Maude Fealy

Does anyone else out there in blogland find Maude Fealy fascinating as I do?  Ever since I saw this photo of her on a collage sheet ages ago, I always wondered who she was.  She's stunning isn't she?

A few months ago I came across the same photo with her actual name.  I, of course, had to Google Maude Fealy!  Maude Fealy, actually Maude Hawk was an American stage actress born in Memphis, TN. in 1883.   You can read more about her here.  More lovely photos of her here.  This is a collage piece I just finished with 3 photos of Marvelous Maude!  Thanks for looking!

I have read, I believe, that she was L.M. Montgomery's inspiration for Anne Shirley, of Anne of Green Gables. And yes, I am fascinated too. I stopped by because I noted that you participated in the past in the Cottage Charm Giveaway and I am hosting my 4th annual Delightsome Cottage Charm Giveaway. I am providing a LINKY for any who'd like to add their giveaway. You can see my giveaway here:

I hope you have a blessed day,
