JANE AUSTEN WEEK IN THE BLOGOSPHERE!


While perusing one of my favorite sites, Jane Austen Today, I was thrilled to learn that The Barefoot Mama Blog will be hostessing Jane Austen week next week, February 23-28Th. I have been in need of a good dose of Austen lately, and just last night started re-reading Emma; the timing of this couldn't be better for me.

With that said, I plan on settling in for a weekend of BBC/A & E Austen movies, embroidery, and lots of hot tea to help shoo away the winter dull-drums which I have been suffering from. Wont you join me?

If you are also a Jane devotee, and would like to participate, please right click and save the image above. You may proudly display this on your blog.

Finally, please stop in daily at The Barefoot Mama Blog for your dose of Jane, including challenges and other fun stuff. There will be a special culmination celebration on Saturday, February 28, so stay tuned!

Persuasion and Sense and Sensibility remain my two favourite Jane Austen movies. I love the colour in those British productions. So vibrant and bright. I love the music over here on your site, and could listen to Etta singing all night....

Love her. I'll definitely check this out. Thanks for the tip.

I have been involved in a Jane Austen book club since last summer. We are reading each of her books in the order they were written. So much fun! Emma is next up!
