Spending time with a dear friend

Tweet I’ve been very pleasantly busy these last few days and therefor have not posted anything. My dear friend Isadora has been paying me a visit and I was so glad to see her! Of course I always am, but this time it has been more than commonly long since the last time we met! We had a great time; talking and catching up on each others lives, taking long walks, baking, and also watching some nice period dramas! We realized, when we were going to decide which period drama to watch (that we should watch anything else was never … Continue reading

Some of my Austen “stuff” :P

Tweet I was looking around my room this morning (my tiny room!) and thought about all the different Austen things I have there. I decided I’d take some pictures of some of it and show you some of my nice “stuff”. 🙂 First of all here are some of my precious books! And a close-up of the strictly Austen books (sorry you can’t see them too well…): Some of my (ok, not only “my” films….) lovely period dramas! My (yes, these are only mine!) fantastic music books! Highly recommended! In my room, a couple of bonnets and a bonnet-to-be. As … Continue reading

Ode to a Nightingale

Tweet A friend of mine (you know who you are ;)) just posted a part of this poem on facebook and that reminded me of it and got me to read it again. It is such a sad but beautiful poem, I decided I’d post it here. Enjoy! Ode to a Nightingale My heart aches, and a drowsy numbness pains My sense, as though of hemlock I had drunk, Or emptied some dull opiate to the drains One minute past, and Lethe-wards had sunk: ‘Tis not through envy of thy happy lot, But being too happy in thine happiness, That … Continue reading

My “Bella Wilfer” dress

Tweet I haven’t exactly been secretive about my wish to make another Victorian dress I believe. I’ve just now finished it! The dress that is… I have no occasion planned (yet) for wearing this, the reason I made it was just purely because I wanted to. Seeing as a dress like this requires quite a lot of fabric, and as I did not at that moment have so much money to spend on it, I needed to find some fabric at a reasonable price. My mom and I went to this store where I have found good cheap fabric before, … Continue reading

Anyone going to Bath for this years festival?

Tweet So are any of you planning to go to Bath for this years Jane Austen Festival? Ever since I left Bath the last time I was there I have been looking forward to coming back again this year. And stay for the whole festival this time! And now it looks like I’ll be doing so! I’m awfully excited about it! I’ll be sharing a house with 7 Dutch ladies for the time I’m there. They are all coming to attend the festival and have been kind enough to let me join them in this house, which is located right … Continue reading
