What Jane was thinking about..

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.

Nothing Like a New Hat to Lift one’s Spirits

I love to find hats that remind me of the 17th and 18th centuries. Here is my newest acquisition.  I can imagine Clare Dupres wearing it to tea at Chateau Montjardin. I found it at a local consignment shop, not ten minutes from my home. Perhaps I will wear it to the Author Book Fair at the Beaver Creek Library on January 28th where I will be signing copies of Midwife of Normandy.georgian-hat-compressed-2
