Chawton: Jane Austen’s Home

… during the last 8 years of her life, during which she wrote all of her major novels (and saw four of them published during her lifetime: Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, and Emma).

Right: A replica of the blue dress and bonnet that Jane is wearing

A quilt handmade by Jane, her sister Cassandra and their mother,
and a muslin shawl embroidered by Jane.

And last but not least …

The museum’s resident cat! 😀

June 2021 and Mid-Year Reading Recap

Sigh.  Well, I think posting a monthly (and even half-year) reading recap a full three weeks into the next month has to be some sort of record, even for me, but here we are.  And I admit that at this point I’d even been contemplating holding off another week so as to combine this with […]
