Cassandra Austen painted her famous sister, but what was Jane staring at? I like to imagine she was admiring author Carole Penfield and her husband Perry, dressed in their regency finery for a JASNA garden party. Perhaps Jane was thinking “what an elegant couple. Perhaps I should write a story about them…”
I ordered these personalized paper plates from Zazzle to celebrate Jane Austen’s upcoming birthday celebration this coming December.
