I am so proud of all of my friends who were able to participate in this gorgeous event!
For more information on The Netherfield Ball (for those with access to BBC2 it’s on right now!) please click me.
Today is the 200th birthday of Pride and Prejudice! I am so proud to be able to live in the UK and celebrate this momentous occasion!
I feel it would be a little unfair to use an Etsy photo without explaining what it is and who it belongs too. I have an Etsy addiction, as a creator I feel it’s much better to buy something handmade and original than to buy something mass produced. These little journals are a perfect example of why! I must admit I am quite taken with their beauty, originality, and their price! I am a huge fan of the P&P cover (which I am hoping will still be there by the end of the day as I am very much in love with it) but also of the London cover (and now I am n love with the Juliet cover).
As a regular participant of Regency dancing and a firm costumer of the early 19th I want to wish you all a very Austen day! I hope that no matter where you are in this vast world, the beauty of the written word continues to inspire you. I hope your day is happy and filled with joy and I send love to you all.
So my friend messaged me and said I was on the gift shop page for the Jane Austen Centre and I though right, like that could ever be me. I went to the page fully prepared to correct him and nearly knocked my tea cup over!!
Oh my gosh it is me!!!
I owe a debt of gratitude to Owen Benson from Owen Benson Visuals for this photo taken of me during the Jane Austen Festival Masquerade Ball in Bath.
On Monday I decided I had to go to the London MCM Expo | London Comic Con. I pulled out my sewing machine and went to work.
I present: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
I came, I saw, and zombies were slain. Give me a few hours to wipe the brains off my katana and I will post a making guide on The Mended Soul.
I apologize for having been absent from my blog for so long! Without further delay I present my ball gown worn for the 2012 Jane Austen Festival Ball in Bath, England held at the Pump Rooms in the Roman Bath. I was sewing on it up until the last night but I am very pleased with how it turned out!
