This month's selection is: A description of a lady in literature
(You can read more about the link-up here)
I had originally planned to find a description of Anne from the Anne of Green Gables series. But there are so many descriptions of her, seems like! It was too hard trying to choose just one. And then I came across this absolutely lovely description of Miss Lavender Lewis. She is such a darling old lady and one of my favourite characters in the Anne series. This particular excerpt comes from Anne of Avonlea.

|Miss Lavender's namesake!|
She was a little lady with snow white hair beautifully wavy and thick, and carefully arranged in becoming puffs and coils. Beneath it was an almost girlish face, pink cheeked and sweet lipped, with big soft brown eyes and dimples. . . actually dimples. She wore a very dainty gown of cream muslin with pale-hued roses on it. . . a gown which would have seemed ridiculously juvenile on most women of her age, but which suited Miss Lavender so perfectly that you never thought about it at all.
Do you like Miss Lavender? Wouldn't she be a simply amazing person to meet?
