Friday Fancies

Are there any signs of spring popping up where you live yet? The other day I noticed some tiny green shoots on one of the shrubs in my backyard, barely visible amidst all of the dead leaves. Even though it's only the first day of March, seeing them may just be enough to make me keep my eye out for some spring clothes as I'm out and about this weekend.

Here are some other things that caught my eye this week:

If there are any trips to New Haven in your future, Yale's British Art exhibit on Edwardian opulence looks interesting.

A recipe fit for Jane Austen (plus a little glimpse at what her culinary life was like).

Plum & Ashby is a charming online shop from England, made more appealing by their canine mascot, Bertie.

And The Audience starring Helen Mirren looks like a funny play about Queen Elizabeth II--maybe it will make it's way to Broadway?


  1. Spring has arrived in Phoenix! It is sunny, the birds are singing and it is supposed to be 80 degrees tomorrow.
    The Edwardian opulence exhibit looks amazing - if only....

  2. The exhibition at Yale sounds intriguing as does the play with Helen Mirren. Spring is almost here...

  3. oh my goodness!!! I'm in love with Bertie!!!

  4. These are such great links - especially that Jane Austen one, just fascinating.
