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.
I have this feeling that tomorrow theme might end up being one of my favorites I’ve ever done.
Girl Reading by Alfred Émile Stevens
The text is the last paragraph of one of my favorite articles entitled: You Should Date an Illiterate Girl by Charles Warnke.
EDIT: OH GOOD LORD. Why don’t you try READING the entire article before you judge based on this one paragraph” It is called SATIRE. It is not meant to be taken so seriously. To all of you who have gone way off the deep end you look silly.
I linked the article for a reason: http://actmind.net/blog/2011/02/you-should-date-an-illiterate-girl-charles-warnke/
