Truth be told, I’ve never struggled over a living in post as much as I’ve struggled with this one. Every girl who holds a small but eternal burning flame in her heart for Mr. Darcy understand that Pride and Prejudice is not something to be taken lightly. I could have spent uninterrupted weeks on end searching the interwebs for the most perfect and fitting things for this post and it wasn’t until I got a sweet little email nudge from Grace that um…. my post was already two hours past due that I finally said enough is enough and called it a day.
Anna Griffin fabric $9/yd, mirrored sconce $135 each, french country footed bowl $39, glass cloche $99, cement candle sticks $79, hawthorne wingchair $2695, adoptable irish wolfhounds, riding boots $189.
For girls like us who care about these things, it’s important to note the epic war raged between the die hard BBC miniseries P&P fans and the Keira Knightly fans. All I can say is that Colin Firth will always be my Mr. Darcy. But I will allow that the 2005 version is mighty pretty, Keira or no. Now that I’ve exposed myself as a girl who spends most of her free time home alone with cats and a pint of ice cream comparing and contrasting various Austen adaptations, let’s pretend we never had this conversation, shall we? Thank you. -amy m.
