The Emma Party Has Arrived!! (Kick-Off, Tag & Give-away)

So—after sundry adventures this morning (as you can probably all tell from your dashboards ;))—this post is finally ready to go up—bringing with it the Emma Party at long last! And thank you all so much for joining me!!! I’ve been looking forward to this tremendously and can’t wait to share the excitement with you all!! :)

Emma Week Tag

Here are the tag questions. After you’ve answered them (putting a link back here somewhere in your post), comment back here with a link! (And there are a few further details/notes on this lower down under point #4.)

~ Discovering Emma Week Tag ~
1. Have you ever read Emma?
2. If so, is that how you first made her acquaintance? (If not, feel free to elaborate!) 
3. Do you have a favorite film adaptation? 
4. Favorite dress(es) from that film?
5. Share a line you love from either the book or movie/s—several if you like!
6. Is Emma one of your favorite heroines? Why or why not?
7. What is one of Emma’s strengths (good qualities)?
8. Describe in one (or two…or three) sentences, why Mr. Knightley is so wonderful.
9. Why do you think Mr. Knightley and Emma are so well suited to each other?
10. Would you rather spend a week in Highbury with the Westons—on Abbey-Mill Farm with the Martins—or in London with the John Knightleys?

And now, here’s to a lovely week “Discovering Emma!”


  1. I'd love one of the Lila Rose pins!

    Ooooh and I'll do the tag as quickly as possible! The questions are so fun!

    1. Naomi --
      Quick technical question: If I draw someone else first whose preference was also the Lilla Rose hairpiece, do you have a secondary choice? Or would you rather just pass??

  2. I miiiight have done something wrong when I entered the giveaway - I 'entered' *all* of them... I was actually planning to just enter the Lila Rose pin section. Thanks! :-)

    1. Naomi,
      No, you're okay! I'm going to be drawing five winners and then matching them up by hand. But the more items you do on the widget, the more points/entries you get. :)

  3. Yay! So excited for this blog party! I hope I can find time to join in as much as I like!
    I will definitely be doing the tag, though. :) Hopefully I can squeeze in some extras as well!
    The giveaway looks so delightful! I too would love a Lilla Rose hair pin. But I also liked the cameo necklace and your note cards!

  4. All done with the tag! My answers are here.

    I like all the prizes! I actually have the Elizabeth Bennet portrait from Audrey Eclectic, so her portrait of Emma would be neat to pair with it. I like your note cards next-best :-)

  5. Yay!!! Looks like fun! :-)

    I'd love to win the cameo set-- it's so gorgeous! The notecards are also adorable.

    I just finished my answers for your tag. ;-P Looking forward to what the rest of this week will bring!


  6. This looks like a wonderful blog party! I'm hoping to do the Emma Week Tag on my blog this week. (-: I'm super excited!

  7. This is going to be such a great week...I have so been looking forward to it!
    And what wonderful give away favourites are the Lila Rose hairpiece and the satin necklace.
    And I'll definitely be doing the tag, it will be probably be up in a day or two

  8. Awesome!!!!!!! Wonderful event and giveaway! I love the hairpeice and print! :D
    I will be filling out the tag soon! Sorry about all the !! I am VERY excited!

    I'll get back to the games and prizes tomorrow; I'm supposed to be making chopsuey now. ;-)

  11. Such fun prizes! My favorite is Audrey Eclectic's print, but I love the other print as well!

  12. Some lovely prizes! I'd love to win the Audrey Eclectic Emma print, but I'd be just as happy with any of the prizes. Thank you for the opportunity!

  13. Alrighty....I love the Audrey Eclectic print best, but I also like the notecards, and the Antique Fashionista print, in that order. :-)

I'd love to hear your thoughts and look forward to further confabulation. Please just be courteous to one and all. Oh, and I love thoughts on old posts, so comment away!

(Also of late -- what with time being finite, and Life Happening + managing multiple blogs and computer issues and all that -- I sometimes have to alternate between creating new content and replying to comments, but rest assured I'm thrilled to hear from each and every one of you and always hope to reply thoughtfully in full ASAP. <3)
