As a small easter celebration, i thought it would be nice to make something which would involve Miss Jane Austen into this lovely day. After a short while of thinking and planning, i decided that the best way to do this was to create Darcy and Elizabeth decorated eggs. This was easier said than done, as bonnets are a very hard decoration to fashion, especially on a minature scale. Captain Wentworth became a possible option; however, his naval hat would look rather silly. The idea of creating every Pride and Prejudice character was also considered, but even i must admit that it would be taking egg decorationg to an extreme level ( perhaps another time ). Well, enough of my nonsensical ramblings, have a lovely Easter from Miss Wareham and Miss Smith. x
Andrea Galer, Award winning designer who has created the costumes for ITV’s Perusasion (2007), BBC’s Miss Austen Regrets (2007) and the film Mansfield Park (1999) to name but a few, has given us the chance to puchase one of her wonderful designs. These beautiful dresses are enough to turn any young Darcy’s head at this years festival.

We are pleased to announce that we have a new page on Janeite Journal! ‘Pemberley’s Poems’ is a collection of our favourite poems, dedicated to, or even written by the honourable Miss Jane Austen. We have also added a few of our own poems, in which we hope you will enjoy. These will mostly be the work of Miss Smith, as she is more experienced in the subject of writing and language; however, we shall all try our very best to take part in this joyous activity. Here is a small verse written by Miss Smith to start off our newly founded page…Our fathers would banish our books to the fire If they knew how these six filled our heads Female authority? New ideology? So we hide them all under our beds.
Thankyou verily Miss Smith To read more riveting rhymes, please visit ‘Pemberley’s Poems’ under ‘Literary Frivolity’…
