“Special Order: 17 beautiful roses with gold and navy petal edging, all handcrafted from upcycled pages of “Pride and Prejudice.”
In the client’s review, she wrote: “Working with Allegra was a pleasure. She helped me with getting the perfect flowers to enhance the favors for a bridal shower! I was blown away when I picked up the flowers – they are so beautiful and I know that everyone will cherish them…” So happy to create these stunning roses for such an important event!”…/a.16573568976…/2360041760738712/…

Have you ever wondered which word Frank Churchill wanted Jane Fairfax to decipher at the end of the alphabet game in Emma? Check the comments to find out what Jane Austen’s nephew and memoirist J.E. Austen-Leigh claimed his aunt revealed to her family. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Some news on the music of the new Emma. According to a wiki article I checked out….Mid Feb 2020 is the current guess on a release date…
“With a slew of impressive TV credits to her name, Waller-Bridge’s next film project could launch her into another echelon of film composers. She’ll next score Focus Features’ and Working Title’s adaptation of Jane Austen’s “Emma,” starring Anya Taylor-Joy and Johnny Flynn and directed by photographer Autumn de Wilde. Though cautiously mum about sharing too many details, Waller-Bridge promised to “bring [her] swoon.”
“It’s definitely strings and piano, it’s not gonna be anything like what we did [on ‘Vita & Virginia’]. It’s going to be true to period, which is good, because it brings me an opportunity to do my swoon. I’m gonna bring my swoon.”
“Emma” won’t hit theaters until early 2020, but Waller-Bridge praised an early cut. “I don’t want to say too much. But if you’re familiar with Autumn’s photography, imagine that moving. It’s unreal.”
IFC Films will release “Vita & Virginia” in theaters on August 23 and VOD August 30.”…/elizabeth-debicki-vita-virgini…/

“Reading most reviews of my books-the kindest as well as the most disapproving-is like watching somebody in boxing -gloves trying to dissect a flower.”…/a.1015015361…/10157631157036584/…

It’s been 2+yrs since we lost
Robert Hardy.
In one of the worst Austen adaptations on the left, NA ‘1986(General Tilney). One of the best(and maybe the best cast) in S&S ’95(Sir John Middleton).
