I’ve got another fun Throwback Thursday photo for you this week. My favorite author is Jane Austen, most notably because of Pride and Prejudice. My first overseas trip was with my husband to England in 2002. I knew visiting the Jane Austen House & Museum was a must for my trip to England. In honor of “Talk Like Jane Austen Day” which will be on October 30th, I’m posting some photos from my visit.
We visited the Jane Austen house in Chawton, Alton, Hampshire England where Jane spent eight years of her life. In this home she revised Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility & Northanger Abbey, and wrote Mansfield Park, Emma, and Persuasion. If you’re a Jane Austen fan, I recommend you look at the Jane Austen House website for some more great information and photos of Jane Austen’s House.
Last week I took part in co-hosting the one year Blogiversary Link Party for The Pin Junkie. I shared a photo from my own one year anniversary. It was taken in Whistler British Columbia, where we enjoyed a summer time visit. There was still snow up high on the mountain when we took the Whistler Blackcomb gondola for some sight seeing.
I enjoyed co-hosting Bonnie’s link party and wanted to share some of the fun favorites I had from the party.
Up first is the great Easy Burlap Frame Photo Mat posted by Whitney at This Little House of Mine. I LOVE taking photos during our travels and this seems like a great way to showcase some of your favorite vacation pictures. The white IKEA frames she used are a perfect complement to the burlap and black & white photo.
My other favorite is a merge of my love of books (Jane Austen anyone??…) and my love of travel. Stacking Books shared a post about a kid’s book called Is This Panama? A Migration Story. It has great illustrations and is a cute lesson in migration and geography.
I would love to know if any of you are Jane Austen fans. If so, what’s your favorite book?
