Black & White Sunday: Elegance

This is Maggie. She was featured on this blog earlier this year on a Thursday’s Special post.

Here is some elegant music to go along.


If you want to join my Black and White Sunday, feel free to grab the widget bellow and post a photo (or several of them) for this or some other theme of your choice. Just make sure it is black & white and link it to this post.

    • and you showed me your doll πŸ™‚ Wonderful photos, dear Suzanne! I like the first one most and I posted it here (where she looks like a girl most ;))

    • A blogger friend shared that piece of music with me πŸ™‚ Maggie is not the greatest looker in my collection (or not to me at least) but she is one of the strongest personalities :D. I have to admit I prefer another Henry James’ heroine – Kate Croy πŸ™‚

    • πŸ™‚ I think it is cool that she looks like a woman and not a silly little doll. Whoever made her managed to show character and determination in her face πŸ™‚ Thank you dear, Sue. My best wishes for a nice and warm Sunday to you!

      • Thank you Paula. We are in California in the warm sun and flying home today to a snowstorm. Winter always has it’s way. Happy day to you too!


  2. I’m completely shamed. I thought “Maggie who?” And then I flicked back to your other post, and it was James. I wrote a thesis on the man fifty years ago, and I know NOTHING. I’ll have to go and reread – and I don’t think I have the will or the stamina, of maybe even the life-expectancy.

    All this soul-searching provoked by your lovely photo, so sharp and clear. Two words you’d never apply to James’ prose style!


    • I started replying to you and then I lost my reply. Meg, if I had known it would make you guilty about not remembering her I would have chosen an artichoke photo for this Sunday post. Surely, one must not read everything by a man to write a thesis on him. I only took a pic of Maggie cause she is on my shelf. She is far from my favourite Henry James’ character Kate Croy πŸ˜‰


      • I laughed and laughed and laughed at the idea of an artichoke instead of a James character. I suspect “The golden bowl” was one of three novels I focused on, although I can’t find the paperwork to confirm it. Thank you for considering my feelings so superbly!


    • Oh, this is beautiful and elegant and fragile. I love the way the light shines through its petals. Thank you, Ese. Great Sunday to you too!


  3. I love seeing your beautiful dolls Paula and you take such stunning shots of them hon. The B&W makes her look even more special. πŸ˜€

    Have a lovely Sunday hon. πŸ˜€ β™₯

  5. Nice doll shot Paula. I hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday. We just came home from a walk longside a river. I didn’t shoot a lot, but I did get some good shots.

    • πŸ˜€ I think you are right, Alessandro. All the dolls that I converted in B&W look better in that version – almost person-like πŸ™‚ I know you are not partial cause of your own inclination to B&W.


  9. ‘Elegance’, said with a French accent and not the English model, Paula. She’s exquisite- such a lovely enquiring expression! And great music πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing.
    Your ‘rogues gallery’ below looks very tempting too. While I’m attempting catch up, this is as good a way as any. πŸ™‚


    • Yes; I agree, and thank you for noticing it Hilary. I was lucky to find not expensive collection of literary heroines – there were supposed to be 45 of them, but the series was discontinued after 15th doll – a shame. I have already posted some of them. Some day soon I will assemble them together in one post πŸ™‚
