Elegant Escape And Doll Play
So often I get on my blog and just write about things I am interested in and hope that you enjoy what I share. Someone asked me why I write like I do and why I share the things I do and quite simply I write about what interests me and what I think may interest others. Today I ask that you indulge me in one of my interests. The Regency Era and Jane Austen.
I am influenced at times by things I see on TV, Netflix or just surfing the net. Today I share with you some of my favorite Jane Austen Era themed doll items as part of my "Elegant Escape" (the time I spent watching Austen Themed Movies this week) and the Etsy items I found that inspired me.
Thimbles and Acorns, for Regency inspired outerwear for 18 inch dolls. While this pattern is for a more advanced seamstress it is still quite stunning and I love the idea making the hats don't you? Check out this pattern by clicking here for the Thimbles and Acorns Etsy shop.
Doll House Designs Etsy Shop, ready made and ready to ship click here for more information.
Mother of Nine's Etsy shop. This listing is for the "Spencer" only (coat) and you have to see all the photos in this listing to see what I mean!

Thank you for indulging me in my Jane Austen mood today! If you are looking for a classic and wonderful series to read do pick up a copy of any of her works at your local library or book seller. If you are one of my older readers and are looking for some wonderful movies may I suggest the BBC productions of Austen's work on Netflix. I have enjoyed them for years and love that I can watch them at the push of a button when the mood for an "Elegant Escape" hits me!
As with all my posts I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
