Our eighteen year old daughter, like nearly all 18 year old girls is beginning to look for her Mr. Darcy!!! She became a fan of Jane Austen's novels when she was twelve, and since has read and re-read all of them. She has worn out our DVD of Pride and Prejudice and now can recite Mr. Darcy's proposal to Elizabeth!! She has seen every movie and television adaptation of Jane's novels......and so have I!!!
It was a beautiful and romantic period in England and we both love to visually imagine it in the city of Bath. Yesterday while in the city, we snapped this photo going over the bridge of the Avon River. It was easy on such a lovely day to imagine Jane and her friends along the river admiring the verdure and sitting in the shade.
Our errands took us to an antique center, near the Bath Assembly Rooms, where Jane probably went for parties and dancing. We had romance on our mind for this errand. We were looking for Victorian period engagement rings for a family member!!!! This is what happens when you visit Bath, Jane inspires proposals and marriage!!
Please come visit our booth at the Santa Monica Flea and Antique Market July 28th and see our Jane Austen inspired pieces.
