Happy Birthday Miss L!

Tweet I am writing this post in honor of my very dear friend Miss L. who on this day is turning 18 years of age! I met my friend for the first time 7 1/2 years ago now, and ever since the first day we have been great friends! We have shared many fun (and sometimes less fun) experiences over the years! Like me, my friend is a fan of classics, costume dramas, beautiful old-fashioned clothes and everything else in that field, and we often have long delightful conversations on these topics! And not only conversations by the way, here is … Continue reading

Do you know of any Jane Austen events?

Tweet I have several plans and ideas about things I would like this blog to contain in the future. One such idea that I have in mind is to have a feature on the sidebar dedicated to various Jane Austen/Regency style events happening in the world. I know that there are a lot of such things (like balls, teas, festivals etc, etc) going on at different places. During my travels  for example I stayed for some months in California, San Diego more precisely, and I came to understand that there is a lot happening there. I didn’t have the pleasure of attending any Jane … Continue reading

My first Regency gown

Tweet I thought I should share with you some pictures of the Regency style clothes I have made for myself so far. I will begin with the first such dress I made.  At first I found the fashion and the style of this era to be a little… well… weird. At least the ladies dresses. But that was before I became a true Jane Austen fan. Since then I have not only become used to the way the dresses looked at that time but I have also grown to love the simple, yet so elegant look that was in fashion during the … Continue reading

Quoting Jane 1

Tweet I had a longer post planned for today, but then for some reason my computer refused to cooperate with me to get that to work. So I’ll leave that post till another day and for today you shall have to content yourselves with a quote from the one and only Miss Austen. I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than a book! When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library. Miss Bingley (Pride and Prejudice) How true! But … Continue reading

Have you watched North & South? If not; DO!

Tweet I know this blog is called The Secret Dreamworld of a Jane Austen Fan, but all the same I will not shy away from bringing up things that might not be absolutely connected to Jane Austen if I find that they are close enough to the subject and I find them worthy of a mention here. One such thing is BBC’s series North & South. I took another opportunity of watching this film when Charlotte was here, as she had not yet seen it and I though that she should. The film has often been compared to Pride and … Continue reading

Back again!

Tweet So my dear friends, I’m back again. My friend Charlotte left yesterday, we have had some lovely days together. In Stockholm we managed to squeeze in several different must-see-sights as well as just spending some time strolling around browsing any nice stores we passed. One thing we visited was the Royal Armoury, located in the Royal Palace. It was not the first visit I made there (nor was it the second…), but all the same I found it most enjoyable. The things you get to see there are clothes, armour, weapons, jewelry and much more that has belonged to … Continue reading
