I have loved none but you...

Captain Wentworth's letter in it's entirety, hand written in black ink on fancy watercolor paper and pinned up in a display case.

"I can listen no longer in silence. I must speak to you by such means as are within my reach. You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight years and a half ago. Dare not say that man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you. Unjust I may have been, weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant. You alone have brought me to Bath. For you alone, I think and plan. Have you not seen this? Can you fail to have understood my wishes? I had not waited even these ten days, could I have read your feelings, as I think you must have penetrated mine. I can hardly write. I am every instant hearing something which overpowers me. You sink your voice, but I can distinguish the tones of that voice when they would be lost on others. Too good, too excellent creature! You do us justice, indeed. You do believe that there is true attachment and constancy among men. Believe it to be most fervent, most undeviating, in
F. W.
"I must go, uncertain of my fate; but I shall return hither, or follow your party, as soon as possible. A word, a look, will be enough to decide whether I enter your father's house this evening or never."

Captain Wentworth's letter and some ball gown drawings.

I think that Captain Wentworth's letter alone to be a perfect decoration for a box.  But this time I also decided to finish the inside of the box with this 1800-like fabric and some nautical cord and ribbon, to make it even more special.

Two new Regency Ball Gown drawings.

Meeting at Pemberley

A couple of new Pride and Prejudice watercolors I have been working on this week. I really like the gray and yellow color scheme that has been popular lately, so I thought it would be fun to do Darcy and Lizzy in coordinated shades of yellow and gray.

Map of Pride and Prejudice.

I was watching Pride and Prejudice while on my elliptical the other night (I find series are the perfect length for running,  I don't have to check the clock all the time) and this idea popped into my head.  I love maps and I thought it would be so fun to have a map of Pride and Prejudice.  On this artist's rendition of a map you can travel through all the places mentioned in Pride and Prejudice, the real and imaginary ones.  You will see Mr.Bingley's Netherfield, Pemberley, Mr.Darcy's lovely home, Longbourne, a pretty mansion of the Bennets, Gracechurch-street, home of the Gardiners and Hunsford Parsonage where Mr.Collins and Charlote reside in close proximity to Rosings Park.  Ramsgate, where unfortunate Georgianna almost elopes with Wickham, Kent, Derbyshire and even Brighton.

Also on this map you can also see miniatures of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr.Darcy, painted on 140 lbs. cold press watercolor paper, surrounded by a wreath of lovely white blossoms.

P.S. The holidays are coming sooner than you think. Gift certificates are now available.  

P.P.S. Only four days left until the early bird sale is over.  You can get 25% off your whole order by typing EARLYBIRD in the coupon section of your order.
