Titanic first swept me away in 1997 when the movie came out starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo Dicaprio.
I was not about to go see a movie about a ship sinking and said so to anyone who asked.
It was after weeks of the raves that I finally broke down and went for that first time, and a second time… and well, by the time I was done, I had seen the movie 6 times in the theater. True story.
Since then I have been really interested in all things Titanic. I went to the Exhibit in Florida (and I highly recommend it if you have a chance to go), I have watched and now own several movies, own several books on the subject, two newspapers from the headlines when the ship sank, and Titanic bears.
Unfortunately when I went to write this post for Historical Tapestry, where I believed I have kept these newspapers for years, they were not there. At some point through the years I have moved them and a quick look through the house did not help but I know they are her somewhere.
What I can show you today are the bears that I picked up at a store back in the 90’s. I thought there were only three but Kelly here at Historical tapestry says there are actually five bears, and now of course, hard to find and get.
I also am showing the books that have been pulled down for this 100th anniversary. I am currently reading The House Of Velvet and Glass, but at some point this year I have a goal to read A Night To Remember, a book I hear is a very good retelling of what happened that fateful night, 100 years ago.
Thank you Kelly for allowing me to share a little bit of what Titanic means to me.
