Happy Birthday Jane Austen!


If you've hung around my blog for any length of time then you'll know that Jane Austen is indeed my favorite authoress. Today is her 235th birthday and I've been honoring her memory in many ways today.

Here are some of the ways I am celebrating Jane today:

  • Watching Austen adaptations (I'm currently watching S&S 2008 but hope to watch at least one other film)
  • Dressing in Regency style (the nearest I can get to it)
  • Wearing my hair in a regency fashion (I made up my own today and it came out rather well!)
  • Taking afternoon tea
  • Reading other's blog posts about Jane (there's a blog parting going on with great prizes!)
  • Solving a Jane Austen crossword puzzle (delightful - find it here!)
  • Blogging and Facebooking about her birthday
  • And generally thinking "Jane-ish" thoughts! :)

A very Happy Birthday, dearest Jane! You are loved!

So how are you celebrating Miss Austen's birthday? Watch this blog, there's more Austen to come!

Your's Very Truly,

Happy Birthday, Jane Austen! 235 years ago today, one of the greatest minds was born! :-)

I will have to go on YouTube and watch my favorite parts of the adaptations of her books.

Aw man! Why did I not think to wear one of my Regency dresses today? grrr.... Oh well. :-)
I'm celebrating my having a quote party on Facebook ;-) and I'm thinking about watching a Jane Austen film this evening!

I love Jane Austen! P&P is my favorite. And the 1995 movie. Though the 2009 Emma isn't bad...and the book is fun.
