Faultless in spite of all her faults.

Okay. We’re back in business.

So remember back in December when I posted my coffee table book wish list? Well, I splurged over the holidays and ordered a copy of Jane Austen: In Style for myself. This book is broken down into sections that describe all the lifestyle aspects of the Regency period — the fashions, the interiors, the foods, and other customs. It has been so interesting to look through, and it gave me a great idea: a Jane Austen themed series of posts!

Of course, as we all know, things got de-railed a bit last weekend, so based on how my week is shaping up, the series is turning into a one-off post. No matter, no matter. Here’s a roundup of some Jane-inspired items I found on Etsy!

I’m in awe of those gorgeous vintage fashion prints. Over 200 years old, these pieces were manufactured in Jane’s time — who knows, she could’ve even seen them herself! There’s no shortage of Austen-inspired art on Etsy. Mosey on over!
