Sisterly Love! @ More Agreeably Engaged

Happy July 5th already.

I am visiting the lovely Janet Taylor at her blog: More Agreeably Engaged¬†with a post about family relationships in Jane Austen’s writings. Do you have sisters? Were you the bossy older sister or the indulged youngest? I was the middle girl who had to wait until I moved out to get my own bedroom. Privacy at last! However, I did miss the pleasant companionship of my sisters. Who knew?

I’ve included a nice little giveaway for those who answer the question at the bottom of Janet’s post. I’d love to hear your replies.

All the best to you!

History in the Making – The Spencer

In the interest of making my husband, John, more fashion forward, I have been shopping further afield than our local community for pieces that would build an expanded wardrobe for him. What I found provided something for the both of us.

As a Regency period historical fiction author, I have interests in the backgrounds of all things early 19th century. Finding a blog post that had snippets of delightfully presented information about the “spencer” was a treat. And, the sweater/jumper is GORGEOUS!!!

I’m attaching a link to the post and have done so with the permission of its author, Philipp Joha of The Bavarian Lion. http://thebavarianlion.tumblr.com/post/131953409258/gentlemen-though-this-blog-was-never-intended#notes
