Aloha all!

Wow!  More new photos!  Thank you "Tatiana Z"!!!!

I'm lucky because I live in Hawai'i and it is still fairly early in the evening here, whereas most of the U.S. mainland is sleeping now!

Fabulous photos!

Aloha all!

When I first saw these photos yesterday I almost fell out of my chair!  WOW!

I particularly love GD Olga's photo.....I enlarged it on my computer and she looks like an elegant society beauty from around 1920 in it....easy to imagine what she would have looked like had she lived to that age....

The only time I can remember seeing GD Tatiana with such loose hair was in that photo with her and GD Olga...tatiana sitting in a chintz chair with GD Olga kind of leaning over it....they were much, much younger though and looked like they had just woken up.....I really wonder if this photo is her hair or a wig?

Dress up?  Or a play?  Since there doesn't seem to be a great deal of rhyme or reason to the costuming....I'm going with dress up time! 

LOVE IT.....thank you so much!

What a great day it is to be a Romanov buff, right??   So exciting to see these photos, and especially the profile pictures!

Aloha all!

SO exciting!!!  Isn't it just unreal how these photo albums are still being "found" and shared with us? 

I for one, am particularly excited about the profile pictures of the Grand Duchesses....I can't remember where (documentary?) I saw a small, blurred photo of these profile pictures before, but these are large and clear and fabulous!!

Wonderful day to be a Romanov buff!

Aloha all!

Wow!  Amazing!  Fantastic!  Woo Hoo! 

Since my birthday is in a couple of days, I will consider this my birthday present....and a fantastic one it is! 

It find it simply amazing that we continue to "find" unknown photographs of the IF, it just boggles the mind!

Cannot wait!   :)

Aloha all!

A huge thank you to "Tatiana Z" for making these photos available to all of us Romanov fanatics (speaking for myself of course!) on the forum!
They are treasures indeed and each photo opens a little window to their lives that we didn't have before....amazing!

And a big shout out to Laura as well, because I couldn't get that darn Russian site to work on my computer, but with her help, the other link she has done
is perfection!!

A great end to the week.....Huzzahs all around!  LOL

Aloha all!

Has that newest photo been put on the other link yet?  I ask because I can't locate it and once again, I'm getting the frozen, shut down computer when I try to access the link on the one given on the page when I click on the photo......

Stupid me....someday I'll learn more about my computer!

Yikes....I would hope so "Sarushka"  LOL!!

I've never had the pleasure of trying one on, so good to know they aren't as horrendous as they sometimes appear to be!

I know Alix wasn't considered particularly fashionable in either dress nor home decorating.....but I've always loved her sensibility....I guess I'm a clutterbug too!

Aloha all!

I now am trying to right click and "open in new window" rather than click directly on the photo to see it larger....but it opens in the same window I got prior which then gives me a virus warning from my virus software and freezes my computer before I quickly have to shut the whole thing down and try to restart it.

I am obviously computer illiterate or something....either that or that Russian website REALLY doesn't like me!  LOL

Wonderful photos though.....fabulous beyond belief!
