Jane Austen Festival in Kentucky

Tweet This morning when I turned on the computer I found a lovely invitation lying waiting for me, from Bonny Wise of the Jane Austen Society of North American Greater Louisville Region. An invitation to their third annual Jane Austen Festival which will take place from July 10th to 11th. It sounds really wonderful and I would so like to go!!! I am afraid that unfortunately I won’t be able to make it this year, the way things look right now it would be rather difficult to bring that about.  But I am hoping that since this apparently is an … Continue reading

Meet Jennifer, another Jane Austen fan

Our Mutual Friend

Tweet I promised you that I would write a post letting you know what I thought about Our Mutual Friend once I had read and watched it. And since I have now done both, here goes.

In my own personal experience of reading Dickens I find that it takes me about half or 2/3 of the book before I feel like I’m really in to the story. Before I am caught up … Continue reading

My new “Chanel” :)

Tweet So I have just now completed the first of my sewing project that I’ve been working on with my personal ” sewing coach” Elisabeth. Or rather, my first outfit. As this project consists of two pieces and since one of the pieces was completed several weeks ago. So without further ado, here is a picture! I did the skirt first. The pattern I found in an old Burda magazine. I was looking for a pencil skirt pattern and fell for this one as the little tucks in the back were just too cute! The fabric it’s made of is … Continue reading

A walk through historic Örebro

Tweet My dear mama and I have just come back from the nearby town of Örebro. We went there yesterday to a concert with a Swedish folk music group, (they played a kind of modernized folk music, it was very good!) and since it got quite late we stayed the night with my grandmother who lives there. It isn’t far, but we were in no mood for driving back anyway. This morning we walked about town looking in shop windows (alas mostly in the windows as the majority of the smaller shops that we looked at were closed today) and … Continue reading
