What Jane was thinking about..

jane-plate-2-compressed-20161201_102202Cassandra Austen painted her famous sister, but what was Jane staring at?  I like to imagine she was admiring author Carole Penfield and her husband Perry,  dressed in their regency finery for a JASNA garden party. Perhaps Jane was thinking “what an elegant couple. Perhaps I should write a story about them…”

I ordered these personalized paper plates from Zazzle to celebrate Jane Austen’s upcoming 241st birthday celebration this month..

 

About carolepenfield

I'd like to have lived in 18th century England, in a grand country home, but only if I could have the benefit of indoor plumbing and antibiotics.
