One of my favorite quotes regarding knees comes from L.M. Montgomery's book, A Tangled Web.

"A thoroughbred, every inch of her. Showed her knees too much, of course. But at any rate knees that could be shown. Not like Virginia Powell's knees - knocks that affronted the daylight."

(I am really enjoying this blog. It has been an inspiration to me to attempt to act in a more ladylike manner. Thanks! And please keep up the good work.)

Hello Mrs. R.!
I hope that you enjoy the books... The Victoria book is from our library too:) I am thinking about picking it up on Amazon though. I miss Victoria magazine so much. My mom and I subscribed for years, but tossed old issues without thinking:(

Hi Joanne!
What a great quote! I haven't read much of L.M. Montgomery (just Anne of Green Gables and Kilmeny of the Orchard), but after that quote, I think I'll have to borrow a few from the library! Thanks for the recommendation! Thank you for the complient too!

Thank you Mrs. B.! You are too sweet:)

I totally agree, Miss Gerund! I have been enjoying your blog as well. I confess that I don't have the greatest grasp on grammer, but I think that I'm learning a bit by reading your blog!!

I could not agree more! I strive to keep my knees covered at all times. I really hope this catches on with the younger generations.
