There are several posters with books quotes that are never said on the series...
I don't have a problem mixing quotes from the book with pictures from the show. I use to do that a lot in my own RTA wallpapers. I don't care for the citation, "Sara Stanley, Road to Avonlea." If they are going to quote the book, then credit the book. I would love to have another photo book in the same format as the Avonlea Album. The pictures in that book are gorgeous and the quotes from the Story Girl and the Golden Road are matched appropriately. Why go to the trouble of creating photoshopped images when the originals are far superior? And the Christmas poster? Is looking at an elf painting a puppet supposed to remind me of RTA? Designing desktop wallpapers is one thing... it's an entirely different matter when choosing images to be put on collectors plates and posters.

I cannot for the life of me ever imagine Felicity wearing that hat...

And shouldn't the quote on that green poster say, "The sharp blue sky shone", not "The sharp blur sky shone"? How can something be sharp and blurry at the same time??

Yeah I agree they should have properly cited the book. They did for the Anne posters, those one that had quotes from the Anne books that weren't said in the movies they cited the book. Yeah the hats are strange for either Sara or Felicity because they never wore them. I noticed that typo, too. I would much rather have seen real photos than photoshopped ones.

:lol: You're right. I just did a quick search and found this phrase was the first line in the first paragraph of 'Great-aunt Eliza's Visit' from the Golden Road. That's too funny.

It was a diamond winter day in February--clear, cold, hard, brilliant. The sharp blue sky shone, the white fields and hills glittered, the fringe of icicles around the eaves of Uncle Alec's house sparkled.

I like this DVD Holder with Strap which can also be handy on a cold winter night.

:lol: . I suppose if it gets too cold, I can always burn the dvd with 'Christmas in June' on it.

It's been a while since we visited this subject, but Anne Inc. is still thriving!

I don't quite get this one. A cracked slate face scrub? Anne hit Gilbert over the head with a slate. She didn't run a washboard over his face! This is a stretch.

With the Cracked Slate Face Scrub get rid of stubborn dry skin and imperfections while treating yourself to a unique and natural blend to call your own.

And then there is Gilbert's cologne. I've seen Anne of Green Gables, but I don't recall Gilbert's scent?

Gilbert Blythe Avonlea Cologne - $65.00 USD
https://shopatsullivan.com/products/p003

You will be dreaming of summers in Prince Edward Island with this unique signature blend. With woodsy top notes of cedar and citrus, this clean crisp scent will keep you coming back for more. Much like Gilbert Blythe, this is a classic scent that will never go out of style. Complete your ensemble with a spritz to the wrist and neck before you head out the door. After all, you are never fully dressed without a scent.
I don't think it's there anymore, but I believe they used to have Marilla's perfume? Did Marilla use anything beside soap and water? It must not have been a big seller.

LOL...I am laughing because I do not get it either. It sounds like a April fools joke and yet I know it isn't.

Lol, it makes me laugh too. Still, it doesn't top this ad:
