My fave memory of celebrating Jane is of an
all nighter party with a book imbibing friend in Atlantic Canada.
Living in PEI for a year allowed us to reconnect for most holidays.
On one of these weeklong adventures,
my friend hauled out the entire Jane Austen movie collection
{on vhs of course}
for a marathon night of Jane Austen
{ensuring there’d be some major rewinding the next day}
We weren’t about to waste viewing time with that small detail!
Oh did we have fun~
Every story back to back with Colin Firth, of course, 
thrown in for good measure~
How could we help but remember that party?
Seacoast snacks, tons of tea and laughter over our faves
which, for me, secured their place forever in my movie hall of fame!
Thanks, Barb and Thanks, Jane!
You’ve impacted my life in sooo many ways!
In honour of that life gift,
I would like to offer a small gesture of appreciation.
I will be drawing for a velvet bookmark

for one participant here at Faith Hope and Cherrytea blog.
It will be similar to the example,
but one that I will create for you especially for this 
200th Anniversary Celebration.
