nose is flat and wide..days when it is thin and sharp..days when ur eyes are huge and round..days when ur eyes are squinting..days when ur puffy, bloated, and red..days when ur just not urself..I think that Anastasia most noticably went through these sort of things. Which makes me admire her even more. But I personally dont think she was ugly at all. She would've looked alot like her mother.
