A Diverting (and Exciting) Discovery...and a Note on Emma

#1: A couple weeks ago, I ran across this highly action packed painting while working on a scrapbook project. It's so very realistic (at times) that I had to share it! (We all found it pretty funny here.) It's by Julien Dupre (French, 1851-1910). I love some of those French Realists--so it's quite thrilling to discover that Dupre did seemingly hundreds of paintings! 

#2: I've been redoing some of my blog design...and having a lot of fun with my sidebar! What do you all think??

#3: The Emma Party is just around the corner! I'm so glad so many of you are hoping to participate--and a big thank you to all of you who have been putting up buttons (and posting!) about it! Feel free to keep bringing plenty of friends along... ;) (as Jack does have plenty of exciting Emma items in his box!) :) Oh! And a quick note. In case anyone was wondering: you don't have to have read Emma to participate. Having seen at least one of the films is completely adequate qualification to join in!

I hope you're all having a most lovely week!!


  1. I know you said we don't *have* to read the book, but your party was the perfect excuse to reread it. :-) (Not that I needed an excuse...she's my favorite Austen heroine.) I just finished the book last night, so, yeah, thanks for the opportunity to fall in love with Mr. Knightley again!

    P.S. I think your blog is classily beautiful. ;-)

    1. Joanna - Oh, good! And yay! I'm so glad! (Mr. Knightley is....yes, well...hem!...we understand each other.... ;))

      And thank you so much for the kind compliment. :)

    2. Yes, I believe we understand each other perfectly. ;-)

  2. I'm half done rewatching the GP 1996 version to post about it for the party! And I miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight try to read "Mr. Knightley's Diary" by Amanda Grange and post a review of that too. Those books go fast, so I might swing it :-D

    1. Hamlette -- Great!! (Wish I could be watching it with you ;)) and I'm so looking forward to your review! Also, if you were able to do MKD that would be fantastic! There's no rush (I mean, you could always put the review up for it near the very end of next week) -- but absolutely no pressure if it doesn't work out.


Oh, you're thinking of leaving a comment! How entirely lovely -- thank you and please do!! :) I just ask that all comments be God-honoring and edifying. (And btw, I LOVE comments on old posts! ;))
