Anne of Green Gables was my childhood hero and I still occasionally dig out LM Montgomery’s series to read over a cup of tea and a biscuit.

When I saw this picture by Mikael Wardhana, it immediately reminded me of Anne’s dream to one day own a dress with puffed sleeves.

“Oh, I AM grateful,” protested Anne. “But I’d be ever so much gratefuller if–if you’d made just one of them with puffed sleeves. Puffed sleeves are so fashionable now. It would give me such a thrill, Marilla, just to wear a dress with puffed sleeves.”

Personally, I like the sleeves AND the bike!
