An Austenesque Holiday Season!First in a Series of Holiday Gift Special Features:Featuring Janet Taylor’s 2017 Calendar
by Barbara Tiller Cole
If a magical transport could transport us to the Northpole this time of year we might catch Santa checking his list twice for your name! Have you been naughty or nice? Maybe it isn’t too late for you to convince him not to leave you a stocking full of coal. But, if you aren’t so sure what Santa’s decision will be, then it might be time to buy some things for yourself or drop some hints to your family. Perhaps it might be time for you to purchase some Austenesque gifts for your friends?
From now until Christmas, Darcyholic Diversions will be featuring posts to enhance your Austenesque Christmas.
The first stop is with Janet Taylor. You may remember Janet’s post here, confirming her Darcyholism, but if you don’t here is the link to her post:
A blessing for the type of work I had for awhile was the gift of travel. It has allowed me to meet many Austen enthusiasts, authors and artists. One of the specials friends I have made along my journey is Janet Taylor. The first time was in Austen as we shared a meal at a restaurant where Janis Joplin got her start, Threadgills. While eating great Texas country fare, we talked about her art and her dreams of what how she would like to use that art.
