With Valentine's Day coming I would like to share with you a few memes I have made for your enjoyment.  As I was reading Northanger Abbey last night I came upon John Thorpe's "proposal" to Catherine and I thought it would make quite a comical Valentine.
And this is an exasperated, downhearted Elizabeth Bennet.

He is risen!

On this beautiful Easter weekend I want to share with you this beautiful video about our Savior.  I am so thankful for Him and his sacrifice for all of us. I know that because He lives, our lives can be beautiful and happy.


In Russia we have a beautiful tradition on Easter.  We greet each other with "Christ is risen" and the other person  replies "Truly, He is risen".  I love that tradition.  And I believe that He has risen and one day will come again.

Here are a few things I have been working on lately.  
Persuasion.  Capitain Wentworth and Anne walking down the street in Bath.  Inspired by the beautiful closing scene of the 199something Persuasion.
This was a custom work of Captain Wentworth writing THE LETTER and another small custom work of a lady in a Christmas dress.  

 This one is about to go up in my shop.  Opening line of Emma.
