More P and P Love (with freebies)

Did you know it's 200 years Pride and Prejudice this year?

I didn't... Until dear Ira mentioned it. Oops.

Anyway, because of this celebration of celebrations, I'll be posting some Pride and Prejudice love this year. So stay tuned if you're a fan. Today I'd like to share with you some goodies I found on the internet.

Let's open the book, shall we...

We all know this embarrassing scene:

”At an assembly such as this, it would be unsupportable. Your sisters are engaged, and there is not another woman in the room, whom it would not be a punishment to me to stand up with."

Nor shall we ever forget this one...

Remember Meg Ryan in You've Got Mail?

"Confession, I have read Pride and Prejudice two hundred times. I get lost in the language, words like 'Thither. Mischance. Felicity.' I'm always in agony over wether Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy are really going to get together. Ah! Read it. I know you'll love it!"

Luckely there's always the happy ending...

Here's just the frame of the first book page:

Which I think is a delightful vintage frame for arts and crafts. You're free to use the above images for your work of course, no problem.

Thank you so much for the sweet comments dear friends! And a warm welcome of course to my new followers, thank you for keeping me company here :)

Let me finish this post with some lace love.

More of this will follow...

Hugs and sweet day,

xx Wen


  1. What a delightful post!-200 years old-!
    One of my all time favorite very books! With lines like "you have bewitched me body and soul" - how could it not be?
