jane austen country


1.10.17 Hi! I am finally back! Ive had a really relaxing summer holiday but now I’m getting back into working. My sister started sixth form last month after getting amazing gcse results. Im so proud of her! Especially her U in latin. I said she should frame that one cause honestly i think if you’re going to get a U in a subject, latin is the best one to do it in.
This is a picture i took in the cottage my family rented for a couple weeks in devon while i did some reading for one of my new units. I dont always get on with my family so i didnt have a great time. Studying and stroking cows was how I sort of escaped it all.
Its good to be back! Happy Autumn!!! Emily xxx


He began to feel the danger of paying Elizabeth too much attention.

   And **drumroll please** this may just be my favourite image I have ever posted. It is it SO IS. Higger Tor was listed as within the city limits of Sheffield, South Yorkshire; which I did not believe because I just KNEW it was in Derbyshire! I KNEW IT. Well, I was wrong, of course, as I generally am when I’m dead certain about something; but in my defence it is 200 metres (220 yards) from the Derbyshire border.

   A tor is a rock outcrop rising abruptly from surrounding smooth slopes of a rounded hill. The word is also used for the hills themselves in the South West of England, where the term originated; particularly the high points of Dartmoor in Devon and Bodmin Moor in Cornwall.

   These colours make me swoon (the purples!) the composition is perfect, and the lighting is breathtaking. I do so hope you like it, but if you do not, that is too bad for you then I am quite sorry to hear it. (Dinky Do’s on flickr)


Jane Austen Raceswap: Mansfield Park
Gugu Mbatha Raw as Mary Crawford

Miss Crawford’s beauty did her no disservice with the Miss Bertrams. They were too handsome themselves to dislike any woman for being so too, and were almost as much charmed as their brothers with her lively dark eye, clear brown complexion, and general prettiness. Had she been tall, full formed, and fair, it might have been more of a trial: but as it was, there could be no comparison; and she was most allowably a sweet, pretty girl, while they were the finest young women in the country.
