About

The most important (and I dare say obvious) thing about me in connection to this blog is that I am a devoted fan of Jane Austen and everything around her and her books! To read about my personal “discovery” of Jane Austen’s world please follow this link: http://myaustendreamworld.com/?p=80.

Appart from that I can tell you that I am an 26 year old Swedish homeschool graduate with a big passion for singing, playing the piano, sewing and reading, dancing and traveling and many other things. Right now I am living in Göteborg (Gothenburg, Sweden’s second largest city) together with my New Zealand boyfriend Andrew while I am doing a two year course at a school here on “Historic Dress and Costume for the Stage”. So consequently this blog will feature quite a lot of sewing projects, but also movies and tv-series, events i attend, estates we visit and whatever else strikes my fancy to write about.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you will enjoy your visit here and honour me by coming back soon again!

Most sincerely,
Aurora

    Hi Aurora,

    Sorry to bother you but I’m doing a piece for BBC News on the 200th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice. I am presuming you are based in Sweden but just in case you are in the UK – I am looking to interview a very enthusaistic fan of all things Austen. All the best, David Sillito

    Hi Aurora,

    So happy to know a real devoted fan of Jane Austen. I’m from Chile and it’s really difficult to find someone with the same passion down here. 🙂

    Hello Ruth,

    Hello Aurora!

    I just discovered your blog but I have read some of your posts and am enjoying them. I read Pride and Prejudice when I was twelve and loved it! I decided to read all of Jane Austen’s books after that. The only one I haven’t read is Northanger Abbey which I listened to on tape. I have also watched the 1995 BBC Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle and the 2008 BBC Sense and Sensibility with Hattie Morahan and Charity Wakefield. They were both very good. 🙂

    By the way, I am home schooled also! I’m in ninth grade.

    Hello Molly!

    How nice that you commented! I am glad to hear that you found my blog and are enjoying it. 🙂 Jane Austen AND home schooling, sounds like we have some things in common! I was 14 when I first started reading Jane Austen, and just like you I decided I had to read them all after that! They are just so good!

    All the best to you,
    Aurora

    Hi Aurora, like your blog very much. Why don’t you write articles anymore? :'(

    Hello Queen Vicky and thank you or commenting! Made me very happy to see! I’ve been not writing for the longest time I know, I think I just got into a bad place with my blog and struggled getting back to it. But now a couple of days ago I’ve just started doing some work on it again, so I will be writing again! Stay tuned or new posts coming in the next few days! 🙂
