Persuasion

Ok, it’s time for some more insight into me.  One of my favorite authors of all time is Jane Austen.  I have read all of her novels, even her lesser known ones.  I have even read the ones that weren’t quite completed but were by others.  One of my dream vacations (the 1st one would be to go to Italy) would be to spend a month in the English countryside traveling around visiting a lot of the areas Jane Austen wrote about.

I love Pride and Prejudice I think most of all but a very close and mean very close 2nd is Persuasion.  I love the story line and of course the happy ending mainly because I could see this one happening to me.  

This brings me to the latest challenge over at All Things Unity, we were to make anything but a card.  It got me to thinking so I decided to make a canvas including pages from the book with some of my favorite quotes.  I’m not quite done, there a few more things I want to do but I think you get the general idea.

I am an avid reader (go Jane!) and this is so applealing. I have thousands of books and the thought of library-inspired art is so cool. Wonderful, wonderful job, I know you will LOVE living with this! And she was a BRAVE GIRL of her time!
