"Sense & Sensibility" {by Jane Austen} Book Club Ideas

 

We had more of a "Sense & Sensibility" week in preparation for book club! Several days before our meeting we had ourselves a little girls movie night to watch my favorite movie of all time. The 1995 version of the book is absolutely  FABULOUS!! Every time I watch it I learn something new about a character that I didn't notice before. Do yourself a favor and get in your pj's, grab some chocolate and watch this movie the next time your boyfriend or husband is out of town!
 
 
Whenever I read Jane Austen or watch one of the movies, I get a little weird.
I tend to speak with an English accent for the rest of the day,  I expect my husband to escort me like a proper gentleman when we are running errands and I imagine myself living in an English cottage.
Those aren't weird thoughts and expectations right?
"I am excessively fond of a cottage; there is always so much comfort, so much elegance about them. And I protest, if I had any money to spare, I should buy a little land and build one myself, within a short distance of London, where I might drive myself down at any time, and collect a few friends about me and be happy. I advise everybody who is going to build, to build a cottage." 
                (The ONLY thing I have in common with John Dashwood!)
 
 
 
I had so much fun being transported into the world of Austen I felt the need to see what inspiration was out there. So I created this Etsy Sense & Sensibility treasury list to get you in the Jane Austen mood!
