Her Heart Did Whisper


I have been totally captured by the modernized version of Pride and Prejudice through the Youtube episodes of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. They have done an amazing job of adapting the story to modern day. But this week *deep, heavenly sigh* was so unspeakably perfect I just have to take a moment and applaud them *standing ovation*. Oh my, it was SO good. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that this week's painting also holds a quote from Pride and Prejudice. {There may be quite of few of these coming through, so get ready; my love of Jane Austen knows no bounds!}

    1. Oh yes, and please let me know what you think. I should warn you that there are still two episodes to go till they're finished; so if you end up watching a lot of them, I don't want you to hate me that you have to WAIT to see the next one. :D

  10. I thought this might have a little bit of a romantic flair when I first saw it. Oh how I love Pride and Prejudice. Love her dreamy cup cake eyes too.
