Merry Christmas!!

Tweet Just checking in with you all to say MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful holiday season and get to spend it in the way you most want to. Here are some pictures of a recent project of mine and Andrew’s, a Regency gingerbread house! A fun and challenging project that took a grand total of 8 hours to complete, but I think it  was worth it.   Obviously we had to dress appropriately for the photos! Apart from the crack that makes it looks like the house has been through and earthquake it turned out … Continue reading

Austenland

Tweet Just a quick post to ask, has anyone seen this yet? I haven’t because it is not out yet in Europe, and it might not come out at all in cinemas here in Sweden. But as I understand it in the US it has had its premiere. I’m just so curious as to what it’s like. Its got the potential to be a really funny and enjoyable movie, and I hope it will be. And something we should all be able to relate to, obsessed fans wanting to live in the world of Jane Austen. Haha Anyway I just … Continue reading

The Lizzie Bennet Diaries

Tweet Ok so I know that sometimes I am a bit behind everyone else when it comes to watching or reading things that come out, far from always, but sometimes.

Spreading the word of Jane Austen

Tweet You know when you like something so much you can’t stop talking about it and you just want everyone else to like it too? Well that’s pretty much how it is with me and Jane Austen. If you are reading this blog then you are already aware of me being just a tad bit obsessed about this wonderful authoress and her world, and I do like to “spread the word” of Jane Austen to as many people as I can. A couple of days ago I had the final test/exam to do in a course I have been doing … Continue reading

The Many Lovers of Jane Austen

Tweet Didn’t I say I would get better at writing more frequently…? Well, seems I have not… Once again I will try to defend my case by saying how very busy I’ve been. And this being busy has also (sadly) meant that I haven’t had the chance to do as many Jane Austen related things as I would wish. But I feel we are moving towards better times when it comes to that though! A few Jane Austen related things however I have managed to squeeze in (couldn’t live without any altogether now could I?). One such was I got … Continue reading
