Oh Darcy!

If you are in our Pride & Prejudice book club, you should be finishing up chapters 11 & 12 this weekend. I confess I am still behind, but I have my tea cup, and comfy chair ready for this evening to get caught up. I'm looking forward to it. Thank you to those of you who have kept up soo well. This book club is plenty open for discussion. Please leave your thoughts if you wish. Also, if you have a facebook account, there is a great Jane Austen club there you may want to join. They keep you informed of all the current events and show schedules. I don't know how many of you watched the Pbs Masterpiece Theatre this summer, but they did all Jane Austens' movies (BBC version) every Sunday night. I taped everyone! I love watching them. Has anyone watched Cranford? I loved it! It's also BBC. You can get it off Netflix too. Is anyone in the Jane Austen society? I've been a memeber for 2 years and they send out the most beautiful newsletters. Click here to join free.
I have often thought about making some Jane Austen themed jewelry. What do you think? Should I try it? I wanted to send some to the society and see if they would be interested in carrying it in their shop. Any suggestions??

Have a lovely JA weekend everyone~

Wow.. sounds like a lovely idea! I can't think of anything off hand..but you could download 'Jane Austen' font!! That would look wonderful in a pendant!
Hope your family is safe and has weathered the storms!

I think it's a great idea to do Austen jewellery!
PS: I've recahed the bit of the book where mr Darcy comes accross as a real snob and just not very likeable, but the cracks are appearing every now and then. Oh dear, next up is mr Collins! Ha ha.

Oh Lori,
Please do the Jane Austen jewelry - that would be just lovely.

I have seen the PBS Masterpiece Theatre shows this summer but missed Cranford. I heard it was spectacular, by the time I caught on I believe it was already well into the series. Thanks for the advice that it's on BBC or available to rent. I will look into it.

Maybe your jewelry could contain some of the poetry Colonel Brandon reads to Marianne? Oh how romantic!
