Jane Austen and the Idea of a Home
Believed to be Jane Austen's profile.
Thanks to Tea at Trianon, I found this blog, Jane's Austen's World, which opens a door to all kinds of information on Jane Austen, her writings, and her world. In my first exploration, I particularly enjoyed this post on Jane Austen's Description a House and a Home and also this article, "Jane Austen's Idea of Home," which encapsulates what I think many homemakers strive for: "What Jane Austen suggests is that physical facilities will be charming only when there is a correspondence between outward beauty and the inner life."
