Pemberley Leaking…Mr. Darcy Temporarily Evicted and a Giveaway


I have a closet that my friends call Pemberley. Inside is a treasure trove of all things Jane Austen. On the floor I have two three-tiered bookshelves that holds my personal Jane Austen Library as well as the collection of goodies I have picked up for giveaways. On the top shelf, I keep large boxes of watercolor pots, watercolor pencils, compressed pastels, stacks of paper, and rolls of canvas.

A little over a week ago, Pemberley (my closet) sprung a leak. Okay leak doesn’t really describe what occurred, it was more of a torrential downpour that brought with it huge chunks of the plaster ceiling and turned my watercolors into something that resembled a melted rainbow that streamed down the walls and puddled on the floor.

Thankfully, the top of bookshelves extended over the shelves which means that the cascaded over most of my books and giveaway goodies. However, Mr. Darcy (as well as the rest of Jane Austen’s heroes and heroines) were temporarily evicted.

Most of the books that did receive an impromptu shower were paperback duplicates. I am hoping that I can salvage the pages and turn them into some kind of artwork.

However, I do have some good news to report; the blocks of paper that I ordered for printmaking finally came in and I have once again started putting them to good use. This is where the giveaway comes in.



I have 1 8x10 print of Darcy’s Proposal to giveaway.
