November—with uncanny witchery

A quote from The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery: November—with uncanny witchery in its changed trees. With murky red sunsets flaming in smoky crimson behind the westering hills. With dear days when the austere woods were beautiful and gracious in a dignified serenity of folded hands and closed eyes—days full of a fine, pale sunshine that sifted through the late, leafless gold of the juniper-trees and glimmered among the grey beeches, lighting up evergreen banks of moss and washing the colonnades of the pines.

"November—with uncanny witchery in its changed trees. With murky red sunsets flaming in smoky crimson behind the westering hills. With dear days when the austere woods were beautiful and gracious in a dignified serenity of folded hands and closed eyes—days full of a fine, pale sunshine that sifted through the late, leafless gold of the juniper-trees and glimmered among the grey beeches, lighting up evergreen banks of moss and washing the colonnades of the pines."

Bibliophile Pencil Set Featuring Anne of Green Gables

Bibliophile Pencil Set Featuring Anne of Green Gables


I keep running across Anne of Green Gables-themed items in bookstores lately. They seem to be everywhere. Last night, I saw this cool bibliophile pencil set featuring literary quotes by Chronicle Books. It features the art of Jane Mount. It's a set of ten pencils with the green one featuring a quote from Anne of Green Gables: "Tomorrow is a new day, with no mistakes in it yet."

The other nine pencils feature quotes from Pride and Prejudice, Little Women, The Three Musketeers, A Tale of Two Cities, The Art of War, Moby Dick, Frankenstein, The Prophet, and The Marrow of Tradition

I'm tempted to buy a set.

One late April evening

A quote about April and spring by L.M. Montgomery in Anne of Green Gables.

January so far has been a month of cold gray days

A quote about cold, grey, January days by L.M. Montgomery in Anne of Windy Poplars.

"January 28th.

January so far has been a month of cold gray days, with an occasional storm whirling across the harbor and filling Spook's Lane with drifts. But last night we had a silver thaw and today the sun shone."

Anne of Green Gables Literary Quote Pencil Set

Anne of Green Gables Literary Quote Pencils

I ran across the cutest Anne of Green Gables literary quote pencils today. It's a set of six #2 HB pencils featuring the following quotes by L.M. Montgomery's classic novel:

MAPLES ARE SUCH SOCIABLE TREES
I LOVE BRIGHT RED DRINKS, DON’T YOU?
I HAVE GIVEN UP ALL HOPE OF DIMPLES.
PLEASE CALL ME ANNE WITH AN 'E."
IT’S DELIGHTFUL TO HAVE AMBITIONS.
I’M IN THE DEPTHS OF DESPAIR.


I think they'd inspire me to write a poem or story like Anne's "Averil's Atonement." What about you?
